1 Corinthians 13

1 Corinthians 13:1  
If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don’t have love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.

1 Corinthians 13:2  
If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don’t have love, I am nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:3  
If I give away all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don’t have love, it profits me nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:4  
Love is patient and is kind. Love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud,

1 Corinthians 13:5  
doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil;

1 Corinthians 13:6  
doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;

1 Corinthians 13:7  
bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.

1 Corinthians 13:8  
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with.

1 Corinthians 13:9  
For we know in part and we prophesy in part;

1 Corinthians 13:10  
but when that which is complete has come, then that which is partial will be done away with.

1 Corinthians 13:11  
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child. Now that I have become a man, I have put away childish things.

1 Corinthians 13:12  
For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, even as I was also fully known.

1 Corinthians 13:13  
But now faith, hope, and love remain—these three. The greatest of these is love.
