1 Corinthians 13:4-13

4 a  Love is patient and b  kind; love c  does not envy or boast; it d  is not arrogant 5or rude. It e  does not insist on its own way; it f  is not irritable or resentful;
Greek  irritable and does not count up wrongdoing
6it h  does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but i  rejoices with the truth. 7 j  Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things k  endures all things.

8Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9For l  we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but m  when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12For n  now we see in a mirror dimly, but o  then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as p  I have been fully known.

13So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
