1 Corinthians 13:4-134 aLove is patient and bkind; love cdoes not envy or boast; it dis not arrogant 5or rude. It edoes not insist on its own way; it fis not irritable or resentful; ▼
▼Greek irritable and does not count up wrongdoing6it hdoes not rejoice at wrongdoing, but irejoices with the truth. 7 jLove bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, kendures 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 lwe know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but mwhen 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 nnow we see in a mirror dimly, but othen face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as pI have been fully known.
13So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
