1 Corinthians 13

The Excellence of Love

If I speak with the a tongues of men and of b angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a c clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of d prophecy, and know all e mysteries and all f knowledge; and if I have g all faith, so as to h remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I i give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I j surrender my body
Early mss read that I may boast
to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.

Love l is patient, love is kind and m is not jealous; love does not brag and is not n arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it o does not seek its own, is not provoked p does not take into account a wrong suffered, q does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but r rejoices with the truth;
Or covers
t bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never fails; but if there are gifts of
Lit prophecies
v prophecy, they will be done away; if there are w tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.
For we x know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I
Lit have become...have done away with
became a man, I did away with childish things.
12 For now we z see in a mirror
Lit in a riddle
dimly, but then ab face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also ac have been fully known.
13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the
Lit greater
greatest of these is ae love.
