1 Corinthians 13
The Excellence of Love1 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. 2 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. 3 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 boastto be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love l is patient, love is kind and m is not jealous; love does not brag and is not n arrogant, 5 does not act unbecomingly; it o does not seek its own, is not provoked p does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 q does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but r rejoices with the truth; 7 ▼
▼ Or covers, t bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 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. 9 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 withbecame a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we z see in a mirror ▼
▼ Lit in a riddledimly, 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 greatergreatest of these is ae love.
