1 Corinthians 13
1 If I speak with the languages of men, and even of messengers, but do not have love*, I have become like noisy brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have the gift of prophecy and if I know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so-then to remove mountains, but if I do not have love*, I am nothing. 3 And if I handout all my possessed things and if I give my body in order that I would be burned, but if I do not have love*, it profits me nothing. 4 Love* has patience. It is kind. Love* is not jealous. Love* does not brag. It is not arrogant. 5 It does not behave improperly. It does not seek its own. It does not irritate. It does not reason evil. 6 It does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices together with the truth. 7 It is forbearing all things, is believing all things, is hoping for all things, is enduring all things. 8 Love* never* falls short.
But if there are prophesies, they will be done-away; if there are foreign languages, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done-away. 9 But we know partially and we prophesy partially; 10 but whenever the completed thing comes, then what is partial will be done-away. 11 When I was an infant, I was speaking like an infant, I had the mindset like that of an infant, I was reasoning like an infant. But when I became a man, I have done-away-with the things of the infant. 12 For* now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. I know now partially, but then I will fully know just-as I was also fully known. 13 But these three are remaining now: faith, hope, love*, and the greater of these is love*.
