1 Corinthians 13 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
1 If I speak in the tonguesa1 of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy2 and can fathom all mysteries3 and all knowledge,4 and if I have a faith5 that can move mountains,6 but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor7 and surrender my body to the flames,b8 but have not love, I gain nothing. 4 Love is patient,9 love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.10 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,11 it is not easily angered,12 it keeps no record of wrongs.13 6 Love does not delight in evil14 but rejoices with the truth.15 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.16 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies,17 they will cease; where there are tongues,18 they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part19 and we prophesy in part, 10 but when perfection comes,20 the imperfect disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways21 behind me. 12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror;22 then we shall see face to face.23 Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.24 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.25 But the greatest of these is love.26
