1 Corinthians 13:3-13 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
3 If I give all I possess to the poor1 and surrender my body to the flames,a2 but have not love, I gain nothing. 4 Love is patient,3 love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.4 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,5 it is not easily angered,6 it keeps no record of wrongs.7 6 Love does not delight in evil8 but rejoices with the truth.9 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.10 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies,11 they will cease; where there are tongues,12 they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part13 and we prophesy in part, 10 but when perfection comes,14 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 ways15 behind me. 12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror;16 then we shall see face to face.17 Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.18 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.19 But the greatest of these is love.20
