Love is patient,1 love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.25
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,3 it is not easily angered,4 it keeps no record of wrongs.56
Love does not delight in evil6 but rejoices with the truth.77
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.88
