If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
And if I have 1prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, 2so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
33If I give away all I have, and 4if I deliver up my body to be burned,a but have not love, I gain nothing.
45Love is patient and 6kind; love 7does not envy or boast; it 8is not arrogant
or rude. It 9does not insist on its own way; it 10is not irritable or resentful;b6
it 11does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but 12rejoices with the truth.
