      2 If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I knew all the mysteries of the future and knew everything about everything, but didn't love others, what good would I be? And if I had the gift of faith so that I could speak to a mountain and make it move, without love I would be no good to anybody.
      3 If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; b but if I didn't love others, I would be of no value whatsoever.

          4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud
          5 or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged.
          6 It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
