New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part,
10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. 10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 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 ways behind me.
12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. 12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
