1 Corinthians 13

ESV 1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. MSG 1 If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don't love, I'm nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. ESV 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. MSG 2 If I speak God's Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, "Jump," and it jumps, but I don't love, I'm nothing. ESV 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. MSG 3 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don't love, I've gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I'm bankrupt without love. ESV 4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant MSG 4 Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn't want what it doesn't have. Love doesn't strut, Doesn't have a swelled head, ESV 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; MSG 5 Doesn't force itself on others, Isn't always "me first," Doesn't fly off the handle, Doesn't keep score of the sins of others, ESV 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. MSG 6 Doesn't revel when others grovel, Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, ESV 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. MSG 7 Puts up with anything, Trusts God always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to the end. ESV 8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. MSG 8 Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. ESV 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, MSG 9 We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. ESV 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. MSG 10 But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled. ESV 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. MSG 11 When I was an infant at my mother's breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good. ESV 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. MSG 12 We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! ESV 13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. MSG 13 But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.
