Listen closely now my beloved; ‘though you may speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, you are become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal.
And though you have prophecies, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge; and though you have all faith, so as to move mountains, and do not have love, you are nothing.
And though you give out all your goods to feed the poor, and though you deliver your body to be burned, and have not love, you are profited nothing.
Love has patience, is kind; love is not envious, is not vain, is not puffed up;
It does not behave indecently, does not seek her own it is not easily provoked, and thinks no evil.
Love does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth, it quietly covers all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.
Love never fails. But if there are prophecies, they will be abolished; if tongues, they shall cease; if knowledge, it will be abolished.
For we know in part, and we prophesy in part But when the perfect thing comes, then that which is in part will be caused to cease.
When you were an infant, you spoke as an infant; you thought as an infant, you reasoned as an infant. But now that you’re a man, do away with the things of an infant.
For now you see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now you know in part, but then you shall fully know even as you also are fully known.
And now, faith, hope, love, these three remain; but the greatest of these is love’ (1 Corinthians 13:
