1 Corinthians 13
See the whole Chapter
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and
have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling
2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand
all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that
I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give
my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5Doth not behave
itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh
6Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things,
endureth all things.
8Charity never faileth: but whether there
be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall
cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10But when that which
is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a
child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away
12For now we see through a glass, darkly; but
then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as
also I am known.
13And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these
three; but the greatest of these is charity.
