13:1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

13:2 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.

13:3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

13:4 Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful;

13:5 it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;

13:6 it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.

13:7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

13:8 Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

13:9 For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect;

13:10 but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away.

13:11 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.

13:12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood.

13:13 So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
