1 Corinthians 13:4-13
English Standard Version
4 (A)Love is patient and (B)kind; love (C)does not envy or boast; it (D)is not arrogant 5 or rude. It (E)does not insist on its own way; it (F)is not irritable or resentful;[a] 6 it (G)does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but (H)rejoices with the truth. 7 (I)Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, (J)endures all things.
8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For (K)we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but (L)when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 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. 12 For (M)now we see in a mirror dimly, but (N)then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as (O)I have been fully known.
13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.Read full chapter
