Love never fails; but if there are gifts of [a](A)prophecy, they will be done away; if there are (B)tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. For we (C)know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I [b]became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we (D)see in a mirror [c]dimly, but then (E)face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also (F)have been fully known. 13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the [d]greatest of these is (G)love.
