1 Corinthians 13:6-7 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Love joyfully celebrates honesty[a] and finds no delight in what is wrong.[b] Love is a safe place of shelter,[c] for it never stops believing the best for others.[d] Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up.


  1. 1 Corinthians 13:6 Or “reality” (or “truth”).
  2. 1 Corinthians 13:6 Or “injustice” or “unrighteousness.”
  3. 1 Corinthians 13:7 Or “Love bears all things.” Although commonly understood to mean that love can bear hardships of any kind, the nominalized form of the verb (stego) is actually the word for “roof” found in Mark 2:4. Paul is saying that love covers all things, like a roof covers the house. See 1 Peter 4:8. Love does not focus on what is wrong but will bear with the shortcomings of others. And like a roof protects and shields, you could say that love springs no leak. It is a safe place that offers shelter, not exposure.
  4. 1 Corinthians 13:7 Or “it never loses faith.”
