1 Corinthians 13
Notes
13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.  
13:2 And 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.  
13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profits me nothing.  
13:4 Charity suffers long, and is kind; charity envies not; charity braggs not itself, is not puffed up,  
13:5 Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;  
13:6 Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;  
13:7 Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  
13:8 Charity never fails: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.  
13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.  
13:10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.  
13:11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.  
13:12 For 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.  
13:13 And now stays faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
