Corinthians Chapter 13
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angelsand havenot charityI am become as sounding brassor a tinklingcymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecyand understand allmysteriesand all knowledgeand though I have all faithsothat I could remove mountainsand have not charityI amnothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poorand thoughI give my body to be burnedand have not charityitprofiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth longand is kindcharity envieth notcharity vaunteth not itselfis not puffed up
5 Doth not behave itself unseemlyseeketh not her ownis noteasily provokedthinketh no evil
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquitybut rejoiceth in the truth
7 Beareth all thingsbelieveth all thingshopeth all thingsendureth all things.
8 Charity never failethbut whether there be propheciestheyshall failwhether there be tonguesthey shall cease whether there be knowledgeit shall vanish away.
9 For we know in partand we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is comethen that which is inpart shall be done away.
11 When I was a childI spake as a childI understood as achildI thought as a childbut when I became a manI putaway childish things.
12 For now we see through a glassdarklybut then face to facenow I know in partbut then shall I know even as also I amknown.
13 And now abideth faithhopecharitythese threebut thegreatest of these is charity.
