1 Corinthians 13
1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of messengers, but do not have love, I have become as sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophecy, and know all secrets and all knowledge, and if I have all belief, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am none at all.
how excellent soever, are nothing worth without charity
3 And if I give out all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but do not have love, I am not profited at all.
The praises thereof
4 Love is patient, is kind, love does not envy, love does not boast, is not puffed up, 5 does not behave indecently, does not seek its own, is not provoked, reckons not the evil, 6 does not rejoice over the unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth, 7 it covers all, believes all, expects all, endures all.
8 Love never fails. And whether there be prophecies, they shall be inactive; or tongues, they shall cease; or knowledge, it shall be inactive. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part shall be inactive. 11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child, I reasoned as a child. But when I became a man, I did away with childish matters. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know, as I also have been known.
and prelation before hope and faith
13 And now belief, expectation, and love remain – these three. But the greatest of these is love.
