The Way of Love Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become 1Co 13:1 as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have 1Co 13:2 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. And though I bestow all my goods to feed 1Co 13:3 the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, 1Co 13:4 and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 1Co 13:5 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 1Co 13:6 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 1Co 13:7 Charity never faileth: but whether 1Co 13:8 there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 1Co 13:9 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. 1Co 13:10 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 1Co 13:11 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. 1Co 13:12 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these 1Co 13:13 is charity.
