1 If with the tongues of :men I speak, and of :angels, but have not love, I am become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if prophecy I have, and all the mysteries I know and all knowledge; and if all faith I have, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And if I dole out all my :goods, and if I give my :body that I may glory, but have not love, it profiteth me nothing. 4 :Love suffereth long, is kind; :love envieth not, vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 is not unseemly, seeketh not its :own, is not provoked, taketh not account of :evil; 6 rejoiceth not in :unrighteousness, but rejoiceth with the truth; 7 covereth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 8 :Love never †faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall be done away; whether tongues, they shall cease; whether knowledge, it shall be done away. 9 For we know in part, and prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect is come, what is in part shall be done away. 11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, thought as a child, reasoned as a child: when I became a man, I put away the things of the child. 12 For now we see by a mirror †darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know fully even as also I was fully known. 13 But now abideth faith, hope, love, these :three; and the greater of these is love.
