King James Bible: I Corinthians, Chapter 13
|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 profiteth me nothing.|
|13:4||Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,|
|13:5||Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;|
|13:6||Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;|
|13:7||Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.|
|13:8||Charity never faileth: 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 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.|
|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 abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.|
