Charity (Love)

1 Though I speak with the
tongues of men and of
angels, but have not charity, I
am become
as sounding brass,
or a tinkling cymbal.

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.

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.

4 Charity suffereth long, and
is kind; charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself, is
not puffed up.

5 Doth not behave itself un-
seemly, seeketh not her own,
is not easily provoked, thinketh
no evil;

6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity,
but rejoices in the truth;

7 Beareth all things, believeth
all things, hopeth all things,
endureth all things.

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.

9 For we know in part and
we prophesy in part,

10 But when that which is
perfect is come, then that which
is in part shall be done
away.

11 When I was a child, I spake
as a child, I understood as a
child, I thought as a child: but
I became a man, I put
away childish things.

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 And now abideth faith,
hope, charity, these three; but
the greatest of these
is charity.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13, King James Bible
