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
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

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
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

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
