1 Corinthians 13 - read the Bible online
1st Corinthians
Chapter 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. 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[1] Translatorís note:
vaunteth...: or, is not rash
not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;[2] Translatorís note:
in the truth: or, with 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;[3] Translatorís note:
fail: Gr. vanish away
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.[4] Translatorís note:
done away: Gr. vanish away
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought[5] Translatorís note:
thought: or, reasoned
as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly;[6] Translatorís note:
darkly: Gr. in a riddle
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.
