The Excellence of Love

1 If I speak with the tongues R497 of men and of angels, R498 but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging R499 cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy, R500 and know all mysteries R501 and all knowledge; R502 and if I have all R503 faith, so as to remove R504 mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 And if I give R505 all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender R506 my body to F144 be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.

4 Love is R507 patient, love is kind and is R508 not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, R509 5 does not act unbecomingly; it does R510 not seek its own, is not provoked, does R511 not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 does R512 not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices R513 with the truth; 7 bears R514 F145 all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, R515 F146 they will be done away; if there are tongues, R516 they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know R517 in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became F147 a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we see R518 in a mirror dimly, F148 but then face R519 to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have R520 been fully known. 13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest F149 of these is love. R521
