1.Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging 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, but have not love, I am nothing.

 3. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.

4. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 

5. does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 

6. does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 

7. bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.

  1. First, however, let me tell you about something else that is better than any of them! If I could speak in any language in heaven or on earth* but didn’t love others, I would only be making meaningless noises like a loud gong or a clanging cymbal.
  2. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I knew all the mysteries of the future and knew everything about everything. but didn’t love others, what good would I be. And if I had the gift of faith so that I could speak to a mountain and make it move, without love I would be no good to anybody.
  3. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it;* but if I didn’t love others. I would be of no value whatsoever.
  4. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud.
  5. Or rude. Love does not demands its own way. Love is not irritable and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged.
  6. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
  7. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
  8. Love will last forever, but prophecy and speaking in unknown languages* and special knowledge will all disappear.
