Concerning Love

13:1 Though I speak with the leshonot (tongues) of men and of malachim, and have not love, I am become [as] sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

13:2 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 Love, I am nothing.

13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed [the poor], and though I give my body to be burned, and have not Love, it profits me nothing.

13:4 Love suffers long, [and] is kind; Love envies not; Love vaunts not itself, is not puffed up,

13:5 Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;

13:6 Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;

13:7 Bears all things, believes all things,hopes all things, endures all things.

13:8 Love never fails: but whether [there be] prophecies, they shall fail; whether [there be] leshonot (tongues), they shall cease; whether [there be] knowledge, it shall vanish away.

13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

13:10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

13:12 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.

13:13 And now abides Emunah, Tikvah, Ahavah (love)  these three; but the greatest of these [is] Ahavah (love).
