4* Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated,
5it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury,
6it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.
7It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8* Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing.
9For we know partially and we prophesy partially,
10but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.
11When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things.
12At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully knowing
13* So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-13
