1 Corinthians 13 (PKJV)

From Textus Receptus

Jump to: navigation, search
  • 1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become as 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 do not have love, I am nothing.
  • 3 And though I give 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 easily 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 if there are prophecies, they will fail; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
  • 9 Because, we know in part and we prophesy in part.
  • 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
  • 11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
  • 12 Because, now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know just as I also am known.
  • 13 So now faith, hope, and love, abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
