(A)Love is patient and (B)kind; love (C)does not envy or boast; it (D)is not arrogant or rude. It (E)does not insist on its own way; it (F)is not irritable or resentful;[a] it (G)does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but (H)rejoices with the truth. (I)Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, (J)endures all things.

Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For (K)we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but (L)when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For (M)now we see in a mirror dimly, but (N)then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as (O)I have been fully known.

13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
