1 y 8, 1; 16, 14; Rom 12, 9–10; 13, 8–10 . *If I speak in human and angelic tongues, but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. 2 z 4, 1; 14, 2 / 1, 5; 8, 1–3; 12, 8 / Mt 17, 20; 21, 21; Col 2, 3 . And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 a Mt 6, 2 . If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing.

4 b Eph 4, 2 / 4, 6.18; 5, 2; 8, 1 . *Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated, 5 c 10, 24.33; Phil 2, 4.21; 1 Thes 5, 15 . it 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. 7 d Prv 10, 12; 1 Pt 4, 8 . It 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. 12 e 2 Cor 5, 7; Heb 11, 1 / 2 Tm 2, 19; 1 Jn 3, 2 . At 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 known. 13 f Col 1, 4; 1 Thes 1, 3; 5, 8 . * So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
