13:1 If I speak with tongues of men and of angels, and I have not charity, I am made as brass sounding, or a cymbal tinkling. Though I speak with the tongues of men and angels, and yet had no love, I were even as sounding brass: and as a tinkling Cymbal. Though I speak with the tongues of men and Angels, and have not love, I am as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. Though I speak with the tongues of men & of Angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal.
13:2 And if I have prophecy, and all knowing, and if I have all faith, so that I bear over hills from one place to another, and I have not charity, I am nought. and though I could prophesy, and understood all secrets, and all knowledge: yea, if I had all faith so that I could move mountains out of their places, and yet had no love, I were nothing. And though I had the gift of prophecy, and knew all secrets and all knowledge, yea, if I had all faith, so that I could remove mountains and had not love, I were nothing. 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 no charity, I am nothing.
13:3 And if I part all my goods into the meats of poor men, and if I betake my body, so that I burn, and if I have not charity, it profiteth to me nothing. And though I bestowed all my goods to feed the poor, and though I gave my body even that I burned, and yet have no love, it profiteth me nothing. And though I feed the poor with all my goods, and though I give my body, that I be burned, and have not love, it profiteth me nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
13:4 Charity is patient, it is benign; charity envieth not, it doeth not wickedly, it is not in-blown with pride, Love suffereth long, and is courteous. love envieth not. Love doeth not frowardly, swelleth not, Love suffereth long: it is bountiful: love envieth not: love doth not boast itself: it is not puffed up: Charity suffereth long, and is kind: charity envieth not: charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
13:5 it is not covetous of worships, it seeketh not those things that be her own, it is not stirred to wrath, it thinketh not evil, dealeth not dishonestly, seeketh not her own, is not provoked to anger, thinketh not evil It distaineth not: it seeketh not her own things: it is not provoked to anger: it thinketh not evil: Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil,
13:6 it joyeth not in wickedness, forsooth it joyeth together with truth; rejoiceth not in iniquity: but rejoiceth in the truth, It rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth: Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth:
13:7 it suffereth all things, it believeth all things, it hopeth all things, it sustaineth all things. suffereth all things, believeth all things hopeth all things, endureth in all things. It suffereth all things: it believeth all things: it hopeth all things: it endureth all things. Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
13:8 Charity falleth never down, whether prophecies shall be voided, or languages shall cease, or science shall be destroyed. Though that prophesying fail, or tongues shall cease, or knowledge vanish away: yet love falleth never away. Love doth never fall away, though that prophesyings be abolished, or the tongues cease, or knowledge vanish away. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
13:9 For of part we know, and of part we prophesy; For our knowledge is unperfect, and our prophesying is unperfect: For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
13:10 but when that shall come that is perfect, that thing that is of part shall be voided. but when that which is perfect is come: then that which is unperfect shall be done away. But when that which is perfect, is come, then that which is in part, shall be abolished. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part, shall be done away.
13:11 When I was a little child, I spake as a little child, I understood as a little child, I thought as a little child; but when I was made a man, I voided those things that were of a little child. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I imagined as a child: but as soon as I was a man I put away all childishness. 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. 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 Forsooth we see now by a mirror in darkness, but then face to face; now I know of part, but then I shall know, as and I am known. Now we see in a glass even in a dark speaking: but then shall we see face to face. Now I know unperfectly: but then shall I know even as I am known. For now we see through a glass darkly: but then shall we see face to face. Now I know in part: but then shall I know even as I am known. 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 dwelleth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the most of these is charity. Now abideth faith, hope, and love, even these three: but the chief of these is love. And now abideth faith, hope & love, even these three: but the chiefest of these is love. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three, but the greatest of these is charity.
