13 Though I speak with athe tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or ba tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of cprophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all dknowledge; and though I have all efaith, fso that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3 And gthough 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. 4 Charity hisuffereth long, and iis kind; charity kenvieth not; charity ||vaunteth not itself, is not lpuffed up, 5 Doth not mbehave itself unseemly, nseeketh not her own, ois not easily provoked, pthinketh no evil; 6 qRejoiceth not in riniquity, but rejoiceth ||in the rstruth; 7 tBeareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, hendureth all things. 8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be uvprophecies, they shall wfail; whether there be qvtongues, they shall cease; whether there be dknowledge, it shall wvanish away. 9 For xwe know yin part, and we uprophesy in part. 10 But zwhen that which is perfect is come, then that which is yin part shall be wdone away. 11 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 wput away childish things. 12 For anow we see through a bglass, †darkly; but then cface to face: now I know yin part; but then dshall I know even as also eI am known. 13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
