The Excellence of Love
1 If I speak with the atongues of men and of bangels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a cclanging cymbal.
2 If I have the gift of aprophecy, and know all bmysteries and all cknowledge; and if I have dall faith, so as to eremove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
3 And if I agive all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I bsurrender my body 1to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love ais patient, love is kind and bis not jealous; love does not brag and is not carrogant,
5 does not act unbecomingly; it adoes not seek its own, is not provoked, bdoes not take into account a wrong suffered,
6 adoes not rejoice in unrighteousness, but brejoices with the truth;
7 1abears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
