Chapter 13

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.

8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of 1aprophecy, they will be done away; if there are btongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we aknow in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I 1became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we asee in a mirror 1dimly, but then bface to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also chave been fully known. 13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the 1greatest of these is alove.

About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
