Chapter 13

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
charity 1st Cor 8:1, Eph 5:2, 1st Thess 3:6, 2nd Thess 1:3, 1st Tim 2:15, 1st Tim 4:12, 2nd Tim 2:22, 2nd Tim 3:10, 2nd Pet 1:7, 3rd John 6, Jude 12, Rev 2:19

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 not charity, I am nothing.
prophecy Num 24:4, Matt 7:22, John 11:51
mountains Matt 21:21

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.

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
suffereth 1st Pet 4:8

Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
unseemly Phil 4:8
own Phil 2:4

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
Rejoiceth not Psa 10:3, Rom 1:32
truth 2nd John 4

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
Beareth Gal 6:2

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.
prophecies Jer 23:25, Eze 22:28, Zech 13:2

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

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.

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.
glass 2nd Cor 3:18, 2nd Cor 5:7
know 1st John 3:2

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
greatest Matt 22:38
