Love is patient and kind,
It is not jealous or conceited or proud,
Love is not ill mannered or selfish or irritable,
Love does not keep a record of wrongs,
Love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth.
Love never gives up and its faith, hope, and patience never fails.
Love is eternal.
There are inspired messages, but they are temporary,
There are gifts of speaking in strange tongues,
But they will cease, there is knowledge, but it will pass.
For our gifts of knowledge and inspired messages are only partial,
But when what is perfect comes, then what is partial will disappear.
