ThoughG1437 I speakG2980 with the tonguesG1100 of menG444 and of angels,G32 and haveG2192 not charity,G26 I am becomeG1096 as soundingG2278 brass,G5475 orG2228 a tinklingG214 cymbal.G2950
And thoughG1437 I haveG2192 the gift of prophecy,G4394 and understandG1492 allG3956 mysteries,G3466 and allG3956 knowledge;G1108 and thoughG1437 I haveG2192 allG3956 faith,G4102 soG5620 that I could removeG3179 mountains,G3735 and haveG2192 not charity,G26 I amG1510 nothing.G3762
And thoughG1437 I bestowG5595 allG3956 my goodsG5224 to feedG5595 the poor,G4434 and thoughG1437 I giveG3860 my bodyG4983 to be burned,G2545 and haveG2192 not charity,G26 it profitsG5623 me nothing.G3762
CharityG26 suffersG3114 long,G3114 and is kind;G5541 charityG26 enviesG2206 not; charityG26 braggsG4068 not itself, is not puffedG5448 up,
Does not behaveG807 itself unseemly, seeksG2212 not her own,G1438 is not easily provoked,G3947 thinksG3049 noG3756 evil;G2556
RejoicesG5463 not in iniquity,G93 but rejoicesG4796 in the truth;G225
BearsG4722 allG3956 things, believesG4100 allG3956 things, hopesG1679 allG3956 things, enduresG5278 allG3956 things.
CharityG26 neverG3763 fails:G1601 but whetherG1535 there be prophecies,G4394 they shall fail;G2673 whetherG1535 there be tongues,G1100 they shall cease;G3973 whetherG1535 there be knowledge,G1108 it shall vanishG2673 away.G2673
For we knowG1097 in part,G3313 and we prophesyG4395 in part.G3313
But whenG3752 that which is perfectG5046 is come,G2064 thenG5119 that which is in partG3313 shall be doneG2673 away.G2673
WhenG3753 I was a child,G3516 I spokeG2980 as a child,G3516 I understoodG5426 as a child,G3516 I thoughtG3049 as a child:G3516 but whenG3753 I becameG1096 a man,G435 I putG2673 awayG2673 childishG3516 things.
For nowG737 we seeG991 throughG1223 a glass,G2072 darkly;G1722 G135 but thenG5119 faceG4383 to face:G4383 nowG737 I knowG1097 in part;G3313 but thenG5119 shall I knowG1921 evenG2531 as alsoG2532 I am known.G1921
And nowG3570 staysG3306 faith,G4102 hope,G1680 charity,G26 theseG5023 three;G5140 but the greatestG3187 of theseG5130 is charity.G26
