Unchecked Copy Box1Co 13:1 - If I speak in the tongues[fn] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 13:3 - If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[fn] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 13:4 - Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 13:5 - It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
