1 Corinthians 13:1-7 says:
I may speak in different languages of men or even angels. But if I don't have love, then I am only a noisy bell or a ringing cymbal. 2I may have the gift of prophecy; I may understand all the secret things [of God] and know everything; and I may have faith so great that I can move mountains. But even with all these things, if I don't have love, then I am nothing. 3I may give everything I have to feed people. And I may even give my body [as an offering] to be burned. But I gain nothing by doing these things if I don't have love. 4Love is patient, and love is kind. Love is not jealous, it does not boast, and it is not proud. 5Love is not rude, love is not selfish, and love does not become angry easily. Love does not remember wrongs done against it. 6Love is not happy with evil, but love is happy with the truth. 7Love patiently accepts all things. Love always trusts, always hopes, and always continues strong. (Easy-to-Read Version)
King James Version: 1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2And 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. 3And 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. 4Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
