• Love is patient and kind.

  • Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.

  • It does not demand its own way.
    It is not irritable,

  • and it keeps no record of being wronged.

  • It does not rejoice about injustice

  • but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.

  • Love never gives up,
    never loses faith,

  • is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

  • Three things will last forever

  • —faith, hope, and love—

  • and the greatest of these is love.

  • 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, 13, New Living Translation,
