First Corinthians Chapter – 13 – Catholic Public Domain Version

First Corinthians Chapters (English Bible : Catholic Public Domain Version – CPDV)

1 If I were to speak in the language of men, or of Angels, yet not have charity, I would be like a clanging bell or a crashing cymbal.

2 And if I have prophecy, and learn every mystery, and obtain all knowledge, and possess all faith, so that I could move mountains, yet not have charity, then I am nothing.

3 And if I distribute all my goods in order to feed the poor, and if I hand over my body to be burned, yet not have charity, it offers me nothing.

4 Charity is patient, is kind. Charity does not envy, does not act wrongly, is not inflated.

5 Charity is not ambitious, does not seek for itself, is not provoked to anger, devises no evil.

6 Charity does not rejoice over iniquity, but rejoices in truth.

7 Charity suffers all, believes all, hopes all, endures all.

8 Charity is never torn away, even if prophecies pass away, or languages cease, or knowledge is destroyed.

9 For we know only in part, and we prophesy only in part.

10 But when the perfect arrives, the imperfect passes away.

11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I understood like a child, I thought like a child. But when I became a man, I put aside the things of a child.

12 Now we see through a glass darkly. But then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know, even as I am known.

13 But for now, these three continue: faith, hope, and charity. And the greatest of these is charity.
