Called the “Love Chapter,” I Corinthians Chapter 13 was written by Paul through the inspiration of the author of love, God, who is Love. Love is at the core of our Christian faith.

Often read at weddings and used for inspirational quotes, the Love Chapter beautifully describes the characteristics, strength, and importance of love. Every time you read the Love Chapter, you cannot help but feel moved by the perfect love that comes from our Father in Heaven.

The Love Chapter

I Corinthians 13:1: “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.”

I Corinthians 13:2: “And 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.”

I Corinthians 13:3: “And 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.”

I Corinthians 13:4: “Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,”

I Corinthians 13:5: “Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;”

I Corinthians 13:6: “Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;”

I Corinthians 13:7: “Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.”

I Corinthians 13:8: “Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.”

I Corinthians 13:9: “For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.”

I Corinthians 13:10: “But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.”

I Corinthians 13:11: “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”

I Corinthians 13:12: “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”

I Corinthians 13:13: “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.”
