1 Corinthians 13

13 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Psalm 136

1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.                                   2 Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever.                                               3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever.                                             4 to him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever.                                       5 who by his understanding made the heavens, His love endures forever.                           6 who spread out the earth upon the waters, His love endures forever.                               7 who made the great lights—His love endures forever.                                                       8 the sun to govern the day, His love endures forever.                                                         9 the moon and stars to govern the night; His love endures forever.                                     10 to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt His love endures forever.                     11 and brought Israel out from among them His love endures forever.                                 12 with a mighty hand and outstretched arm; His love endures forever.                             13 to him who divided the Red Sea[a] asunder His love endures forever.                             14 and brought Israel through the midst of it, His love endures forever.                             15 but swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea; His love endures forever.                 16 to him who led his people through the wilderness; His love endures forever.                 17 to him who struck down great kings, His love endures forever.                                       18 and killed mighty kings— His love endures forever.                                                       19 Sihon king of the Amorites His love endures forever.                                                     20 and Og king of Bashan— His love endures forever.                                                         21 and gave their land as an inheritance, His love endures forever.                                       22 an inheritance to his servant Israel. His love endures forever.                                         23 He remembered us in our low estate His love endures forever.                                       24 and freed us from our enemies. His love endures forever.                                               25 He gives food to every creature. His love endures forever.                                             26 Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.
