1 Corinthians 13:8-13:13

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.

        9 For we know in part,
        and we prophesy in part.
        10 But when that which is perfect is come,
        then that which is in part shall be done away.

                 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.

        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.

13 And now abideth
faith, hope, charity,
these three;
but the greatest of these is charity.
