Korintim Alef 13 – איגרת שאול הראשונה אל הקורינתים יג


1Though I speak with every language among men and among Malakhim, and have not love in my heart, I am become as a sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.  2And though there is within  me  nevu’ah, and  I  know every  sod,  and all  the  knowledge; and though I have complete, absolute trust, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love in my heart, I am nothing.  3And, though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not love in my heart, I gain nothing.

4Love is long-suffering and kind; love does not envy; love does not make a vain display of itself, and does not boast, 5does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not its own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil; 6rejoices not over iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8Love will not fail, forever; but where there are prophecies, they shall fail; where there are tongues, they shall cease; where there is knowledge, it shall vanish away.  9For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.  10But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is imperfect shall come to an end.  11When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.  12For now we see through a mirror, dimly; but then, face to face.  Now I know in part, but then shall I know, even as I am also known.  13And now abide Emunah, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
