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.

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.

Charity suffereth long,
and is kind;
charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself,

is not puffed up....

And now abideth faith, hope, charity,
these three;
but the greatest of these is charity.
1 Corinthians 13:2-4,13
