1 Cor 13-14 – Love is the highest spiritual gift / The gift of life and speaking with tongues

In stock



Love is patient and is kind. Love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud, doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, and the disciple’s sayings they will be done away with and knowledge too.
For our knowledge and prophecy is patchwork.
For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, even as I was also fully known
If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don’t have love, I am nothing.
But now faith, hope, and love remain—these three. The greatest of these is love.
Strive after love!
For he who speaks in another language speaks not for men, but for God! For no one understands; but in the Spirit he speaks mysteries.
He who speaks in tongues edifies himself, he who prophesies edifies the assembly.
Even things without life, giving a voice, whether pipe or harp, if they didn’t give a distinction in the sounds, how would it be known what is piped or harped?
So also you, unless you uttered by the tongue words easy to understand, how would it be known what is spoken? For you would be speaking into the air.
Let the prophets speak, two or three, and let the others discern.
But if a revelation is made to another sitting by, let the first keep silent.
For God is not a God of confusion, but of peace.
As in all the holy assemblies let the wives be quiet, they should as the law says, be in submission. If they desire to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home.
