1 Cor. 13:4a-8a

It does not envy


does not brag
does not puff up
does not act shamefully
does not seek self
does not get irritated
does not find fault

    does not delight at injustice
    but rejoices along with truth

all things sustains
all things trusts
all things hopes
all things supports


never fails.

οὐ ζηλοῖ

ἡ ἀγάπη

οὐ περπερεύεται
οὐ φυσιοῦται
οὐκ ἀσχημονεῖ
οὐ ζητεῖ τὰ ἑαυτῆς
οὐ παροξύνεται
οὐ λογίζεται τὸ κακόν

οὐ χαίρει ἐπὶ τῇ ἀδικίᾳ
συγχαίρει δὲ τῇ ἀληθείᾳ

πάντα στέγει
πάντα πιστεύει
πάντα ἐλπίζει
πάντα ὑπομένει

ἡ ἀγάπη οὐδέποτε πίπτει

I am indebted to the following translations for significant input; the Good News Bible, the CEV, the TNIV and the Rotherham Bible.
