3. The Excelling of Love
8 aLove 1never falls away. But whether bprophecies, they will be rendered useless; or ctongues, they will cease; or dknowledge, it will be rendered useless.
9 For we aknow in part, and we prophesy in part;
10 But 1when that which is 2complete comes, 3that which is in part will be rendered useless.
11 1When I was a 2achild, I spoke as a child, I thought as a bchild, I 3reasoned as a child; 4since I have become a man, I have done away with childish things.
12 For 1now we see 2in a amirror 3obscurely, but at 4that time bface to face; 1now I cknow in part, but at 4that time I will fully dknow even as also I was fully known.
13 Now there abide 1afaith, bhope, clove, these three; and the greatest of these is dlove.
