An excerpt from Paul's first letter to the Corinthians:

     1: If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
     2: And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
     3: If I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
     4: Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful;
     5: it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
     6: it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.
     7: Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
     8: Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
     9: For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect;
     10: but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away.
     11: When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I gave up childish ways.
     12: For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood.
     13: So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians, chapter 13

An excerpt from Paul's first letter to John:

     7: Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God.
     8: He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.
     9: In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.
     10: In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins.
     11: Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
     12: No man has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
     13: By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his own Spirit.
