1 Corinthians 13 NIV

1 cor 13 niv

And there Charles Haddon Spurgeon— Spurgeon's Sermons Volume 17: 1871 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. As the word charity seems now to express little else than almsgiving, which, performed even to the uttermost of a man's power, is nothing if he lack what the apostle terms αγαπη, and which we here translate charity; it is best to omit the use of a word in this place which, taken in its ordinary signification, makes the apostle contradict himself; see : Though I give all my goods to feed the poor, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. It is benyngne or of good wille. Dee's actions with spirits to get a complete vocabulary of this language. Nowe forsothe dwellen feith hoope charite. The one who prophesies is greater than the one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the church may be edified.

1 Corinthians 13:1 (NIV)

1 cor 13 niv

They were so distracted with contentions, divided by parties, and envious of each other's gifts, that unity was nearly destroyed. There is much of this kind to be found in their cabalistical books, and in the books of many called Christians. Thus charity properly expresses that affectionate attachment we may feel to a person whose wants we have been enabled to relieve; but originally it signified that want of the necessaries of life which produced dearth or dearness of those necessaries; and brought the poor man into that state in which he stood so much in need of the active benevolence of his richer neighbor. Whether prophecies schuln be bolde eyther langagis schuln ceese: eyther science schul be distruyed. Having, by his advices and directions, corrected many abuses, and having shown them how in outward things they should walk so as to please God, he now shows them the spirit, temper, and disposition in which this should be done, and without which all the rest must be ineffectual.

1 Timothy 4:1

1 cor 13 niv

Some think that the apostle means only the most splendid eloquence; as we sometimes apply the word angelic to signify any thing sublime, grand, beautiful, etc. Gyf I speke with tungis of men and aungels sotheli I have not charitee: I am maad as brasse sounynge, or a symbale tynking. Not merely in opposition and persecution, but alone in it, and here, again, Jesus, who was the personification of Divine lore, stands out as our great example. If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. Our spiritual manhood in heaven will discard many things which we now count precious, as a full grown man discards the treasures of his childhood.

1 Cor. 13 NKJV

1 cor 13 niv

We discern the run of the Apostle's thought best by thus omitting the intervening verses and connecting these two. For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. And gif I schal deperte al my goodid into metis of pore men. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

1 Corinthians 13 NIV

1 cor 13 niv

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Forsothe whenne that schal cum to that is perfit: that thing that is of partye schal be avoydid. Our English word love we have from the Teutonic leben to live, because love is the means, dispenser, and preserver of life; and without it life would have nothing desirable, nor indeed any thing even supportable: or it may be taken immediately from the Anglo-Saxon lofa and lufa love, from lufan and lufian, to desire, to love, to favor. If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. See what has been published of his work by Dr. Even the disciples whom He had drawn nearest to Him, and to whom He had tried Catherine Booth— Godliness Thousands of years ago, in the most beautiful Garden the world has ever known, lived a man and a woman.

1 Corinthians 13 Animated

1 cor 13 niv

He was emphatically alone, and of the people there was none with Him. Wiclif, translating from the Vulgate, has the word charity; and him our authorized version follows. The possession of this Divine Charity often necessitates walking in a lonely path. The word αγαπη, love, I have already considered at large in the note on ; and to that place I beg leave to refer the reader for its derivation and import. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

1 Timothy 4:1

1 cor 13 niv

Whenne I was a litil chiilde: I spake as a litil chiilde. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Or, probably, the apostle refers to a notion that was common among the Jews, that there was a language by which angels might be invoked, adjured, collected, and dispersed; and by the means of which many secrets might be found out, and curious arts and sciences known. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. This was a full proof that love to God and man was wanting; and that without this, their numerous gifts and other graces were nothing in the eyes of God; for it was evident that they did not love one another, which is a proof that they did not love God; and consequently, that they had not true religion. And gif I schal bitake my body so that I brenne forsothe gif I schal not have charite it profitith to me no thing.
