1 Corinthians 13:1 (AENT) If I could speak in every tongue of men, and in that of Messengers, and there should be no love in me, I should be like brass that resounds, or the cymbal that makes a noise. 2 And if there should be in me (the gift of) prophecy, and I should understand all the mysteries, and every science; and if there should be in me all faith, so that I could move mountains, and love should not be in me, I should be nothing. 3 And if I should feed out to the poverty stricken all I possess; and if I should give my body so that I may boast; and there should be no love in me, I gain nothing. Love is patient, and is kind; love is not envious; love does not shout loudly; and is not boastful; 5 And does nothing that causes shame; and seeks not her own; is not passionate; and thinks no evil; 6 (It) does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 (It) bears all things, believes all things, hopes for all, and endures all. 8 Love will never cease. But prophesying will end; and tongues will be stopped; and knowledge will disappear.

1 John 4:16 (AENT) And we have believed and known the love which Elohim has towards us: for Elohim is love, and whoever abides in love, abides in Elohim. 17 And hereby is his love perfected with us; that we may have open countenances in the day of judgment; because as he was, so also are we in this world. 18 In love there is no fear; but perfect love casts out fear; because fear exists in peril, and he that fears is not perfected in love. 19 Let us, therefore, love Elohim; because he has first loved us. 20 And if any one will say, I love Elohim, and yet hates his brother, he is a liar: for he that loves not his brother who is visible, how can he love Elohim who is invisible? 21 And this command we have received from him, that whoever loves Elohim, must love also his brother.
