For I think that God has shown us the apostles last, as devoted to death, for we have been made a spectacle to the world, both to angels and men. For we are foolish for Christ's sake, but you are wise in Christ; we are weak, but you are strong; and you are glorious, but we are infamous. Even to this hour we suffer hunger and thirst and nakedness, and are beaten, and are unsettled, read more.

If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels and have not love, I am a sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal. And if I have prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. And if I deal out all my property to feed the poor, and if I deliver my body to be burned, and have not love, I shall not be profited. read more.
Love suffers long and is kind; love envies not; love is not boastful, is not puffed up, does not behave unbecomingly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, devises not evil, rejoices not in wickedness, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes for all things, and endures all things. Love never fails; but if there are prophecies, they shall pass away; if tongues, they shall cease; if knowledge, it shall pass away.

For you know this, that no fornicator, or impure, or covetous person, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words; for on account of these comes the wrath of God on the children of disobedience. Be not therefore partakers with them.

But concerning the times and season, brothers, you have no need that I should write to you; for you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord comes like a thief in the night.
