Love is – 1 Corinthians 13 ESV

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

"And now these three remain:faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, English Standard Version

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude.

It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;

it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

The English Standard Version Bible translation 

“The English Standard Version (ESV) stands in the classic mainstream of English Bible translations over the past half-millennium. The ESV is an “essentially literal” translation that seeks as far as possible to capture the precise wording of the original text and the personal style of each Bible writer. It seeks to be transparent to the original text, letting the reader see as directly as possible the structure and meaning of the original. ” from BibleStudyTools
