Love is-1 Corinthians 13 WYC

More than two centuries before the King James Version came into existence, Oxford professor and theologian John Wycliffe undertook the first-ever English translation of Scripture.

"faith, hope, love" each word written on a card, strung on a line with clothes pins
 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, Wycliffe Bible

Charity is patient, it is benign; charity envieth not, it doeth not wickedly, it is not blown [it is not in-blown with pride],

it is not covetous [of worships], it seeketh not those things that be his own [it seeketh not those things that be her own], it is not stirred to wrath, it thinketh not evil,

 it joyeth not on wickedness, but it joyeth together to truth; [it joyeth not in wickedness, forsooth it joyeth together with truth;]

 it suffereth all things, it believeth all things, it hopeth all things, it sustaineth all things.

The Wycliffe Bible

“More than two centuries before the King James Version came into existence, Oxford professor and theologian John Wycliffe undertook the first-ever English translation of Scripture. The hand-printed “Early Version” of the Wycliffe Bible, which first appeared in 1382, offered a literal translation of the Latin Vulgate. It was the first time the common people had access to Scripture in their language in more than 1,300 years.

By 1395, Wycliffe’s friend John Purvey had amended the often-unwieldy translation into a “Later Version,” which was easier to read but kept much of the poetry of the Early Version. This version, known today as the Wycliffe Bible, was widely distributed throughout England – all more than half a century before Gutenberg invented his printing press.” from BibleStudyTools.com
