Love is- Weekend Words from 1 Corinthians WYC

 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.

“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

Love is- Weekend Words from 1 Corinthians NVI

Weekend Words about love-in Espanol

 1 Corinthians 13:4-7,

Nueva Versión Internacional (NVI)

El amor es paciente, es bondadoso. El amor no es envidioso ni jactancioso ni orgulloso.

No se comporta con rudeza, no es egoísta, no se enoja fácilmente, no guarda rencor.

El amor no se deleita en la maldad, sino que se regocija con la verdad.

Todo lo disculpa, todo lo cree, todo lo espera, todo lo soporta.

 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, The Message 

“Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.”
