Love is Patient, Love is Kind

Patience Quotes - Kindness Quotes

Love or Charity? Although the New International Version and other modern versions of the Corinthians Love is Patient Love is Kind Bible Verse are often used to describe the ideal love between a man and a woman, the King James Version of Corinthians reminds us that the kind of Love being described is the universal love of all people - which KJV translates with the word Charity.

Regardless of the original meaning of the Bible Verse, the NIV translation of the Corinthians Love is Patient Love is Kind quote does make a wonderful statement about ideal romantic love as well as a statement about universal love (charity).

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud. It does not dishonor others,
It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
- Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV)

Charity suffereth long, and is kind;
Charity envieth not;
Charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly,
Seeketh not her own,
Is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity,
but rejoiceth in the truth;
Beareth all things,
Believeth all things, hopeth all things,
Endureth all things.
Charity never faileth
.
- Corinthians 13:4-8 (KJV)
