1 Corinthians 13:13 Pictures, Images and Photos

Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails….. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 
1 Corinthians 13:1-8, 13

From bible.cc
suffereth long - Μακροθυμει, “patient”: Has a long mind; to the end of which neither trials, adversities, persecutions, nor provocations, can reach. it suffers all the weakness, ignorance, errors, and infirmities of the children of God; and all the malice and wickedness of the children of this world; and all this, not merely for a time, but long, without end; for it is still a mind or disposition, to the end of which trials, difficulties, etc., can never reach. bears its own infirmities, as well as those of others, with humble submission to the will of God.

is kind - Χρηστευεται· It is tender and compassionate in itself, and kind and obliging to others, even to enemies; it is mild, gentle, and benign; submissive to all the dispensations of God; and creates trouble to no one. liberal, and bountiful, does good to all men, , and especially to the household of faith; not morose, churlish, and ill natured; easy and yielding to the tempers and humours of men; accommodates himself to their infirmities, capacities, manners, and circumstances, in everything he can

Envieth not - οὐ ζηλόι ou zēloi. “jealous”: to be "zealous" for or against any person or thing; that is, to be eager for, or anxious for or against anyone. It is used often in a good sense but it may be used in a bad sense - to be zealous "against" a person; to be jealous of; to envy. Is not grieved because another possesses a greater portion of earthly, intellectual, or spiritual blessings.

Vaunteth (περπερεύεται) From πέρπερος a braggart. Used of one who sounds his own praises. This word is variously translated; acteth not rashly, insolently; is not inconstant, etc. does not desire to be noticed or applauded; but wishes that God may be all in all.

Is not puffed up - Ου φυσιουται· “arrogant”: Is not inflated with a sense of its own importance; for it knows it has nothing but what it has received; and that it deserves nothing that it has got; swelled with pride, and elated with a vain conceit of himself, of his parts and abilities, of his learning, eloquence, wisdom, and knowledge


From What is This Thing Called Love? by Bob Deffinbaugh (bible.org)
“I love one particular scene in the movie Crocodile Dundee. A folk hero from the outback country of Australia, Crocodile Dundee, visits New York City for the first time. While accompanied by a female newspaper writer, he finds himself cornered by a gang of young thugs. When Dundee does not immediately produce his wallet, one young hoodlum pulls out a switchblade and threatens Crocodile Dundee. Nonplused by such aggression, Crocodile simply reaches behind his back with the words, 'That’s not a knife,' suddenly producing the largest knife I have ever seen, 'This is a knife!' Quickly disarmed, the hoodlums run for their lives. As I read the thirteenth chapter of 1 Corinthians, I see Paul somewhat like Crocodile Dundee. His words seem to say, ‘That’s not love … THIS is love!’”
