If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don't have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.                If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don't have love, I am nothing.                If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don't have love, it profits me nothing.                Love is patient and is kind; love doesn't envy. Love doesn't brag, is not proud,                doesn't behave itself inappropriately, doesn't seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; 13:6 doesn't rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;                bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.                Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with.

{1:1} The elder to Gaius the beloved, whom I love in truth.

{1:2} Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be healthy, even as your soul prospers. {1:3} For I rejoiced greatly, when brothers came and testified about your truth, even as you walk in truth. {1:4} I have no greater joy than this, to hear about my children walking in truth.

{1:5} Beloved, you do a faithful work in whatever you accomplish for those who are brothers and strangers. {1:6} They have testified about your love before the assembly. You will do well to send them forward on their journey in a way worthy of God, {1:7} because for the sake of the Name they went out, taking nothing from the Gentiles. {1:8} We therefore ought to receive such, that we may be fellow workers for the truth.

{1:9} I wrote to the assembly, but Diotrephes, who loves to be first among them, doesn't accept what we say. {1:10} Therefore if I come, I will call attention to his deeds which he does, unjustly accusing us with wicked words. Not content with this, neither does he himself receive the brothers, and those who would, he forbids and throws out of the assembly. {1:11} Beloved, don't imitate that which is evil, but that which is good. He who does good is of God. He who does evil hasn't seen God. {1:12} Demetrius has the testimony of all, and of the truth itself; yes, we also testify, and you know that our testimony is true.

{1:13} I had many things to write to you, but I am unwilling to write to you with ink and pen; {1:14} but I hope to see you soon, and we will speak face to face. Peace be to you. The friends greet you. Greet the friends by name.
