Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love."

Hello JACUSTOMER-35s9e1mk. Thank you for coming to Just Answer and allowing us to help you with your question.
Anna has given you a correct full quotation for the source of the reading that you heard. I have heard different wordings of the quotation you were looking for. The confusion may be based on the fact that different bibles (different translations) have slightly different wording. The version that you heard may have been from the King James Bible, the New English Bible, the Living Bible, the New Geneva Bible, etc. I don't know how many different translations have been published, but I have seen five or six different ones myself. Also, some church texts (such as the Anglican prayer book) also include parts of biblical quotations. Her answer is correct, but to find the exact quote that you heard, you will need to contact the priest and find out what source he used. You may also go to a library or bookstore and look for the citation Anna has provided in different versions of the bible.
If you choose to accept an answer based on this information, please accept Anna's answer and not mine. I just wanted to clarify why the wording she quoted was slightly different than what you remember, but the citation will allow you to look at the same passage in different bibles until you find the wording that matches your memory.
this is not what i heard.......i kwown i could call the priest but it was all out of town
i dont know the name.....i will try to find the right answer.....thanks anyhow....not a
