1 Corinthians 13:4

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
New King James Version

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
New American Standard Bible

Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,
New International Version

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
The Amplified Bible

Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

Love meekly and patiently bears ill treatment from others. Love is kind, gentle, benign, pervading and penetrating the whole nature, mellowing all which would have been harsh and austere; is not envious. Love does not brag, nor does it show itself off, is not ostentatious,
Phillips’ Modern English

This love of which I speak is slow to lose patience – it looks for a way of being constructive. It is not possessive: it is neither anxious to impress nor does it cherish inflated ideas of its own importance.
Williams’ Language of the People

Love is so patient and so kind; love never boils with jealousy; it never boasts, is never puffed with pride;
