1 Corinthians 13:5

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
New King James Version

does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
New American Standard Bible

does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,
New International Version

It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
The Amplified Bible

It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

does not act unbecomingly, does not seek after the things which are its own, is not irritated, provoked, exasperated, aroused to anger, does not take into account the evil [which it suffers],
Phillips’ Modern English

Love has good manners and does not pursue selfish advantage. It is not touchy. It does not keep account of evil
Williams’ Language of the People

it does not act with rudeness, or insist upon its rights; it never gets provoked, it never harbors evil thoughts;

  6. Perplexity; The End Time Men - W.W. Fischer If we are afflicted or poor in spirit, or poor in daily needs, then the Lord Himself is maintaining our causes and pleading our case before the Father. You can’t ask for more than that.
