1 Corinthians Chapter
Though I speak with the tongues of men
and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as
sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and

charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor,
and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity,

We are bound to thank God always for you,
brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth
exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward
each other aboundeth.
II Timothy 2:22
Flee also youthful lusts: but follow
righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on
the Lord out of a pure heart.
