1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (Amplified and paraphrased):

I endure long and I am patient and kind; I never am envious or boil over with jealousy; I’m not boastful or vainglorious, I do not display myself haughtily.

I am not conceited, arrogant, and inflated with pride; I am not rude (unmannerly), and I do not act unbecomingly. I (God’s love in me) do not insist on my own rights or my own way, for I am not selfish (self-seeking); I am not touchy or fretful or resentful; I take no account of any evil done to me, I pay no attention to a suffered wrong. 

I do not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but I rejoice when right and truth prevail.

I bear up under anything and everything that comes, and I’m ever ready to believe the best of every person. My hopes are fadeless under all circumstances and I endure everything (without weakening).

I never fail, never fade out or become obsolete or come to an end.
