What the Bible has to say about Love

(1 John 4:7-8 KJV)
(7) Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. (8) He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

(1 Corinthians 13:1-8a,13 KJV)
(1) 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 under- stand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not 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, it profiteth me nothing. (4) Charity suffereth long, {and} is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, (5) Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; (6) Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; (7) Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. (8) Charity never faileth: but whether {there be} prophecies, they shall fail; whether {there be} tongues, they shall cease; whether {there be} knowledge, it shall vanish away. (13) And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these {is} charity.

(1 John 4:10-12 KJV)
(10) Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son {to be} the propitiation for our sins. (11) Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. (12) No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

(John 15:9-10 KJV)
(9) As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. (10) If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

(John 14:21 KJV)
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

(John 15:12-14,17 KJV)
(12) This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. (13) Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (14) Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. (17) These things I command you, that ye love one another.

(Mark 12:30-31,33 KJV)
(30) And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this {is} the first commandment. (31) And the second {is} like, {namely} this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. (33) And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love {his} neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.

(1 John 4:16 KJV)
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

(1 John 4:21 KJV)
And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

(Jeremiah 31:3 KJV)
The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, {saying}, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

(John 16:27 KJV)
For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

(Romans 5:8 KJV)
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

(John 3:16 KJV)
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

(Romans 8:38-39 KJV)
(38) For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, (39) Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

(John 13:34-35 KJV)
(34) A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. (35) By this shall all {men} know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
