1 Corinthians 13:
7. [Love] continuously covers all mankind; it is habitually loyal to all humanity; it constantly has an expectation for all mankind; it is continuously remaining under and giving support to all people.
(or, since “all” can also be neuter: It progressively puts a protecting roof over all things; it is habitually trusting in, and believing for, all things; it is continually hoping in or for all things; it keeps on patiently enduring all things.)
8. The Love (or, again: This love) never – not even once – fails (falls out or lapses; = becomes fruitless or ineffectual; [other MSS: falls down; collapses]).
8. "Those who are clean in the heart [are] happy and blessed, because they, themselves, will see God!
(or: = The folks that have had the core of their
beings made clean [are] happy people, in that
they will continue to see God [in everything]!)
3. "The destitute folks [are] happy in spirit because the reign of the heavens continually belongs to them
(or: Blessed [are] those dependent for support on the Spirit, for the
kingdom from the sky and the atmosphere is continuing to pertain to
them; The people who need to beg for sustenance [are made] happy
by the Breath-effect because the effect of the sovereignty of the
heavens is being a source in and for them)!
