Scriptures on Love

Douay-Rheims/Vulgate

(Proverbs 3:11-12) My son, reject not the correction of the Lord: and do not faint when thou art chastised by him: For whom the Lord loveth, he chastiseth: and as a father in the son he pleaseth himself.

3:11 Disciplinam Domini, fili mi, ne abiicias: nec deficias cum ab eo corriperis: 3:12 quem enim diligit Dominus, corripit: et quasi pater in filio complacet sibi.

(Hebrews 12:6-7) For whom the Lord loveth he chastiseth: and he scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. Persevere under discipline. God dealeth with you as with his sons. For what son is there whom the father doth not correct?

12:6 Quem enim diligit Dominus, castigat: flagellat autem omnem filium, quem recipit. 12:7 In disciplina perseverate. Tamquam filiis vobis offert se Deus: quis enim filius, quem non corripit pater?

(John 3:16) For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son: that whosoever believeth in him may not perish, but may have life everlasting.

3:16 Sic enim Deus dilexit mundum, ut Filium suum unigenitum daret: ut omnis, qui credit in eum, non pereat, sed habeat vitam æternam.

(John 14:21) 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.

14:21 Qui habet mandata mea, et servat ea: ille est, qui diligit me. Qui autem diligit me, diligetur a Patre meo: et ego diligam eum, et manifestabo ei meipsum.

(John 15:9) As the Father hath loved me, I also have loved you. Abide in my love.

15:9 Sicut dilexit me Pater, et ego dilexi vos. Manete in dilectione mea.

(John 15:12-17) This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends, if you do the things that I command you. I will not now call you servants: for the servant knoweth not what his lord doth. But I have called you friends. because all things, whatsoever I have heard of my Father, I have made known to you. You have not chosen me: but I have chosen you; and have appointed you, that you should go and should bring forth fruit; and your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. These things I command you, that you love one another.

15:12 Hoc est præceptum meum ut diligatis invicem, sicut dilexi vos. 15:13 Maiorem hac dilectionem nemo habet, ut animam suam ponat qui pro amicis suis. 15:14 Vos amici mei estis, si feceritis quæ ego præcipio vobis. 15:15 Iam non dicam vos servos: quia servus nescit quid faciat dominus eius. Vos autem dixi amicos: quia omnia quæcumque audivi a Patre meo, nota feci vobis. 15:16 Non vos me elegistis: sed ego elegi vos, et posui vos ut eatis, et fructum afferatis: et fructus vester maneat: ut quodcumque petieritis Patrem in nomine meo, det vobis. 15:17 Hæc mando vobis, ut diligatis invicem.

(Romans 8:38-39) For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor might, 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.

8:38 Certus sum enim quia neque mors, neque vita, neque angeli, neque principatus, neque virtutes, neque instantia, neque futura, neque fortitudo, 8:39 neque altitudo, neque profundum, neque creatura alia poterit nos separare a charitate Dei, quæ est in Christo Iesu Domino nostro.

(1 John 3:16-18) In this we have known the charity of God, because he hath laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. He that hath the substance of this world and shall see his brother in need and shall shut up his bowels from him: how doth the charity of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word nor in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

3:16 In hoc cognovimus charitatem Dei, quoniam ille animam suam pro nobis posuit: et nos debemus pro fratribus animas ponere. 3:17 Qui habuerit substantiam huius mundi, et viderit fratrem suum necessitatem habere, et clauserit viscera sua ab eo: quomodo charitas Dei manet in eo? 3:18 Filioli mei, non diligamus verbo, neque lingua, sed opere et veritate.

(1 John 4:7-11) Dearly beloved, let us love one another: for charity is of God. And every one that loveth is born of God and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God: for God is charity. By this hath the charity of God appeared towards us, because God hath sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we may live by him. In this is charity: not as though we had loved God, but because he hath first loved us, and sent his Son to be a propitiation for our sins. My dearest, if God hath so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

4:7 Charissimi, diligamus nos invicem: quia charitas ex Deo est. Et omnis, qui diligit, ex Deo natus est, et cognoscit Deum. 4:8 Qui non diligit, non novit Deum: quoniam Deus charitas est. 4:9 In hoc apparuit charitas Dei in nobis, quoniam Filium suum unigenitum misit Deus in mundum, ut vivamus per eum. 4:10 In hoc est charitas: non quasi nos dilexerimus Deum, sed quoniam ipse prior dilexit nos, et misit Filium suum propitiationem pro peccatis nostris. 4:11 Charissimi, si sic Deus dilexit nos: et nos debemus alterutrum diligere.

(1 John 4:14-16) And we have seen and do testify that the Father hath sent his Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God abideth in him, and he in God. And we have known and have believed the charity which God hath to us. God is charity: and he that abideth in charity abideth in God, and God in him.

4:14 Et vos vidimus, et testificamur quoniam Pater misit Filium suum Salvatorem mundi. 4:15 Quisquis confessus fuerit quoniam Iesus est Filius Dei, Deus in eo manet, et ipse in Deo. 4:16 Et nos cognovimus, et credidimus charitati, quam habet Deus in nobis. Deus charitas est: et qui manet in charitate, in Deo manet, et Deus in eo.
