The 16 Most Romantic Lines from the Scriptures

New Testament

1 Corinthians:1-8

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. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 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.

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

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.

Ephesians 5:25

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.

1 John 3:18

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. . . .

Book of Mormon

Mosiah 18:21

. . . Having their hearts knit together in unity and in love one towards another.

Alma 38:12

Use boldness, but not overbearance; and also see that ye bridle all your passions, that ye may be filled with love.

Doctrine and Covenants

D&C 42:22

Thou shalt love thy wife with all thy heart, and shalt cleave unto her and none else.

D&C 132:19-20

If a man marry a wife by my word, which is my law, and by the new and everlasting covenant...it shall be said unto them—Ye shall come forth in the first resurrection...and shall inherit thrones, kingdoms, principalities, and powers, dominions, all heights and depths...and if ye abide in my covenant... it shall be done unto [you] in all things whatsoever my servant hath put upon [you], in time, and through all eternity; and shall be of full force when [you] are out of the world; and [you] shall pass by the angels, and the gods, which are set there, to [your] exaltation and glory in all things, as hath been sealed upon [your] heads, which glory shall be a fulness and a continuation of the seeds forever and ever. Then shall [you] be gods, because [you] have no end; therefore shall [you] be from everlasting to everlasting, because [you] continue; then shall [you] be above all, because all things are subject unto [you]. Then shall [you] be gods, because [you] have all power, and the angels are subject unto [you].
