1 Corinthians 13:8 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Faileth (ἐκπίπει)

Falls off (ἐκ) like a leaf or flower, as James 1:11; 1 Peter 1:24. In classical Greek it was used of an actor who was hissed off the stage. But the correct reading is πίπτει falls, in a little more general sense, as Luke 16:17. Love holds its place.
