1 Corinthians 13:6 KJV
Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
1 Corinthians 13:6 NASB95
does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;
1 Corinthians 13:6 NIV
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
Love is patient
love is kind
It does not envy
it does not boast
it is not proud
It does not dishonor others
it is not self-seeking
it is not easily angered
it keeps no record of wrongs
It always protects
All of these have to do with one another, so I assume vs. 6 has to do with loving one another as well.
Granted we should not delight in evil and we should rejoice with the truth, but what does this have to do with loving others?
My best guess is that there is no form of evil that doesn't also hurt others in some way. Whether cheating on one's taxes, debauchery (e.g. - overeating in secret), etc., it finds its way to hurting other people.
Is this what Paul meant? What are your thoughts? Thank you.
