1. Korintherbrev 13,12:
Endnu ser vi i et spejl, i en g├ąde,
men da skal vi se ansigt til ansigt.
Nu erkender jeg stykkevis,
men da skal jeg kende fuldt ud,
ligesom jeg selv er kendt fuldt ud.

1. Corintian 13, 12:
They can only be seen as by the reflection in a mirror,
or in the description of a riddle;
but hereafter our knowledge will be free from all obscurity and error.
It is the light of heaven only,
that will remove all clouds and darkness that hide the face of God from us.
