It is not easily irritated. “Love…thinks no evil” (vs. 5) – “thinks” - present middle indicative of logidzomai – to count; calculate; enumerate; to set down as a matter of account; to think upon; ponder. “Evil” – kakos – wicked; corrupt; bad; destructive; distressing; wrong thinking; worthless thinking. Anything that is not a part of Divine Good. This is the thinking of Satan. It doesn’t plot evil or mind other people’s business. (Cf. Proverbs 6:16-19.) For right thinking, see Romans 12:9, 17-19.

It doesn’t rejoice over the failures of others; it isn’t happy when others are in trouble; it has no expression of jealousy or vindictiveness; it doesn’t have a “I told you so” attitude.

Love rejoices in those things which line up with Divine norms & standards. The Filling of the Holy Spirit produces a hunger for the Word of God.
I Corinthians 13:1-8 “Love does…bear all things” (vs. 7) – present active indicative of stegō – to protect or keep by covering; to preserve; to hold in. To bear up against - idea of supporting. To cover with silence; to keep secret – doesn’t betray a confidence.
I Corinthians 13:1-8 “Love does…believe all things” (vs. 7) – present active indicative of pisteuō – to believe; have a mental persuasion; be convinced; place confidence in. Not gullibility, but Faith Rest (application of the Word) in ALL situations of life; the NOW situations! Doesn’t look for the bad side, but knows Romans 8:28; Ephesians 1:19; Mark 9:23
