 {v.11-13} Clearly the drift of the passage is not to cast uncertainty on our present measure of knowledge, but to set forth its partial character, as compared with the fullness in glory. (Notes on 1 Corinthians 5:9-13 by W. Kelly)
 But scripture cannot be broken; and faith is the evidence or conviction of things not seen, as hope seen is not hope. (Rom. 8; Heb. 11) Faith and hope therefore refer only to the present state, love alone to eternity as well as to the present. (Notes on 1 Corinthians 5:9-13 by W. Kelly)
 In the perfect state faith will be changed to sight, and thus faith will have its end. Hope will end in fruition. Love alone will abide. Faith and hope make very good traveling companions, but we part company with them at the door of heaven. We go in with one thing -love. (1 Corinthians 13 by H. Smith)
