Biblical Anniversary Quotes

Some beautiful bible quotes which work well as wedding anniversary quotes.

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. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him - a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:8
