For now we see through a glass, darkly

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

From the First Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians. Bible, 1 Corinthians 13, verses 11-12
spake (verb): spoke (old English - verb 'to speak')
