1 Corinthians 15:45-55 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible
45 Thus also it is written, "The first man, Adam, became a living soul";a the last Adam [became] a life-giving spirit. 46 But the spiritual [is] not first, but the natural; then the spiritual. 47 The first man [is] from the earth, made of earth; the second man [is] from heaven. 48 As the one [who is] made of earth, so also [are] those [who are] made of earth, and as the heavenly, so also [are] those [who are] heavenly. 49 And just as we have borne the image of the [one who is] made of earth, we will also bear the image of the heavenly. 50 But I say this, brothers, that flesh and blood is not able to inherit the kingdom of God, nor can corruption inherit incorruptibility. 51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: we will not all fall asleep, but we will all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For it is necessary [for] this perishable [body] to put on incorruptibility, and this mortal [body] to put on immortality. 54 But whenever this perishable [body] puts on incorruptibility and this mortal [body] puts on immortality, then the saying that is written will take place: "Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 Where, O death, [is] your victory? Where, O death, [is] your sting?
