But nowChrist1has been raised from the dead, the 2firstfruits of those who 3are asleep.
For since4by a man came death, by a manalso came the resurrection of the dead.
For 5as in Adamalldie, soalso in aChristall will be madealive.
But each in his ownorder: Christ6the firstfruits, after that 7thosewho are Christ's at 8His coming,
24then comes the end, when He hands over 9the kingdom to the 10God and Father, when He has abolished11allrule and allauthority and power.
For He mustreign12until He has putall His enemiesunder His feet.
The lastenemy that will be 13abolished is death.
For 14HE HAS PUTALLTHINGS IN SUBJECTIONUNDER HIS FEET. But when He says, "15Allthings are put in subjection," it is evident that He is excepted who putallthings in subjection to Him.
28When16allthings are subjected to Him, then the SonHimselfalso will be subjected to the One who subjectedallthings to Him, so that 17God may be all in all.
29Otherwise, what will thosedo who are baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, whythen are they baptized for them?
30Why are we also18in dangereveryhour?
I affirm, brethren, by the boasting in you which I have in ChristJesus our Lord, 19I diedaily .
32Ifbfrom humanmotives I 20fought with wildbeasts at 21Ephesus, what does it profit me? If the dead are not raised, 22LET US EAT AND DRINK, FOR TOMORROW WE DIE.
3323Do not be deceived: "Badcompanycorruptsgoodmorals."
3424Becomesober-mindedcas you ought, and stopsinning; for somehave25noknowledge of God. 26I speak this to your shame.
But 27someone will say, "How are 28the deadraised? And with whatkind of body do they come?"
3629You fool! That which you 30sow does not come to lifeunless it dies;
and that which you sow, you do not sow the body which is to be, but a baregrain, perhaps of wheator of dsomethingelse.
But Godgives it a bodyjust as He wished, and 31to each of the seeds a body of its own.
39Allflesh is not the sameflesh, but there is one flesh of men, and anotherflesh of beasts, and anotherflesh of birds, and another of fish.
There are alsoheavenlybodies and earthlybodies, but the glory of the heavenly is one, and the glory of the earthly is another.
There is oneglory of the sun, and anotherglory of the moon, and anotherglory of the stars; for stardiffers from star in glory.
4232Soalso is the resurrection of the dead. It is sowne33a perishable body, it is raisedf34an imperishable body;
it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in 35glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;
it is sown a 36naturalbody, it is raised a 37spiritualbody. If there is a naturalbody, there is also a spiritual body.
45Soalso it is written, "The first38MAN, Adam, BECAME A LIVINGSOUL." The 39lastAdam became a 40life-givingspirit.
46However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual.
The firstman is 41from the earth, g42earthy; the secondman is from heaven.
As is the earthy, soalso are those who are earthy; and as is the heavenly, 43soalso are those who are heavenly.
49Just as we have 44borne the image of the earthy, hwe 45will alsobear the image of the heavenly.
