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 also1in dangereveryhour?
I affirm, brethren, by the boasting in you which I have in ChristJesus our Lord, 2I diedaily .
32Ifafrom humanmotives I 3fought with wildbeasts at 4Ephesus, what does it profit me? If the dead are not raised, 5LET US EAT AND DRINK, FOR TOMORROW WE DIE.
336Do not be deceived: "Badcompanycorruptsgoodmorals."
347Becomesober-mindedbas you ought, and stopsinning; for somehave8noknowledge of God. 9I speak this to your shame.
But 10someone will say, "How are 11the deadraised? And with whatkind of body do they come?"
3612You fool! That which you 13sow 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 csomethingelse.
But Godgives it a bodyjust as He wished, and 14to 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.
4215Soalso is the resurrection of the dead. It is sownd16a perishable body, it is raisede17an imperishable body;
it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in 18glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;
it is sown a 19naturalbody, it is raised a 20spiritualbody. If there is a naturalbody, there is also a spiritual body.
45Soalso it is written, "The first21MAN, Adam, BECAME A LIVINGSOUL." The 22lastAdam became a 23life-givingspirit.
46However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual.
The firstman is 24from the earth, f25earthy; the secondman is from heaven.
As is the earthy, soalso are those who are earthy; and as is the heavenly, 26soalso are those who are heavenly.
49Just as we have 27borne the image of the earthy, gwe 28will alsobear the image of the heavenly.
50Now I saythis, brethren, that 29flesh and bloodcannot30inherit the kingdom of God; nor does hthe perishableinheriti31the imperishable.
51Behold, I tell you a 32mystery; we will not allsleep, but we will all be 33changed,
in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the lasttrumpet; for 34the trumpet will sound, and 35the dead will be raisedjimperishable, and 36we will be changed.
For thiskperishablemustput on l37the imperishable, and this38mortal must put on immortality.
But whenthismperishable will have put on nthe imperishable, and thismortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, "39DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP in victory.
"40O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR VICTORY? O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?"
The sting of 41death is sin, and 42the power of sin is the law;
but 43thanks be to God, who gives us the 44victorythrough our LordJesusChrist.
5845Therefore, my belovedbrethren, be steadfast, immovable, alwaysabounding in 46the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.
