Those Who Died in Christ

13 But 1we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who 2are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do 3the rest who have 4no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, 5even so God will bring with Him 6those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.
15 For this we say to you 7by the word of the Lord, that 8we who are alive and remain until 9the coming of the Lord, will not precede 10those who have fallen asleep.
