New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
54 When this happens -- when our perishable earthly bodies have been transformed into heavenly bodies that will never die -- then at last the Scriptures will come true: "Death is swallowed up in victory. 54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory."
55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?" 55 "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?"
56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
57 How we thank God, who gives us victory over sin and death through Jesus Christ our Lord! 57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
