1 Corinthians 15

LEB 1 Now I make known to you, brothers, the gospel which I proclaimed to you, which you have also received, in which you also stand, NIV 1 Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. LEB 2 by which you are also being saved, if you hold fast to the message I proclaimed to you, unless you believed to no purpose. NIV 2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. LEB 3 For I passed on to you {as of first importance} what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, NIV 3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, LEB 4 and that he was buried, and that he was raised up on the third day according to the scriptures, NIV 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, LEB 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve, NIV 5 and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. LEB 6 then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at once, the majority of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep. NIV 6 After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. LEB 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, NIV 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, LEB 8 and last of all, as it were to one born at the wrong time, he appeared also to me. NIV 8 and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born. LEB 9 For I am the least of the apostles, not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. NIV 9 For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. LEB 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me has not been in vain, but I labored even more than all of them, and not I, but the grace of God with me. NIV 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them--yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me. LEB 11 Therefore whether I or those, in this way we preached, and in this way you believed. NIV 11 Whether, then, it was I or they, this is what we preach, and this is what you believed. LEB 12 Now if Christ is preached as raised up from the dead, how do some among you say that [there] is no resurrection of the dead? NIV 12 But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? LEB 13 But if [there] is no resurrection of the dead, Christ has not been raised [either]. NIV 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. LEB 14 But if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching [is] in vain, and your faith [is] in vain. NIV 14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. LEB 15 And also we are found [to be] false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if after all, then, the dead are not raised. NIV 15 More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. LEB 16 For if the dead are not raised, Christ has not been raised [either]. NIV 16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. LEB 17 But if Christ has not been raised, your faith [is] empty; you are still in your sins. NIV 17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. LEB 18 And as a further result, those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. NIV 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. LEB 19 If {we have put our hope} in Christ in this life only, we are of all people most pitiable. NIV 19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men. LEB 20 But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. NIV 20 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. LEB 21 For since through a man [came] death, also through a man [came] the resurrection of the dead. NIV 21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. LEB 22 For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. NIV 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. LEB 23 But each in his own group: Christ the first fruits, then those [who are] Christ's at his coming, NIV 23 But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. LEB 24 then the end, when he hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when he has abolished all rule and all authority and power. NIV 24 Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. LEB 25 For it is necessary for him to reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. NIV 25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. LEB 26 The last enemy to be abolished [is] death. NIV 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death. LEB 27 For "he subjected all [things] under his feet." But when it says "all [things]" are subjected, [it is] clear that the one who subjected all [things] to him [is] not included. NIV 27 For he "has put everything under his feet." Now when it says that "everything" has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ. LEB 28 But whenever all [things] are subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the one who subjected all [things] to him, in order that God may be all in all. NIV 28 When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all. LEB 29 Otherwise, why do they do [it], those who are being baptized on behalf of the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why indeed are they being baptized on behalf of them? NIV 29 Now if there is no resurrection, what will those do who are baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized for them? LEB 30 And why are we in danger every hour? NIV 30 And as for us, why do we endanger ourselves every hour? LEB 31 I die every day--yes indeed, by my boasting in you, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord! NIV 31 I die every day--I mean that, brothers--just as surely as I glory over you in Christ Jesus our Lord. LEB 32 If according to a human perspective I fought wild beasts at Ephesus, what benefit [is it] to me? If the dead are not raised, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die. NIV 32 If I fought wild beasts in Ephesus for merely human reasons, what have I gained? If the dead are not raised, "Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die." LEB 33 Do not be deceived! "Bad company corrupts good morals." NIV 33 Do not be misled: "Bad company corrupts good character." LEB 34 Sober up correctly and {stop sinning}, for some have no knowledge of God--I say [this] to your shame. NIV 34 Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God--I say this to your shame. LEB 35 But someone will say, "How are the dead raised? And with what sort of body do they come?" NIV 35 But someone may ask, "How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?" LEB 36 Foolish person! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. NIV 36 How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. LEB 37 And what you sow [is] not the body which it will become, but you sow the bare seed, whether perhaps of wheat or of some of the rest. NIV 37 When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. LEB 38 But God gives to it a body just as he wishes, and to each one of the seeds its own body. NIV 38 But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body. LEB 39 Not all flesh [is] the same, but [there is] one flesh of human beings, and another flesh of animals, and another flesh of birds, and another of fish, NIV 39 All flesh is not the same: Men have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another. LEB 40 and heavenly bodies and earthly bodies. But the glory of the heavenly [bodies] [is] of one kind, and the [glory] of the earthly [bodies] [is] of another kind. NIV 40 There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. LEB 41 [There is] one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars, for star differs from star in glory. NIV 41 The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor. LEB 42 Thus also [is] the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruptibility. NIV 42 So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; LEB 43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. NIV 43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; LEB 44 It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If [there] is a natural body, [there] is also a spiritual [body]. NIV 44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. LEB 45 Thus also it is written, "The first man, Adam, became a living soul"; the last Adam [became] a life-giving spirit. NIV 45 So it is written: "The first man Adam became a living being"; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. LEB 46 But the spiritual [is] not first, but the natural; then the spiritual. NIV 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. LEB 47 The first man [is] from the earth, made of earth; the second man [is] from heaven. NIV 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven. LEB 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. NIV 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the man from heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. LEB 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. NIV 49 And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven. LEB 50 But I say this, brothers, that flesh and blood is not able to inherit the kingdom of God, nor can corruption inherit incorruptibility. NIV 50 I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. LEB 51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: we will not all fall asleep, but we will all be changed, NIV 51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed-- LEB 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. NIV 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. LEB 53 For it is necessary [for] this perishable [body] to put on incorruptibility, and this mortal [body] to put on immortality. NIV 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. LEB 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. NIV 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." LEB 55 Where, O death, [is] your victory? Where, O death, [is] your sting? NIV 55 "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" LEB 56 Now the sting of death [is] sin, and the power of sin [is] the law. NIV 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. LEB 57 But thanks [be] to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! NIV 57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. LEB 58 So then, my dear brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, [because you] know that your labor is not [in] vain in the Lord. NIV 58 Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
