1 Corinthians 15

WNT 1 But let me recall to you, brethren, the Good News which I brought you, which you accepted, and on which you are standing, 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. WNT 2 through which also you are obtaining salvation, if you bear in mind the words in which I proclaimed it--unless indeed your faith has been unreal from the very first. 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. WNT 3 For I repeated to you the all-important fact which also I had been taught, that Christ died for our sins in accordance with 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, WNT 4 that He was buried; that He rose to life again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, NIV 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, WNT 5 and was seen by Peter, and then by the Twelve. NIV 5 and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. WNT 6 Afterwards He was seen by more than five hundred brethren at once, most of whom are still alive, although some of them have now 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. WNT 7 Afterwards He was seen by James, and then by all the Apostles. NIV 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, WNT 8 And last of all, as to one of untimely birth, He appeared to me also. NIV 8 and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born. WNT 9 For I am the least of the Apostles, and am not fit 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. WNT 10 But what I am I am by the grace of God, and His grace bestowed upon me did not prove ineffectual. But I labored more strenuously than all the rest--yet it was not I, but God's grace working 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. WNT 11 But whether it is I or they, this is the way we preach and the way that you came to believe. NIV 11 Whether, then, it was I or they, this is what we preach, and this is what you believed. WNT 12 But if Christ is preached as having risen from the dead, how is it that some of you say that there is no such thing as a 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? WNT 13 If there is no such thing as a resurrection of the dead, then Christ Himself has not risen to life. NIV 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. WNT 14 And if Christ has not risen, it follows that what we preach is a delusion, and that your faith also is a delusion. NIV 14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. WNT 15 Nay more, we are actually being discovered to be bearing false witness about God, because we have testified that God raised Christ to life, whom He did not raise, if in reality none of the dead are 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. WNT 16 For if none of the dead are raised to life, then Christ has not risen; NIV 16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. WNT 17 and if Christ has not risen, your faith is a vain thing--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. WNT 18 It follows also that those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. NIV 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. WNT 19 If in this present life we have a *hope* resting on Christ, and nothing more, we are more to be pitied than all the rest of the world. NIV 19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men. WNT 20 But, in reality, Christ *has* risen from among the dead, being the first to do so of those who are asleep. NIV 20 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. WNT 21 For seeing that death came through man, through man comes also the resurrection of the dead. NIV 21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. WNT 22 For just as through Adam all die, so also through Christ all will be made alive again. NIV 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. WNT 23 But this will happen to each in the right order--Christ having been the first to rise, and afterwards Christ's people rising at His return. NIV 23 But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. WNT 24 Later on, comes the End, when He is to surrender the Kingship to God, the Father, when He shall have overthrown all other government and all other 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. WNT 25 For He must continue King until He shall have put all His enemies under His feet. NIV 25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. WNT 26 The last enemy that is to be overthrown is Death; NIV 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death. WNT 27 for He will have put all things in subjection under His feet. And when He shall have declared that "All things are in subjection," it will be with the manifest exception of Him who has reduced them all to subjection to Him. 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. WNT 28 But when the whole universe has been made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also become subject to Him who has made the universe subject 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. WNT 29 Otherwise what will become of those who got themselves baptized for the dead? If the dead do not rise at all, why are these baptized for 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? WNT 30 Why also do we Apostles expose ourselves to danger every hour? NIV 30 And as for us, why do we endanger ourselves every hour? WNT 31 I protest, brethren, as surely as I glory over you--which I may justly do in Christ Jesus our Lord--that I die day by day. NIV 31 I die every day--I mean that, brothers--just as surely as I glory over you in Christ Jesus our Lord. WNT 32 If from merely human motives I have fought with wild beasts in Ephesus, what profit is it to me? If the dead do not rise, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we are to 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." WNT 33 Do not deceive yourselves: "Evil companionships corrupt good morals." NIV 33 Do not be misled: "Bad company corrupts good character." WNT 34 Wake from this drunken fit; live righteous lives, and cease to sin; for some have no knowledge of God: I speak thus in order to move you to 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. WNT 35 But some one will say, "How can the dead rise? And with what kind of body do they come back?" NIV 35 But someone may ask, "How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?" WNT 36 Foolish man! the seed you yourself sow has no life given to it unless it first dies; NIV 36 How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. WNT 37 and as for what you sow, it is not the plant which is to be that you are sowing, but a bare grain, of wheat (it may be) or of something else, and God gives it a body as He has seen fit, 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. WNT 38 and to each kind of seed a body of its own. NIV 38 But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body. WNT 39 All flesh is not the same: there is human flesh, and flesh of cattle, of birds, and of fishes. NIV 39 All flesh is not the same: Men have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another. WNT 40 There are bodies which are celestial and there are bodies which are earthly, but the glory of the celestial ones is one thing, and that of the earthly ones is another. 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. WNT 41 There is one glory of the sun, another of the moon, and another 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. WNT 42 It is the same with the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in a state of decay, it is raised free from decay; NIV 42 So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; WNT 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; WNT 44 an animal body is sown, a spiritual body is raised. As surely as there is an animal body, so 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. WNT 45 In the same way also it is written, "The first man Adam became a living animal"; the last Adam is 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. WNT 46 Nevertheless, it is not what is spiritual that came first, but what is animal; what is spiritual came afterwards. NIV 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. WNT 47 The first man is a man of earth, earthy; the second man is from Heaven. NIV 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven. WNT 48 What the earthy one is, that also are those who are earthy; and what the heavenly One is, that 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. WNT 49 And as we have borne a resemblance to the earthy one, let us see to it that we also bear a resemblance to the heavenly One. 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. WNT 50 But this I tell you, brethren: our mortal bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God, nor will what is perishable inherit what is imperishable. NIV 50 I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. WNT 51 I tell you a truth hitherto kept secret: we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, NIV 51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed-- WNT 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the sounding of the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incapable of decay, and *we* shall 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. WNT 53 For so it must be: this perishable nature must clothe itself with what is imperishable, and this mortality must clothe itself with immortality. NIV 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. WNT 54 But when this perishable nature has put on what is imperishable, and this mortality has put on immortality, then will the words of Scripture be fulfilled, "Death has been 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." WNT 55 "Where, O death, is thy victory? Where, O death, is thy sting?" NIV 55 "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" WNT 56 Now sin is the sting of death, and sin derives its power from the Law; NIV 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. WNT 57 but God be thanked 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. WNT 58 Therefore, my dear brethren, be firm, unmovable, busily occupied at all times in the Lord's work, knowing that your toil is not fruitless 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.
