1 Corinthians 15

NRS 1 Now I would remind you, brothers and sisters, of the good news that I proclaimed to you, which you in turn received, in which also you 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. NRS 2 through which also you are being saved, if you hold firmly to the message that I proclaimed to you—unless you have come to believe in vain. 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. NRS 3 For I handed on to you as of first importance what I in turn had received: 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, NRS 4 and that he was buried, and that he was raised 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, NRS 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. NIV 5 and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. NRS 6 Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers and sisters at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died. 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. NRS 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. NIV 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, NRS 8 Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. NIV 8 and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born. NRS 9 For I am the least of the apostles, unfit 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. NRS 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me has not been in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them—though it was not I, but the grace of God that is 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. NRS 11 Whether then it was I or they, so we proclaim and so you have come to believe. NIV 11 Whether, then, it was I or they, this is what we preach, and this is what you believed. NRS 12 Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say 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? NRS 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised; NIV 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. NRS 14 and if Christ has not been raised, then our proclamation has been in vain and your faith has been in vain. NIV 14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. NRS 15 We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified of God that he raised Christ—whom he did not raise if it is true that 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. NRS 16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised. NIV 16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. NRS 17 If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and 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. NRS 18 Then those also who have died in Christ have perished. NIV 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. NRS 19 If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied. NIV 19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men. NRS 20 But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have died. NIV 20 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. NRS 21 For since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead has also come through a human being; NIV 21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. NRS 22 for as all die in Adam, so all will be made alive in Christ. NIV 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. NRS 23 But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ. NIV 23 But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. NRS 24 Then comes the end, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father, after he has destroyed every ruler and every 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. NRS 25 For he must 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. NRS 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death. NIV 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death. NRS 27 For "God has put all things in subjection under his feet." But when it says, "All things are put in subjection," it is plain that this does not include the one who put all things in subjection under 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. NRS 28 When all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to the one who put all things in subjection under him, so 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. NRS 29 Otherwise, what will those people do who receive baptism on behalf of the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized on their behalf? 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? NRS 30 And why are we putting ourselves in danger every hour? NIV 30 And as for us, why do we endanger ourselves every hour? NRS 31 I die every day! That is as certain, brothers and sisters, as my boasting of you—a boast that I make 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. NRS 32 If with merely human hopes I fought with wild animals at Ephesus, what would I have gained by it? 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." NRS 33 Do not be deceived: "Bad company ruins good morals." NIV 33 Do not be misled: "Bad company corrupts good character." NRS 34 Come to a sober and right mind, and sin no more; for some people 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. NRS 35 But someone will ask, "How are the dead raised? With what kind of body do they come?" NIV 35 But someone may ask, "How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?" NRS 36 Fool! 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. NRS 37 And as for what you sow, you do not sow the body that is to be, but a bare seed, perhaps of wheat or of some other grain. 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. NRS 38 But God gives it a body as he has chosen, and to each kind of seed 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. NRS 39 Not all flesh is alike, but there is one flesh for human beings, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish. NIV 39 All flesh is not the same: Men have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another. NRS 40 There are both heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is one thing, and that of the earthly 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. NRS 41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; indeed, 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. NRS 42 So it is with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable, what is raised is imperishable. NIV 42 So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; NRS 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; NRS 44 It is sown a physical body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a physical 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. NRS 45 Thus it is written, "The first man, Adam, became a living being"; 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. NRS 46 But it is not the spiritual that is first, but the physical, and then the spiritual. NIV 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. NRS 47 The first man was from the earth, a man of dust; the second man is from heaven. NIV 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven. NRS 48 As was the man of dust, so are those who are of the dust; and as is the man of heaven, so are those who are of heaven. 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. NRS 49 Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we will also bear the image of the man of heaven. 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. NRS 50 What I am saying, brothers and sisters, is this: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the 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. NRS 51 Listen, I will tell you a mystery! We will not all die, 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-- NRS 52 in a moment, in the twinkling 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. NRS 53 For this perishable body must put on imperishability, and this mortal body must put on immortality. NIV 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. NRS 54 When this perishable body puts on imperishability, and this mortal body puts on immortality, then the saying that is written will 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." NRS 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?" NRS 56 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. NRS 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. NRS 58 Therefore, my beloved, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord, because you know that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. 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.
