1 Corinthians 15:20-57

ESV 20 But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits 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. ESV 21 For as by a man came death, by a man has come 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. ESV 22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. NIV 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. ESV 23 But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, 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. ESV 24 Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule 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. ESV 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. ESV 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death. NIV 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death. ESV 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 he is excepted 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. ESV 28 When all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to him who put all things in subjection under him, 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. ESV 29 Otherwise, what do people mean by being baptized 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? ESV 30 Why are we in danger every hour? NIV 30 And as for us, why do we endanger ourselves every hour? ESV 31 I protest, brothers, by my pride in you, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die every day! NIV 31 I die every day--I mean that, brothers--just as surely as I glory over you in Christ Jesus our Lord. ESV 32 What do I gain if, humanly speaking, I fought with beasts at Ephesus? 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." ESV 33 Do not be deceived: "Bad company ruins good morals." NIV 33 Do not be misled: "Bad company corrupts good character." ESV 34 Wake up from your drunken stupor, as is right, and do not go on 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. ESV 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?" ESV 36 You 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. ESV 37 And what you sow is not the body that is to be, but a bare kernel, 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. ESV 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. ESV 39 For not all flesh is the same, but there is one kind for humans, 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. ESV 40 There are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is of one kind, and the glory of the earthly is of 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. ESV 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. ESV 42 So is it 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; ESV 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; ESV 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. ESV 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. ESV 46 But it is not the spiritual that is first but the natural, and then the spiritual. NIV 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. ESV 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. ESV 48 As was the man of dust, so also are those who are of the dust, and as is the man of heaven, so also 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. ESV 49 Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall 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. ESV 50 I tell you this, brothers: 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. ESV 51 Behold! I tell you a mystery. 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-- ESV 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 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. ESV 53 For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. NIV 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. ESV 54 When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: "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." ESV 55 "O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?" NIV 55 "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" ESV 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. ESV 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.
