1 Corinthians 15:35-57

RSV 35 But some one 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?" RSV 36 You foolish man! 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. RSV 37 And what you sow is not the body which 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. RSV 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. RSV 39 For not all flesh is alike, but there is one kind for men, 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. RSV 40 There are celestial bodies and there are terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial 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. RSV 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. RSV 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; RSV 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; RSV 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. RSV 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. RSV 46 But it is not the spiritual which 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. RSV 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. RSV 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. RSV 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. RSV 50 I tell you this, brethren: 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. RSV 51 Lo! 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-- RSV 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. RSV 53 For this perishable nature must put on the imperishable, and this mortal nature must put on immortality. NIV 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. RSV 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." RSV 55 "O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting?" NIV 55 "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" RSV 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. RSV 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.
