so also it hath been written, `The first man Adam became a living creature,' the last Adam [is] for a life-giving spirit,
but that which is spiritual [is] not first, but that which [was] natural, afterwards that which [is] spiritual.
The first man [is] out of the earth, earthy; the second man [is] the Lord out of heaven;
as [is] the earthy, such [are] also the earthy; and as [is] the heavenly, such [are] also the heavenly;
and, according as we did bear the image of the earthy, we shall bear also the image of the heavenly.
And this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood the reign of God is not able to inherit, nor doth the corruption inherit the incorruption;
lo, I tell you a secret; we indeed shall not all sleep, and we all shall be changed;
in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, in the last trumpet, for it shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we -- we shall be changed:
for it behoveth this corruptible to put on incorruption, and this mortal to put on immortality;
and when this corruptible may have put on incorruption, and this mortal may have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the word that hath been written, `The Death was swallowed up -- to victory;
where, O Death, thy sting? where, O Hades, thy victory?'
