For this material which can decay must be clothed with imperishability, this which is mortal must be clothed with immortality.
When what decays puts on imperishability and what is mortal puts on immortality, then this passage in the Tanakh will be fulfilled: "Death is swallowed up in victory.
"Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?"
The sting of death is sin; and sin draws its power from the Torah;
but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Yeshua the Messiah!
So, my dear brothers, stand firm and immovable, always doing the Lord's work as vigorously as you can, knowing that united with the Lord your efforts are not in vain.
