1 Corinthians 15:35-50

CEB 35 But someone will say, "How are the dead raised? What kind of body will they have when they come back?" NRS 35 But someone will ask, "How are the dead raised? With what kind of body do they come?" CEB 36 Look, fool! When you put a seed into the ground, it doesn't come back to life unless it dies. NRS 36 Fool! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. CEB 37 What you put in the ground doesn't have the shape that it will have, but it's a bare grain of wheat or some other seed. 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. CEB 38 God gives it the sort of shape that he chooses, and he gives each of the seeds its own shape. NRS 38 But God gives it a body as he has chosen, and to each kind of seed its own body. CEB 39 All flesh isn't alike. Humans have one kind of flesh, animals have another kind of flesh, birds have another kind of flesh, and fish have another kind. 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. CEB 40 There are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies. The heavenly bodies have one kind of glory, and the earthly bodies have another kind of glory. 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. CEB 41 The sun has one kind of glory, the moon has another kind of glory, and the stars have another kind of glory (but one star is different from another star in its glory). 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. CEB 42 It's the same with the resurrection of the dead: a rotting body is put into the ground, but what is raised won't ever decay. NRS 42 So it is with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable, what is raised is imperishable. CEB 43 It's degraded when it's put into the ground, but it's raised in glory. It's weak when it's put into the ground, but it's raised in power. NRS 43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. CEB 44 It's a physical body when it's put into the ground, but it's raised as a spiritual body. If there's a physical body, there's also a spiritual body. 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. CEB 45 So it is also written, The first human, Adam, became a living person, and the last Adam became a spirit that gives life. NRS 45 Thus it is written, "The first man, Adam, became a living being"; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit. CEB 46 But the physical body comes first, not the spiritual one—the spiritual body comes afterward. NRS 46 But it is not the spiritual that is first, but the physical, and then the spiritual. CEB 47 The first human was from the earth made from dust; the second human is from heaven. NRS 47 The first man was from the earth, a man of dust; the second man is from heaven. CEB 48 The nature of the person made of dust is shared by people who are made of dust, and the nature of the heavenly person is shared by heavenly people. 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. CEB 49 We will look like the heavenly person in the same way as we have looked like the person made from dust. 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. CEB 50 This is what I'm saying, brothers and sisters: Flesh and blood can't inherit God's kingdom. Something that rots can't inherit something that doesn't decay. 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.
