1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

CEB 13 Brothers and sisters, we want you to know about people who have died so that you won't mourn like others who don't have any hope. NRS 13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who have died, so that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. CEB 14 Since we believe that Jesus died and rose, so we also believe that God will bring with him those who have died in Jesus. NRS 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have died. CEB 15 What we are saying is a message from the Lord: we who are alive and still around at the Lord's coming definitely won't go ahead of those who have died. NRS 15 For this we declare to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will by no means precede those who have died. CEB 16 This is because the Lord himself will come down from heaven with the signal of a shout by the head angel and a blast on God's trumpet. First, those who are dead in Christ will rise. NRS 16 For the Lord himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel's call and with the sound of God's trumpet, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. CEB 17 Then, we who are living and still around will be taken up together with them in the clouds to meet with the Lord in the air. That way we will always be with the Lord. NRS 17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord forever. CEB 18 So encourage each other with these words. NRS 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.
