1 Corinthians 15
15:1 Now I make known unto you brethren, the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye received, wherein also ye stand,
15:2 by which also ye are saved, if ye hold fast the word which I preached unto you, except ye believed in vain.
15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which also I received: that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
15:4 and that he was buried; and that he hath been raised on the third day according to the scriptures;
15:6 then he appeared to above five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain until now, but some are fallen asleep;
15:9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not found vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
15:12 Now if Christ is preached that he hath been raised from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
15:15 Yea, we are found false witnesses of God; because we witnessed of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead are not raised.
15:23 But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; then they that are Christ's, at his coming.
15:24 Then `cometh' the end, when he shall deliver up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have abolished all rule and all authority and power.
15:27 For, He put all things in subjection under his feet. But when he saith, All things are put in subjection, it is evident that he is excepted who did subject all things unto him.
15:28 And when all things have been subjected unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subjected to him that did subject all things unto him, that God may be all in all.
15:29 Else what shall they do that are baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why then are they baptized for them?
15:31 I protest by that glorifying in you, brethren, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
15:32 If after the manner of men I fought with beasts at Ephesus, what doth it profit me? If the dead are not raised, let us eat and drink, for to-morrow we die.
15:34 Awake to soberness righteously, and sin not; for some have no knowledge of God: I speak `this' to move you to shame.
15:37 and that which thou sowest, thou sowest not the body that shall be, but a bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other kind;
15:39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one `flesh' of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another flesh of birds, and another of fishes.
15:40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the `glory' of the terrestrial is another.
15:41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differeth from another star in glory.
15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
15:44 it is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual `body'.
15:45 So also it is written, The first man Adam became a living soul. The last Adam `became' a life-giving spirit.
15:46 Howbeit that is not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; then that which is spiritual.
15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
15:52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
15:54 But when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
15:58 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not vain in the Lord.
