1 Corinthians 15 (WEBP)

[1] Now I declare to you, brothers, the Good News which I preached to you, which also you received, in which you also stand,
[2] by which also you are saved, if you hold firmly the word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
[3] For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
[4] that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
[5] and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.
[6] Then he appeared to over five hundred brothers at once, most of whom remain until now, but some have also fallen asleep.
[7] Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles,
[8] and last of all, as to the child born at the wrong time, he appeared to me also.
[9] For I am the least of the apostles, who is not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the assembly of God.
[10] But by the grace of God I am what I am. His grace which was given to me was not futile, but I worked more than all of them; yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
[11] Whether then it is I or they, so we preach, and so you believed.
[12] Now if Christ is preached, that he has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?
[13] But if there is no resurrection of the dead, neither has Christ been raised.
[14] If Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith also is in vain.
[15] Yes, we are also found false witnesses of God, because we testified about God that he raised up Christ, whom he didn’t raise up if it is true that the dead are not raised.
[16] For if the dead aren’t raised, neither has Christ been raised.
[17] If Christ has not been raised, your faith is vain; you are still in your sins.
[18] Then they also who are fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
[19] If we have only hoped in Christ in this life, we are of all men most pitiable.
[20] But now Christ has been raised from the dead. He became the first fruit of those who are asleep.
[21] For since death came by man, the resurrection of the dead also came by man.
[22] For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.
[23] But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, then those who are Christ’s at his coming.
[24] Then the end comes, when he will deliver up the Kingdom to God the Father, when he will have abolished all rule and all authority and power.
[25] For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.
[26] The last enemy that will be abolished is death.
[27] For, “He put all things in subjection under his feet.” But when he says, “All things are put in subjection”, it is evident that he is excepted who subjected all things to him.
[28] When all things have been subjected to him, then the Son will also himself be subjected to him who subjected all things to him, that God may be all in all.
[29] Or else what will they do who are baptized for the dead? If the dead aren’t raised at all, why then are they baptized for the dead?
[30] Why do we also stand in jeopardy every hour?
[31] I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
[32] If I fought with animals at Ephesus for human purposes, what does it profit me? If the dead are not raised, then “let’s eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.”
[33] Don’t be deceived! “Evil companionships corrupt good morals.”
[34] Wake up righteously and don’t sin, for some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame.
[35] But someone will say, “How are the dead raised?” and, “With what kind of body do they come?”
[36] You foolish one, that which you yourself sow is not made alive unless it dies.
[37] That which you sow, you don’t sow the body that will be, but a bare grain, maybe of wheat, or of some other kind.
[38] But God gives it a body even as it pleased him, and to each seed a body of its own.
[39] All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds.
[40] There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial differs from that of the terrestrial.
[41] There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory.
[42] So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown perishable; it is raised imperishable.
[43] It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power.
[44] It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body and there is also a spiritual body.
[45] So also it is written, “The first man Adam became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
[46] However, that which is spiritual isn’t first, but that which is natural, then that which is spiritual.
[47] The first man is of the earth, made of dust. The second man is the Lord from heaven.
[48] As is the one made of dust, such are those who are also made of dust; and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
[49] As we have borne the image of those made of dust, let’s also bear the image of the heavenly.
[50] Now I say this, brothers, that flesh and blood can’t inherit God’s Kingdom; neither does the perishable inherit imperishable.
[51] Behold, I tell you a mystery. We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed,
[52] in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed.
[53] For this perishable body must become imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.
[54] But when this perishable body will have become imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then what is written will happen: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
[55] “Death, where is your sting? Hades, where is your victory?”
[56] The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
[57] But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
[58] Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the Lord’s work, because you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 15 (KJVS)

[1] Moreover , brethren , I declare () unto you the gospel which I preached () unto you , which also ye have received (), and wherein ye stand ();
[2] By which also ye are saved (), if ye keep () in memory what I preached () unto you , unless ye have believed () in vain .
[3] For I delivered () unto you first of all that which I also received (), how that Christ died () for our sins according to the scriptures ;
[4] And that he was buried (), and that he rose again () the third day according to the scriptures :
[5] And that he was seen () of Cephas , then of the twelve :
[6] After that , he was seen () of above five hundred brethren at once ; of whom the greater part remain () unto this present , but some are fallen asleep ().
[7] After that , he was seen () of James ; then of all the apostles .
[8] And last of all he was seen () of me also , as of one born out of due time .
[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 .
[10] But by the grace of God I am () what I am (): and his grace which [was bestowed] upon me was () not in vain ; but I laboured () more abundantly than they all : yet not I , but the grace of God which was with me .
[11] Therefore whether [it were] I or they , so we preach (), and so ye believed ().
[12] Now if Christ be preached () that he rose () from the dead , how say () some among you that there is () no resurrection of the dead ?
[13] But if there be () no resurrection of the dead , then is Christ not risen ():
[14] And if Christ be not risen (), then [is] our preaching vain , and your faith [is] also vain .
[15] Yea , and we are found () false witnesses of God ; because we have testified () of God that he raised up () Christ : whom he raised not up (), if so be that the dead rise () not .
[16] For if the dead rise () not , then is not Christ raised ():
[17] And if Christ be not raised (), your faith [is] vain ; ye are () yet in your sins .
[18] Then they also which are fallen asleep () in Christ are perished ().
[19] If in this life only we have hope () () in Christ , we are () of all men most miserable .
[20] But now is Christ risen () from the dead , [and] become () the firstfruits of them that slept ().
[21] For since by man [came] death , by man [came] also the resurrection of the dead .
[22] For as in Adam all die (), even so in Christ shall all be made alive ().
[23] But every man in his own order : Christ the firstfruits ; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming .
[24] Then [cometh] the end , when he shall have delivered up () the kingdom to God , even the Father ; when he shall have put down () all rule and all authority and power .
[25] For he must () reign (), till he hath put () all enemies under his feet .
[26] The last enemy [that] shall be destroyed () [is] death .
[27] For he hath put () all things under his feet . But when he saith () all things are put under () [him, it is] manifest that he is excepted , which did put all things under () him .
[28] And when all things shall be subdued () unto him , then shall the Son also himself be subject () unto him that put all things under () him , that God may be () all in all .
[29] Else what shall they do () which are baptized () for the dead , if the dead rise () not at all ? why are they then baptized () for the dead ?
[30] And why stand we in jeopardy () every hour ?
[31] I protest by your rejoicing which I have () in Christ Jesus our Lord , I die () daily .
[32] If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts () at Ephesus , what advantageth it me , if the dead rise () not ? let us eat () and drink (); for to morrow we die ().
[33] Be not deceived (): evil communications corrupt () good manners .
[34] Awake () to righteousness , and sin () not ; for some have () not the knowledge of God : I speak () [this] to your shame .
[35] But some [man] will say (), How are the dead raised up ()? and with what body do they come ()?
[36] [Thou] fool , that which thou sowest () is not quickened (), except it die ():
[37] And that which thou sowest (), thou sowest () not that body that shall be (), but bare grain , it may chance () of wheat , or of some other [grain]:
[38] But God giveth () it a body as it hath pleased him (), and to every seed his own body .
[39] All flesh [is] not the same flesh : but [there is] one [kind of] flesh of men , another flesh of beasts , another of fishes , [and] another of birds .
[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 .
[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 .
[42] So also [is] the resurrection of the dead . It is sown () in corruption ; it is raised () in incorruption :
[43] It is sown () in dishonour ; it is raised () in glory : it is sown () in weakness ; it is raised () in power :
[44] It is sown () a natural body ; it is raised () a spiritual body . There is () a natural body , and there is () a spiritual body .
[45] And so it is written (), The first man Adam was made () a living () soul ; the last Adam [was made] a quickening () spirit .
[46] Howbeit that [was] not first which is spiritual , but that which is natural ; and afterward that which is spiritual .
[47] The first man [is] of the earth , earthy : the second man [is] the Lord from heaven .
[48] As [is] the earthy , such [are] they also that are earthy : and as [is] the heavenly , such [are] they also that are heavenly .
[49] And as we have borne () the image of the earthy , we shall also bear () the image of the heavenly .
[50] Now this I say (), brethren , that flesh and blood cannot () inherit () the kingdom of God ; neither doth corruption inherit () incorruption .
[51] Behold (), I shew () you a mystery ; We shall not all sleep (), but we shall all be changed (),
[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 ().
[53] For this corruptible must () put on () incorruption , and this mortal [must] put on () immortality .
[54] So when this corruptible shall have put on () incorruption , and this mortal shall have put on () immortality , then shall be brought to pass () the saying that is written (), Death is swallowed up () in
