1 Corinthians 15 (WEBP)
 Now I declare to you, brothers, the Good News which I preached to you, which also you received, in which you also stand,
 by which also you are saved, if you hold firmly the word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.
 Then he appeared to over five hundred brothers at once, most of whom remain until now, but some have also fallen asleep.
 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles,
 and last of all, as to the child born at the wrong time, he appeared to me also.
 For I am the least of the apostles, who is not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the assembly of God.
 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.
 Whether then it is I or they, so we preach, and so you believed.
 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?
 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, neither has Christ been raised.
 If Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith also is in vain.
 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.
 For if the dead aren’t raised, neither has Christ been raised.
 If Christ has not been raised, your faith is vain; you are still in your sins.
 Then they also who are fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
 If we have only hoped in Christ in this life, we are of all men most pitiable.
 But now Christ has been raised from the dead. He became the first fruit of those who are asleep.
 For since death came by man, the resurrection of the dead also came by man.
 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.
 But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, then those who are Christ’s at his coming.
 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.
 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.
 The last enemy that will be abolished is death.
 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.
 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.
 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?
 Why do we also stand in jeopardy every hour?
 I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
 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.”†
 Don’t be deceived! “Evil companionships corrupt good morals.”
 Wake up righteously and don’t sin, for some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame.
 But someone will say, “How are the dead raised?” and, “With what kind of body do they come?”
 You foolish one, that which you yourself sow is not made alive unless it dies.
 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.
 But God gives it a body even as it pleased him, and to each seed a body of its own.
 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.
 There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial differs from that of the terrestrial.
 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.
 So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown perishable; it is raised imperishable.
 It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power.
 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body and there is also a spiritual body.
 So also it is written, “The first man Adam became a living soul.”† The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
 However, that which is spiritual isn’t first, but that which is natural, then that which is spiritual.
 The first man is of the earth, made of dust. The second man is the Lord from heaven.
 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.
 As we have borne the image of those made of dust, let’s° also bear the image of the heavenly.
 Now I say this, brothers,§ that flesh and blood can’t inherit God’s Kingdom; neither does the perishable inherit imperishable.
 Behold,§ I tell you a mystery. We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed,
 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.
 For this perishable body must become imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.
 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.”†
 “Death, where is your sting? Hades,§ where is your victory?”†
 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
 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)
 Moreover G1161, brethren G80, I declare G1107 (PresActInd) unto you G5213 the gospel G2098 which G3739 I preached G2097 (AorMidInd) unto you G5213, which G3739 also G2532 ye have received G3880 (Aor2ActInd), and G2532 wherein G1722 G3739 ye stand G2476 (PerfActInd);
 By G1223 which G3739 also G2532 ye are saved G4982 (PresPasInd), if G1487 ye keep G2722 (PresActInd) in memory what G5101 G3056 I preached G2097 (AorMidInd) unto you G5213, unless G1622 G1508 ye have believed G4100 (AorActInd) in vain G1500.
 For G1063 I delivered G3860 (AorActInd) unto you G5213 first of all G1722 G4413 that which G3739 I G3880 also G2532 received G3880 (Aor2ActInd), how G3754 that Christ G5547 died G599 (Aor2ActInd) for G5228 our G2257 sins G266 according G2596 to the scriptures G1124;
 And G2532 that G3754 he was buried G2290 (Aor2PasDepSubj), and G2532 that G3754 he rose again G1453 (PerfPasInd) the third G5154 day G2250 according G2596 to the scriptures G1124:
 And G2532 that G3754 he was seen G3700 (AorPasInd) of Cephas G2786, then G1534 of the twelve G1427:
 After that G1899, he was seen G3700 (AorPasInd) of above G1883 five hundred G4001 brethren G80 at once G2178; of G1537 whom G3739 the greater part G4119 remain G3306 (PresActInd) unto G2193 this present G737, but G1161 some G5100 G2532 are fallen asleep G2837 (AorPasInd).
 After that G1899, he was seen G3700 (AorPasInd) of James G2385; then G1534 of all G3956 the apostles G652.
 And G1161 last G2078 of all G3956 he was seen G3700 (AorPasInd) of me also G2504, as G5619 of one born out of due time G1626.
 For G1063 I G1473 am G1510 (PresInd) the least G1646 of the apostles G652, that G3739 am G1510 (PresInd) not G3756 meet G2425 to be called G2564 (PresPasInf) an apostle G652, because G1360 I persecuted G1377 (AorActInd) the church G1577 of God G2316.
 But G1161 by the grace G5485 of God G2316 I am G1510 (PresInd) what G3739 I am G1510 (PresInd): and G2532 his G846 grace G5485 which [was bestowed] upon G1519 me G1691 was G1096 (AorPasDepInd) not G3756 in vain G2756; but G235 I laboured G2872 (AorActInd) more abundantly G4054 than they G846 all G3956: yet G1161 not G3756 I G1473, but G235 the grace G5485 of God G2316 which G3588 was with G4862 me G1698.
 Therefore G3767 whether G1535 [it were] I G1473 or G1535 they G1565, so G3779 we preach G2784 (PresActInd), and G2532 so G3779 ye believed G4100 (AorActInd).
 Now G1161 if G1487 Christ G5547 be preached G2784 (PresPasInd) that G3754 he rose G1453 (PerfPasInd) from G1537 the dead G3498, how G4459 say G3004 (PresActInd) some G5100 among G1722 you G5213 that G3754 there is G2076 (PresInd) no G3756 resurrection G386 of the dead G3498?
 But G1161 if G1487 there be G2076 (PresInd) no G3756 resurrection G386 of the dead G3498, then G3761 is G1453 Christ G5547 not G3761 risen G1453 (PerfPasInd):
 And G1161 if G1487 Christ G5547 be G1453 not G3756 risen G1453 (PerfPasInd), then G686 [is] our G2257 preaching G2782 vain G2756, and G2532 your G5216 faith G4102 [is] G1161 also G2532 vain G2756.
 Yea G1161, and G2532 we are found G2147 (PresPasInd) false witnesses G5575 of God G2316; because G3754 we have testified G3140 (AorActInd) of G2596 God G2316 that G3754 he raised up G1453 (AorActInd) Christ G5547: whom G3739 he raised G1453 not G3756 up G1453 (AorActInd), if G1512 so be G686 that the dead G3498 rise G1453 (PresPasInd) not G3756.
 For G1063 if G1487 the dead G3498 rise G1453 (PresPasInd) not G3756, then is G1453 not G3761 Christ G5547 raised G1453 (PerfPasInd):
 And G1161 if G1487 Christ G5547 be G1453 not G3756 raised G1453 (PerfPasInd), your G5216 faith G4102 [is] vain G3152; ye are G2075 (PresInd) yet G2089 in G1722 your G5216 sins G266.
 Then G686 they also G2532 which are fallen asleep G2837 (AorPasPtc) in G1722 Christ G5547 are perished G622 (Aor2MidInd).
 If G1487 in G1722 this G5026 life G2222 only G3440 we have hope G1679 (PerfActPtc) G2070 (PresInd) in G1722 Christ G5547, we are G2070 (PresInd) of all G3956 men G444 most miserable G1652.
 But G1161 now G3570 is G1453 Christ G5547 risen G1453 (PerfPasInd) from G1537 the dead G3498, [and] become G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) the firstfruits G536 of them that slept G2837 (PerfPasPtc).
 For G1063 since G1894 by G1223 man G444 [came] death G2288, by G1223 man G444 [came] also G2532 the resurrection G386 of the dead G3498.
 For G1063 as G5618 in G1722 Adam G76 all G3956 die G599 (PresActInd), even G2532 so G3779 in G1722 Christ G5547 shall G2227 all G3956 be made alive G2227 (FutPasInd).
 But G1161 every man G1538 in G1722 his own G2398 order G5001: Christ G5547 the firstfruits G536; afterward G1899 they that are G3588 Christ’s G5547 at G1722 his G846 coming G3952.
 Then G1534 [cometh] the end G5056, when G3752 he shall have delivered up G3860 (Aor2ActSubj) the kingdom G932 to God G2316, even G2532 the Father G3962; when G3752 he shall have put down G2673 (AorActSubj) all G3956 rule G746 and G2532 all G3956 authority G1849 and G2532 power G1411.
 For G1063 he G846 must G1163 (PresInd) reign G936 (PresActInf), till G891 G3739 he hath put G302 G5087 (Aor2ActSubj) all G3956 enemies G2190 under G5259 his G846 feet G4228.
 The last G2078 enemy G2190 [that] shall be destroyed G2673 (PresPasInd) [is] death G2288.
 For G1063 he hath put G5293 (AorActInd) all things G3956 under G5259 his G846 feet G4228. But G1161 when G3752 he saith G2036 (Aor2ActSubj) G3754 all things G3956 are put under G5293 (PerfPasInd) [him, it is] manifest G1212 that G3754 he is excepted G1622, which did put G5293 all things G3956 under G5293 (AorActPtc) him G846.
 And G1161 when G3752 all things G3956 shall be subdued G5293 (Aor2PasSubj) unto him G846, then G5119 shall G5293 the Son G5207 also G2532 himself G846 be subject G5293 (Fut2PasInd) unto him that put G5293 all things G3956 under G5293 (AorActPtc) him G846, that G2443 God G2316 may be G5600 (PresSubj) all G3956 in G1722 all G3956.
 Else G1893 what G5101 shall they do G4160 (FutActInd) which are baptized G907 (PresPasPtc) for G5228 the dead G3498, if G1487 the dead G3498 rise G1453 (PresPasInd) not G3756 at all G3654? why G5101 G2532 are they then baptized G907 (PresPasInd) for G5228 the dead G3498?
 And G2532 why G5101 stand G2793 we G2249 in jeopardy G2793 (PresActInd) every G3956 hour G5610?
 I protest by G3513 your G5212 rejoicing G2251 G2746 which G3739 I have G2192 (PresActInd) in G1722 Christ G5547 Jesus G2424 our G2257 Lord G2962, I die G599 (PresActInd) daily G2596 G2250.
 If G1487 after the manner G2596 of men G444 I have fought with beasts G2341 (AorActInd) at G1722 Ephesus G2181, what G5101 advantageth it G3786 me G3427, if G1487 the dead G3498 rise G1453 (PresPasInd) not G3756? let us eat G5315 (Aor2ActSubj) and G2532 drink G4095 (Aor2ActSubj); for G1063 to morrow G839 we die G599 (PresActInd).
 Be G4105 not G3361 deceived G4105 (PresPasImpr): evil G2556 communications G3657 corrupt G5351 (PresActInd) good G5543 manners G2239.
 Awake G1594 (AorActImpr) to righteousness G1346, and G2532 sin G264 (PresActImpr) not G3361; for G1063 some G5100 have G2192 (PresActInd) not the knowledge G56 of God G2316: I speak G3004 (PresActInd) [this] to G4314 your G5213 shame G1791.
 But G235 some G5100 [man] will say G2046 (FutActInd), How G4459 are G1453 the dead G3498 raised up G1453 (PresPasInd)? and G1161 with what G4169 body G4983 do they come G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd)?
 [Thou] fool G878, that which G3739 thou G4771 sowest G4687 (PresActInd) is G2227 not G3756 quickened G2227 (PresPasInd), except G3362 it die G599 (Aor2ActSubj):
 And G2532 that which G3739 thou sowest G4687 (PresActInd), thou sowest G4687 (PresActInd) not G3756 that body G4983 that shall be G1096 (FutMidDepPtc), but G235 bare G1131 grain G2848, it may chance G1487 G5177 (Aor2ActOpt) of wheat G4621, or G2228 of some G5100 other G3062 [grain]:
 But G1161 God G2316 giveth G1325 (PresActInd) it G846 a body G4983 as G2531 it hath pleased him G2309 (AorActInd), and G2532 to every G1538 seed G4690 his own G2398 body G4983.
 All G3956 flesh G4561 [is] not G3756 the same G846 flesh G4561: but G235 G3303 [there is] one G243 [kind of] flesh G4561 of men G444, G1161 another G243 flesh G4561 of beasts G2934, G1161 another G243 of fishes G2486, [and] G1161 another G243 of birds G4421.
 [There are] also G2532 celestial G2032 bodies G4983, and G2532 bodies G4983 terrestrial G1919: but G235 G3303 the glory G1391 of the celestial G2032 [is] one G2087, and G1161 the [glory] of the terrestrial G1919 [is] another G2087.
 [There is] one G243 glory G1391 of the sun G2246, and G2532 another G243 glory G1391 of the moon G4582, and G2532 another G243 glory G1391 of the stars G792: for G1063 [one] star G792 differeth from G1308 (PresActInd) [another] star G792 in G1722 glory G1391.
 So G3779 also G2532 [is] the resurrection G386 of the dead G3498. It is sown G4687 (PresPasInd) in G1722 corruption G5356; it is raised G1453 (PresPasInd) in G1722 incorruption G861:
 It is sown G4687 (PresPasInd) in G1722 dishonour G819; it is raised G1453 (PresPasInd) in G1722 glory G1391: it is sown G4687 (PresPasInd) in G1722 weakness G769; it is raised G1453 (PresPasInd) in G1722 power G1411:
 It is sown G4687 (PresPasInd) a natural G5591 body G4983; it is raised G1453 (PresPasInd) a spiritual G4152 body G4983. There is G2076 (PresInd) a natural G5591 body G4983, and G2532 there is G2076 (PresInd) a spiritual G4152 body G4983.
 And G2532 so G3779 it is written G1125 (PerfPasInd), The first G4413 man G444 Adam G76 was made G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) G1519 a living G2198 (PresActPtc) soul G5590; the last G2078 Adam G76 [was made] G1519 a quickening G2227 (PresActPtc) spirit G4151.
 Howbeit G235 that [was] not G3756 first G4412 which is spiritual G4152, but G235 that which is natural G5591; and afterward G1899 that which is spiritual G4152.
 The first G4413 man G444 [is] of G1537 the earth G1093, earthy G5517: the second G1208 man G444 [is] the Lord G2962 from G1537 heaven G3772.
 As G3634 [is] the earthy G5517, such G5108 [are] they also G2532 that are earthy G5517: and G2532 as [is] G3634 the heavenly G2032, such G5108 [are] they G2032 also G2532 that are heavenly G2032.
 And G2532 as G2531 we have borne G5409 (AorActInd) the image G1504 of the earthy G5517, we shall G5409 also G2532 bear G5409 (FutActInd) the image G1504 of the heavenly G2032.
 Now G1161 this G5124 I say G5346 (PresInd), brethren G80, that G3754 flesh G4561 and G2532 blood G129 cannot G3756 G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) inherit G2816 (AorActInf) the kingdom G932 of God G2316; neither G3761 doth G2816 corruption G5356 inherit G2816 (PresActInd) incorruption G861.
 Behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), I shew G3004 (PresActInd) you G5213 a mystery G3466; We shall G2837 not G3756 all G3956 G3303 sleep G2837 (FutPasInd), but G1161 we shall G236 all G3956 be changed G236 (Fut2PasInd),
 In G1722 a moment G823, in G1722 the twinkling G4493 of an eye G3788, at G1722 the last G2078 trump G4536: for G1063 the trumpet shall sound G4537 (FutActInd), and G2532 the dead G3498 shall be raised G1453 (FutPasInd) incorruptible G862, and G2532 we G2249 shall be changed G236 (Fut2PasInd).
 For G1063 this G5124 corruptible G5349 must G1163 (PresInd) put on G1746 (AorMidInf) incorruption G861, and G2532 this G5124 mortal G2349 [must] put on G1746 (AorMidInf) immortality G110.
 So G1161 when G3752 this G5124 corruptible G5349 shall have put on G1746 (AorMidSubj) incorruption G861, and G2532 this G5124 mortal G2349 shall have put on G1746 (AorMidSubj) immortality G110, then G5119 shall be brought to pass G1096 (FutMidDepInd) the saying G3056 that is written G1125 (PerfPasPtc), Death G2288 is swallowed up G2666 (AorPasInd) in G1519 victory G3534.
 O death G2288, where G4226 [is] thy G4675 sting G2759? O grave G86, where G4226 [is] thy G4675 victory G3534?
 G1161 The sting G2759 of death G2288 [is] sin G266; and G1161 the strength G1411 of sin G266 [is] the law G3551.
 But G1161 thanks G5485 [be] to God G2316, which G3588 giveth G1325 (PresActPtc) us G2254 the victory G3534 through G1223 our G2257 Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547.
 Therefore G5620, my G3450 beloved G27 brethren G80, be ye G1096 (PresMidPasDepImpr) stedfast G1476, unmoveable G277, always G3842 abounding G4052 (PresActPtc) in G1722 the work G2041 of the Lord G2962, forasmuch as ye know G1492 (PerfActPtc) that G3754 your G5216 labour G2873 is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 in vain G2756 in G1722 the Lord G2962.
Young’s Literal Translation
1 Corinthians 15 (YLT)
 And I make known to you, brethren, the good news that I proclaimed to you, which also ye did receive, in which also ye have stood,
 through which also ye are being saved, in what words I proclaimed good news to you, if ye hold fast, except ye did believe in vain,
 for I delivered to you first, what also I did receive, that Christ died for our sins, according to the Writings,
 and that he was buried, and that he hath risen on the third day, according to the Writings,
 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve,
 afterwards he appeared to above five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain till now, and certain also did fall asleep;
 afterwards he appeared to James, then to all the apostles.
 And last of all-as to the untimely birth-he appeared also to me,
 for I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I did persecute the assembly of God,
 and by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace that is towards me came not in vain, but more abundantly than they all did I labour, yet not I, but the grace of God that is with me;
 whether, then, I or they, so we preach, and so ye did believe.
 And if Christ is preached, that out of the dead he hath risen, how say certain among you, that there is no rising again of dead persons?
 and if there be no rising again of dead persons, neither hath Christ risen;
 and if Christ hath not risen, then void is our preaching, and void also your faith,
 and we also are found false witnesses of God, because we did testify of God that He raised up the Christ, whom He did not raise if then dead persons do not rise;
 for if dead persons do not rise, neither hath Christ risen,
 and if Christ hath not risen, vain is your faith, ye are yet in your sins;
 then, also, those having fallen asleep in Christ did perish;
 if in this life we have hope in Christ only, of all men we are most to be pitied.
 And now, Christ hath risen out of the dead-the first-fruits of those sleeping he became,
 for since through man is the death, also through man is a rising again of the dead,
 for even as in Adam all die, so also in the Christ all shall be made alive,
 and each in his proper order, a first-fruit Christ, afterwards those who are the Christ’s, in his presence,
 then-the end, when he may deliver up the reign to God, even the Father, when he may have made useless all rule, and all authority and power-
 for it behoveth him to reign till he may have put all the enemies under his feet-
 the last enemy is done away-death;
 for all things He did put under his feet, and, when one may say that all things have been subjected, it is evident that He is excepted who did subject the all things to him,
 and when the all things may be subjected to him, then the Son also himself shall be subject to Him, who did subject to him the all things, that God may be the all in all.
 Seeing what shall they do who are baptized for the dead, if the dead do not rise at all? why also are they baptized for the dead?
 why also do we stand in peril every hour?
 Every day do I die, by the glorying of you that I have in Christ Jesus our Lord:
 if after the manner of a man with wild beasts I fought in Ephesus, what the advantage to me if the dead do not rise? let us eat and drink, for to-morrow we die!
 Be not led astray; evil communications corrupt good manners;
 awake up, as is right, and sin not; for certain have an ignorance of God; for shame to you I say it.
 But some one will say, ‘How do the dead rise?
 unwise! thou-what thou dost sow is not quickened except it may die;
 and that which thou dost sow, not the body that shall be dost thou sow, but bare grain, it may be of wheat, or of some one of the others,
 and God doth give to it a body according as He willed, and to each of the seeds its proper body.
 All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another of fishes, and another of birds;
 and there are heavenly bodies, and earthly bodies; but one is the glory of the heavenly, and another that of the earthly;
 one glory of sun, and another glory of moon, and another glory of stars, for star from star doth differ in glory.
 So also is the rising again of the dead: it is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption;
 it is sown in dishonour, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;
 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body; there is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body;
 so also it hath been written, ‘The first man Adam became a living creature,’ the last Adam is for a life-giving spirit,
 but that which is spiritual is not first, but that which was natural, afterwards that which is spiritual.
 The first man is out of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord out of heaven;
 as is the earthy, such are also the earthy; and as is the heavenly, such are also the heavenly;
 and, according as we did bear the image of the earthy, we shall bear also the image of the heavenly.
 And this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood the reign of God is not able to inherit, nor doth the corruption inherit the incorruption;
 lo, I tell you a secret; we indeed shall not all sleep, and we all shall be changed;
 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, in the last trumpet, for it shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we-we shall be changed:
 for it behoveth this corruptible to put on incorruption, and this mortal to put on immortality;
 and when this corruptible may have put on incorruption, and this mortal may have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the word that hath been written, ‘The Death was swallowed up-to victory;
 where, O Death, thy sting? where, O Hades, thy victory?’
 and the sting of the death is the sin, and the power of the sin the law;
 and to God-thanks, to Him who is giving us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ;
 so that, my brethren beloved, become ye stedfast, unmovable, abounding in the work of the Lord at all times, knowing that your labour is not vain in the Lord.
