046:015:001
Moreover,
brethren,
I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you,
which also ye have received,
and wherein ye stand;


046:015:002
By which also ye are saved,
if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you,
unless ye have believed in vain.


046:015:003
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received,
how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;


046:015:004
And that he was buried,
and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:


046:015:005
And that he was seen of Cephas,
then of the twelve:


046:015:006
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.


046:015:007
After that,
he was seen of James;
then of all the apostles.


046:015:008
And last of all he was seen of me also,
as of one born out of due time.


046:015:009
For I am the least of the apostles,
that am not meet to be called an apostle,
because I persecuted the church of God.


046:015:010
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.


046:015:011
Therefore whether it were I or they,
so we preach,
and so ye believed.


046:015:012
Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead,
how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?


046:015:013
But if there be no resurrection of the dead,
then is Christ not risen:


046:015:014
And if Christ be not risen,
then is our preaching vain,
and your faith is also vain.


046:015:015
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.


046:015:016
For if the dead rise not,
then is not Christ raised:


046:015:017
And if Christ be not raised,
your faith is vain;
ye are yet in your sins.


046:015:018
Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.


046:015:019
If in this life only we have hope in Christ,
we are of all men most miserable.


046:015:020
But now is Christ risen from the dead,
and become the firstfruits of them that slept.


046:015:021
For since by man came death,
by man came also the resurrection of the dead.


046:015:022
For as in Adam all die,
even so in Christ shall all be made alive.


046:015:023
But every man in his own order:
Christ the firstfruits;
afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.


046:015:024
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.


046:015:025
For he must reign,
till he hath put all enemies under his feet.


046:015:026
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.


046:015:027
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.


046:015:028
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.


046:015:029
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?


046:015:030
And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?


046:015:031
I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord,
I die daily.


046:015:032
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.


046:015:033
Be not deceived:
evil communications corrupt good manners.


046:015:034
Awake to righteousness,
and sin not;
for some have not the knowledge of God:
I speak this to your shame.


046:015:035
But some man will say,
How are the dead raised up?
and with what body do they come?


046:015:036
Thou fool,
that which thou sowest is not quickened,
except it die:


046:015:037
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:


046:015:038
But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him,
and to every seed his own body.


046:015:039
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.


046:015:040
There are also celestial bodies,
and bodies terrestrial:
but the glory of the celestial is one,
and the glory of the terrestrial is another.


046:015:041
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.


046:015:042
So also is the resurrection of the dead.
It is sown in corruption;
it is raised in incorruption:


046:015:043
It is sown in dishonour;
it is raised in glory:
it is sown in weakness;
it is raised in power:


046:015:044
It is sown a natural body;
it is raised a spiritual body.
There is a natural body,
and there is a spiritual body.


046:015:045
And so it is written,
The first man Adam was made a living soul;
the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.


046:015:046
Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual,
but that which is natural;
and afterward that which is spiritual.


046:015:047
The first man is of the earth,
earthy;
the second man is the Lord from heaven.


046:015:048
As is the earthy,
such are they also that are earthy:
and as is the heavenly,
such are they also that are heavenly.


046:015:049
And as we have borne the image of the earthy,
we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.


046:015:050
Now this I say,
brethren,
that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God;
neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.


046:015:051
Behold,
I shew you a mystery;
We shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed,


046:015:052
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.


046:015:053
For this corruptible must put on incorruption,
and this mortal must put on immortality.


046:015:054
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 victory.


046:015:055
O death,
where is thy sting?
O grave,
where is thy victory?


046:015:056
The sting of death is sin;
and the strength of sin is the law.


046:015:057
But thanks be to God,
which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.


046:015:058
Therefore,
my beloved brethren,
be ye stedfast,
unmoveable,
always abounding in the work of the Lord,
forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
