1 Moreover, brethren, I unto you the adeclare which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; bgospel
2 By which also ye are , if ye asaved what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. bkeep in memory
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ for our adied according to the scriptures; bsins
4 And that he was buried, and that he again the third day according to the scriptures: arose
5 And that he was of aseen , then of the twelve: bCephas
6 After that, he was of aseen five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. babove
7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
8 And last of all he was of me also, as of one born out of due time. aseen
9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not to be called an ameet apostle, because I the church of God. bpersecuted
10 But by the of God I am what I am: and his grace which agrace was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. blaboured
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 of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. atestified
16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is ; ye are yet in your sins. avain
18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are . aperished

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 : adie
37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, of wheat, or of some other ait may chance 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 also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the are aThere bcelestial is one, and the glory of the cterrestrial is another.
41 There is one glory of the , and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the asun : for bstars one star from cdiffereth another star in . dglory
42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in ; it is raised in incorruption: acorruption
43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in : it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: aglory
44 It is sown a body; it is raised a anatural . There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. bspiritual body
45 And so it is written, The man afirst was made a living soul; the last bAdam cAdam was made a spirit. dquickening
46 Howbeit that was not which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. afirst
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 and aflesh cannot bblood the kingdom of God; neither doth cinherit inherit incorruption. dcorruption
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all , but we shall all be asleep , bchanged
52 In a moment, in the of an eye, at the last trump: for the atwinkling shall sound, and the btrumpet shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be cdead . dchanged
53 For this must put on incorruption, and this acorruptible bmortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on , then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, aimmortality is swallowed up in victory. bDeath
55 O , where adeath is thy sting? O , where bgrave is thy victory?
56 The sting of adeath is sin; and the of sin bstrength is the law.

58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye , unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. asteadfast
