15:1 Moreover, brothers, I declare to you* the gospel which I preached to you*, which also you* have received, and in which you* stand; 1st Corinthians
15:2 By which you* are also saved, if you* keep in memory what I preached to you*, unless you* have believed in vain.
15:3 For I delivered to you* first of all, that which I also received, that the Messiah died for our sins, according to the scriptures; 1st Corinthians
15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 1st Corinthians
15:5 And that he was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve: 1st Corinthians
15:6 After that he was seen by above five hundred brothers at once; of whom the greater part remain to this present, but some have fallen asleep. 1st Corinthians
15:7 After that he was seen by James; then by all the apostles. 1st Corinthians
15:8 And last of all he was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time. 1st Corinthians
15:9 For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the assembly of Elohim. 1st Corinthians
15:10 But by the grace of Elohim I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me, was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than all of them: yet not I, but the grace of Elohim which was with me. 1st Corinthians
15:11 Therefore whether it was I or they, so we preach, and so you* believed.
15:12 Now if the Messiah is preached that he rose from the dead, how do some among you* say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 1st Corinthians
15:13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then the Messiah has not been raised. 1st Corinthians
15:14 And if the Messiah has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, and your* faith is also vain. 1st Corinthians
15:15 And indeed we are found false witnesses of Elohim; because we have testified concerning Elohim that he raised up the Messiah: whom he did not raise, if in truth the dead do not rise. 1st Corinthians
15:16 For if the dead do not rise, then the Messiah has not been raised: 1st Corinthians
15:17 And if the Messiah has not been raised, your* faith is vain; you* are yet in your* sins. 1st Corinthians
15:18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in the Messiah have perished. 1st Corinthians
15:19 If in this life only we have hope in the Messiah, we are of all men most miserable.
15:20 But now the Messiah has been raised from the dead, and become the first-fruits of those who slept. 1st Corinthians
15:21 For since death came by man, the resurrection of the dead also came by man. 1st Corinthians
15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in the Messiah all shall be made alive. 1st Corinthians
15:23 But every man in his own order: the Messiah the first-fruits; afterward those who are the Messiah's at his coming. 1st Corinthians
15:24 Then the end comes, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to Elohim, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule, and all authority, and power. 1st Corinthians
15:25 For he must reign, till he has put all enemies under his feet. 1st Corinthians
15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 1st Corinthians
15:27 For he has put all things under his feet. But when he says, All things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted who put all things under him. 1st Corinthians
15:28 And when all things shall be subdued to him, then the Son himself shall also be subject to him who put all things under him, so that Elohim may be all in all.
15:29 Or else what will those do, who are baptized for the dead, if the dead do not rise at all? why are they then baptized for the dead? 1st Corinthians
15:30 And why do we stand in jeopardy every hour? 1st Corinthians
15:31 I protest by your* rejoicing which I have in the Messiah YASHUWAH our Master, I die daily. 1st Corinthians
15:32 If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantage is it to me, if the dead do not rise? let us eat and drink; for tomorrow we die. 1st Corinthians
15:33 Do not be deceived: Evil communications corrupt good manners. 1st Corinthians
15:34 Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of Elohim. I speak this to your* shame.
15:35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised? and with what body do they come? 1st Corinthians
15:36 You fool, that which you sowest is not vivified unless it dies: 1st Corinthians
15:37 And that which you sowest, you do not sow that body that shall be, but bare grain; it may be of wheat, or of some other grain: 1st Corinthians
15:38 But Elohim gives it a body as it has pleased him, and to every seed its own body. 1st Corinthians
15:39 All flesh is not the same flesh; but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fish, and another of birds. 1st Corinthians
15:40 There are also celestial bodies, and terrestrial bodies: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. 1st Corinthians
15:41 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.
15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption; 1st Corinthians
15:43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; 1st Corinthians
15:44 It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 1st Corinthians
15:45 And so it is written, The first man, Adam, was made a living soul, the last Adam was made a vivifying spirit. 1st Corinthians
15:46 However, that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 1st Corinthians
15:47 The first man is from the earth, earthy: the second man is the Master from heaven. 1st Corinthians
15:48 As is the earthy, such are those also who are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are those also who are heavenly. 1st Corinthians
15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
15:50 Now this I say, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of Elohim; neither does corruption inherit incorruption. 1st Corinthians
15:51 Behold, I show you* a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 1st Corinthians
15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1st Corinthians
15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 1st Corinthians
15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then the saying that is written shall be brought to pass, Death is swallowed up in victory. 1st Corinthians
15:55 O death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory? 1st Corinthians
15:56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 1st Corinthians
15:57 But thanks be to Elohim, who gives us the victory, through our Master YASHUWAH the Messiah.
15:58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of YHWH, because you* know that your* labor is not in vain in YHWH.
