哥林多前書  I Corinthians  15:50~58
中文聖經版本:新標點和合本/English Bible Version:NIV (New International Version)

50弟兄們,我告訴你們說,血肉之體不能承受 神的國,必朽壞的不能承受不朽壞的。51我如今把一件奧秘的事告訴你們:我們不是都要睡覺,乃是都要改變。52就在一霎時、眨眼之間,號筒末次吹響的時候。因號筒要響,死人要復活成為不朽壞的,我們也要改變。53這必朽壞的總要變成(變成:原文是穿;下同)不朽壞的,這必死的總要變成不死的。54這必朽壞的既變成不朽壞的,這必死的既變成不死的,那時經上所記「死被得勝吞滅」的話就應驗了。55死啊!你得勝的權勢在哪裡?死啊!你的毒鈎在哪裡?56死的毒鈎就是罪,罪的權勢就是律法。57感謝 神,使我們藉著我們的主耶穌基督得勝。58所以,我親愛的弟兄們,你們務要堅固,不可搖動,常常竭力多做主工;因為知道,你們的勞苦在主裡面不是徒然的。

50I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.  51Listen, I tell you a mystery:  We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed - 52in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.  For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.  53For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.  54When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory."  55"Where, O death, is your victory?  Where, O death, is your sting?"  56The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.  57But thanks be to God!  He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  58Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm.  Let nothing move you.  Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
