  A reading from the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians        Chapter 15: Verses 51-57  

 

Death is swallowed up in victory.

 

Behold, I tell you a mystery.  We shall not all fall asleep, but we will all be changed, in an instant, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet.  For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.  For that which is corruptible must clothe itself with incorruptibility, and that which is mortal must clothe itself with immortality.  And when that which is corruptible clothes itself with incorruptibility and that which is mortal clothes itself with immortality, then the word that is written shall come about:

 

“Death is swallowed up in victory.

Where, O death, is your victory?

Where, O death, is your sting?”

 

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.

 

This is the Word of the Lord
