1 Corinthians 15:51-57

NEW TESTAMENT (Second Reading)

A Reading from the First Letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians


Brothers and Sisters:

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 this which is corruptible 

     clothes itself with incorruptibility 

     and this 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.


The Word of the Lord
