49 And (A)as we have borne the image of the man of dust, (B)we[a] shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.

Our Final Victory

50 Now this I say, brethren, that (C)flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I tell you a [b]mystery: (D)We shall not all sleep, (E)but we shall all be changed— 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. (F)For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and (G)this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: (H)“Death is swallowed up in victory.”

55 “O(I)[c] Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?”
