1 Corinthians 15:12-19 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Risen Christ, Our Hope

12 Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. 14 And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. 15 Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up—if in fact the dead do not rise. 16 For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. 17 And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! 18 Then also those who have [a]fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.

ΠΡΟΣ ΚΟΡΙΝΘΙΟΥΣ Α΄ 15:12-19 1894 Scrivener New Testament (TR1894)

12 ει δε χριστος κηρυσσεται οτι εκ νεκρων εγηγερται πως λεγουσιν τινες εν υμιν οτι αναστασις νεκρων ουκ εστιν

13 ει δε αναστασις νεκρων ουκ εστιν ουδε χριστος εγηγερται

14 ει δε χριστος ουκ εγηγερται κενον αρα το κηρυγμα ημων κενη δε και η πιστις υμων

15 ευρισκομεθα δε και ψευδομαρτυρες του θεου οτι εμαρτυρησαμεν κατα του θεου οτι ηγειρεν τον χριστον ον ουκ ηγειρεν ειπερ αρα νεκροι ουκ εγειρονται

16 ει γαρ νεκροι ουκ εγειρονται ουδε χριστος εγηγερται

17 ει δε χριστος ουκ εγηγερται ματαια η πιστις υμων ετι εστε εν ταις αμαρτιαις υμων

18 αρα και οι κοιμηθεντες εν χριστω απωλοντο

19 ει εν τη ζωη ταυτη ηλπικοτες εσμεν εν χριστω μονον ελεεινοτεροι παντων ανθρωπων εσμεν

1 Corinthians 15:12-19 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

12 And if Christ is preached, that out of the dead he hath risen, how say certain among you, that there is no rising again of dead persons?

13 and if there be no rising again of dead persons, neither hath Christ risen;

14 and if Christ hath not risen, then void [is] our preaching, and void also your faith,

15 and we also are found false witnesses of God, because we did testify of God that He raised up the Christ, whom He did not raise if then dead persons do not rise;

16 for if dead persons do not rise, neither hath Christ risen,

17 and if Christ hath not risen, vain is your faith, ye are yet in your sins;

18 then, also, those having fallen asleep in Christ did perish;

19 if in this life we have hope in Christ only, of all men we are most to be pitied.

1 Corinthians 15:12-19 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

12 Now if Christ is preached, that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised; 14 and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain. 15 Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified [a]against God that He raised [b]Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised; 17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied.
