41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory.

42 (A)So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown [a](B)a perishable body, it is raised [b](C)an imperishable body; 43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in (D)glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; 44 it is sown a (E)natural body, it is raised a (F)spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So also it is written, “The first (G)man, Adam, became a living soul.” The (H)last Adam became a (I)life-giving spirit. 46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual. 47 The first man is (J)from the earth, [c](K)earthy; the second man is from heaven. 48 As is the earthy, so also are those who are earthy; and as is the heavenly, (L)so also are those who are heavenly. 49 Just as we have (M)borne the image of the earthy, [d]we (N)will also bear the image of the heavenly.
