1 Corinthians 15:49 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

49 Just as we have borne the image of the earthly one, we shall also bear the image[a] of the heavenly one.

Footnotes:

  1. 15:49 We shall also bear the image: although it has less manuscript support, this reading better fits the context’s emphasis on futurity and the transforming action of God; on future transformation as conformity to the image of the Son, cf. Rom 8:29; Phil 3:21. The majority reading, “let us bear the image,” suggests that the image of the heavenly man is already present and exhorts us to conform to it.
