4:17Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?

4:18Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly:

4:19How much less in them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust, which are crushed before the moth?

4:21Doth not their excellency which is in them go away? they die, even without wisdom.

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

16:10For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

16:11Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

21:4He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.

22:26The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.

23:6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

31:5Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.

36:9For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

37:18The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.

37:27Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

49:7None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:

49:8(For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)

49:9That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.

49:14Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.

49:15But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.

73:26My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

102:25Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.

102:26They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:

102:27But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

102:28The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.

121:8The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

133:3As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

145:1I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.

145:2Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

14:32The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death.

Ecclesiastes (Author Solomon)

3:21Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?

12:7Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

14:9Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

25:8He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.

26:19Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

38:18For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.

38:19The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known thy truth.

Ezekiel (Author Ezekiel)

32:31Pharaoh shall see them, and shall be comforted over all his multitude, even Pharaoh and all his army slain by the sword, saith the Lord GOD.

Daniel (Author Daniel)

12:2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

12:3And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Matthew (Author Matthew)

10:28And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

16:26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

19:16And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

19:17And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

25:46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Mark (Author John Mark)

10:30But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

12:26And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?

12:27He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.

Luke (Author Luke)

9:25For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

10:25And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

10:26He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

10:27And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

10:28And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

20:36Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.

20:37Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.

20:38For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.

John (Author John)

3:14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

3:15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

3:16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

3:36He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

5:39Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

5:40And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

6:39And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

6:40And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

6:44No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

6:47Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

6:50This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.

6:51I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

6:53Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

6:54Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

6:58This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

10:28And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

11:25Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

11:26And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

14:19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

17:2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

17:3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Acts (Author Luke)

20:32And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

23:8For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both.

23:9And there arose a great cry: and the scribes that were of the Pharisees' part arose, and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel hath spoken to him, let us not fight against God.

26:7Unto which promise our twelve tribes, instantly serving God day and night, hope to come. For which hope's sake, king Agrippa, I am accused of the Jews.

26:8Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?

26:18To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

Romans (Author Paul)

2:7To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

6:22But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

6:23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Corinthians (Author Paul)

15:12Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?

15:13But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:

15:14And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

15:15Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.

15:16For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:

15:17And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.

15:18Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.

15:19If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

15:20But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

15:21For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

15:22For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

15:23But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.

15:24Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

15:25For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

15:26The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

15:27For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

15:28And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

15:29Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?

15:30And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?

15:31I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

15:32If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.

15:33Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

15:34Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.

15:35But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?

15:36Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:

15:37And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:

15:38But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.

15:39All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

15:40There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

15:41There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.

15:42So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

15:43It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

15:44It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

15:45And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

15:46Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

15:47The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

15:48As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

15:49And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

15:50Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

15:51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

15:52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

15:53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

15:54So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

15:55O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

Galatians (Author Paul)

6:8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Colossians (Author Paul)

1:5For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;

1:6Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:

1 Thessalonians (Author Paul)

4:13But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

4:14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

4:15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

4:16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

4:17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

4:18Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

5:10Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

2 Thessalonians (Author Paul)

1:7And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

1:8In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

1:9Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

2:16Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,

1 Timothy (Author Paul)

4:8For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

6:12Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

6:19Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

2 Timothy (Author Paul)

1:9Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

1:10But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

Titus (Author Paul)

1:2In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

3:7That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Hebrews (Author Paul)

9:15And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

10:34For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.

11:5By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

11:10For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

11:13These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

11:14For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.

11:15And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.

11:16But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

1 Peter (Author Peter)

1:3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

1:4To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,

1:5Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

1 John (Author John)

2:17And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

2:25And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.

5:13These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

Jude (Author Jude)

1:21Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Revelation (Author John)

1:7Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

3:4Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

22:5And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
