1 Corinthians (Author Paul)

3:21Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;

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?

5:1For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

5:4For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

5:8We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

1:21For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

1:23For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:

1:24Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.

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.
