EPISTLE. I Cor. xv. 51. 57.-Brethren: Bebold I tell you a mystery: We shall indeed all rise again : but we shall not all be changed. In a moment in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet : for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall rise again incorruptible: and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption; and this mortal must put on immortality. And when this mortal hath put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: Death is swallowed up in victory. O grave, where is thy victory o death where is thy sting Now the sting of death' is nin,

and the strength of sim is the law. But thanks be to God who hath given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

At that time: Jesus said to the multitude of the Jews : Amen, amen I say unto you, that the hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself; so he hath given to the Son also to have life in himself: and he hath given him power to do jutlment, because he is the Son of Man. Wonder not at this, for the hour cometh wherein all that are in the graves shall hear the voice of the Son of God. And they that have done good things shall come forth unto the resurrection of life: but they that have love evil, wto the resurrection of judgment.
