he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live;
and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
I know that my Redeemer liveth,
and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth;
and though this body be destroyed, yet shall I see God;
whom I shall see for myself and mine eyes shall behold,
and not as a stranger.
For none of us liveth to himself,
and no man dieth to himself.
For if we live, we live unto the Lord.
and if we die, we die unto the Lord.
Whether we live, therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.
Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord;
even so saith the Spirit, for they rest from their labors.
- On this mountain the LORD of hosts will make for all peoples
- a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wines,
- of rich food filled with marrow, of well-aged wines strained clear.
- And he will destroy on this mountain
- the shroud that is cast over all peoples,
- the sheet that is spread over all nations;
- he will swallow up death forever.
- Then the Lord GOD will wipe away the tears from all faces,
- and the disgrace of his people he will take away from all the earth,
- for the LORD has spoken.
- It will be said on that day,
- Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, so that he might save us.
- This is the LORD for whom we have waited;
- let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
Knowing that You wipe away the sin and sorrow of his heart and ours.
