I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches.
Psalm 119:14 (NIV)
Listen! I am telling you a mystery:
We will not all fall asleep,
but we will all be changed,
in a moment,
in the blink of an eye,
at the last trumpet.
For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed. For this corruptible must be clothed with incorruptibility, and this mortal must be clothed with immortality.
When this corruptible is clothed with incorruptibility, and this mortal is clothed with immortality, then the saying that is written will take place:
Death has been swallowed up in victory.
Death, where is your victory?
Death, where is your sting?
Now the sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!
Therefore, my dear brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work, knowing that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:51-58 (HCSB)
Be gracious to me, God, according to Your faithful love; according to Your abundant compassion, blot out my rebellion.
Psalms 51:1 (HCSB)
