1 Corinthians 15:53

1 Corinthians 15:53

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

a. NLT: For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.

b. NIV: For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.

c. YLT: for it behoveth this corruptible to put on incorruption, and this mortal to put on immortality;

d. Amplified Bible Classic:  For this perishable [part of us] must put on the imperishable [nature], and this mortal [part of us, this nature that is capable of dying] must put on immortality (freedom from death).

e. Worrell Translation: For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and tis mortal must put on immortality.

1. “For this corruptible must put on incorruption…”

a. For [1063 * gar] [Strong: a primary particle; properly, assigning a reason (used in argument, explanation or intensification; often with other particles):--and, as, because (that), but, even, for, indeed, no doubt, seeing, then, therefore, verily, what, why, yet.]

b. this [5124 * touto] [Strong: neuter singular nominative or accusative case of 3778; that thing:--here (-unto), it, partly, self(-same), so, that (intent), the same, there(-fore, -unto), this, thus, where(-fore).]

c. corruptible [5349 * phthartos] [Strong: from 5351; decayed, i.e. (by implication) perishable:--corruptible.]

d. must [1163 * die] [Strong: 3d person singular active present of 1210; also deon deh-on'; neuter active participle of the same; both used impersonally; it is (was, etc.) necessary (as binding):--behoved, be meet, must (needs), (be) need(-ful), ought, should.]

e. put on [1746 * enduo] [Strong: from 1722 and 1416 (in the sense of sinking into a garment); to invest with clothing (literally or figuratively):--array, clothe (with), endue, have (put) on.]

f. incorruption [861 * aphthrsia] [Strong: from 862; incorruptibility; genitive, unending existence; (figuratively) genuineness:--immortality, incorruption, sincerity.]

2. “…and this mortal must put on immortality.”

a. and [2532 * kai] [Strong:  apparently, a primary particle, having a copulative and sometimes also a cumulative force; and, also, even, so then, too, etc.; often used in connection (or composition) with other particles or small words:--and, also, both, but, even, for, if, or, so, that, then, therefore, when, yet.]
b. this [5124 * touto] [Strong: neuter singular nominative or accusative case of 3778; that thing:--here (-unto), it, partly, self(-same), so, that (intent), the same, there(-fore, -unto), this, thus, where(-fore).]

c. mortal [2349 * thnetos] [Strong: from 2348; liable to die:--mortal(-ity).]

d. must put on [1746 * enduo] [Strong: from 1722 and 1416 (in the sense of sinking into a garment); to invest with clothing (literally or figuratively):--array, clothe (with), endue, have (put) on.]

e. immortality [110 * athanasia] [Strong: from a compound of 1 (as a negative particle) and 2288; deathlessness:--immortality.]

1). The putting on of incorruption and the putting on of immortality is of course receiving a glorified body.

a). Philippians 3:20, 21 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
3:21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

b). 1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
