1 Corinthians 15:42

_ _ sown — Following up the image of seed. A delightful word instead of burial.

_ _ in corruptionliable to corruption: corruptible: not merely a prey when dead to corruption; as the contrast shows, “raised in incorruption,” that is, not liable to corruption: incorruptible.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 15:35-50.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 15:42

So also is the resurrection of the dead — So great is the difference between the body which fell, and that which rises. It is sown — A beautiful word; committed, as seed, to the ground. In corruption — Just ready to putrefy, and, by various degrees of corruption and decay, to return to the dust from whence it came. It is raised in incorruption — Utterly incapable of either dissolution or decay.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 15:42

(23) So also [is] the resurrection of the dead. It is (s) sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

(23) He makes three manner of qualities of the bodies being raised: first, incorruption, that is, because they will be sound and altogether of a nature that can not be corrupt. Second, glory, because they will be adorned with beauty and honour. Third, power, because they will continue everlasting, without food, drink, and all other helps, without which this frail life cannot keep itself from corruption.

(s) Is buried, and man is hid as seed in the ground.
