Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 15:52

_ _ the last trump — at the sounding of the trumpet on the last day [Vatablus] (Matthew 24:31; 1 Thessalonians 4:16). Or the Spirit by Paul hints that the other trumpets mentioned subsequently in the Apocalypse shall precede, and that this shall be the last of all (compare Isaiah 27:13; Zechariah 9:14). As the law was given with the sound of a trumpet, so the final judgment according to it (Hebrews 12:19; compare Exodus 19:16). As the Lord ascended “with the sound of a trumpet” (Psalms 47:5), so He shall descend (Revelation 11:15). The trumpet was sounded to convoke the people on solemn feasts, especially on the first day of the seventh month (the type of the completion of time; seven being the number for perfection; on the tenth of the same month was the atonement, and on the fifteenth the feast of tabernacles, commemorative of completed salvation out of the spiritual Egypt, compare Zechariah 14:18, Zechariah 14:19); compare Psalms 50:1-7. Compare His calling forth of Lazarus from the grave “with a loud voice,” John 11:43, with John 5:25, John 5:28.

_ _ and — immediately, in consequence.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 15:52

In a moment — Amazing work of omnipotence! And cannot the same power now change us into saints in a moment? The trumpet shall sound — To awaken all that sleep in the dust of the earth.
