“O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”
King James Version (KJV)
15:55 O death, where is thy sting? - Which once was full of hellish poison. O hades, the receptacle of separate souls, where is thy victory - Thou art now robbed of all thy spoils; all thy captives are set at liberty. Hades literally means the invisible world, and relates to the soul; death, to the body. The Greek words are found in the Septuagint translation of #Hosea 13:14|. #Isaiah 25:8|
1Co 15:55 O death, where [is] thy sting? This is quoted from Ho 13:14. It is here the triumphant shout of the apostle as he sees by faith the final victory over death.
