Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:55

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|

One of the most moving and triumphant statements in the King 's English or for that matter in any other language.

Paul triumphantly declared that death would be swallowed up forever. 1 Corinthians 15 54 57 When the corruptible and mortal put on incorruption and immortality, these words will be fulfilled Death is swallowed up forever. Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting? Isaiah 25 8 Hosea 13 14 The sting producing death is sin, and sin s strength was the Law, which condemned sinners to death. But because of Jesus sacrifice and resurrection, death inherited from sinful Adam will no longer be victorious. Romans 5 12 6 23.
