“Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.”
King James Version (KJV)
5:10 Whether we wake or sleep - Be alive or dead at his coming.
1Th 5:10 Who died for us. That we might secure salvation. Hence our salvation is so assured that even death cannot rob us of it. Whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Whether we are alive, or sleep in death, we shall live together with Christ.
