But God gives it a body as it pleased him, and to every seed his own body. All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial (heavenly) bodies and terrestrial (earthly) bodies. The glory of the celestial is one thing and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars. For one star differs from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption. It is raised in incorruption. It is sown in dishonor. It is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness and it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body and it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body and there is a spiritual body. Thus it is written: The first man Adam was made a living being. The last Adam became a life giving spirit! How is it the first is not spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is from the earth, earthy: the second man is from heaven. As is the earthy so are those who are of the earth. And as is the heavenly, so are those who are of heaven. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
