    And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:

    World English Bible

    That which you sow, you don't sow the
    body that will be, but a bare grain, maybe of wheat, or of some other kind.

    Douay-Rheims - 1 Corinthians 15:37

    And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not the
    body that shall be; but bare grain, as of wheat, or of some of the rest.

    VERSE (37) -
    :37

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:37

    Y lo que siembras, no siembras el cuerpo que ha de salir, sino el grano desnudo, acaso de trigo, o de otro grano;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 15:37

    Verse 37. Thou sowest not that
    body that shall be] This is decomposed, and becomes the means of nourishing the whole plant, roots, stalk, leaves, ear, and full corn in the ear.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 37. And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that
    body that shall be , etc.] The sower, for instance, does not take a stalk of wheat in its blade, and ear, and full corn in the ear, encompassed with the husk, and sow it in the earth, which is the body or form in which it appears when it rises up again, and is come to its full growth: but bare grain (or naked grain) it may chance of wheat, or some other grain ; wheat, or any other grain, is cast into the earth naked, beat out of the husk; and that selfsame grain rises up again, clothed with additional verdure, beauty, and fruitfulness; and so the body which comes out of its mothers womb naked, and returns naked again, ( Job 1:21) to which the apostle seems to allude, will rise again the same body, though with additional glories and excellencies; so that if it should be asked, how is it possible that a dead body can be raised up again? the possibility of it may be seen, in the quickening and raising up of a grain of wheat, that first rots and dies; and if it be inquired with what body the dead will be raised, it may in some measure be observed in this instance, that though it will be the same body, yet with different and excelling qualities: this simile seems to have been much in use among the Jews, to illustrate this doctrine, and we have some traces of it still in their writings f328 : Cleopatra the queen asked R. Meir, saying, I know that the dead shall live, for it is written, they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth, ( Psalm 72:16) but when they rise, shall they rise naked, or shall they rise in their clothes? to which he replied, much more than wheat: for as wheat is buried, hmwr[ , naked, it comes forth, (or springs up,) with many clothings; and how much more the righteous, who are buried in their clothes? and again f329 , says R. Eliezer, all the dead shall stand in the resurrection of the dead, and shall rise with their garments on; from whence do you learn this? from the seed of the earth, especially from wheat; for as wheat is buried naked, and comes forth with many clothings, much more the righteous, who are buried in their clothes. Ver. 38. But God giveth it a body, as it hath pleased him , etc.] It is not the husbandman, nor the sun, nor the rain, that give the grain of wheat, or any other, its verdure and beauty, the form in which it springs up, its stalk, blade, and ear, but God by his own power, and of his sovereign will and pleasure; and he does not create this new form, but gives it; and does not barely give it, but gives the body to it: to the selfsame grain, and not another: so the resurrection of the dead is Gods work; it is an instance of his power, and of his sovereign will; and is to his people a branch of that eternal life, which is his pure gift through Jesus Christ; all that glory in which the body will arise springs from his free grace, and is bestowed upon the selfsame body, which was carried about here, and laid in the grave: and to every seed its own body ; which is suitable and natural to it, according to its kind; (see Genesis 1:11) as cummin to cummin, anise to anise, wheat to wheat, barley to barley, and not on the contrary; showing, that it is the same body that is raised that dies, though it is in a more glorious, and with more excellent qualities; which is manifest from express passages of Scripture; (see Job 19:26,27 1 Corinthians 15:42-44,53,54) from the signification of the word resurrection, which is a raising up of that which is fallen and if the same body that falls by death is not raised, but another is given, it will not be a resurrection, but a creation: and also from the figurative phrases by which it is expressed, as here by the quickening of seed cast into the earth, and elsewhere by awaking out of sleep; now as it is the same seed that is sown that springs up again, and the same body that sleeps that awaked out of it, so it is the same body that is interred in the earth, and falls asleep by death, that will be quickened and awaked at the resurrection: and it is clear from the places from whence the dead will be raised, the repositories of them, as death and hell, or the grave, and the sea; for none but the same bodies that are laid in the grave, or cast into the sea, can be said to come forth out of them, or be delivered up; by them: and from the subject of the resurrection, the bodies of men, their vile and mortal bodies, which can be no other than their present ones; and from the end of the resurrection, which is that some may come to life, and others to damnation; and from the justice of God, which requires that the same bodies Christ has purchased, find who have served and suffered for him, should be glorified; and the same that have done evil against him, and abused themselves and his people, be punished: this might be argued from the translations of Enoch and Elijah in their bodies to heaven, in which they were on earth; and from the resurrection of the bodies of the saints at Christs resurrection, and the change that will be on the bodies of living saints at the coming of Christ; for it is not reasonable to suppose, that some of the saints shall have their own bodies, and others none at all, or not the same they lived in here: this may be further confirmed, from the resurrection of Christs body, which was the same he had before; it was not changed into a spirit, but consisted of flesh and bones, as it had done; and had on it the very print of the nails, and spear in his hands, feet, and side; and to this the bodies of the saints are to be fashioned: add to all this, if it is not a resurrection of the same body, but new ones are created, to which the soul will be united, it will not be a resurrection, but a transmigration of souls into other bodies; but as every seed has its own body, so will every soul have its own body, though greatly different as to its qualities, and much improved for the better, as in seed sown: and this is the sense of the ancient Jews f330 , says R. Chijah, wqy hwhd apwg awhhd , that that selfsame body that was shall rise, is clear from what is written, thy dead men shall live, ( Isaiah 26:19) and it is not written, shall be created; from whence it is evident that they shall not be created, but shall be quickened: and again f331 , in the time to come, the holy blessed God will quicken the dead, and raise them rp[m , out of their own dust, that they may not be a building of dust, as they were at first, when they were created out of dust itself, a thing which is not stable, according to ( Genesis 2:7) and at that time they shall be raised out of the dust, out of that building, and shall stand in a stable building, that they may have stability, or duration.

    So on those words, I kill and I make alive, I wound and I heal, ( Deuteronomy 32:39) they observe f332 , that as wounding and healing are djab , in one, (and the same body,) so death and life are djab , in one and the same.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 35-50 - 1. How are the dead raised up? that is, by what means? How can they be raised? 2. As to the bodies which shall rise. Will it be with the lik shape, and form, and stature, and members, and qualities? The forme objection is that of those who opposed the doctrine, the latter of curious doubters. To the first the answer is, This was to be brough about by Divine power; that power which all may see does somewhat lik it, year after year, in the death and revival of the corn. It is foolish to question the Almighty power of God to raise the dead, when we see it every day quickening and reviving things that are dead. To the second inquiry; The grain undergoes a great change; and so will the dead, when they rise and live again. The seed dies, though a part of it springs into new life, though how it is we cannot fully understand. The works of creation and providence daily teach us to be humble, as wel as to admire the Creator's wisdom and goodness. There is a grea variety among other bodies, as there is among plants. There is variety of glory among heavenly bodies. The bodies of the dead, when they rise, will be fitted for the heavenly bodies. The bodies of the dead, when they rise, will be fitted for the heavenly state; and ther will be a variety of glories among them. Burying the dead, is lik committing seed to the earth, that it may spring out of it again Nothing is more loathsome than a dead body. But believers shall at the resurrection have bodies, made fit to be for ever united with spirit made perfect. To God all things are possible. He is the Author an Source of spiritual life and holiness, unto all his people, by the supply of his Holy Spirit to the soul; and he will also quicken an change the body by his Spirit. The dead in Christ shall not only rise but shall rise thus gloriously changed. The bodies of the saints, when they rise again, will be changed. They will be then glorious an spiritual bodies, fitted to the heavenly world and state, where the are ever afterwards to dwell. The human body in its present form, an with its wants and weaknesses, cannot enter or enjoy the kingdom of God. Then let us not sow to the flesh, of which we can only rea corruption. And the body follows the state of the soul. He, therefore who neglects the life of the soul, casts away his present good; he wh refuses to live to God, squanders all he has.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    37. Not that
    body that shall be. Or, more literally, that shall come to pass. Meeting the objector's assumption that either the raised body must be the same body, or that there could be no resurrection. Paul says: "What you sow is one body, and a different body arises;" yet the identity is preserved. Dissolution is not loss of identity. The full heads of wheat are different from the wheat-grain, yet both are wheat. Clement of Rome, in his first Epistle to the Corinthians, arguing for the resurrection of the body, cites in illustration the fable of the phoenix, the Arabian bird, the only one of its kind, and which lives for a hundred years. When the time of its death draws near it builds itself a nest of frankincense, myrrh, and other spices, and entering it, dies. In the decay of its flesh a worm is produced, which, being nourished by the juices of the dead bird, brings forth feathers. Then, when it has acquired strength, it takes up the nest with the bones of its parent and bears them to Heliopolis in Egypt.

    Bare (gumnon). Naked. The mere seed, without the later investiture of stalk and head.

    It may chance (ei tucoi). Lit., if it happen to be: i.e., whatever grain you may chance to sow.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    15:37 {Not the body which shall be} (ou to swma to genesomenon). Articular future participle of ginomai, literally, "not the body that will become." The new {body} (swma) is not yet in existence, but only the seed (kokkos, grain, old word, as in #Mt 13:31). {It may chance} (ei tucoi). Fourth class condition as in #14:10 which see. Paul is rich in metaphors here, though usually not so (Howson, _Metaphors of St. Paul_). Paul was a city man. We sow seeds, not plants (bodies). The butterfly comes out of the dying worm.
