1 Corinthians 15:20-28 ALT
(20) But now Christ has been raised from [the] dead! He became the first-fruits of the ones having fallen asleep [fig., having died]. (21) For since by means of a man death [came], also by means of a Man [is] [the] resurrection of [the] dead. (22) For just as in Adam all die, in the same way also in Christ all will be given life. (23) But each in his own order, Christ [the] first-fruit, afterwards the [ones] of Christ at His Arrival. (24) Then the end, when He shall hand over the kingdom to God, even [the] Father, when He shall abolish every ruler and every authority and power. (25) For it is necessary [for] Him to be reigning until He shall put all the enemies under His feet. (26) [The] last enemy being abolished [is] death. (27) For 'He put all [things] in subjection under His feet.' But when He says that all [things] have been subjected, [it is] evident that [this is] except for the One subjecting all the [things] to Him. [Psalm 8:6] (28) Now when all the [things] are subjected to Him, then the Son also Himself will be subjected to One having subjected all the [things] to Him, so that God shall be the all in all.

1 Corinthians 15:20-28 CEV
(20) But Christ has been raised to life! And he makes us certain that others will also be raised to life. (21) Just as we will die because of Adam, we will be raised to life because of Christ. (22) Adam brought death to all of us, and Christ will bring life to all of us. (23) But we must each wait our turn. Christ was the first to be raised to life, and his people will be raised to life when he returns. (24) Then after Christ has destroyed all powers and forces, the end will come, and he will give the kingdom to God the Father. (25) Christ will rule until he puts all his enemies under his power, (26) and the last enemy he destroys will be death. (27) When the Scriptures say that he will put everything under his power, they don't include God. It was God who put everything under the power of Christ. (28) After everything is under the power of God's Son, he will put himself under the power of God, who put everything under his Son's power. Then God will mean everything to everyone.

1 Corinthians 15:20-28 NWT
20 However, now Christ has been raised up from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep [in death]. 21 For since death is through a man, resurrection of the dead is also through a man. 22 For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each one in his own rank: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who belong to the Christ during his presence. 24 Next, the end, when he hands over the kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power. 25 For he must rule as king until [God] has put all enemies under his feet. 26 As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing. 27 For [God] "subjected all things under his feet." But when he says that 'all things have been subjected,' it is evident that it is with the exception of the one who subjected all things to him. 28 But when all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone.
