1 Thessalonians 4:15-16

15For this we declare to you a  by a word from the Lord
Or  by the word of the Lord
that c  we who are alive, who are left until d  the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.
16For e  the Lord himself will descend f  from heaven g  with a cry of command, with the voice of h  an archangel, and i  with the sound of the trumpet of God. And j  the dead in Christ will rise first.
