53b  For this mortal must put on immortality.
34a  Awake to righteousness and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God;
Wisdom 3:9  they that put their trust in him shall understand the truth.
51b  We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed
52a  in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.
53b  For this mortal must put on immortality.
