Longer Bible passages about death

Psalm 103:8-17

8 The Lord is compassionate and merciful,
      slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
 9 He will not constantly accuse us,
      nor remain angry forever.
 10 He does not punish us for all our sins;
      he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve.
 11 For his unfailing love toward those who fear him
      is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.
 12 He has removed our sins as far from us
      as the east is from the west.
 13 The Lord is like a father to his children,
      tender and compassionate to those who fear him.
 14 For he knows how weak we are;
      he remembers we are only dust.
 15 Our days on earth are like grass;
      like wildflowers, we bloom and die.
 16 The wind blows, and we are gone—
      as though we had never been here.
 17 But the love of the Lord remains forever
      with those who fear him.
   His salvation extends to the children’s children

A time for everything - even death

Ecclesiastes 3:1-

A Time for Everything

 1 For everything there is a season,
      a time for every activity under heaven.
 2 A time to be born and a time to die.
      A time to plant and a time to harvest.
 3 A time to kill and a time to heal.
      A time to tear down and a time to build up.
 4 A time to cry and a time to laugh.
      A time to grieve and a time to dance.
 5 A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
      A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
 6 A time to search and a time to quit searching.
      A time to keep and a time to throw away.
 7 A time to tear and a time to mend.
      A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
 8 A time to love and a time to hate.
      A time for war and a time for peace.

Death has lost it's victory

1 Corinthians 15:42-57

 42 It is the same way with the resurrection of the dead. Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever. 43 Our bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength. 44 They are buried as natural human bodies, but they will be raised as spiritual bodies. For just as there are natural bodies, there are also spiritual bodies.

 45 The Scriptures tell us, “The first man, Adam, became a living person.”[a] But the last Adam—that is, Christ—is a life-giving Spirit. 46 What comes first is the natural body, then the spiritual body comes later. 47 Adam, the first man, was made from the dust of the earth, while Christ, the second man, came from heaven. 48 Earthly people are like the earthly man, and heavenly people are like the heavenly man. 49 Just as we are now like the earthly man, we will someday be like[b] the heavenly man.

 50 What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These dying bodies cannot inherit what will last forever.

 51 But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed! 52 It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed. 53 For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.

 54 Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die,[c] this Scripture will be fulfilled:

   “Death is swallowed up in victory.[d]
 55 O death, where is your victory?
      O death, where is your sting?[e]

 56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. 57 But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Life after death Bible passage

Revelation 21:1-7

The New Jerusalem

 1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. 2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

 3 I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them.[a]4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”

 5 And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” 6 And he also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. 7 All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.

Bible verses for funerals

1 Thessalonians 4:13-17

The Hope of the Resurrection

13 And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died[a] so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.

15 We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died.[b]16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died[c] will rise from their graves. 17 Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever.

Philippians 1:20-23

Paul’s Life for Christ

20 For I fully expect and hope that I will never be ashamed, but that I will continue to be bold for Christ, as I have been in the past. And I trust that my life will bring honor to Christ, whether I live or die. 21 For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better. 22 But if I live, I can do more fruitful work for Christ. So I really don’t know which is better. 23 I’m torn between two desires: I long to go and be with Christ, which would be far better for me.


2 Corinthians 4:16-15:8

16 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits arebeing renewed every day. 17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18 So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.

2 Corinthians 5

1 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. 2 We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. 3 For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. 4 While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. 5 God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit. 6 So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord. 7 For we live by believing and not by seeing. 8 Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord.


Romans 8:31-39

31 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? 32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? 33 Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. 34 Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.

35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Psalm 23:1-6

1 The Lord is my shepherd;
I have all that I need.
2 He lets me rest in green meadows;
he leads me beside peaceful streams.
3 He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.
4 Even when I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me.
5 You prepare a feast for me
in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
6 Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord
forever.


Isaiah 41:10-13


10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.

11 “See, all your angry enemies lie there,
confused and humiliated.
Anyone who opposes you will die
and come to nothing.
12 You will look in vain
for those who tried to conquer you.
Those who attack you
will come to nothing.
13 For I hold you by your right hand—
I, the Lord your God.
And I say to you,
‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.


Gospel Bible verses about death

John 14:1-6

Jesus, the Way to the Father

   “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. 2There is more than enough room in my Father’s home.[a] If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?[b]3When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. 4And you know the way to where I am going.”

 5 “No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said. “We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

 6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.


John 11:17-27

 17 When Jesus arrived at Bethany, he was told that Lazarus had already been in his grave for four days. 18 Bethany was only a few miles[a] down the road from Jerusalem, 19 and many of the people had come to console Martha and Mary in their loss. 20 When Martha got word that Jesus was coming, she went to meet him. But Mary stayed in the house. 21 Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if only you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But even now I know that God will give you whatever you ask.”

 23 Jesus told her, “Your brother will rise again.”

 24 “Yes,” Martha said, “he will rise when everyone else rises, at the last day.”

 25 Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life.[b] Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. 26Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?”

 27 “Yes, Lord,” she told him. “I have always believed you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who has come into the world from God.”


John 6:35-40

 35 Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. 36But you haven’t believed in me even though you have seen me. 37However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I will never reject them. 38For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will. 39And this is the will of God, that I should not lose even one of all those he has given me, but that I should raise them up at the last day. 40For it is my Father’s will that all who see his Son and believe in him should have eternal life. I will raise them up at the last day.”

Death is one of the hardest things we have to "swallow" in life. God Gave me the task of rewriting a Jewish Prayer for the True Christian. It is the mourner's kaddish. I have included reference to the Messiah, Yeshua, in it as was Given to me. If anyone wants or needs this prayer, I would gladly provide it to you. Please send me an e-mail. The Prayer the Mourner's Kaddish for True Christians will surely bring you Peace.

the thing is I not worried about death just dont want to die if I had kids to live for...I think death is just another journey after all this life will be gone beofre we all knew it : )


cruick1113 6 years ago

For loriamoore. I lost my Mom a little over two weeks ago, and I've come to understand that it isn't the natural order to lost a child before losing a parent. My Mom's death so far is the hardest thing I've had to go through, but losing my Children, or Grandchildren would be much more worst. I hope this makes sense and brings you understanding and most of all comfort. I pray in Jesus name. Thanks, and May God bless you. Robin

I lost my mom 3 years ago. It happened suddenly and unexpected. From the day she was told she had liver cancer she passed into heaven 14 days later. My mother became a Christian when she was 77 and baptized at 78. I gave her the 1-year New Living Translation, she read it twice. She said this was the first Bible she could really understand. Little did I know the last conversation I would have with her went like this. She said, Cathy, I'm 80 years old, I've lived a long life, you know how we are always talking about how beautiful and wonderful heaven is going to be? Well, I get to go there! She was at peace knowing where she was going. Praise God.

I lost a brother, my dad, a daughter-in-law (very young) and a six year old granddaughter and losing my mother in June this year was the hardest thing I have ever been through. She had become my baby as I had once been hers and she was slowly murdered by caregivers, hospitals and nursing homes. She went through over three years of torture and I don't think I will ever get over it. She had Alzheimer's and it was like a child being abused behind a parents back. She called my name constantly but I was hours away and could only get to her every few weeks. Always to find something bad. She had other children 10 minutes from her who would never go see her.

I just recently lost my father on 10-25-2010, I loved him very much, my whole family and I did, more than words could ever say, I know where he is, he loved the Lord with all his heart, soul and mind, it gives me a lot of hope in knowing, I will see him again, ONLY Christians, KNOW this, Worldy people don't have this hope. However..........as Christians WE DO!!!!!!!! This is why, we need to spread the news, and let people know, Jesus is REAL and full of glory, peace and so much love.

This is very helpful! Thanx for the post! I lost my god-mother on Nov. 7th, and I am trying to get myself together! One thing that I noticed was that I can't do it alone. For some foolish reason I was trying to find strength in MYSELF instead of keeping my mind stayed on GOD who promised to keep me in perfect peace. His will is perfect, his plan is perfect, he is perfect! I know that I must trust him no matter what decision he makes! Lord I put my trust in YOU!

My 92-year old grandfather died yesterday, August 19, 2011. The happy thoughts of him made me realize that life is a happy journey if one chooses it that way. He lived a very calm and prayerful life. When I was growing up, I have seen how he devoted his time working and praying. He never missed the angelus at 6pm everyday. Maybe this is the reason why God gave him long life.

im 18 yrs old and the oldest of 4 children. my father died only 2 months ago. it has been a very tough time to say in the least. he wasn't sick at all, just went to sleep one night and didn't ever wake up. it is still hard to comprehend, but through it i have found myself searching out God. this struggle has made things clearer for me and brought me closer to God than i have been in a while. please pray for my family though, they are hurting just like i am but i dont see them drawing to God as i would wish them to in this time of pain.

Our daughter passed away due to a spleen abscess & pneumonia complications at the age of 14 on March 7, 2011 of this year. Her best friend, a girl who was like our second daughter, passed away in a car accident at the age of 15 on October 9, 2011. It has been a difficult year as a close friend's father as well as my husband's grandparents passed away this year, too. We have found strength in our faith and we know that God is at work. So many people turned to God because of our daughter and her very good friend passing & that in itself is a miracle. I am sad because I miss them both so much but I know God is carrying us and we have the promise that we will be together again. I can offer you a shoulder if you are facing a loss and not sure where to turn. I feel I've been given the gift of helping others through pain and God knew I would be there to help others through this horrible experience. If you need words of comfort or if you feel like you can't cope, please send me an e-mail, tell me about your painful experience & I will try to help you. I have no degree in Psychiatry or Psychology but my life experiences give me a breadth of knowledge on suffering & pain. I'd love to help you if I can! I know my girls in Heaven give me strength to help others! (Email: glendahoff@zoho.com)

I lost my mom when I was 12 from Orvarian Cancer. Its been exacly two years today. The hardest part was/is not understanding why this happened. She was the strongest person I will ever know and I know she was scared, but she was more worried about my brother and I. I love her and miss her very much and the only thing that keeps me from going crazy is knowing she is in her final home with God.

Five days ago, a man that i am seeing lost his grandfather. He hasn't spoke to me since. I have been in this relationship with him for a while and i loved his grandad too. I feel like he has completely shut me out. I feel like there isn't anything i can do to make him feel better about having to say goodbye to grandad. I wanted to send him the bible verse John 3:16 but am afraid that he might get upset. I just need some advice on what to do.

Dave....I have to wonder what happened to cause you to be so bitter. What is it to you if looking to the Bible brings someone comfort. If that is how you feel, then that's between you and God. It shows more about your character, to post such hateful comments here. This site is for those seeking comfort from the pain of losing a loved one. Its what brought me here. I am currently sitting at my Dad's bedside, where I have been for the past 3 1/2 weeks, because he is dying after a 2 year battle with bladder cancer. Each day I'm told "Just a bit longer" but the days drag on as I watch him hurt and waste away. Only those who have experienced it can truly understand the range of emotions involved in losing a loved one. For the first 2 weeks I was so grief struck that could not eat nor sleep. One day I decided to look for verses dealing with death. That, along with prayer, filled me with that "peace beyond all understanding". I have begun reading verses out loud to Dad and it seems to bring him comfort also.

To those seeking comfort and understanding, know that God's word is a real source. If you seek his face, it will be revealed to you.

I have lost so many loved ones in my lifetime. Although I have learned much from others about dealing with the death of a loved one, one thing is clear: we never get used to death. It is not a welcome visitor because we hate losing and missing a loved one. Holding on to God's promises has been my inspiration.

Thanks for sharing.

I know that she is with the lord, but it doesn't make her death any less sad. I never realized how precious life was until all of the sudden it was gone. I trust in the Lord.

My auntie 45yrs old passed on last night and her husband and kids are very affected. I am too for we've been praying and believing for her recovery for about 3yrs.I hope they will get thru as they are very financially constrained. Last year, an uncle @35 from a poisonous sting and possible misdiagnosis. Both in Kenya. Thanks I'll pass the verses to family, and somebody pray with me and cancel any more pre-mature deaths.

Sadly, just a half an hour ago, my ex- husband from 26 years ago was laid to rest, 900 miles away from where I now live, after committing suicide on April 10,2012..I have searched for words of encouragement and scripture to re-assure me that he would be welcomed into the arms of Our Lord..I found this reassurance in one of the scriptures listed above. He was faithful and believed in God's promises. I must believe that he had made a rash decision, and must not have had a clear head to have left his children of 17 and 10 years old. We parted many years ago on good terms, and I had even met with him & his wife and mother for dinner back in 2000 upon visiting the area where we had lived to spread my Mother's ashes. They were together many years, and I lost touch with him, but thought about him often, and wished him joy. In conclusion, I wanted to thank you for your work in setting up this page, for all of you sharing your care and concern for one another, and for reinforcing what I already knew. The faithful shall be taken into God's arms and welcomed because of Jesus' suffering for our sins. The faithful shall be forgiven, and God's Word is always a comfort and inspiration in times of trial and in joy. May all of you seeking comfort be granted peace. (((hugs))) to all of you here.

My mom was murdered a year ago today. I came seeking scripture and am glad I found this. I am still a very angry and bitter person, though I know she is an angel smiling down. These verses remind me. Thank you.

"I AM WHO I AM". (WHO ARE U?). GOD SAYS I AM WHAT I AM. GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD,....(JN.3.16). HE WAS IN THE WORLD AND THE WORLD WAS MADE BY HIM AND THE WORLD DID NOT KNEW HIM!..... (SEPARATED FROM GOD)(REDEEMED BY CHRIST). NO KNOWS THE FATHER EXCEPT THE SON AND NOONE KNOWS THE SON (ME) EXCEPT THE FATHER, BUT HE SHALL HAVE MERCY ON WHOM HE HAS MERCY!,..., "WORK WHILE THERE IS LIGHT, DARKNESS IS COMING, YOU CAN NO MORE WORK"...(MAN IS GOING BACK NOT FORWARD, BUT CHRIST LEADS HIM OUT OF HIS WORLD INTO HIS (KINGDOM). WILL EVER ANY MAN WHO IS NOT IN CHRIST LOVE HIM A BIT? THE ANSWER IS SURELY NO. EVEN DEATH PARTS HIM HE CANNOT LOVE HIM ATALL, SO HE DIED THAT WE MIGHT KNOW LIFE IS IN HIM AND NONE ELSE. EVERYTHING, HEAVEN AND EARTH CEASES FROM HIM ON THE DAY OF JUDGMENT (MISS HIM FOR EVER AND EVER). NOTHING ENDURES BEFORE HIM (THE WORD AND LIGHT OF THE WORLD)....AMEN & AMEN
