Not subject to decay; ever-enduring. Imperishable (KJV, incorruption) describes the spiritual resurrection body which unlike the physical body is not subject to the decay associated with death (1 Corinthians 15:42-54 ). Imperishable describes the everlasting reward of the saints (1 Corinthians 9:25 ; 1 Peter 1:23 ). One of the Greek terms translated imperishable is also rendered immortality (Romans 2:7 ; 2 Timothy 1:10 ). The same term is used in reference to “undying” love in Ephesians 6:24 (KJV, “in sincerity”).
