2 Timothy 4:8
Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
(The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection.
