Hebrews 11


11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the
 evidence of things not seen.
11:2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by
 the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of
 things which appeared.
11:4 By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice
 than Cain, by which he obtained testimony that he was
 righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead
 yet speaketh.
11:5 By faith Enoch was translated, that he should not see
 death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for
 before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased
 God.
11:6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for
 he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is
 a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
11:7 By faith Noah, being warned by God of things not seen as
 yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his
 house; by which he condemned the world, and became heir of the
 righteousness which is by faith.
11:8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to remove into a place
 which he should afterwards receive for an inheritance, obeyed;
 and he went out not knowing whither he was going.
11:9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as [in] a
 foreign country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob,
 the heirs with him of the same promise:
11:10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose
 builder and maker [is] God.
11:11 Through faith also Sarah herself received strength to
 conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past
 age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
11:12 Therefore there sprang even from one, and him as good as
 dead, [so many] as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as
 the sand which is by the sea-shore innumerable.
11:13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises,
 but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of [them],
 and embraced [them], and confessed that they were strangers and
 pilgrims on the earth.
11:14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they
 seek a country.
11:15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that [country] from
 whence they came, they might have had opportunity to return.
11:16 But now they desire a better [country], that is, a
 heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God;
 for he hath prepared for them a city.
11:17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and
 he that had received the promises offered up his only-begotten
 [son],
11:18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be
 called:
11:19 Accounting that God [was] able to raise [him] even from
 the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.
11:20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to
 come.
11:21 By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed both the sons
 of Joseph; and worshiped, [leaning] upon the top of his staff.
11:22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the
 departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment
 concerning his bones.
11:23 By faith Moses when he was born, was hid three months by
 his parents, because they saw [he was] a proper child; and they
 were not afraid of the king's commandment.
11:24 By faith Moses, when he had come to years, refused to be
 called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
11:25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of
 God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
11:26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the
 treasures of Egypt: for he had respect to the recompense of the
 reward.
11:27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the
 king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
11:28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of
 blood, lest he that destroyed the first-born should touch them.
11:29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry [land]:
 which the Egyptians essaying to do were drowned.
11:30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had
 been encompassed seven days.
11:31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that
 believed not, as she had received the spies with peace.
11:32 And what shall I say more? for the time would fail me to
 tell of Gideon, and [of] Barak, and [of] Samson, and [of]
 Jephthah, [of] David also, and Samuel, and [of] the prophets:
11:33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness,
 obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
11:34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the
 sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in
 fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
11:35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others
 were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might
 obtain a better resurrection:
11:36 And others had trial of [cruel] mockings and scourgings,
 and, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
11:37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted,
 were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheep-skins,
 and goat-skins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;
11:38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in
 deserts, and [in] mountains, and [in] dens and caves of the
 earth.
11:39 And these all, having obtained a good report through
 faith, received not the promise:
11:40 God having provided some better [thing] for us, that they
 without us should not be made perfect.
