58_HEB_11_01 now faith Is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
58_HEB_11_02 for by it the elders obtained A good report.
58_HEB_11_03 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 do appear.
58_HEB_11_04 by faith Abel offered unto God A more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: And by it he being dead yet speaketh.
58_HEB_11_05 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.
58_HEB_11_06 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.
58_HEB_11_07 by faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with Fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, And became heir of the righteousness which Is by faith.
58_HEB_11_08 by faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into A place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; And he went out, not knowing whither he went.
58_HEB_11_09 by faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as [ in] A strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac And Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
58_HEB_11_10 for he looked for A city which hath foundations, whose builder And maker [ Is] God.
58_HEB_11_11 through faith also Sara 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.
58_HEB_11_12 therefore sprang there even of 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.
58_HEB_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.
58_HEB_11_14 for they that say such things declare plainly that they seek A country.
58_HEB_11_15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that [ country] from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
58_HEB_11_16 but now they desire A Better [ country], that Is, an heavenly: Wherefore God Is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them A city.
58_HEB_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].
58_HEB_11_18 of whom it was said, that in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
58_HEB_11_19 Accounting that God [ was] able to raise [ him] up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in A figure.
58_HEB_11_20 by faith Isaac blessed Jacob And Esau concerning things to come.
58_HEB_11_21 by faith Jacob, when he was A dying, blessed Both the sons of Joseph; And worshipped, [ leaning] upon the top of his staff.
58_HEB_11_22 by faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; And gave commandment concerning his bones.
58_HEB_11_23 by faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw [ he was] A proper child; And they were not afraid of the king's commandment.
58_HEB_11_24 by faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
58_HEB_11_25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for A season;
58_HEB_11_26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward.
58_HEB_11_27 by faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who Is invisible.
58_HEB_11_28 through faith he kept the passover, And the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
58_HEB_11_29 by faith they passed through the red sea as by dry [ land]: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.
58_HEB_11_30 by faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.
58_HEB_11_31 by faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.
58_HEB_11_32 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, And [ of] Barak, And [ of] Samson, And [ of] Jephthae; [ of] David also, And Samuel, And [ of] the prophets:
58_HEB_11_33 who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
58_HEB_11_34 quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
58_HEB_11_35 women received their dead raised to life again: And others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain A Better resurrection:
58_HEB_11_36 And others had trial of [ cruel] mockings And scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds And imprisonment:
58_HEB_11_37 they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins And goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;
58_HEB_11_38 [ of whom the world was not worthy:] they wandered in deserts, And [ in] mountains, And [ in] dens And caves of the earth.
58_HEB_11_39 And These all, having obtained A good report through faith, received not the promise:
58_HEB_11_40 God having provided some Better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
