Hebrews 11:8 — Hebrews 11:27
8 By faith aAbraham, being called, obeyed to bgo out unto a place which he was to creceive as an inheritance; and he went out, 1not knowing where he was going.
9 By faith he dwelt as a foreigner in the aland of promise as in a foreign land, making his home in btents with Isaac and Jacob, the fellow cheirs of the same promise;
10 For he eagerly waited for the 1acity which has the bfoundations, whose Architect and Builder is cGod.
11 By faith also aSarah herself received power to conceive seed, even beyond the season of age, since she considered Him bfaithful who promised.
12 Therefore also there were born of one, and that of him who had become adead, as many as even the 1bstars of heaven in multitude and as the 1csand by the 2seashore innumerable.
13 All athese died 1in faith, bnot receiving the promises but cseeing them from afar and joyfully greeting them and confessing that they were dstrangers and 2sojourners on the earth.
14 For those who say such things make it manifest that they seek after a acountry of their own.
15 And if indeed they continued to remember that country from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return;
16 But as it is, they long after a better acountry, that is, a bheavenly one. Therefore God is cnot ashamed of them, to be called dtheir God, for He has prepared a ecity for them.
17 By faith Abraham, being tested, aoffered up Isaac; indeed he who gladly received the bpromises was offering up his only begotten,
18 Of whom it was said, a“In Isaac shall your seed be called”;
19 Counting that God was aable to braise men even from the dead, from which he also received him back in 1figure.
20 By faith aIsaac blessed Jacob and Esau, even concerning things to come.
21 By faith aJacob, while he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph and bworshipped God, while 1leaning on the top of his staff.
22 By faith aJoseph, nearing his end, made mention of the exodus of the sons of Israel and bgave orders concerning his bones.
23 By faith aMoses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents because they saw that the child was blovely, and they did not fear the cking’s decree.
24 By faith Moses, when he had agrown up, refused to be called the bson of Pharaoh’s daughter,
25 Choosing rather to be aill treated with the people of God than to have the 1temporary 2enjoyment of sin,
26 1aConsidering the 2breproach of the Christ greater riches than the ctreasures of Egypt; for he dlooked away to the 3ereward.
27 By faith he aleft Egypt, not fearing the bwrath of the king, for he 1persevered as one cseeing the dunseen One.
