| Hebrews 11 Text (WEB)
- Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen.
- For by this, the elders obtained testimony.
- By faith, we understand that the universe has been framed by the word of God, so that what is seen has not been made out of things which are visible.
- By faith, Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he had testimony given to him that he was righteous, God testifying with respect to his gifts; and through it he, being dead, still speaks.
- By faith, Enoch was taken away, so that he wouldn't see death, and he was not found, because God translated him. For he has had testimony given to him that before his translation he had been well pleasing to God.
- Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him, for he who comes to God must believe that he exists, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him.
- By faith, Noah, being warned about things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared a ship for the saving of his house, through which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
- By faith, Abraham, when he was called, obeyed to go out to the place which he was to receive for an inheritance. He went out, not knowing where he went.
- By faith, he lived as an alien in the land of promise, as in a land not his own, dwelling in tents, with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise.
- For he looked for the city which has the foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
- By faith, even Sarah herself received power to conceive, and she bore a child when she was past age, since she counted him faithful who had promised.
- Therefore as many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as innumerable as the sand which is by the sea shore, were fathered by one man, and him as good as dead.
- These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them and embraced them from afar, and having confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
- For those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a country of their own.
- If indeed they had been thinking of that country from which they went out, they would have had enough time to return.
- But now they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed of them, to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.
- By faith, Abraham, being tested, offered up Isaac. Yes, he who had gladly received the promises was offering up his one and only son;
- even he to whom it was said, "In Isaac will your seed be called;"
- concluding that God is able to raise up even from the dead. Figuratively speaking, he also did receive him back from the dead.
- By faith, Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau, even concerning things to come.
- By faith, Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and worshiped, leaning on the top of his staff.
- By faith, Joseph, when his end was near, made mention of the departure of the children of Israel; and gave instructions concerning his bones.
- By faith, Moses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents, because they saw that he was a beautiful child, and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.
- By faith, Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter,
- choosing rather to share ill treatment with God's people, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a time;
- accounting the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt; for he looked to the reward.
- By faith, he left Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
- By faith, he kept the Passover, and the sprinkling of the blood, that the destroyer of the firstborn should not touch them.
- By faith, they passed through the Red Sea as on dry land. When the Egyptians tried to do so, they were swallowed up.
- By faith, the walls of Jericho fell down, after they had been encircled for seven days.
- By faith, Rahab the prostitute, didn't perish with those who were disobedient, having received the spies in peace.
- What more shall I say? For the time would fail me if I told of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel, and the prophets;
- who, through faith subdued kingdoms, worked out righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
- quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, grew mighty in war, and caused foreign armies to flee.
- Women received their dead by resurrection. Others were tortured, not accepting their deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection.
- Others were tried by mocking and scourging, yes, moreover by bonds and imprisonment.
- They were stoned. They were sawn apart. They were tempted. They were slain with the sword. They went around in sheep skins and in goat skins; being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated
- (of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts, mountains, caves, and the holes of the earth.
- These all, having had testimony given to them through their faith, didn't receive the promise,
- God having provided some better thing concerning us, so that apart from us they should not be made perfect.

- כי האמונה היא חסן הבטחון במקוה והוכחת דברים לא נראים׃
- ובה נחלו האבות עדות׃
- באמונה נבין כי העולמות נעשו בדבר האלהים למען אשר יצא הנראה מן הנעלם׃
- באמונה הקריב הבל לאלהים זבח טוב מקין אשר היה לו לעדות כי צדיק הוא בהעיד אלהים על מנחתיו ובה עודנו מדבר אחרי מותו׃
- באמונה לקח חנוך לבלתי ראותו המות ואיננו כי לקח אתו אלהים והועד עליו לפני הלקחו כי את האלהים התהלך׃
- ובלי אמונה לא יוכל איש להיות רצוי אל האלהים כי כל הקרב אליו צריך להאמין כי יש אלהים וגמול הוא משיב לדרשיו׃
- באמונה בנה נח ביראת יהוה את התבה להצלת ביתו אתרי אשר צוה על דברים לא נראים עדין וירשע בה את העולם ויהי לירש הצדקה עקב האמונה׃
- באמונה שמע אברהם כאשר נקרא ללכת אל הארץ אשר יירשנה ויצא ולא ידע אנה יבוא׃
- באמונה היה גר בארץ ההבטחה כמו בנכריה וישב באהלים הוא ויצחק ויעקב אשר ירשו עמו ההבטחה ההיא׃
- כי חכה לעיר אשר יסודתה נאמנה ובונה ומכוננה האלהים׃
- באמונה שרה גם היא קבלה הכח להזריע ותלד אחרי בלתה כי חשבה לנאמן את המבטיח׃
- על כן מאחד אשר כמעט מת גופו יצאו ככוכבי השמים לרב וכחול על שפת הים אשר לא יספר׃
- כפי אמונה מתו כל אלה ולא השיגו את ההבטחות רק מרחוק ראו אותן ויבטחו וישמחו לקראתן ויודו כי גרים הם ותושבים בארץ׃
- הלא המדברים כזאת יודיעו כי הם מבקשי ארץ מושב׃
- ואם היתה דעתם על הארץ ההיא אשר יצאו ממנה הלא היה בידם לשוב אליה׃
- אכן נכספו למושב טוב ממנו והוא בשמים ועל כן לא בוש האלהים להקרא אלהיהם כי הכין להם עיר׃
- באמונה העלה אברהם את יצחק כאשר נסה ואת יחידו הקריב המקבל את ההבטחות׃
- אשר נאמר לו כי ביצחק יקרא לך זרע׃
- ויחשב בלבו כי יכול יוכל אלהים להחיות גם את המתים על כן גם הושב אליו להיות למשל׃
- באמונה ברך יצחק את יעקב ואת עשו וידבר על העתידות׃
- באמונה ברך יעקב את שני בני יוסף לפני מותו וישתחו על ראש המטה׃
- באמונה הזכיר יוסף בקרב קצו את יציאת בני ישראל ויצו על אדות עצמותיו׃
- באמונה הצפינו את משה אבותיו שלשה ירחים אהרי הולדו כראתם את הילד כי טוב הוא ולא יראו את מצות המלך׃
- באמונה מאן משה כאשר גדל להקרא בן לבת פרעה׃
- ויבחר לסבל את עני עם אלהים מלהתענג לשעה בתענוגי החטא׃
- בחשבו את חרפת המשיח לעשר גדול מאצרות מצרים כי הביט אל הגמול׃
- באמונה עזב את ארץ מצרים ולא ירא מחמת המלך כי היה כראה אשר איננו נראה ויתחזק׃
- באמונה עשה את הפסח ונתינת הדם למען אשר לא יגע המשחית בבכוריהם׃
- באמונה עברו את ים סוף ביבשה אשר נסו מצרים גם המה לעבר בו ויטבעו׃
- באמונה נפלו חומות יריחו אחרי הקיפו אותן שבעת ימים׃
- באמונה לא אבדה רחב הזונה עם הסוררים כי אספה את המרגלים אל ביתה בשלום׃
- ומה אמר עוד הן תקצר לי העת אם אספר מעשי גדעון וברק ושמשון ויפתח ודוד ושמואל והנביאים׃
- אשר באמונה כבשו ממלכות ופעלו צדק והשגו הבטחות וסכרו פי אריות׃
- וכבו גבורת האש ונמלטו מפי החרב והתחזקו מחלים ועשו חיל במלחמה והפילו מחנות זרים׃
- נשים לקחו מתחיה את מתיהן ואחרים רטשו בענוים ולא אבו להנצל למען יזכו לתחיה טובה ממנה׃
- מהם נסו בתעלולים ובמכות וגם נמסרו לכבל ומסגר׃
- נסקלו באבנים נסרו במגרה נבחנו ביסורים מתו לפי חרב וינעו עטופי עורת כבשים ועזים בחסר ובעצר רעה ויגון׃
- אשר העולם לא היה כדי להם הם תעו במדבר ובהרים ובמערות ובנקיקי הארץ׃
- וכל אלה אף היתה להם העדות בגלל אמונתם לא קבלו את ההבטחה׃
- למען אשר לא ישלמו בלעדינו כי צפה לנו אלהים מקדם טובה יתרה׃
| Hebrews 11 Text (Latin)
- Est autem fides sperandarum substantia rerum, argumentum non apparentium.
- In hac enim testimonium consecuti sunt senes.
- Fide intelligimus aptata esse sæcula verbo Dei : ut ex invisibilibus visibilia fierent.
- Fide plurimam hostiam Abel, quam Cain, obtulit Deo, per quam testimonium consecutus est esse justus, testimonium perhibente muneribus ejus Deo, et per illam defunctus adhuc loquitur.
- Fide Henoch translatus est ne videret mortem, et non inveniebatur, quia transtulit illum Deus : ante translationem enim testimonium habuit placuisse Deo.
- Sine fide autem impossibile est placere Deo. Credere enim oportet accedentem ad Deum quia est, et inquirentibus se remunerator sit.
- Fide Noë responso accepto de iis quæ adhuc non videbantur, metuens aptavit arcam in salutem domus suæ, per quam damnavit mundum : et justitiæ, quæ per fidem est, hæres est institutus.
- Fide qui vocatur Abraham obedivit in locum exire, quem accepturus erat in hæreditatem : et exiit, nesciens quo iret.
- Fide demoratus est in terra repromissionis, tamquam in aliena, in casulis habitando cum Isaac et Jacob cohæredibus repromissionis ejusdem.
- Exspectabat enim fundamenta habentem civitatem : cujus artifex et conditor Deus.
- Fide et ipsa Sara sterilis virtutem in conceptionem seminis accepit, etiam præter tempus ætatis : quoniam fidelem credidit esse eum qui repromiserat.
- Propter quod et ab uno orti sunt (et hoc emortuo) tamquam sidera cæli in multitudinem, et sicut arena, quæ est ad oram maris, innumerabilis.
- Juxta fidem defuncti sunt omnes isti, non acceptis repromissionibus, sed a longe eas aspicientes, et salutantes, et confitentes quia peregrini et hospites sunt super terram.
- Qui enim hæc dicunt, significant se patriam inquirere.
- Et si quidem ipsius meminissent de qua exierunt, habebant utique tempus revertendi :
- nunc autem meliorem appetunt, id est, cælestem. Ideo non confunditur Deus vocari Deus eorum : paravit enim illis civitatem.
- Fide obtulit Abraham Isaac, cum tentaretur, et unigenitum offerebat, qui susceperat repromissiones :
- ad quem dictum est : Quia in Isaac vocabitur tibi semen :
- arbitrans quia et a mortuis suscitare potens est Deus : unde eum et in parabolam accepit.
- Fide et de futuris benedixit Isaac Jacob et Esau.
- Fide Jacob, moriens, singulos filiorum Joseph benedixit : et adoravit fastigium virgæ ejus.
- Fide Joseph, moriens, de profectione filiorum Israël memoratus est, et de ossibus suis mandavit.
- Fide Moyses, natus, occultatus est mensibus tribus a parentibus suis, eo quod vidissent elegantem infantem, et non timuerunt regis edictum.
- Fide Moyses grandis factus negavit se esse filium filiæ Pharaonis,
- magis eligens affligi cum populo Dei, quam temporalis peccati habere jucunditatem,
- majores divitias æstimans thesauro Ægyptiorum, improperium Christi : aspiciebat enim in remunerationem.
- Fide reliquit Ægyptum, non veritus animositatem regis : invisibilem enim tamquam videns sustinuit.
- Fide celebravit Pascha, et sanguinis effusionem : ne qui vastabat primitiva, tangeret eos.
- Fide transierunt mare Rubrum tamquam per aridam terram : quod experti Ægyptii, devorati sunt.
- Fide muri Jericho corruerunt, circuitu dierum septem.
- Fide Rahab meretrix non periit cum incredulis, excipiens exploratores cum pace.
- Et quid adhuc dicam ? deficiet enim me tempus enarrantem de Gedeon, Barac, Samson, Jephte, David, Samuel, et prophetis :
- qui per fidem vicerunt regna, operati sunt justitiam, adepti sunt repromissiones, obturaverunt ora leonum,
- extinxerunt impetum ignis, effugerunt aciem gladii, convaluerunt de infirmitate, fortes facti sunt in bello, castra verterunt exterorum :
- acceperunt mulieres de resurrectione mortuos suos : alii autem distenti sunt non suscipientes redemptionem ut meliorem invenirent resurrectionem.
- Alii vero ludibria, et verbera experti, insuper et vincula, et carceres :
- lapidati sunt, secti sunt, tentati sunt, in occisione gladii mortui sunt, circuierunt in melotis, in pellibus caprinis, egentes, angustiati, afflicti :
- quibus dignus non erat mundus : in solitudinibus errantes, in montibus, in speluncis, et in cavernis terræ.
- Et hi omnes testimonio fidei probati, non acceperunt repromissionem,
- Deo pro nobis melius aliquid providente, ut non sine nobis consummarentur.
| Hebrews 11 Text (KJV)
- Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
- For by it the elders obtained a good report.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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:
- For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
- And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
- 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.
- By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
- Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
- Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.
- By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.
- By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.
- By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.
- 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.
- By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
- Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
- Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
- By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
- Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
- By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.
- By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.
- By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.
- 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:
- Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
- 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.
- Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
- And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
- 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;
- (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
- And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:
- God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
