Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993

 

   

11:1Now faith is the substantiation of things having been hoped, the evidence of things not having been seen.
11:2For by this the elders obtained witness.
11:3By faith we understand the ages to have been framed by the word of God, so that the things seen should not come into being out of things that appear.
11:4By faith Abel offered a greater sacrifice to God than Cain, by which he obtained witness to be righteous, God testifying over his gifts; and through it, having died, he yet speaks.
11:5By faith "Enoch" was translated so as not to see death, and "was not found, because God translated him." For before his translation, he had obtained witness to have been pleasing to God. Gen. 5:24
11:6But without faith it is impossible to please God . For it is right that the one drawing near to God should believe that He is, and that He becomes a rewarder to the ones seeking Him out.
11:7Being warned by God about the things not yet having been seen, moved with fear, by faith Noah prepared an ark for the salvation of his house; through which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness according to faith.
11:8Having been called out by faith, Abraham obeyed to go forth to a place which he was going to receive for an inheritance; and he went out not understanding where he went.
11:9By faith he resided as a foreigner in a land of promise, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the joint-heirs of the same promise;
11:10for he looked forward to a city having the foundations of which the builder and maker is God.
11:11Also by faith Sarah herself received power for conceiving seed even beyond the time of age, and gave birth; since she deemed the One having promised to be faithful.
11:12Because of this came into being from one (and that from one having died), seed even "as the stars of the heaven" in multitude and countless "as sand by the seaside." Gen. 22:17
11:13These all died by way of faith, not having received the promises, but seeing them from afar, and being persuaded, and having embraced and confessed that they are aliens and tenants.
11:14For those saying such things make clear that they seek a fatherland.
11:15And truly if they remembered that from which they came out, they had time to return.
11:16But now they stretch forth to a better, that is, a heavenly land . Therefore, God is not ashamed of them, for Him to be called their God; for He prepared a city for them.
11:17By faith, being tested, Abraham offered up Isaac; and he receiving the promises was offering up the only begotten,
11:18as to whom it was said, "In Isaac your Seed shall be called;" Gen. 21:12
11:19reckoning that God was able to raise even from the dead; from where indeed he obtained him in a parable.
11:20By faith concerning things to come Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau.
11:21By faith dying Jacob blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and "worshiped on the top of his staff." LXX-47:31
11:22Dying Joseph by faith made mention of the Exodus of the sons of Israel, and he gave orders concerning his bones.
11:23Being born, Moses was by faith hidden by his parents three months, because they saw the child was fair; and they did not fear the king's decree.
11:24Having become great, Moses by faith refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter,
11:25having chosen rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than for a time to have enjoyment of sin;
11:26having counted the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward.
11:27By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the anger of the king; for he kept on as seeing the Invisible One .
11:28By faith he made the Passover, and the sprinkling of blood, that the destroyer of the first-born might not touch them.
11:29By faith they passed through the Red Sea, as through dry land ; by which attempt the Egyptians taking, they were swallowed up.
11:30By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, having been circled during seven days.
11:31By faith Rahab the harlot did not perish with those disobeying, having received the spies with peace.
11:32And what more may I say? For the times will fail me telling about Gideon, Barak, and also Samson and Jephthah, and also David and Samuel, and the prophets,
11:33who through faith overcame kingdoms, worked out righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
11:34quenched the power of fire, escaped the mouths of the sword, acquired power from weakness, became strong in war, made armies of foreigners to yield.
11:35Women received their dead by resurrection; but others were beaten to death, not accepting deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection.
11:36And others received trial of mockings and of floggings; yea, more, of bonds and of prison:
11:37they were stoned; they were tried; they were sawn in two; they died by murder of sword; they went about in sheepskins and in goatskins, being in need, being afflicted, being ill-treated;
11:38of whom the world was not worthy, wandering in deserts, and mountains, and caves, and the holes of the earth.
11:39And having obtained witness through the faith, these all did not obtain the promise,
11:40God having foreseen something better concerning us, that they should not be perfected apart from us.
