For he was looking forward to 1the city that has 2foundations, 3whose designer and builder is God.
By faith 4Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered 5him faithful who had promised.
Therefore from one man, and 6him as good as dead, were born descendants 7as many as the stars of heaven and as many as the innumerable grains of sand by the seashore.
These all died in faith, 8not having received the things promised, but 9having seen them and greeted them from afar, and 10having acknowledged that they were 11strangers and exiles on the earth.
For people who speak thus make it clear that they are seeking a homeland.
