351Women received back their dead by resurrection. Some were tortured, refusing to accept release, so that they might rise again to a better life.
Others suffered mocking and flogging, and even 2chains and imprisonment.
373They were stoned, they were sawn in two,a4they were killed with the sword. 5They went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, afflicted, mistreated--
of whom the world was not worthy--6wandering about in deserts and mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
And all these, 7though commended through their faith, 8did not receive what was promised,
since God had provided something better for us, 9that apart from us they should not be made perfect.
