View In My Bible
20 By faith 1Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau, even regarding things to come. 21 By faith 2Jacob, as he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and 3worshiped, leaning on the top of his staff. 22 By faith 4Joseph, when he was dying, made mention of the exodus of the sons of Israel, and gave orders concerning his bones. 23 By faith 5Moses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child ; and they were not afraid of the 6king's edict. 24 By faith Moses, 7when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter, 25 choosing rather to 8endure ill-treatment with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, 26 9considering the reproach of aChrist greater riches than the treasures of Egypt ; for he was looking to the 10reward. 27 By faith he 11left Egypt, not 12fearing the wrath of the king ; for he endured, as 13seeing Him who is unseen. 28 By faith he b14kept the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood, so that 15he who destroyed the firstborn would not touch them. 29 By faith they 16passed through the Red Sea as though they were passing through dry land ; and the Egyptians, when they attempted it, were cdrowned. 30 By faith 17the walls of Jericho fell down 18after they had been encircled for seven days. 31 By faith 19Rahab the harlot did not perish along with those who were disobedient, after she had welcomed the spies din peace. 32 And what more shall I say ? For time will fail me if I tell of 20Gideon, 21Barak, 22Samson, 23Jephthah, of 24David and 25Samuel and the prophets, 33 who by faith 26conquered kingdoms, 27performed acts of righteousness, 28obtained promises, 29shut the mouths of lions, 34 30quenched the power of fire, 31escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, 32became mighty in war, 33put foreign armies to flight. 35 34Women received back their dead by resurrection ; and others were tortured, not accepting their erelease, so that they might obtain a better resurrection ; 36 and others fexperienced mockings and scourgings, yes, also 35chains and imprisonment. 37 They were 36stoned, they were 37sawn in two, gthey were tempted, they were 38put to death with the sword ; they went about 39in sheepskins, in goatskins , being destitute, afflicted, 40ill-treated 38 (men of whom the world was not worthy ), 41wandering in deserts and mountains and caves and holes hin the ground. 39 And all these, having i42gained approval through their faith, 43did not receive jwhat was promised, 40 because God had kprovided 44something better for us, so that 45apart from us they would not be made perfect.
