Hebrews 11

ASV 1 Now faith is assurance of [things] hoped for, a conviction of things not seen. NIV 1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. ASV 2 For therein the elders had witness borne to them. NIV 2 This is what the ancients were commended for. ASV 3 By faith we understand that the worlds have been framed by the word of God, so that what is seen hath not been made out of things which appear. NIV 3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. ASV 4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he had witness borne to him that he was righteous, God bearing witness in respect of his gifts: and through it he being dead yet speaketh. NIV 4 By faith Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did. By faith he was commended as a righteous man, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith he still speaks, even though he is dead. ASV 5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and he was not found, because God translated him: for he hath had witness borne to him that before his translation he had been well-pleasing unto God: NIV 5 By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death; he could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. ASV 6 And without faith it is impossible to be well-pleasing [unto him]; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that seek after him. NIV 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. ASV 7 By faith Noah, being warned [of God] concerning things not seen as yet, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; through which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith. NIV 7 By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.

NIV 8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. ASV 9 By faith he became a sojourner 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: NIV 9 By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. ASV 10 for he looked for the city which hath the foundations, whose builder and maker is God. NIV 10 For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. ASV 11 By faith even Sarah herself received power to conceive seed when she was past age, since she counted him faithful who had promised: NIV 11 By faith Abraham, even though he was past age--and Sarah herself was barren--was enabled to become a father because he considered him faithful who had made the promise. ASV 12 wherefore also there sprang of one, and him as good as dead, [so many] as the stars of heaven in multitude, and as the sand, which is by the sea-shore, innumerable. NIV 12 And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore. ASV 13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. NIV 13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth. ASV 14 For they that say such things make it manifest that they are seeking after a country of their own. NIV 14 People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. ASV 15 And if indeed they had been mindful of that [country] from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return. NIV 15 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. ASV 16 But now they desire a better [country], that is, a heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed of them, to be called their God; for he hath prepared for them a city. NIV 16 Instead, they were longing for a better country--a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them. ASV 17 By faith Abraham, being tried, offered up Isaac: yea, he that had gladly received the promises was offering up his only begotten [son]; NIV 17 By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had received the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, ASV 18 even he to whom it was said, In Isaac shall thy seed be called: NIV 18 even though God had said to him, "It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned." ASV 19 accounting that God [is] able to raise up, even from the dead; from whence he did also in a figure receive him back. NIV 19 Abraham reasoned that God could raise the dead, and figuratively speaking, he did receive Isaac back from death. ASV 20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau, even concerning things to come.
