8By faith he that is called Abraham obeyed to go out into a place which he was to receive for an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing whither he went.9By faith he abode in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in cottages, with Isaac and Jacob, the co-heirs of the same promise.10For he looked for a city that hath foundations: whose builder and maker is God.11By faith also Sara herself, being barren, received strength to conceive seed, even past the time of age: because she believed that he was faithful who had promised,12For which cause there sprung even from one (and him as good as dead) as the stars of heaven in multitude and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.13All these died according to faith, not having received the promises but beholding them afar off and saluting them and confessing that they are pilgrims and strangers on the earth.14For they that say these things do signify that they seek a country.15And truly, if they had been mindful of that from whence they came out, they had doubtless, time to return.16But now they desire a better, that is to say, a heavenly country. Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.17By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,18(To whom it was said: In Isaac shalt thy seed be called:)19Accounting that God is able to raise up even from the dead. Whereupon also he received him for a parable.
35And he saith to them that day, when evening was come: Let us pass over to the other side.36And sending away the multitude, they take him even as he was in the ship: and there were other ships with him.37And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that the ship was filled.38And he was in the hinder part of the ship, sleeping upon a pillow; and they awake him, and say to him: Master, doth, it not concern thee that we perish?39And rising up, he rebuked the wind, and said to the sea: Peace, be still. And the wind ceased: and there was made a great calm.40And he said to them: Why are you fearful? have you not faith yet?41(4-40) And they feared exceedingly: and they said one to another: Who is this (thinkest thou) that both wind and sea obey him?
