Hebrews 11:8–16

By faith bAbraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he csojourned in the land dof promise, as in a strange country, edwelling in tabernacles fwith Isaac and Jacob, gthe heirs with him of the same promise: 10 For he looked for ha city iwhich hath foundations, kwhose builder and maker is God. 11 Through faith also lSara herself received strength to conceive seed, and mwas delivered of a child when she was past age, nbecause she judged ohim faithful pwho had promised. 12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him qas good as dead, so many rsas the stars of the sky in multitude, and sas the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable. 13 These all died in faith, tnot having received the promises, but uhaving seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and vembraced them, and wconfessed that they were xstrangers and ypilgrims on the earth. 14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. 15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 16 But now they desire za better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore zzGod is not ashamed ato be called their God: for he hath bprepared for them ca city.
