24 By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter.y 25 He chose to be mistreatedz along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. 26 He regarded disgracea for the sake of Christb as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward.c 27 By faith he left Egypt,d not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw him who is invisible. 28 By faith he kept the Passover and the application of blood, so that the destroyere of the firstborn would not touch the firstborn of Israel.f

29 By faith the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land; but when the Egyptians tried to do so, they were drowned.g

30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell, after the army had marched around them for seven days.h

31 By faith the prostitute Rahab, because she welcomed the spies, was not killed with those who were disobedient.d i

32 And what more shall I say? I do not have time to tell about Gideon,j Barak,k Samsonl and Jephthah,m about Davidn and Samuelo and the prophets, 33 who through faith conquered kingdoms,p administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions,q 34 quenched the fury of the flames,r and escaped the edge of the sword;s whose weakness was turned to strength;t and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies.u
