Hebrews 11 (ASV)
 Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, a conviction of things not seen.
 For therein the elders had witness borne to them.
 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.
 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.
 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:
 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.
 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.
 By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed to go out unto a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
 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:
 for he looked for the city which hath the foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
 By faith even Sarah herself received power to conceive seed when she was past age, since she counted him faithful who had promised:
 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.
 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.
 For they that say such things make it manifest that they are seeking after a country of their own.
 And if indeed they had been mindful of that country from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return.
 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.
 By faith Abraham, being tried, offered up Isaac: yea, he that had gladly received the promises was offering up his only begotten son;
 even he to whom it was said, In Isaac shall thy seed be called:
 accounting that God is able to raise up, even from the dead; from whence he did also in a figure receive him back.
 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau, even concerning things to come.
 By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.
 By faith Joseph, when his end was nigh, made mention of the departure of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.
 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months by his parents, because they saw he was a goodly child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment.
 By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharoah’s daughter;
 choosing rather to share ill treatment with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
 accounting the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt: for he looked unto the recompense of reward.
 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
 By faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of the blood, that the destroyer of the firstborn should not touch them.
 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were swallowed up.
 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they had been compassed about for seven days.
 By faith Rahab the harlot perished not with them that were disobedient, having received the spies with peace.
 And what shall I more say? for the time will fail me if I tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah; of David and Samuel and the prophets:
 who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
 quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, waxed mighty in war, turned to flight armies of aliens.
 Women received their dead by a resurrection: and others were tortured, not accepting their deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
 and others had trial of mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
 they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, they were tempted, they were slain with the sword: they went about in sheepskins, in goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated
 (of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts and mountains and caves, and the holes of the earth.
 And these all, having had witness borne to them through their faith, received not the promise,
 God having provided some better thing concerning us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.
King James w/Strong’s #s
Hebrews 11 (KJVS)
 Now G1161 faith G4102 is G2076 (PresInd) the substance G5287 of things hoped for G1679 (PresPasPtc), the evidence G1650 of things G4229 not G3756 seen G991 (PresPasPtc).
 For G1063 by G1722 it G5026 the elders G4245 obtained a good report G3140 (AorPasInd).
 Through faith G4102 we understand G3539 (PresActInd) that the worlds G165 were framed G2675 (PerfPasInf) by the word G4487 of God G2316, so G1519 that things which G3588 are seen G991 (PresPasPtc) were G1096 not G3361 made G1096 (Perf2ActInf) of G1537 things which do appear G5316 (PresMidPasPtc).
 By faith G4102 Abel G6 offered G4374 (AorActInd) unto God G2316 a more excellent G4119 sacrifice G2378 than G3844 Cain G2535, by G1223 which G3739 he obtained witness G3140 (AorPasInd) that he was G1511 (PresInf) righteous G1342, God G2316 testifying G3140 (PresActPtc) of G1909 his G846 gifts G1435: and G2532 by G1223 it G846 he being dead G599 (Aor2ActPtc) yet G2089 speaketh G2980 (PresMidInd) G2980 (PresActInd).
 By faith G4102 Enoch G1802 was translated G3346 (AorPasInd) that he should G1492 not G3361 see G1492 (Aor2ActInf) death G2288; and G2532 was G2147 not G3756 found G2147 (ImpfPasInd), because G1360 God G2316 had translated G3346 (AorActInd) him G846: for G1063 before G4253 his G846 translation G3331 he had this testimony G3140 (PerfPasInd), that he pleased G2100 (PerfActInf) God G2316.
 But G1161 without G5565 faith G4102 [it is] impossible G102 to please G2100 (AorActInf) [him]: for G1063 he that cometh G4334 (PresMidPasDepPtc) to God G2316 must G1163 (PresInd) believe G4100 (AorActInf) that G3754 he is G2076 (PresInd), and G2532 [that] he is G1096 (PresMidPasDepInd) a rewarder G3406 of them that diligently seek G1567 (PresActPtc) him G846.
 By faith G4102 Noah G3575, being warned of God G5537 (AorPasPtc) of G4012 things not G3369 seen G991 (PresPasPtc) as yet G3369, moved with fear G2125 (AorPasPtc), prepared G2680 (AorActInd) an ark G2787 to G1519 the saving G4991 of his G846 house G3624; by G1223 the which G3739 he condemned G2632 (AorActInd) the world G2889, and G2532 became G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) heir G2818 of the righteousness G1343 which is by G2596 faith G4102.
 By faith G4102 Abraham G11, when he was called G2564 (PresPasPtc) to go out G1831 (Aor2ActInf) into G1519 a place G5117 which G3739 he should after G3195 (ImpfActInd) receive G2983 (PresActInf) for G1519 an inheritance G2817, obeyed G5219 (AorActInd); and G2532 he went out G1831 (Aor2ActInd), not G3361 knowing G1987 (PresMidPasDepPtc) whither G4226 he went G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd).
 By faith G4102 he sojourned G3939 (AorActInd) in G1519 the land G1093 of promise G1860, as G5613 [in] a strange country G245, dwelling G2730 (AorActPtc) in G1722 tabernacles G4633 with G3326 Isaac G2464 and G2532 Jacob G2384, the heirs with him G4789 of the same G846 promise G1860:
 For G1063 he looked for G1551 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) a city G4172 which hath G2192 (PresActPtc) foundations G2310, whose G3739 builder G5079 and G2532 maker G1217 [is] God G2316.
 Through faith G4102 also G2532 Sara G4564 herself G846 received G2983 (Aor2ActInd) strength G1411 to G1519 conceive G2602 seed G4690, and G2532 was delivered of a child G5088 (Aor2ActInd) when she was past G3844 age G2540 G2244, because G1893 she judged G2233 (AorMidDepInd) him faithful G4103 who had promised G1861 (AorMidDepPtc).
 Therefore G1352 sprang there G1080 (AorPasInd) even G2532 of G575 one G1520, and G2532 him G5023 as good as dead G3499 (PerfPasPtc), [so many] as G2531 the stars G798 of the sky G3772 in multitude G4128, and G2532 as G5616 the sand G285 which G3588 is by G3844 the sea G2281 shore G5491 innumerable G382.
 These G3778 all G3956 died G599 (Aor2ActInd) in G2596 faith G4102, not G3361 having received G2983 (Aor2ActPtc) the promises G1860, but G235 having seen G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) them G846 afar off G4207, and G2532 were persuaded of G3982 (AorPasPtc) [them], and G2532 embraced G782 (AorMidDepPtc) [them], and G2532 confessed G3670 (AorActPtc) that G3754 they were G1526 (PresInd) strangers G3581 and G2532 pilgrims G3927 on G1909 the earth G1093.
 For G1063 they that say G3004 (PresActPtc) such things G5108 declare plainly G1718 (PresActInd) that G3754 they seek G1934 (PresActInd) a country G3968.
 And G2532 truly G3303, if G1487 they had been mindful G3421 (ImpfActInd) of that G1565 [country] from G575 whence G3739 they came out G1831 (Aor2ActInd), they might G302 have had G2192 (ImpfActInd) opportunity G2540 to have returned G344 (AorActInf).
 But G1161 now G3570 they desire G3713 (PresMidPtc) a better G2909 [country], that is G5123 (PresInd), an heavenly G2032: wherefore G1352 God G2316 is G1870 not G3756 ashamed G1870 (PresMidPasDepInd) G846 to be called G1941 (PresPasInf) their G846 God G2316: for G1063 he hath prepared G2090 (AorActInd) for them G846 a city G4172.
 By faith G4102 Abraham G11, when he was tried G3985 (PresPasPtc), offered up G4374 (Perf2ActInd) Isaac G2464: and G2532 he that had received G324 (AorMidDepPtc) the promises G1860 offered up G4374 (ImpfActInd) his only begotten G3439 [son],
 Of G4314 whom G3739 it was said G2980 (AorPasInd), That G3754 in G1722 Isaac G2464 shall G2564 thy G4671 seed G4690 be called G2564 (FutPasInd):
 Accounting G3049 (AorMidDepPtc) that G3754 God G2316 [was] able G1415 to raise [him] up G1453 (PresActInf), even G2532 from G1537 the dead G3498; from whence G3606 also G2532 he received G2865 (AorMidInd) him G846 in G1722 a figure G3850.
 By faith G4102 Isaac G2464 blessed G2127 (AorActInd) Jacob G2384 and G2532 Esau G2269 concerning G4012 things to come G3195 (PresActPtc).
 By faith G4102 Jacob G2384, when he was a dying G599 (PresActPtc), blessed G2127 (AorActInd) both G1538 the sons G5207 of Joseph G2501; and G2532 worshipped G4352 (AorActInd), [leaning] upon G1909 the top G206 of his G846 staff G4464.
 By faith G4102 Joseph G2501, when he died G5053 (PresActPtc), made mention G3421 (AorActInd) of G4012 the departing G1841 of the children G5207 of Israel G2474; and G2532 gave commandment G1781 (AorMidDepInd) concerning G4012 his G846 bones G3747.
 By faith G4102 Moses G3475, when he was born G1080 (AorPasPtc), was hid G2928 (Aor2PasDepSubj) three months G5150 of G5259 his G846 parents G3962, because G1360 they saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) [he was] a proper G791 child G3813; and G2532 they were G5399 not G3756 afraid G5399 (AorPasDepInd) of the king’s G935 commandment G1297.
 By faith G4102 Moses G3475, when he was come G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) to years G3173, refused G720 (AorMidDepInd) to be called G3004 (PresPasInf) the son G5207 of Pharaoh’s G5328 daughter G2364;
 Choosing G138 (Aor2MidPtc) rather G3123 to suffer affliction G4778 (PresMidPasDepInf) with the people G2992 of God G2316, than G2228 to enjoy the pleasures G2192 (PresActInf) G619 of sin G266 for a season G4340;
 Esteeming G2233 the reproach G3680 of Christ G5547 greater G3187 riches G4149 than G2233 (AorMidDepPtc) the treasures G2344 in G1722 Egypt G125: for G1063 he had respect G578 (ImpfActInd) unto G1519 the recompence of the reward G3405.
 By faith G4102 he forsook G2641 (Aor2ActInd) Egypt G125, not G3361 fearing G5399 (AorPasDepPtc) the wrath G2372 of the king G935: for G1063 he endured G2594 (AorActInd), as G5613 seeing G3708 (PresActPtc) him who is invisible G517.
 Through faith G4102 he kept G4160 (PerfActInd) the passover G3957, and G2532 the sprinkling G4378 of blood G129, lest G3363 he that destroyed G3645 (PresActPtc) the firstborn G4416 should touch G2345 (Aor2ActSubj) them G846.
 By faith G4102 they passed through G1224 (Aor2ActInd) the Red G2063 sea G2281 as G5613 by G1223 dry G3584 [land]: which G3739 the Egyptians G124 assaying G3984 to do G2983 (Aor2ActPtc) were drowned G2666 (AorPasInd).
 By faith G4102 the walls G5038 of Jericho G2410 fell down G4098 (Aor2ActInd), after they were compassed G2944 (AorPasPtc) about G1909 seven G2033 days G2250.
 By faith G4102 the harlot G4204 Rahab G4460 perished G4881 (Aor2MidInd) not G3756 with them that believed not G544 (AorActPtc), when she had received G1209 (AorMidDepPtc) the spies G2685 with G3326 peace G1515.
 And G2532 what G5101 shall I G3004 more G2089 say G3004 (PresActSubj)? for G1063 the time G5550 would fail G1952 (FutActInd) me G3165 to tell G1334 (PresMidPasDepPtc) of G4012 Gedeon G1066, and G5037 [of] Barak G913, and G2532 [of] Samson G4546, and G2532 [of] Jephthae G2422; [of] David G1138 also G2532, and G5037 Samuel G4545, and G2532 [of] the prophets G4396:
 Who G3739 through G1223 faith G4102 subdued G2610 (AorMidDepInd) kingdoms G932, wrought G2038 (AorMidDepInd) righteousness G1343, obtained G2013 (Aor2ActInd) promises G1860, stopped G5420 (AorActInd) the mouths G4750 of lions G3023,
 Quenched G4570 (AorActInd) the violence G1411 of fire G4442, escaped G5343 (Aor2ActInd) the edge G4750 of the sword G3162, out of G575 weakness G769 were made strong G1743 (AorPasInd), waxed G1096 (AorPasDepInd) valiant G2478 in G1722 fight G4171, turned to flight G2827 (AorActInd) the armies G3925 of the aliens G245.
 Women G1135 received G2983 (Aor2ActInd) their G846 dead G3498 raised to life again G1537 G386: and G1161 others G243 were tortured G5178 (AorPasInd), not G3756 accepting G4327 (AorMidDepPtc) deliverance G629; that G2443 they might obtain G5177 (Aor2ActSubj) a better G2909 resurrection G386:
 And G1161 others G2087 had G2983 (Aor2ActInd) trial G3984 of [cruel] mockings G1701 and G2532 scourgings G3148, yea G1161, moreover G2089 of bonds G1199 and G2532 imprisonment G5438:
 They were stoned G3034 (AorPasInd), they were sawn asunder G4249 (AorPasInd), were tempted G3985 (AorPasInd), were slain G599 (Aor2ActInd) with G1722 the sword G5408 G3162: they wandered about G4022 (Aor2ActInd) in G1722 sheepskins G3374 and G1722 goatskins G122 G1192; being destitute G5302 (PresPasPtc), afflicted G2346 (PresPasPtc), tormented G2558 (PresPasPtc);
 (Of whom G3739 the world G2889 was G2258 (ImpfInd) not G3756 worthy G514:) they wandered G4105 (PresPasPtc) in G1722 deserts G2047, and G2532 [in] mountains G3735, and G2532 [in] dens G4693 and G2532 caves G3692 of the earth G1093.
 And G2532 these G3778 all G3956, having obtained a good report G3140 (AorPasPtc) through G1223 faith G4102, received G2865 (AorMidInd) not G3756 the promise G1860:
 God G2316 having provided G4265 (AorMidPtc) some G5100 better G2909 thing G5100 for G4012 us G2257, that G3363 they G5048 without G5565 us G2257 should G5048 not G3363 be made perfect G5048 (AorPasSubj).
Young’s Literal Translation
Hebrews 11 (YLT)
 And faith is of things hoped for a confidence, of matters not seen a conviction,
 for in this were the elders testified of;
 by faith we understand the ages to have been prepared by a saying of God, in regard to the things seen not having come out of things appearing;
 by faith a better sacrifice did Abel offer to God than Cain, through which he was testified to be righteous, God testifying of his gifts, and through it, he being dead, doth yet speak.
 By faith Enoch was translated-not to see death, and was not found, because God did translate him; for before his translation he had been testified to-that he had pleased God well,
 and apart from faith it is impossible to please well, for it behoveth him who is coming to God to believe that He is, and to those seeking Him He becometh a rewarder.
 By faith Noah, having been divinely warned concerning the things not yet seen, having feared, did prepare an ark to the salvation of his house, through which he did condemn the world, and of the righteousness according to faith he became heir.
 By faith Abraham, being called, did obey, to go forth to the place that he was about to receive for an inheritance, and he went forth, not knowing whither he doth go;
 by faith he did sojourn in the land of the promise as a strange country, in tabernacles having dwelt with Isaac and Jacob, fellow-heirs of the same promise,
 for he was looking for the city having the foundations, whose artificer and constructor is God.
 By faith also Sarah herself did receive power to conceive seed, and she bare after the time of life, seeing she did judge Him faithful who did promise;
 wherefore, also from one were begotten-and that of one who had become dead-as the stars of the heaven in multitude, and as sand that is by the sea-shore-the innumerable.
 In faith died all these, not having received the promises, but from afar having seen them, and having been persuaded, and having saluted them, and having confessed that strangers and sojourners they are upon the earth,
 for those saying such things make manifest that they seek a country;
 and if, indeed, they had been mindful of that from which they came forth, they might have had an opportunity to return,
 but now they long for a better, that is, an heavenly, wherefore God is not ashamed of them, to be called their God, for He did prepare for them a city.
 By faith Abraham hath offered up Isaac, being tried, and the only begotten he did offer up who did receive the promises,
 of whom it was said-‘In Isaac shall a seed be called to thee;’
 reckoning that even out of the dead God is able to raise up, whence also in a figure he did receive him.
 By faith, concerning coming things, Isaac did bless Jacob and Esau;
 by faith Jacob dying-each of the sons of Joseph did bless, and did bow down upon the top of his staff;
 by faith, Joseph dying, concerning the outgoing of the sons of Israel did make mention, and concerning his bones did give command.
 By faith Moses, having been born, was hid three months by his parents, because they saw the child comely, and were not afraid of the decree of the king;
 by faith Moses, having become great, did refuse to be called a son of the daughter of Pharaoh,
 having chosen rather to be afflicted with the people of God, than to have sin’s pleasure for a season,
 greater wealth having reckoned the reproach of the Christ than the treasures in Egypt, for he did look to the recompense of reward;
 by faith he left Egypt behind, not having been afraid of the wrath of the king, for, as seeing the Invisible One-he endured;
 by faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of the blood, that He who is destroying the first-born might not touch them.
 By faith they did pass through the Red Sea as through dry land, which the Egyptians having received a trial of, were swallowed up;
 by faith the walls of Jericho did fall, having been surrounded for seven days;
 by faith Rahab the harlot did not perish with those who disbelieved, having received the spies with peace.
 And what shall I yet say? for the time will fail me recounting about Gideon, Barak also, and Samson, and Jephthah, David also, and Samuel, and the prophets,
 who through faith did subdue kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped mouths of lions,
 quenched the power of fire, escaped the mouth of the sword, were made powerful out of infirmities, became strong in battle, caused to give way camps of the aliens.
 Women received by a rising again their dead, and others were tortured, not accepting the redemption, that a better rising again they might receive,
 and others of mockings and scourgings did receive trial, and yet of bonds and imprisonment;
 they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, they were tried; in the killing of the sword they died; they went about in sheepskins, in goatskins-being destitute, afflicted, injuriously treated,
 of whom the world was not worthy; in deserts wandering, and in mountains, and in caves, and in the holes of the earth;
 and these all, having been testified to through the faith, did not receive the promise,
 God for us something better having provided, that apart from us they might not be made perfect.
