By faith he dwelt in the land of promise, as a strange land, having dwelt in tents with Isaac and Jacob, co-heirs of the same promise: For he awaited a city having foundations, whose artificer and maker is God.

For they saying such things show clearly that they seek a country. And truly if they remembered that from which they came out, they had time to have returned. And now they feel an ardent desire for a better, that is, a heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed of them to be called their God: for he prepared for them a city.

By faith he has kept the pascha, and the pouring out of blood, lest he destroying the first born should touch them. By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians having tried were swallowed down. By faith the walls of Jericho fell, having been surrounded for seven days.

Women received their dead from rising up: and others were beaten, not receiving redemption; that they might attain a better resurrection. And others received trial of jestings and scourges, and further, of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were cut by sawing, they were tried, they died by the slaughter of the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being in want, pressed, treated ill; (Of whom the world was not worthy:) wandering about in solitary places, and mountains, and caves, and holes of the earth.

For he said somewhere of the seventh thus, And God ceased in the seventh day from all his works. And in this again, If they shall enter into my rest. Since therefore it remains for some to come into it, and they before announced of the good news came not in through unbelief: Again he limits a certain day, saying in David, To day, after such time; as it is said, To day if ye would hear his voice, harden not your hearts. For if Jesus had caused them to rest, he would not have spoken of another day after these things. Therefore a celebration of a sabbath remains to the people of God. For he having come into his rest, he also has ceased from his works, as God from his own. Therefore we should be earnest to come into that rest, lest any should fall in the same pattern of unbelief.
