Hebrews 11:32-11:40

32. And what still may I say?

                For the time will fail me giving an account concerning Gideon,
                Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, as well as Samuel and the prophets,

                                33. who through faith conquered kingdoms, worked rightouesness,
                                obtained promises,

                                                shut the mouths of lions,
                                                34. quenched the power of fire, fled the mouths of the sword,
                                                they were empowered from weakness,
                                                they became strong in battle, they laid low the camps of others.

                                                                35. Women received

                                                                                their dead from resurrection.

                                                                                                But some were tortured, not accepting deliverance,

                                                                                that they might obtain a better resurrection.

                                                                36. But others received a trial of scorns and scourgings,
                                                                and even of chains and imprisonment.

                                                37. They were stoned, they were sawed in two, they died in murder by a sword;
                                                they went about in sheepskins, in goatskins,
                                                being in need, being afflicted, being maltreated.
                                                38. The world was not worthy of them;
                                                they were wandering over deserts and mountains and caves and the crevices of the earth.

                                39. And these all, testified through the faith, did not acquire the promise.

                40. God concerning us,

providing something better, that they would not be made perfect without us.
