Bible: Hebrews 11:7-12

11:7 By faith Noah, when he was warned about things not yet seen, with reverent regard 1  constructed an ark for the deliverance of his family. Through faith he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.

11:8 By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place he would later receive as an inheritance, and he went out without understanding where he was going. 11:9 By faith he lived as a foreigner 2  in the promised land as though it were a foreign country, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, who were fellow heirs 3  of the same promise. 11:10 For he was looking forward to the city with firm foundations, 4  whose architect and builder is God. 11:11 By faith, even though Sarah herself was barren and he was too old, 5  he received the ability to procreate, 6  because he regarded the one who had given the promise to be trustworthy. 11:12 So in fact children 7  were fathered by one man – and this one as good as deadlike the number of stars in the sky and like the innumerable grains of sand 8  on the seashore. 9
