Bible: Hebrews 11:8-12

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 1  in the promised land as though it were a foreign country, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, who were fellow heirs 2  of the same promise. 11:10 For he was looking forward to the city with firm foundations, 3  whose architect and builder is God. 11:11 By faith, even though Sarah herself was barren and he was too old, 4  he received the ability to procreate, 5  because he regarded the one who had given the promise to be trustworthy. 11:12 So in fact children 6  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 7  on the seashore. 8
