Without faith we, cannot please God.

38 Now 'the just shall live by faith : but
if any man draw back, my soul shall have
no pleasure in him.

39 But we are not of them ''who draw
back unto perdition; but of them that 'be-
lieve to the saving of the soul.

CHAP. XL

1 What faith is. 6 Without faith we cannot please
God. 7 The worthy fruits thereof in the fathers of
old time.

"VrOW faith is the || substance of things
W hoped for, the evidence "of things not
seen :

2 For ''by it the elders obtained a good
report.

3 Through faith we understand that " the
worlds were framed by the word of God,
so that things which are seen were not made
of things which do appear. * ■

4 By faith ^ Abel offered unto God a more
excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he
obtained witness that he was righteous, God
testifying of his gifts .: and by it he being
dead « ||yet speaketh.

5 By faith *■ Enoch was translated, that he
should not see death ; and was not found,
because God had translated him : for before
his translation he had this testimony, that
he pleased God.

6 But without faith it is impossible tD
please him : for he that cometh to God must
believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder
of them that diligently seek him.

7 By faith e Noah, being warned of God
of things not seen as yet, || moved with
fear, ''prepared an ark to the saving of his
house ; by the which he condemned the
world, and became heir of 'the righteousness
which is by faith.

8 By faith ''Abraham, when he was called
to go out into a place which he should after
receive for an inheritance, obeyed ; and he
went out not knowing whither he went.

9 By faith he sojourned in the land of
promise, as in a strange country, ' dwelling
in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, ■" the
heirs with him of the same promise :

10 For he looked for a "city which hath
foundations, "whose builder and maker is
God.

11 Through faith also p Sara herself re-
ceived strength to conceive seed, and i was
delivered of a child when she was past age,
because she judged him "^ faithful who had
promised.

12 Therefore sprang there even of one,
and ^ him as good as dead, * so many as the
stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand
which is by the sea-shore innumerable.

1009



The nature of faith, and

13 These all died fin faith, "not having
received the promises, but ^having seen them
afar off, and were persuaded of tliem, and
embraced them, and y confessed that they
were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

14 For they that say such things ^ declare
plainly that they seek a country.

15 And truly, if they had been mindful
of that country from whence they came out,
they might have had opportunity to have re-
turned.

16 But now they desire a better country,
that is, an heavenly : wherefore God is not
ashamed '^ to be called their God : for '' he
hath prepared for them a city.

17 By faith '' Abraham, when he was
tried, offered up Isaac : and he that had
received the promises ^ offered up his only-
begotten son,

18 II Of whom it was said, ^That in Isaac
shall tiiy seed be called :

19 Accounting that God ^was able to raise
him up, even from the dead ; from whence
also he received him in a figure.

20 By faith ? Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau
concerning things to come.

21 By faith Jacob, when he was a dying,
^ blessed both the sons of Joseph ; and
' worshipped, leaning upon the top of his
staff.

22 By faith ■= Joseph, when he died, || made
mention of the departing of the children of
Israel ; and gave commandment concerning
his bones.

23 By faith ■ Moses, when he was born,
was hid three months of his parents, be-
cause they saw he was a proper child ; and
they were not afraid of the king's ■" com-
mandment.

24 By faith ° Moses, when he was come
to years, refused to be called the son of
Pharaoh's daughter; '

25 ° Choosing rather to suffer affliction
with the people of God, than to enjoy the
pleasures of sin for a season ;

26 Esteeming p the reproach || of Christ
greater riches than the treasures in Egypt :
for he had respect unto ithe recompense of
the reward.

27 By faith ■'he forsook Egypt, not fear-
ing the wrath of the king: for he endured,
as = seeing him who is invisible.

28 Through faith *he kept the passover,
and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that de-
stroyed the first-born should touch them.

29 By faith "they passed through the Red
sea as by dry land : which the Egyptians
assaying to do were drowned.

30 By faith "the walls of Jericho fell down,
after they were compassed about seven days.

its acceptableness'with God.

31 By faith ythe harlot Rahab perished
not with them || that believed not, when
^ she had received the spies with peace.

32 And what shall I more say ? for the
time would fail me to tell of * Gedeon, and
of ■'Barak, and of <=Samson, and of^Jeph-
thae, of <= David also, and '" Samuel, and of
the prophets :

33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms,
wrought righteousness, s obtained promises,
^ stopped the mouths of lions,

34 "Quenched the violence of fire, ''escaped
the edge of the sword, 'out of weakness were
made strong, waxed valiant in fight, " turned
to flight the armies of the aliens.

35 " Women received their dead raised to
life again : and others were " tortured, not
accepting deliverance ; that they might obtain
a better resurrection :

36 And others had trial of cruel mock-
ings and scourgings, yea, moreover ? of bonds
and imprisonment :

37 "^ They were stoned, they were sawn
asunder, were tempted, were slain with the
sword: Hhey wandered about 'in sheep-skins
and goat-skins ; being destitute, afflicted, tor-
mented ;

38 (Of whom the world was not worthy :)
they wandered in deserts, and in mountains,
and "m dens and caves of the earth.

39 And these all, "having obtained a good
report through faith, received not the pro-
mise:

40 God having || provided y some better
thing for us, that they without us should
not be '^ made perfect.

CHAP. XII.

1 An exhortation to constant faith, patience, and godli-
liness. 22 A commendation of the new testament above
the old.

WHEREFORE, seeing we also are
compassed about with so great a cloud
of witnesses, * let us lay aside every weight,
and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and
^ let us run '=with patience the race that is set
before us,

2 Looking unto Jesus the || author and
finisher of our faith ; ^who, for the joy that
was set before him, endured the cross, de-
spising the shame, and •= is set down at the
right hand of the throne of God.

3 ^For consider him that endured such
contradiction of sinners against himself, g lest
ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

4 ''Ye have not yet resisted unto blood,
striving against sin.

5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation
which speaketh unto you as unto children,
'My son, despise not thou the chastening

An exhortation to patience and constancy. CHAP. XIII. A commendation of the new testament, H.

■•and unto the city of the living God, the
heavenly Jerusalem, ' and to an innumerable
company of angels,

23 To the general assembly and church of
■"the first-born, "which are || written in heaven,
and to God « the Judge of all, and to the
spirits of just men Pmade perfect,

24 And to Jesus ithe Mediator of the
new II covenant, and to ■'the blood of sprink-
ling, that speaketh better things = than that
o/"Abel.

25 See that ye refuse not him that speak-
eth. For 'if they escaped not who refused
him that spake on earth, much more shall not
we escape, if we turn away from him that
speaketh from heaven :

26 "Whose voice then shook the earth:
but now he hath promised, saying, ^Yet
once more I shake not the earth only, but
also heaven.

27 And this word, Yet once more, signi-
fieth ythe removing of those things that
II are shaken, as of things that are made,
that those things which cannot be shaken
may remain.

28 Wherefore we receiving a kmgdom
which cannot be moved, || let us have grace,
whereby we may serve God acceptably, with
reverence and god[ly fear ;

29 For ^our God is a consuming fire.



of the Lord, nor faint when thou art re-
buked of him :

6 For ''whom the Lord loveth he chasten-
eth, and scourgoth every son whom he re-
ceiveth.

7 'If ye endure chastening, God dealeth
with you as with sons : for what son is he
whom the father chasteneth not ?

8 But if ye be without chastisement,
"whereof all are partakers, then are ye
bastards, and not sons.

9 Furthermore, we have had fathers of
our flesh which corrected us, and we gave
them reverence : shall we not much rather
be in subjection unto " the Father of spirits,
and live?

10 For they verily for a few days chastened
us II after their own pleasure ; but he for our
profit, "that we might be partakers of tjis
holiness.

11 Now no chastening for the present
seemeth to be joyous, but grievous : never-
theless, afterward it yieldeth p the peaceable
fruit of righteousness unto them which are
exercised thereby.

12 Wherefore ^ lift up the hands which
hang down, and the feeble knees ;

13 'And make || straight paths for your
feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of
the way; "but let it rather be healed.

14 'Follow peace with all men, and
holiness, "without which no man shall see
the Lord :

15 'Looking diligently, ylest any man
II fail of the grace of God ; '■ lest any root
of bitterness springing up, trouble you, and
thereby many be defiled ;

16 "Lest there he any fornicator, or pro-
fane person, as Esau, '■ who for one morsel
of meat sold his birthright.

17 For ye know how that afterward,
•= when he would have inherited the blessing,
he was rejected : ^ for he found no || place
of repentance, though he sought it carefully
with tears.

18 For ye are not come unto the * mount
that might be touched, and that burned
with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness,
and tempest,

19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the
voice of words; which voice they that
heard, ^ entreated that the word should not
be spoken to them any more :

20 (For they could not endure that which
was commanded, e And if so much as a beast
touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or
thrust through with a dart :

21 ''And so terrible was the sight, that
Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake :)

22 But ye are come 'unto mount Sion,

1 Divers admonitions, as to charity, 4 to honest life,
5 to avoid covetousness, 7 to regard God's preachers,
9 to take heed of strange doctrines, 10 to confess Christ,
16 to give aims, 17 to obey governor.^, IS to pray for
the apostle. 20 The conclusion.

LET "brotherly love continue.
2 '•Be not forgetful to entertain stran-
gers : for thereby •= some have entertained
angels unawares.

3 '' Remember them that are in bonds, as
bound with them; and them which suffer
adversity, as being yourselves also in the
body.

4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the
bed undefiled: ^ but whoremongers and adul-
terers God will judge.

5 Let your conversation he without covet-
ousness; and ^he content with such things
as ye have : for he hath said, s I will never
leave thee, nor forsake thee.

6 So that we may boldly say, ''The Lord
is my helper, and I will not fear what man
shall do unto me.

7 ' Remember them which || have the rule
over you, who have spoken unto you the
word of God : •'whose faith follow, consider-
ing the end of their conversation :

8 Jesus Christ 'the same yesterday, and
to-day, and for ever.

^ 1011



Divers exhortations.

9 " Be not carried about with divers and
strange doctrines: for it is a good thing
that the heart be estabhshed with grace ;
" not with meats, which have not profited
them that have been occupied therein.

10 °We have an altar, whereof they have
no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.

11 For P the bodies of those beasts, whose
blood is brought into the sanctuary by the
high priest for sin, are burned without the
camp.

12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might
sanctify the people with his own blood,
"i suffered without the gate.

13 Let us go forth therefore unto him
without the camp, bearing 'his reproach.

14 = For here have we no continuing city,
but we seek one to come.

15 *By him therefore let us offer "the
sacrifice of praise to God continually, that
is, ^the fruit of our lips, t giving thanks to
his name.

16 yBut to do good, and to communicate,
forget not : for ^ with such sacrifices God is
well pleased.

17 ^Obey them that || have the rule over
you, and submit yourselves : for ''they watch
for your souls, as they that must give account,

Exhortation to pray for the apostle.

that they may do it with joy, and not with
grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

18 ''Pray for us: for we trust we have
^ a good conscience, in all things wilhng to
live honestly. •

19 But I beseech you «the rather to do this,
that I may be restored to you the sooner.

20 Now ^the God of peace, sthat brought
again from the dead our Lord Jesus, ''that
great Shepherd of the sheep, ' through the
blood of the everlasting || covenant,

21 ''Make you perfect in every good work,
to do his will, || 'working in you that which
is well-pleasing in his sight, through Jesus
Christ; "to whom he glory for ever and
ever. Amen.

22 And I beseech you, brethren, suffer the
word of exhortation : for ° I have written
a letter unto you in few words.

.23 Know ye, that ° our brother Timothy
Pis set at liberty; with whom, if he come
shortly, I will see you.

24 Salute all them i that have the rule
over you, and all the saints. They of Italy
salute you.

25 "^ Grace he with you all. Amen.

CHAP. L

1 We are to rejoice under the cross, 5 to ask patience of
God, 13 and in our trials not to impute.our weakness,
or sins, unto him, 19 lut rather to hearken to the word,
to meditate in it, and to do thereafter : 26 otherwise
men mayseem, but never be truly religious.

\ TAMES, •'a servant of God and of the
fj Lord Jesus Christ, " to the twelve tribes
''which are scattered abroad, greeting.

2 My brethren, « count it all joy ''when ye
fall into divers temptations ;

3 s Knowing this, that the trying of your
faith worketh patience.

4 But let patience have her perfect work,
that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting
nothing.

5 •'If any of you lack wisdom, "let him
ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally,
and upbraideth not ; and '' it shall be given
him.

6 'But let him ask in faith, nothing waver-
ing. For he that wavereth is like a wave of
the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

receive any thing of the Lord.

8 "A double-minded man is unstable in
all his ways.

9 Let the brother of low degree || rejoice
in that he is exalted :

10 But the rich, in that he is made low :
because " as the flower of the grass he shall
pass' away.

11 For the sun is no sooner risen with
a burning heat, but it withereth the grass,
and the flower thereof falleth, and the
grace of the fashion of it perisheth : so also
shall the rich man fade away in- his ways.

12 "Bles^d is the man that endureth
temptation: for when he is tried, he shall
receive p the crown of life, i which the Lord
hath promised to them that love him.

13 Let no man say when he is tempted,
I am tempted of God : for God cannot be
tempted with |1 evil, neither tempteth he any
man :

14 But every man is tempted, when he is
drawn away of his own lyst, and enticed.

15 Then, ■• when lust hath conceived, it
bringeth forth sin ; and sin, when it is finish-
ed, 'bringeth forth death.

16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.

gift is from above, and cometh down from
