Hebrews 11:39-40 New English Translation (NET Bible)

39 And these all were commended[a] for their faith, yet they did not receive what was promised.[b] 40 For God had provided something better for us, so that they would be made perfect together with us.[c]

Footnotes:

  1. Hebrews 11:39 sn The expression these all were commended forms an inclusio with Heb 11:2: The chapter begins and ends with references to commendation for faith.
  2. Hebrews 11:39 tn Grk “the promise,” referring to the thing God promised, not to the pledge itself.
  3. Hebrews 11:40 tn The Greek phrasing emphasizes this point by negating the opposite: “so that they would not be made perfect without us.”
