Hebreaid 11 Beibl William Morgan (BWM)
11 Ffydd yn wir yw sail y pethau yr ydys yn eu gobeithio, a sicrwydd y pethau nid ydys yn eu gweled. 2 Oblegid trwyddi hi y cafodd yr henuriaid air da. 3 Wrth ffydd yr ydym yn deall wneuthur y bydoedd trwy air Duw, yn gymaint nad o bethau gweledig y gwnaed y pethau a welir. 4 Trwy ffydd yr offrymodd Abel i Dduw aberth rhagorach na Chain; trwy yr hon y cafodd efe dystiolaeth ei fod yn gyfiawn, gan i Dduw ddwyn tystiolaeth i’w roddion ef: a thrwyddi hi y mae efe, wedi marw, yn llefaru eto. 5 Trwy ffydd y symudwyd Enoch, fel na welai farwolaeth; ac ni chaed ef, am ddarfod i Dduw ei symud ef: canys cyn ei symud, efe a gawsai dystiolaeth, ddarfod iddo ryngu bodd Duw. 6 Eithr heb ffydd amhosibl yw rhyngu ei fodd ef: oblegid rhaid yw i’r neb sydd yn dyfod at Dduw, gredu ei fod ef, a’i fod yn obrwywr i’r rhai sydd yn ei geisio ef. 7 Trwy ffydd, Noe, wedi ei rybuddio gan Dduw am y pethau nis gwelsid eto, gyda pharchedig ofn a ddarparodd arch i achub ei dŷ: trwy’r hon y condemniodd efe y byd, ac a wnaethpwyd yn etifedd y cyfiawnder sydd o ffydd. 8 Trwy ffydd, Abraham, pan ei galwyd, a ufuddhaodd, gan fyned i’r man yr oedd efe i’w dderbyn yn etifeddiaeth; ac a aeth allan, heb wybod i ba le yr oedd yn myned. 9 Trwy ffydd yr ymdeithiodd efe yn nhir yr addewid, megis mewn tir dieithr, gan drigo mewn lluestai gydag Isaac a Jacob, cyd‐etifeddion o’r un addewid: 10 Canys disgwyl yr ydoedd am ddinas ag iddi sylfeini, saer ac adeiladydd yr hon yw Duw. 11 Trwy ffydd Sara hithau yn amhlantadwy, a dderbyniodd nerth i ymddŵyn had; ac wedi amser oedran, a esgorodd; oblegid ffyddlon y barnodd hi yr hwn a addawsai. 12 Oherwydd paham hefyd y cenhedlwyd o un, a hwnnw yn gystal â marw, cynifer â sêr y nef mewn lliaws, ac megis y tywod ar lan y môr, y sydd yn aneirif. 13 Mewn ffydd y bu farw’r rhai hyn oll, heb dderbyn yr addewidion, eithr o bell eu gweled hwynt, a chredu, a chyfarch, a chyfaddef mai dieithriaid a phererinion oeddynt ar y ddaear. 14 Canys y mae’r rhai sydd yn dywedyd y cyfryw bethau, yn dangos yn eglur eu bod yn ceisio gwlad. 15 Ac yn wir, pe buasent yn meddwl am y wlad honno, o’r hon y daethent allan, hwy a allasent gael amser i ddychwelyd: 16 Eithr yn awr gwlad well y maent hwy yn ei chwennych, hynny ydyw, un nefol: o achos paham nid cywilydd gan Dduw ei alw yn Dduw iddynt hwy: oblegid efe a baratôdd ddinas iddynt. 17 Trwy ffydd yr offrymodd Abraham Isaac, pan ei profwyd: a’i unig‐anedig fab a offrymodd efe, yr hwn a dderbyniasai’r addewidion: 18 Wrth yr hwn y dywedasid, Yn Isaac y gelwir i ti had: 19 Gan gyfrif bod Duw yn abl i’w gyfodi ef o feirw; o ba le y cawsai efe ef hefyd mewn cyffelybiaeth. 20 Trwy ffydd y bendithiodd Isaac Jacob ac Esau am bethau a fyddent. 21 Trwy ffydd, Jacob, wrth farw, a fendithiodd bob un o feibion Joseff; ac a addolodd â’i bwys ar ben ei ffon. 22 Trwy ffydd, Joseff, wrth farw, a goffaodd am ymadawiad plant Israel; ac a roddodd orchymyn am ei esgyrn. 23 Trwy ffydd, Moses, pan anwyd, a guddiwyd dri mis gan ei rieni, o achos eu bod yn ei weled yn fachgen tlws: ac nid ofnasant orchymyn y brenin. 24 Trwy ffydd, Moses, wedi myned yn fawr, a wrthododd ei alw yn fab merch Pharo; 25 Gan ddewis yn hytrach oddef adfyd gyda phobl Dduw, na chael mwyniant pechod dros amser; 26 Gan farnu yn fwy golud ddirmyg Crist na thrysorau’r Aifft: canys edrych yr oedd efe ar daledigaeth y gobrwy. 27 Trwy ffydd y gadawodd efe yr Aifft, heb ofni llid y brenin: canys efe a ymwrolodd fel un yn gweled yr anweledig. 28 Trwy ffydd y gwnaeth efe y pasg, a gollyngiad y gwaed, rhag i’r hwn ydoedd yn dinistrio’r rhai cyntaf‐anedig gyffwrdd â hwynt. 29 Trwy ffydd yr aethant trwy’r môr coch, megis ar hyd tir sych: yr hyn pan brofodd yr Eifftiaid, boddi a wnaethant. 30 Trwy ffydd y syrthiodd caerau Jericho, wedi eu hamgylchu dros saith niwrnod. 31 Trwy ffydd ni ddifethwyd Rahab y butain gyda’r rhai ni chredent, pan dderbyniodd hi’r ysbïwyr yn heddychol. 32 A pheth mwy a ddywedaf? canys yr amser a ballai i mi i fynegi am Gedeon, am Barac, ac am Samson, ac am Jefftha, am Dafydd hefyd, a Samuel, a’r proffwydi; 33 Y rhai trwy ffydd a oresgynasant deyrnasoedd, a wnaethant gyfiawnder, a gawsant addewidion, a gaeasant safnau llewod, 34 A ddiffoddasant angerdd y tân, a ddianghasant rhag min y cleddyf, a nerthwyd o wendid, a wnaethpwyd yn gryfion mewn rhyfel, a yrasant fyddinoedd yr estroniaid i gilio. 35 Gwragedd a dderbyniodd eu meirw trwy atgyfodiad: ac eraill a ddirdynnwyd, heb dderbyn ymwared; fel y gallent hwy gael atgyfodiad gwell. 36 Ac eraill a gawsant brofedigaeth trwy watwar a fflangellau, ie, trwy rwymau hefyd a charchar: 37 Hwynt‐hwy a labyddiwyd, a dorrwyd â llif, a demtiwyd, a laddwyd yn feirw â’r cleddyf; a grwydrasant mewn crwyn defaid, a chrwyn geifr; yn ddiddim, yn gystuddiol, yn ddrwg eu cyflwr; 38 (Y rhai nid oedd y byd yn deilwng ohonynt,) yn crwydro mewn anialwch, a mynyddoedd, a thyllau ac ogofeydd y ddaear. 39 A’r rhai hyn oll, wedi cael tystiolaeth trwy ffydd, ni dderbyniasant yr addewid: 40 Gan fod Duw yn rhagweled rhyw beth gwell amdanom ni, fel na pherffeithid hwynt hebom ninnau.
Hebrews 11 New International Version (NIV)
Faith in Action
11 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for.
3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
4 By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead.
5 By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.”[a] For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
7 By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.
8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. 9 By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. 10 For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. 11 And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she[b] considered him faithful who had made the promise. 12 And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.
13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth. 14 People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. 15 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.
17 By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, 18 even though God had said to him, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.”[c] 19 Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so in a manner of speaking he did receive Isaac back from death.
20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau in regard to their future.
21 By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of Joseph’s sons, and worshiped as he leaned on the top of his staff.
22 By faith Joseph, when his end was near, spoke about the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and gave instructions concerning the burial of his bones.
23 By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict.
24 By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. 25 He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. 26 He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward. 27 By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw him who is invisible. 28 By faith he kept the Passover and the application of blood, so that the destroyer of the firstborn would not touch the firstborn of Israel.
29 By faith the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land; but when the Egyptians tried to do so, they were drowned.
30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell, after the army had marched around them for seven days.
31 By faith the prostitute Rahab, because she welcomed the spies, was not killed with those who were disobedient.[d]
32 And what more shall I say? I do not have time to tell about Gideon, Barak, Samson and Jephthah, about David and Samuel and the prophets, 33 who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies. 35 Women received back their dead, raised to life again. There were others who were tortured, refusing to be released so that they might gain an even better resurrection. 36 Some faced jeers and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. 37 They were put to death by stoning;[e] they were sawed in two; they were killed by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated— 38 the world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts and mountains, living in caves and in holes in the ground.
39 These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised, 40 since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.
