(E)“Yet a little while,
    and (F)the coming one will come and will not delay;
38 (G)but my righteous one shall live by faith,
    and if he shrinks back,
my soul has no pleasure in him.”

39 But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.

11 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of (H)things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by (I)the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of (J)things that are visible.
