Hebrews 11:29-30Contemporary English Version (CEV)
29 Because of their faith, the people walked through the Red Sea[a] on dry land. But when the Egyptians tried to do it, they were drowned.
30 God’s people had faith, and when they had walked around the city of Jericho for seven days, its walls fell down.
11.29Red Sea: This name comes from the Bible of the early Christians, a translation made into Greek about 200 (B).(C). It refers to the body of water that the Israelites crossed and was one of the marshes or fresh water lakes near the eastern part of the Nile Delta, where they lived and where the towns of Exodus 13.17—14.9 were located.
Hebrews 11:32-34Contemporary English Version (CEV)
32 What else can I say? There isn’t enough time to tell about Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel, and the prophets. 33 Their faith helped them conquer kingdoms, and because they did right, God made promises to them. They closed the jaws of lions 34 and put out raging fires and escaped from the swords of their enemies. Although they were weak, they were given the strength and power to chase foreign armies away.
