Hebrews 11:30-40New American Standard Bible (NASB)
30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been encircled for seven days.31 By faith Rahab the harlot did not perish along with those who were disobedient, after she had welcomed the spies [a]in peace.
32 And what more shall I say? For time will fail me if I tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets,33 who by faith conquered kingdoms, performed acts of righteousness, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions,34 quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight.35 Women received back their dead by resurrection; and others were tortured, not accepting their [b]release, so that they might obtain a better resurrection;36 and others [c]experienced mockings and scourgings, yes, also chains and imprisonment.37 They were stoned, they were sawn in two, [d]they were tempted, they were put to death with the sword; they went about in sheepskins, in goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated38 (men of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts and mountains and caves and holes [e]in the ground.
39 And all these, having [f]gained approval through their faith, did not receive [g]what was promised,40 because God had [h]provided something better for us, so that apart from us they would not be made perfect.
