Hebrews 11:34-36 The Passion Translation (TPT)

34 put out the power of raging fire, and caused many to escape certain death by the sword. In their weakness their faith imparted power to make them strong![a] Faith sparked courage within them and they became mighty warriors in battle, pulling armies from another realm into battle array.[b] 35 Faith-filled women saw their dead children raised in resurrection power.

Yet it was faith that enabled others to endure great atrocities. They were stretched out on the wheel and tortured,[c] and didn’t deny their faith in order to be freed, because they longed for a more honorable and glorious resurrection!

36 Others were mocked and experienced the most severe beating with whips; they were in chains and imprisoned.


  1. Hebrews 11:34 The Aramaic can be translated “They were restored (healed) from sickness.”
  2. Hebrews 11:34 See Judg. 7; 16:19–30. Although most translate this “causing enemy armies to flee” the Greek is literally “wheeling ranks drawn up in battle order, ranks which belonged to another.” The implication is that through their faith, angelic warriors wheeled into battle formation ready to fight with them in battle.
  3. Hebrews 11:35 Or “tortured with clubs” (beaten to death).
