39 And all these, having (A)gained approval through their faith, (B)did not receive [a]what was promised, 40 because God had [b]provided (C)something better for us, so that (D)apart from us they would not be made perfect.

Jesus, the Example

12 Therefore, since we also have such a great cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let’s (E)rid ourselves of every obstacle and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let’s (F)run with (G)endurance the race that is set before us, looking only at Jesus, the [c](H)originator and perfecter of the faith, who for the joy set before Him (I)endured the cross, (J)despising the shame, and has (K)sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
