Hebrews 11:1-3 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

11 But faith is the substance of things that be to be hoped, and an argument of things not appearing. [Forsooth faith is the substance of things to be hoped, an argument, or certainty, of things not appearing.]

And in this faith old men have gotten witnessing.

By faith we understand that the worlds were made by God's word [By faith we understand the worlds to be shaped, or made, by God's word], that visible things were made of invisible things.

Hebrews 11:1-3 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

What faith is, and a commendation of the same. The steadfast belief of the fathers in old time.

11 Faith is a sure confidence of things that are hoped for, and a certainty of things that are not seen. By it the elders were well reported of.

  Through faith we understand that the world and all the things which are seen were made of nothing by the word of God.

Hebrews 11:1-3 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

11 1 He declareth in the whole Chapter, that the Fathers, which from the beginning of the world were approved of God, attained salvation no other way than by faith, that the Jews may know that by the same only, they are knit unto the Fathers in an holy union.

Now [a]faith is the grounds of things which are hoped for, and the evidence of things which are not seen.

[b]For by it our [c]elders were well reported of.

[d]Through faith we understand that the world was ordained by the word of God, so that the things which we [e]see, are not made of things which did appear.

Footnotes:

  1. Hebrews 11:1 An excellent description of faith by the effects, because it representeth things which are but yet in hope, and setteth as it were before our eyes things that are invisible.
  2. Hebrews 11:2 He showeth that the Fathers ought to be accounted of, by this virtue.
  3. Hebrews 11:2 That is, those Fathers of whom we came: and whose authority and example ought to move us very much.
  4. Hebrews 11:3 He showeth the propriety of faith, by setting unto us most piked examples of such as from the beginning of the world excelled in the Church.
  5. Hebrews 11:3 So that the world which we see, was not made of any matter that appeared or was before, but of nothing.

11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
