Hebrews 11

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Ειναι δε η πιστις ελπιζομενων πεποιθησις, βεβαιωσις πραγματων μη βλεπομενων.
For by it the elders obtained a good report.
Διοτι δια ταυτης ελαβον καλην μαρτυριαν οι πρεσβυτεροι.
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.
Δια πιστεως εννοουμεν οτι οι αιωνες εκτιθησαν με τον λογον του Θεου, ωστε τα βλεπομενα δεν εγειναν εκ φαινομενων.
By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
Δια πιστεως ο Αβελ προσεφερε προς τον Θεον καλητεραν θυσιαν παρα τον Καιν, δια της οποιας εμαρτυρηθη οτι ητο δικαιος, επειδη ο Θεος εδωκε μαρτυριαν περι των δωρων αυτου, και δι αυτης καιτοι αποθανων ετι λαλει.
By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
Δια πιστεως μετετεθη ο Ενωχ, δια να μη ιδη θανατον, και δεν ευρισκετο, διοτι μετεθεσεν αυτον ο Θεος επειδη προ της μεταθεσεως αυτου εμαρτυρηθη οτι ευηρεστησεν εις τον Θεον
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
χωρις δε πιστεως αδυνατον ειναι να ευαρεστηση τις εις αυτον διοτι ο προσερχομενος εις τον Θεον πρεπει να πιστευη οτι ειναι και γινεται μισθαποδοτης εις τους εκζητουντας αυτον.
By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
Δια πιστεως ο Νωε, ειδοποιηθεις θεοθεν περι των μη βλεπομενων ετι, εφοβηθη και κατεσκευασε κιβωτον προς σωτηριαν του οικου αυτου, δι ης κατεκρινε τον κοσμον και εγεινε κληρονομος της δια πιστεως δικαιοσυνης.
By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
Δια πιστεως υπηκουσεν ο Αβρααμ, οτε εκαλειτο να εξελθη εις τον τοπον τον οποιον εμελλε να λαβη εις κληρονομιαν, και εξηλθε μη εξευρων που υπαγει.
By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
Δια πιστεως παρωκησεν εις την γην της επαγγελιας ως ξενην, κατοικησας εν σκηναις μετα Ισαακ και Ιακωβ των συγκληρονομων της αυτης επαγγελιας
For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
διοτι περιεμενε την πολιν την εχουσαν τα θεμελια, της οποιας τεχνιτης και δημιουργος ειναι ο Θεος.
Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
Δια πιστεως και αυτη η Σαρρα ελαβε δυναμιν εις το να συλλαβη σπερμα και παρα καιρον ηλικιας εγεννησεν, επειδη εστοχασθη πιστον τον υποσχεθεντα.
Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
Δια τουτο και εξ ενος, μαλιστα νενεκρωμενου, εγεννηθησαν καθως τα αστρα του ουρανου κατα το πληθος, και ως η αμμος η παρα το χειλος της θαλασσης, ητις δεν δυναται να αριθμηθη.
These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
Εν πιστει απεθανον ουτοι παντες, μη λαβοντες τας επαγγελιας, αλλα μακροθεν ιδοντες αυτας και πεισθεντες και εγκολπωθεντες και ομολογησαντες οτι ειναι ξενοι και παρεπιδημοι επι της γης.
For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
Διοτι οι λεγοντες τοιαυτα δεικνυουσιν οτι ζητουσι πατριδα.
And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
Και εαν μεν ενεθυμουντο εκεινην, εξ ης εξηλθον, ηθελον ευρει καιρον να επιστρεψωσι
But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
τωρα ομως επιθυμουσι καλητεραν, τουτεστιν επουρανιον. Δια τουτο ο Θεος δεν επαισχυνεται αυτους να λεγηται Θεος αυτων, διοτι ητοιμασε δι αυτους πολιν.
By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
Δια πιστεως ο Αβρααμ, οτε εδοκιμαζετο, προσεφερε τον Ισαακ, και τον μονογενη αυτου προσεφερεν εκεινος οστις ανεδεχθη τας επαγγελιας,
Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
προς τον οποιον ελαληθη οτι εν Ισαακ θελει κληθη εις σε σπερμα,
Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.
συλλογισθεις οτι ο Θεος δυναται και εκ νεκρων να ανεγειρη εξ ων και ελαβεν αυτον οπισω παραβολικως.
By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.
Δια πιστεως ο Ισαακ ηυλογησε τον Ιακωβ και τον Ησαυ περι των μελλοντων.
By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.
Δια πιστεως ο Ιακωβ αποθνησκων ηυλογησεν εκαστον των υιων του Ιωσηφ και προσεκυνησεν επιστηριζομενος επι το ακρον της ραβδου αυτου.
By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.
Δια πιστεως ο Ιωσηφ αποθνησκων προανηγγειλε περι της εξοδου των υιων Ισραηλ και παρηγγειλε περι των οστεων αυτου.
By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.
Δια πιστεως ο Μωυσης, αφου εγεννηθη, εκρυφθη τρεις μηνας υπο των γονεων αυτου, διοτι ειδον κεχαριτωμενον το παιδιον, και δεν εφοβηθησαν το διαταγμα του βασιλεως.
By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
Δια πιστεως ο Μωυσης, αφου εμεγαλωσεν, ηρνηθη να λεγηται υιος της θυγατρος του Φαραω,
Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
προκρινας μαλλον να κακουχηται με τον λαον του Θεου παρα να εχη προσκαιρον απολαυσιν αμαρτιας,
Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
κρινας τον υπερ του Χριστου ονειδισμον μεγαλητερον πλουτον παρα τους εν Αιγυπτω θησαυρους διοτι απεβλεπεν εις την μισθαποδοσιαν.
By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
Δια πιστεως αφηκε την Αιγυπτον, μη φοβηθεις τον θυμον του βασιλεως διοτι ως βλεπων τον αορατον ενεκαρτερησε.
Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
Δια πιστεως εκαμε το πασχα και την προσχυσιν του αιματος, δια να μη εγγιση αυτους ο εξολοθρευων τα πρωτοτοκα.
By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.
Δια πιστεως διεβησαν την Ερυθραν θαλασσαν ως δια ξηρας, την οποιαν δοκιμασαντες οι Αιγυπτιοι κατεποντισθησαν.
By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.
Δια πιστεως επεσον τα τειχη της Ιεριχω, αφου εκυκλωθησαν επι επτα ημερας.
By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.
Δια πιστεως η πορνη Ρααβ δεν συναπωλεσθη με τους απειθησαντας, δεχθεισα τους κατασκοπους με ειρηνην.
And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:
Και τι ετι να λεγω; Διοτι θελει με λειψει ο καιρος διηγουμενον περι Γεδεων, Βαρακ τε και Σαμψων και Ιεφθαε, Δαβιδ τε και Σαμουηλ και των προφητων,
Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
οιτινες δια της πιστεως κατεπολεμησαν βασιλειας, ειργασθησαν δικαιοσυνην, επετυχον τας επαγγελιας, εφραξαν στοματα λεοντων,
Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
εσβεσαν δυναμιν πυρος, εφυγον στοματα μαχαιρας, ενεδυναμωθησαν απο ασθενειας, εγειναν ισχυροι εν πολεμω, ετρεψαν εις φυγην στρατευματα αλλοτριων.
Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
Ελαβον γυναικες τους νεκρους αυτων αναστηθεντας αλλοι δε εβασανισθησαν, μη δεχθεντες την απολυτρωσιν, δια να αξιωθωσι καλητερας αναστασεως
And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
αλλοι δε εδοκιμασαν εμπαιγμους και μαστιγας, ετι δε και δεσμα και φυλακην
They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;
ελιθοβοληθησαν, επριονισθησαν, επειρασθησαν, με σφαγην μαχαιρας απεθανον, περιεπλανηθησαν με δερματα προβατων, με δερματα αιγων υστερουμενοι, θλιβομενοι, κακουχουμενοι,
(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
των οποιων δεν ητο αξιος ο κοσμος, πλανωμενοι εν ερημιαις και ορεσι και σπηλαιοις και ταις τρυπαις της γης.
And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:
Και ουτοι παντες αν και ελαβον καλην μαρτυριαν δια της πιστεως, δεν απηλαυσαν την επαγγελιαν,
God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
διοτι ο Θεος προεβλεψε καλυτερον τι περι ημων, δια να μη λαβωσι την τελειοτητα χωρις ημων.
