|Hebrews 11:13-16 |
13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them by faith from a long way off, and were convinced of them, and embraced them, confessing that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
14 For those who say such things, declare plainly that they seek a better land.
15 And truly, if they had been mindful of the land from where they originated, they would have had opportunity to have returned.
16 But they desired a better land, that is, a heavenly home. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God because he has prepared a city for them.
