“But now they desire a better countrey, that is, an heauenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to bee called their God: for he hath prepared for thē a city.”

King James Version (KJV)

Hebrews 11:16

13. These all died in faith, not hauing receiued the promises, but hauing seene them a farre off, and were perswaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 14. For they that say such things, declare plainly that they seeke a countrey. 15. And truly if they had been mindfull of that countrey, from whence they came out, they might haue had opportunitie to haue returned: 16. But now they desire a better countrey, that is, an heauenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to bee called their God: for he hath prepared for thē a city. 17. By faith Abraham when he was tried, offered vp Isaac: and he that had receiued the promises, offered vp his onely begotten sonne, 18. Of whom it was said, That, in Isaac shall thy seed be called: 19. Accounting that God was able to raise him vp, euen from the dead: from whence also he receiued him in a figure.
