Hebrews 11:8-12

Note: In the chapter of faith Abraham is mentioned in two sections, vv8-12 and vv17-19, either side of the summary of faith, vv 13-16. The following verses link Abraham and Sarah in faith, producing the seed that inherit the promise. 

A. 8 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.

B. 9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob,

C. the heirs with him of the same promise:

B’. 10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

A’. 11 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. 12 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.
