- By faith the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land; but when the Egyptians tried to do so, they were drowned.
- By faith the walls of Jericho fell, after the army had marched around them for seven days.
- By faith the prostitute Rahab, because she welcomed the spies, was not killed with those who were disobedient.
And what more shall I say?
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 11:29-32, 12:1-2 (NIV)
