Hebrews 11:1-5 New International Version (NIV)
Faith in Action
1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for.
3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
4 By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead.
5 By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.”[a] For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.

Waebrania 11: 1- 5
1 Basi imani ni kuwa na hakika ya mambo yatarajiwayo, ni bayana ya mambo yasiyoonekana.
2 Maana kwa hiyo wazee wetu walishuhudiwa.
3 Kwa imani twafahamu ya kuwa ulimwengu uliumbwa kwa neno la Mungu, hata vitu vinavyoonekana havikufanywa kwa vitu vilivyo dhahiri.
4 Kwa imani Habili alimtolea Mungu dhabihu iliyo bora kuliko Kaini; kwa hiyo alishuhudiwa kuwa ana haki; Mungu akazishuhudia sadaka zake, na kwa hiyo, ijapokuwa amekufa, angali akinena.
5 Kwa imani Henoko alihamishwa, asije akaona mauti, wala hakuonekana, kwa sababu Mungu alimhamisha; maana kabla ya kuhamishwa alikuwa ameshuhudiwa kwamba amempendeza Mungu.
