Hebrews 11:39-40

Context
11:39 And these all were commended 3  for their faith, yet they did not receive what was promised. 4  11:40 For God had provided something better for us, so that they would be made perfect together with us. 5 

1 tn Grk “the promises,” referring to the things God promised, not to the pledges themselves.

2 tn Or “sojourners.”

3 sn The expression these all were commended forms an inclusio with Heb 11:2: The chapter begins and ends with references to commendation for faith.

4 tn Grk “the promise,” referring to the thing God promised, not to the pledge itself.

5 tn The Greek phrasing emphasizes this point by negating the opposite: “so that they would not be made perfect without us.”
