Hebrews 11:13-16

Context
11:13 These all died in faith without receiving the things promised, 3  but they saw them in the distance and welcomed them and acknowledged that they were strangers and foreigners 4  on the earth. 11:14 For those who speak in such a way make it clear that they are seeking a homeland. 11:15 In fact, if they had been thinking of the land that they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 11:16 But as it is, 5  they aspire to a better land, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.
