Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_19 44:1-7
1
[For the choir director. A Maskil of the sons of Korah.] God, we have heard with our ears-- our forefathers have told us-- the work You accomplished in their days, in days long ago:
2
to plant them, You drove out the nations with Your hand; to settle them, You crushed the peoples.
3
For they did not take the land by their sword-- their arm did not bring them victory-- but by Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your face, for You were pleased with them.
4
You are my King, my God, who ordains victories for Jacob.
5
Through You we drive back our foes; through Your name we trample our enemies.
6
For I do not trust in my bow, and my sword does not bring me victory.
7
But You give us victory over our foes and let those who hate us be disgraced.

11
Please rescue me from the hand of my brother Esau, for I am afraid of him; otherwise, he may come and attack me, the mothers, and their children.
12
You have said, 'I will cause you to prosper, and I will make your offspring like the sand of the sea, which cannot be counted.'"

Then Samuel took a young lamb and offered it as a whole burnt offering to the LORD. He cried out to the LORD on behalf of Israel, and the LORD answered him.
10
Samuel was offering the burnt offering as the Philistines drew near to fight against Israel. The LORD thundered loudly against the Philistines that day and threw them into such confusion that they fled before Israel.
11
Then the men of Israel charged out of Mizpah and pursued the Philistines striking them down all the way to a place below Beth-car.
12
Afterwards, Samuel took a stone and set it upright between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, explaining, "The LORD has helped us to this point."

Against hope, with hope he believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what had been spoken: So will your descendants be.
19
He considered his own body to be already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah's womb, without weakening in the faith.
20
He did not waver in unbelief at God's promise, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God,
21
because he was fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.
22
Therefore, it was credited to him for righteousness.

8
By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed and went out to a place he was going to receive as an inheritance; he went out, not knowing where he was going.
9
By faith he stayed as a foreigner in the land of promise, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, co-heirs of the same promise.
10
For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.
11
By faith even Sarah herself, when she was barren, received power to conceive offspring, even though she was past the age, since she considered that the One who had promised was faithful.
12
And therefore from one man-- in fact, from one as good as dead-- came offspring as numerous as the stars of heaven and as innumerable as the grains of sand by the seashore.
13
These all died in faith without having received the promises, but they saw them from a distance, greeted them, and confessed that they were foreigners and temporary residents on the earth.
14
Now those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a homeland.
15
If they had been remembering that land they came from, they would have had opportunity to return.
16
But they now aspire to a better land-- a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.
17
By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac; he who had received the promises was offering up his unique son,
18
about whom it had been said, In Isaac your seed will be called.
19
He considered God to be able even to raise someone from the dead, from which he also got him back as an illustration.
20
By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.
21
By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and, he worshiped, leaning on the top of his staff.
22
By faith Joseph, as he was nearing the end of his life, mentioned the exodus of the sons of Israel and gave instructions concerning his bones.
23
By faith Moses, after he was born, was hidden by his parents for three months, because they saw that the child was beautiful, and they didn't fear the king's edict.
24
By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter
25
and chose to suffer with the people of God rather than to enjoy the short-lived pleasure of sin.
26
For he considered reproach for the sake of the Messiah to be greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, since his attention was on the reward.
27
By faith he left Egypt behind, not being afraid of the king's anger, for he persevered, as one who sees Him who is invisible.
28
By faith he instituted the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood, so that the destroyer of the firstborn might not touch them.
29
By faith they crossed the Red Sea as though they were on dry land. When the Egyptians attempted to do this, they were drowned.
30
By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after being encircled for seven days.
31
By faith Rahab the prostitute received the spies in peace and didn't perish with those who disobeyed.
