Hebrews 11:1

Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

“Now ‘faith’ [aman’: being truthful or certain, set office, truth, etc..] is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen.” So be certain!

‘Amein’ [Amen: So be it, Truly, etc..]

Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:


1.  אָמַן âman, aw-man’; a primitive root; (Isaiah 30:21; interchangeable with H541, to go to the right hand) properly, to build up or support; to foster as a parent or nurse; figuratively to render (or be) firm or faithful, to trust or believe, to be permanent or quiet; morally to be true or certain;:—hence, assurance, believe, bring up, establish, fail, be faithful (of long continuance, stedfast, sure, surely, trusty, verified), nurse, (-ing father), (put), trust, turn to the right. https://www.blueletterbible.org/lexicon/h539/kjv/wlc/0-1/
