7. What description does Paul give of the sufferings endured by some of God's people in former ages?


"Others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: and others
had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: they were stoned,
they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and
goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in
deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth." Heb. 11: 35-38.
