“Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:”
King James Version (KJV)
11:35 Women - Naturally weak. Received their dead - Children. Others were tortured - From those who acted great things the apostle rises higher, to those who showed the power of faith by suffering. Not accepting deliverance - On sinful terms. That they might obtain a better resurrection - An higher reward, seeing the greater their sufferings the greater would be their glory. #1Kin 17:22|; 2Kin 4:35
Heb 11:35 Women received their dead raised to life again. Examples are the widow of Zarephath (1Ki 17:17-24) and the Shunammite (2Ki 4:18-37). And others were tortured. This was especially true in the terrible persecutions recorded in the Book of Maccabees. That they might obtain a better resurrection. They preferred to suffer in hope of the resurrection to eternal life.
