Hebrews 11:7

Being warned of God (xrhmatisqeiv). First aorist passive participle of xrhmatizw, old word for oracular or divine communications as already in Hebrews 8:5 (cf. Matthew 2:12, Matthew 2:22, etc.).

Moved with godly fear (eulabhqh). First aorist passive indicative of eulabeomai, old verb from eulabhv (from eu and labein, to take hold well or carefully), to show oneself eulabhv, to act circumspectly or with reverence, here only in N.T. (save Textus Receptus in Acts 23:10), often in LXX.

An ark (kibwton). Genesis 6:15; Matthew 24:38. Shaped like a box (cf. Hebrews 9:4).

Through which (di hv). Through his faith as shown in building the ark.

The world (ton kosmon). Sinful humanity as in verse Hebrews 11:38.

Heir (klhronomov). In II Peter 2:5 Noah is called "a preacher of righteousness" as here "heir of righteousness." He himself believed his message about the flood. Like Enoch he walked with God (Genesis 6:9).
