Hebrews 11:6

Impossible (adunaton).
Strong word as in 6:4,18. See Romans 8:8 for same idea with aresai (areskw, Galatians 1:10).

Must believe (pisteusai dei).
Moral necessity to have faith (trust, pisteuw). This is true in business also (banks, for instance).

That he is (oti estin).
The very existence of God is a matter of intelligent faith (Romans 1:19) So that men are left without excuse.

He is a rewarder (mistapodothv ginetai).
Rather, "becomes a rewarder" (present middle indicative of ginomai, not of eimi). Only N.T. example of mistapodothv, late and rare double compound (one papyrus example, from mistov (reward) and apodidwmi (to pay back) like mistapodosia (10:35; 11:26).

Seek after (ekzhtousin).
That seek out God.
