Hebrews 11:12

And that as good as dead (kai tauta nenekrwmenou).
Accusative of general reference (tauta), sometimes singular as in 1 Corinthians 6:8. The perfect passive participle from nekrow, late verb to make dead, to treat as dead (Romans 4:19), here by hyperbole.

By the sea shore (para to xeilov thv talasshv).
"Along the lip of the sea" (from Genesis 22:17), xeilov here alone in this sense in the N.T.

Innumerable (anaritmhtov).
Old compound verbal adjective (alpha privative and aritmew, to number), here alone in N.T.
