Hebrews 11:34 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Quenched the violence of fire - As in the case of the three faithful Hebrews, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, who, for their steady attachment to God's worship, were cast into a fiery furnace, in which they were preserved, and from which they escaped unhurt. Daniel 3.
Escaped the edge of the sword - Moses, who escaped the sword of Pharaoh, Exodus 18:4; Elijah, that of Jezebel; and David, that of Saul: and many others.
Out of weakness were made strong - Were miraculously restored from sickness, which seemed to threaten their life; as Hezekiah, Isaiah 38:21.
Waxed valiant in fight - Like Gideon, who overthrew the camp of the Midianites, and Jonathan, that of the Philistines, in such a way as must have proved that God was with them.

While each man held his position around the camp, all the Midianites ran, crying out as they fled.
He attacked them viciously and slaughtered many of them. Then he went down and stayed in a cave in the rock of Etam.
Finding a fresh jawbone of a donkey, he grabbed it and struck down a thousand men.
1 Samuel 17:51
David ran and stood over him. He took hold of the Philistine's sword and drew it from the sheath. After he killed him, he cut off his head with the sword. When the Philistines saw that their hero was dead, they turned and ran.

and he hurled it, saying to himself, "I'll pin David to the wall." But David eluded him twice.
