Hebrews 11:34 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Quenched the violence of fire (ἔσβεσαν δύναμιν πυρός)

Rend. "the power of fire." Reference to the three Hebrews, Daniel 3; comp. 1 Macc. 2:59.

Edge of the sword (στόματα μαχαίρης)

Lit. mouths of the sword. See on Hebrews 4:12. The plural edges indicates frequent assaults.

Out of weakness (ἀπὸ ἀσθενείας)

Rend. "from weakness." For the sense of ἀπὸ from, see Luke 5:15. The meaning is not confined to sickness, as in the case of Hezekiah (2 Kings 20; Isaiah 38). The main reference is probably to Samson, Judges 16:28 ff.

The armies of the aliens (παρεμβολὰς ἀλλοτρίων)

Omit both the's in translation. For παρεμβολὰς see on Acts 21:34. Very often in lxx. Aliens, foreign foes or invaders.
