I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to the intelligent, nor yet favour to men of knowledge; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
2 Samuel 1:23
Saul and Jonathan, beloved and pleasant in their lives, Even in their death were not divided; They were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.
2 Samuel 2:18
And there were three sons of Zeruiah there, Joab, and Abishai, and Asahel. Now Asahel was swift of foot, as one of the gazelles that are in the field.
1 Chronicles 12:8
And of the Gadites, there separated themselves to David in the stronghold in the wilderness mighty men of valour, men fit for the service of war, armed with shield and spear; whose faces were like the faces of lions, and who were swift as the gazelles upon the mountains:
And my days are swifter than a runner: they flee away, they see no good.
The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so they run.
They run like mighty men; they climb the wall like men of war; and they march every one on his ways, and break not their ranks.
Neither shall he stand that handleth the bow; and the swift of foot shall not escape, and he that rideth the horse shall not deliver his soul;
1 Corinthians 9:24
Know ye not that they who run in the race-course run all, but one receives the prize? Thus run in order that ye may obtain.
