'Heroes' in the Bible
These are the names of the mighty men whom David had: Josheb-basshebeth, a Tahchemonite, chief of the Three [heroes], known also as Adino the Eznite; he wielded his spear and went against 800 men, who were slain at one time.
Adina son of Shiza, a leader of the Reubenites, and thirty heroes with him,
Woe to those who are mighty heroes at drinking wine and men of strength in mixing alcoholic drinks! -- "
Their quiver is [filled with deadly missiles] like an open sepulcher [filled with dead bodies; the foes] are all mighty men (heroes).

Because God had us in mind and had something better and greater in view for us, so that they [these heroes and heroines of faith] should not come to perfection apart from us [before we could join them].
