Hebrews 11:34

Quenched the power of fire (esbesan dunamin purov).
First aorist active indicative of sbennumi (Matthew 12:20). See Daniel 3:19-28.

Escaped the edge of the sword (epugon stomata maxairhv).
Second aorist active indicative of peugw, old verb to flee. "Mouths (stomata) of the sword" (Luke 21:24). See 1 Samuel 18:11; 1 Kings 19:2.

Were made strong (edunamwthsan).
First aorist passive indicative of dunamow, late verb from dunamiv as in Colossians 1:11.

Waxed mighty in war (egenhthsan isxuroi en polemwi).
"Became strong in battle" (Psalms 18:34).

Armies of aliens (parembolav allotriwn).
Late compound (para, en, ballw) for encampment (Polybius, Plutarch), barracks (Acts 21:34,37), armies in battle line (Revelation 20:9 and here as in LXX and Polybius). Apparently a reference to the campaigns of Judas Maccabeus.
