Then why don't you know about OT saints?
Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their
beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a
two-edged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the
heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with
chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them
the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the
Lord. (Psalms 149:5-9)
