From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    perpetuity of existence. The doctrine of immortality is taught
    in the Old Testament. It is plainly implied in the writings of
    Moses (Gen. 5:22, 24; 25:8; 37:35; 47:9; 49:29, comp. Heb.
    11:13-16; Ex. 3:6, comp. Matt. 22:23). It is more clearly and
    fully taught in the later books (Isa. 14:9; Ps. 17:15; 49:15;
    73:24). It was thus a doctrine obviously well known to the Jews.
      With the full revelation of the gospel this doctrine was
    "brought to light" (2 Tim. 1:10; 1 Cor. 15; 2 Cor. 5:1-6; 1
    Thess. 4:13-18).
