In the Hebrew Old Testament, the word used for heaven was shamayim, which means "height" or more specifically "heights", as this word is plural.

"Samayin" is the OT Hebrew word for heaven - the place in the sky where the God and the angels are. Dead people, good and bad, go to "Sheol," the underworld.
