You will note that all these references are related to the OT.
In the OT, you had Sheol, which corresponds to hADES in the NT.
Sheol was comprised of all the dead, both righteous and unrighteous,
but after Christ lead captivity away, Sheol no longer seems to have
a compartment for the righteous. That is, in the OT, the redeemed
went to Abraham's bosom; in the NT, the redeemed go immediately
into the presence of the Lord.
In the OT, the redeemed expected to depart to Abraham's bosom,
where they awaited the resurrection at the final day.
The parable of the rich man and Lazarus shows these two
compartments. And some argue that the wicked demons
that are in Tartarus were yet in another compartment
within the Sheol complex.
