Chapter 14

  1. 1. And Samson
    H8123
    went down
    H3381
    to Timnath,
    H8553
    and saw
    H7200
    a woman
    H802
    in Timnath
    H8553
    of the daughters
    H1323
    of the Philistines.
    H6430
  2. 2. And he came up,
    H5927
    and told
    H5046
    his father
    H1
    and his mother,
    H517
    and said,
    H559
    I have seen
    H7200
    a woman
    H802
    in Timnath
    H8553
    of the daughters
    H1323
    of the Philistines:
    H6430
    now therefore get
    H3947
    her for me to wife.
    H802
  3. 3. Then his father
    H1
    and his mother
    H517
    said
    H559
    unto him, Is there never
    H369
    a woman
    H802
    among the daughters
    H1323
    of thy brethren,
    H251
    or among all my people,
    H5971
    that thou goest
    H1980
    to take
    H3947
    a wife
    H802
    of the uncircumcised
    H6189
    Philistines?
    H6430
    And Samson
    H8123
    said
    H559
    unto his father,
    H1
    Get
    H3947
    her for me; for she pleaseth me well.
    H3474
    H5869
  4. 4. But his father
    H1
    and his mother
    H517
    knew
    H3045
    not that it was of the LORD,
    H3068
    that he sought
    H1245
    an occasion
    H8385
    against the Philistines:
    H6430
    for at that time
    H6256
    the Philistines
    H6430
    had dominion
    H4910
    over Israel.
    H3478
  5. 5. Then went
    H3381
    Samson
    H8123
    down,
    H3381
    and his father
    H1
    and his mother,
    H517
    to Timnath,
    H8553
    and came
    H935
    to the vineyards
    H3754
    of Timnath:
    H8553
    and, behold, a young
    H3715
    lion
    H738
    roared
    H7580
    against
    H7125
    him.
  6. 6. And the Spirit
    H7307
    of the LORD
    H3068
    came mightily
    H6743
    upon him, and he rent
    H8156
    him as he would have rent
    H8156
    a kid,
    H1423
    and he had nothing
    H3972
    in his hand:
    H3027
    but he told
    H5046
    not his father
    H1
    or his mother
    H517
    what he had done.
    H6213
  7. 7. And he went down,
    H3381
    and talked
    H1696
    with the woman;
    H802
    and she pleased
    H3474
    Samson
    H8123
    well.
    H3474
    H5869
  8. 8. And after a time
    H3117
    he returned
    H7725
    to take
    H3947
    her, and he turned aside
    H5493
    to see
    H7200
    the carcase
    H4658
    of the lion:
    H738
    and, behold, there was a swarm
    H5712
    of bees
    H1682
    and honey
    H1706
    in the carcase
    H1472
    of the lion.
    H738
  9. 9. And he took
    H7287
    thereof in his hands,
    H3709
    and went on
    H3212
    eating,
    H398
    and came
    H1980
    to his father
    H1
    and mother,
    H517
    and he gave
    H5414
    them, and they did eat:
    H398
    but he told
    H5046
    not them that he had taken
    H7287
    the honey
    H1706
    out of the carcase
    H1472
    of the lion.
    H738
  10. 10. So his father
    H1
    went down
    H3381
    unto the woman:
    H802
    and Samson
    H8123
    made
    H6213
    there a feast;
    H4960
    for so used the young men
    H970
    to do.
    H6213
  11. 11. And it came to pass, when they saw
    H7200
    him, that they brought
    H3947
    thirty
    H7970
    companions
    H4828
    to be with him.
  12. 12. And Samson
    H8123
    said
    H559
    unto them, I will now put forth
    H2330
    a riddle
    H2420
    unto you: if ye can certainly
    H5046
    declare
    H5046
    it me within the seven
    H7651
    days
    H3117
    of the feast,
    H4960
    and find it out,
    H4672
    then I will give
    H5414
    you thirty
    H7970
    sheets
    H5466
    and thirty
    H7970
    change
    H2487
    of garments:
    H899
  13. 13. But if ye cannot
    H3201
    declare
    H5046
    it me, then shall ye give
    H5414
    me thirty
    H7970
    sheets
    H5466
    and thirty
    H7970
    change
    H2487
    of garments.
    H899
    And they said
    H559
    unto him, Put forth
    H2330
    thy riddle,
    H2420
    that we may hear
    H8085
    it.
  14. 14. And he said
    H559
    unto them, Out of the eater
    H398
    came forth
    H3318
    meat,
    H3978
    and out of the strong
    H5794
    came forth
    H3318
    sweetness.
    H4966
    And they could
    H3201
    not in three
    H7969
    days
    H3117
    expound
    H5046
    the riddle.
    H2420
  15. 15. And it came to pass on the seventh
    H7637
    day,
    H3117
    that they said
    H559
    unto Samson's
    H8123
    wife,
    H802
    Entice
    H6601
    thy husband,
    H376
    that he may declare
    H5046
    unto us the riddle,
    H2420
    lest we burn
    H8313
    thee and thy father's
    H1
    house
    H1004
    with fire:
    H784
    have ye called
    H7121
    us to take that we have?
    H3423
    is it not so?
  16. 16. And Samson's
    H8123
    wife
    H802
    wept
    H1058
    before him, and said,
    H559
    Thou dost but hate
    H8130
    me, and lovest
    H157
    me not: thou hast put forth
    H2330
    a riddle
    H2420
    unto the children
    H1121
    of my people,
    H5971
    and hast not told
    H5046
    it me. And he said
    H559
    unto her, Behold, I have not told
    H5046
    it my father
    H1
    nor my mother,
    H517
    and shall I tell
    H5046
    it thee?
  17. 17. And she wept
    H1058
    before him the seven
    H7651
    days,
    H3117
    while their feast
    H4960
    lasted:
    H1961
    and it came to pass on the seventh
    H7637
    day,
    H3117
    that he told
    H5046
    her, because she lay sore
    H6693
    upon him: and she told
    H5046
    the riddle
    H2420
    to the children
    H1121
    of her people.
    H5971
  18. 18. And the men
    H582
    of the city
    H5892
    said
    H559
    unto him on the seventh
    H7637
    day
    H3117
    before the sun
    H2775
    went down,
    H935
    What is sweeter
    H4966
    than honey?
    H1706
    and what is stronger
    H5794
    than a lion?
    H738
    And he said
    H559
    unto them, If
    H3884
    ye had not plowed
    H2790
    with my heifer,
    H5697
    ye had not found out
    H4672
    my riddle.
    H2420
  19. 19. And the Spirit
    H7307
    of the LORD
    H3068
    came
    H6743
    upon him, and he went down
    H3381
    to Ashkelon,
    H831
    and slew
    H5221
    thirty
    H7970
    men
    H376
    of them, and took
    H3947
    their spoil,
    H2488
    and gave
    H5414
    change
    H2487
    of garments unto them which expounded
    H5046
    the riddle.
    H2420
    And his anger
    H639
    was kindled,
    H2734
    and he went up
    H5927
    to his father's
    H1
    house.
    H1004
  20. 20. But Samson's
    H8123
    wife
    H802
    was given to his companion,
    H4828
    whom he had used as his friend.
