Chapter 16

  1. 1. Then went
    H3212
    Samson
    H8123
    to Gaza,
    H5804
    and saw
    H7200
    there an harlot,
    H2181
    H802
    and went in
    H935
    unto her.
  2. 2. And it was told the Gazites,
    H5841
    saying,
    H559
    Samson
    H8123
    is come
    H935
    hither. And they compassed him in,
    H5437
    and laid wait
    H693
    for him all night
    H3915
    in the gate
    H8179
    of the city,
    H5892
    and were quiet
    H2790
    all the night,
    H3915
    saying,
    H559
    In the morning,
    H1242
    when it is day,
    H216
    we shall kill
    H2026
    him.
  3. 3. And Samson
    H8123
    lay
    H7901
    till midnight,
    H3915
    H2677
    and arose
    H6965
    at midnight,
    H3915
    H2677
    and took
    H270
    the doors
    H1817
    of the gate
    H8179
    of the city,
    H5892
    and the two
    H8147
    posts,
    H4201
    and went away
    H5265
    with them, bar
    H1280
    and all, and put
    H7760
    them upon his shoulders,
    H3802
    and carried them up
    H5927
    to the top
    H7218
    of an hill
    H2022
    that is before
    H6440
    Hebron.
    H2275
  4. 4. And it came to pass afterward,
    H310
    that he loved
    H157
    a woman
    H802
    in the valley
    H5158
    of Sorek,
    H7796
    whose name
    H8034
    was Delilah.
    H1807
  5. 5. And the lords
    H5633
    of the Philistines
    H6430
    came up
    H5927
    unto her, and said
    H559
    unto her, Entice
    H6601
    him, and see
    H7200
    wherein his great
    H1419
    strength
    H3581
    lieth, and by what means we may prevail
    H3201
    against him, that we may bind
    H631
    him to afflict
    H6031
    him: and we will give
    H5414
    thee every one
    H376
    of us eleven hundred
    H3967
    pieces
    H505
    of silver.
    H3701
  6. 6. And Delilah
    H1807
    said
    H559
    to Samson,
    H8123
    Tell
    H5046
    me, I pray thee, wherein thy great
    H1419
    strength
    H3581
    lieth, and wherewith thou mightest be bound
    H631
    to afflict
    H6031
    thee.
  7. 7. And Samson
    H8123
    said
    H559
    unto her, If they bind
    H631
    me with seven
    H7651
    green
    H3892
    withs
    H3499
    that were never dried,
    H2717
    then shall I be weak,
    H2470
    and be as another
    H259
    man.
    H120
  8. 8. Then the lords
    H5633
    of the Philistines
    H6430
    brought up
    H5927
    to her seven
    H7651
    green
    H3892
    withs
    H3499
    which had not been dried,
    H2717
    and she bound
    H631
    him with them.
  9. 9. Now there were men lying in wait,
    H693
    abiding
    H3427
    with her in the chamber.
    H2315
    And she said
    H559
    unto him, The Philistines
    H6430
    be upon thee, Samson.
    H8123
    And he brake
    H5423
    the withs,
    H3499
    as a thread
    H6616
    of tow
    H5296
    is broken
    H5423
    when it toucheth
    H7306
    the fire.
    H784
    So his strength
    H3581
    was not known.
    H3045
  10. 10. And Delilah
    H1807
    said
    H559
    unto Samson,
    H8123
    Behold, thou hast mocked
    H2048
    me, and told
    H1696
    me lies:
    H3577
    now tell
    H5046
    me, I pray thee, wherewith thou mightest be bound.
    H631
  11. 11. And he said
    H559
    unto her, If they bind
    H631
    me fast
    H631
    with new
    H2319
    ropes
    H5688
    that never were occupied,
    H6213
    H4399
    then shall I be weak,
    H2470
    and be as another
    H259
    man.
    H120
  12. 12. Delilah
    H1807
    therefore took
    H3947
    new
    H2319
    ropes,
    H5688
    and bound
    H631
    him therewith, and said
    H559
    unto him, The Philistines
    H6430
    be upon thee, Samson.
    H8123
    And there were liers in wait
    H693
    abiding
    H3427
    in the chamber.
    H2315
    And he brake
    H5423
    them from off his arms
    H2220
    like a thread.
    H2339
  13. 13. And Delilah
    H1807
    said
    H559
    unto Samson,
    H8123
    Hitherto
    H2008
    thou hast mocked
    H2048
    me, and told
    H1696
    me lies:
    H3577
    tell
    H5046
    me wherewith thou mightest be bound.
    H631
    And he said
    H559
    unto her, If thou weavest
    H707
    the seven
    H7651
    locks
    H4253
    of my head
    H7218
    with the web.
    H4545
  14. 14. And she fastened
    H8628
    it with the pin,
    H3489
    and said
    H559
    unto him, The Philistines
    H6430
    be upon thee, Samson.
    H8123
    And he awaked
    H3364
    out of his sleep,
    H8142
    and went away
    H5265
    with the pin
    H3489
    of the beam,
    H708
    and with the web.
    H4545
  15. 15. And she said
    H559
    unto him, How
    H349
    canst thou say,
    H559
    I love
    H157
    thee, when thine heart
    H3820
    is not with me? thou hast mocked
    H2048
    me these three
    H7969
    times,
    H6471
    and hast not told
    H5046
    me wherein thy great
    H1419
    strength
    H3581
    lieth.
  16. 16. And it came to pass, when she pressed
    H6693
    him daily
    H3117
    with her words,
    H1697
    and urged
    H509
    him, so that his soul
    H5315
    was vexed
    H7114
    unto death;
    H4191
  17. 17. That he told
    H5046
    her all his heart,
    H3820
    and said
    H559
    unto her, There hath not come
    H5927
    a razor
    H4177
    upon mine head;
    H7218
    for I have been a Nazarite
    H5139
    unto God
    H430
    from my mother's
    H517
    womb:
    H990
    if I be shaven,
    H1548
    then my strength
    H3581
    will go
    H5493
    from me, and I shall become weak,
    H2470
    and be like any other man.
    H120
  18. 18. And when Delilah
    H1807
    saw
    H7200
    that he had told
    H5046
    her all his heart,
    H3820
    she sent
    H7971
    and called
    H7121
    for the lords
    H5633
    of the Philistines,
    H6430
    saying,
    H559
    Come up
    H5927
    this once,
    H6471
    for he hath shewed
    H5046
    me all his heart.
    H3820
    Then the lords
    H5633
    of the Philistines
    H6430
    came up
    H5927
    unto her, and brought
    H5927
    money
    H3701
    in their hand.
    H3027
  19. 19. And she made him sleep
    H3462
    upon her knees;
    H1290
    and she called
    H7121
    for a man,
    H376
    and she caused him to shave off
    H1548
    the seven
    H7651
    locks
    H4253
    of his head;
    H7218
    and she began
    H2490
    to afflict
    H6031
    him, and his strength
    H3581
    went
    H5493
    from him.
  20. 20. And she said,
    H559
    The Philistines
    H6430
    be upon thee, Samson.
    H8123
    And he awoke
    H3364
    out of his sleep,
    H8142
    and said,
    H559
    I will go out
    H3318
    as at other times before,
    H6471
    and shake
    H5287
    myself. And he wist
    H3045
    not that the LORD
    H3068
    was departed
    H5493
    from him.
  21. 21. But the Philistines
    H6430
    took
    H270
    him, and put out
    H5365
    his eyes,
    H5869
    and brought him down
    H3381
    to Gaza,
    H5804
    and bound
    H631
    him with fetters of brass;
    H5178
    and he did grind
    H2912
    in the prison
    H631
    house.
    H1004
  22. 22. Howbeit the hair
    H8181
    of his head
    H7218
    began
    H2490
    to grow again
    H6779
    after
    H834
    he was shaven.
    H1548
  23. 23. Then the lords
    H5633
    of the Philistines
    H6430
    gathered them together
    H622
    for to offer
    H2076
    a great
    H1419
    sacrifice
    H2077
    unto Dagon
    H1712
    their god,
    H430
    and to rejoice:
    H8057
    for they said,
    H559
    Our god
    H430
    hath delivered
    H5414
    Samson
    H8123
    our enemy
    H341
    into our hand.
    H3027
  24. 24. And when the people
    H5971
    saw
    H7200
    him, they praised
    H1984
    their god:
    H430
    for they said,
    H559
    Our god
    H430
    hath delivered
    H5414
    into our hands
    H3027
    our enemy,
    H341
    and the destroyer
    H2717
    of our country,
    H776
    which slew
    H2491
    many
    H7235
    of us.
  25. 25. And it came to pass, when their hearts
    H3820
    were merry,
    H2896
    that they said,
    H559
    Call
    H7121
    for Samson,
    H8123
    that he may make us sport.
    H7832
    And they called
    H7121
    for Samson
    H8123
    out of the prison
    H631
    house;
    H1004
    and he made them
    H6440
    sport:
    H6711
    and they set
    H5975
    him between the pillars.
    H5982
  26. 26. And Samson
    H8123
    said
    H559
    unto the lad
    H5288
    that held
    H2388
    him by the hand,
    H3027
    Suffer
    H3240
    me that I may feel
    H4184
    H3237
    the pillars
    H5982
    whereupon the house
    H1004
    standeth,
    H3559
    that I may lean
    H8172
    upon them.
  27. 27. Now the house
    H1004
    was full
    H4390
    of men
    H582
    and women;
    H802
    and all the lords
    H5633
    of the Philistines
    H6430
    were there; and there were upon the roof
    H1406
    about three
    H7969
    thousand
    H505
    men
    H376
    and women,
    H802
    that beheld
    H7200
    while Samson
    H8123
    made sport.
    H7832
  28. 28. And Samson
    H8123
    called
    H7121
    unto the LORD,
    H3068
    and said,
    H559
    O Lord
    H136
    GOD,
    H3069
    remember
    H2142
    me, I pray thee, and strengthen
    H2388
    me, I pray thee, only this once,
    H6471
    O God,
    H430
    that I may be at once
    H259
    avenged
    H5358
    H5359
    of the Philistines
    H6430
    for my two
    H8147
    eyes.
    H5869
  29. 29. And Samson
    H8123
    took hold
    H3943
    of the two
    H8147
    middle
    H8432
    pillars
    H5982
    upon which the house
    H1004
    stood,
    H3559
    and on which it was borne up,
    H5564
    of the one
    H259
    with his right hand,
    H3225
    and of the other
    H259
    with his left.
    H8040
  30. 30. And Samson
    H8123
    said,
    H559
    Let me die
    H4191
    H5315
    with the Philistines.
    H6430
    And he bowed
    H5186
    himself with all his might;
    H3581
    and the house
    H1004
    fell
    H5307
    upon the lords,
    H5633
    and upon all the people
    H5971
    that were therein. So the dead
    H4191
    which he slew
    H4191
    at his death
    H4194
    were more
    H7227
    than they which he slew
    H4191
    in his life.
    H2416
  31. 31. Then his brethren
    H251
    and all the house
    H1004
    of his father
    H1
    came down,
    H3381
    and took
    H5375
    him, and brought him up,
    H5927
    and buried
    H6912
    him between Zorah
    H6881
    and Eshtaol
    H847
    in the buryingplace
    H6913
    of Manoah
    H4495
    his father.
    H1
    And he judged
    H8199
    Israel
    H3478
    twenty
    H6242
    years.
