Judges 13, 14 & 15
1Again the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the
Lord, and the Lord delivered them into the hand of the
Philistines for forty years. 2Now there was Manoah and his
wife and 3the Angel of the Lord appeared to the woman and
said to her, "Indeed, you have borne no children, but you
shall conceive and bear a son. 4Be careful not to drink wine,
and not to eat anything unclean. 5For you shall conceive and
bear a son. No razor shall come upon his head. The child
shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb, and he shall begin
to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines."
24The woman bore a son called Samson; the child grew and the Lord blessed him, 25and began to move upon him. 5Samson went down to Timah with his father and mother.
To his surprise, a young lion came roaring against him. 6The Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he tore the lion apart, though he had nothing in his hand.
9At a later time the Philistines went up, encamped in Judah, and deployed themselves. 10The men of Judah said, "Why have you come up against us?" So they answered, "We have come to arrest Samson, to do to him as he has done to us." 11Then three thousand men of Judah said to Samson, "Do you not know that the Philistines rule over us? What is this you have done to us?" He said, "As they did to me, so I have done to them." 13But they said, "We have come down to arrest you, that we may deliver you to the Philistines." Samson said,
"Swear that you will not kill me yourselves." 13They bound
him with two new ropes and brought him up from the rock.
14The Philistines came shouting against him. Then the
Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him; and the ropes
became like flax, and his bonds broke loose from his hands.
15He found a fresh jawbone of a donkey, and killed a
thousand men with it.
18Then he became very thirsty; so he cried out to the Lord
and said, "You have given this great deliverance by the hand
of Your servant; and now shall I die of thirst and fall into the
hand of the uncircumcised?" 19So God split the hollow place
that is in Lehi, and water came out. He drank and his spirit returned, and he revived.
20Samson judged Israel twenty years in the days of the Philistines. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
