1 Kord läks Simson alla Timnasse ja nägi Timnas ühte naist vilistite tütarde hulgast.

2 Ta tuli üles ja jutustas oma isale ja emale ning ütles: 'Ma nägin Timnas ühte naist vilistite tütarde hulgast; võtke ta nüüd mulle naiseks!'

3 Tema isa, samuti ta ema küsisid temalt: 'Kas ei ole naist su vendade tütarde hulgas ja kogu mu rahva hulgas, et sa lähed naist võtma ümberlõikamata vilistite hulgast?' Aga Simson vastas oma isale: 'Võta ta mulle, sest tema on minu silmis see õige!'

4 Tema isa ja ema aga ei teadnud, et see tuli Issandalt, kes otsis põhjust vilistite vastu; sel ajal valitsesid vilistid Iisraeli üle.

5 Nii läks Simson isa ja emaga alla Timnasse; aga kui nad jõudsid Timna viinamägede juurde, vaata, siis tuli üks noor lõvi möirates temale vastu.

6 Aga Issanda Vaim tuli võimsasti tema peale ja ta kiskus lõvi lõhki, otsekui oleks ta kitsetalle lõhki kiskunud, kuigi tal ei olnud käes mitte midagi; oma isale ja emale ta aga ei jutustanud, mis ta oli teinud.

7 Seejärel läks ta alla ja kõneles naisega, kes Simsoni silmis oli meeldiv.

8 Mõne aja pärast, olles teel tagasi teda võtma, põikas ta vaatama lõvi raibet, ja ennäe, lõvi korjuses oli mesilaspere ja mett.

9 Ta kaapis mett oma pihkudesse, läks edasi ja sõi; ja ta tuli oma isa ja ema juurde ning andis ka neile ja nemad sõid; aga ta ei jutustanud neile, et ta oli mee kaapinud lõvi korjusest.

10 Kui ta isa tuli alla naise juurde, siis valmistas Simson seal peo, sest nõnda oli poissmeestel viisiks teha.

11 Ja kui nad teda nägid, siis tõid nad kolmkümmend peiupoissi, et need oleksid ta juures.

12 Ja Simson ütles neile: 'Ma annan teile nüüd ühe mõistatuse mõistatada: kui te seitsme pidupäeva jooksul seletate selle mulle õigesti ja leiate lahenduse, siis ma annan teile kolmkümmend särki ja kolmkümmend piduriietust.

13 Aga kui te ei suuda seda mulle seletada, siis peate teie mulle andma kolmkümmend piduriietust.' Ja nad ütlesid temale: 'Anna oma mõistatus mõistatada, me oleme valmis kuulma!'

14 Siis ta ütles neile: 'Sööjast tuli söök ja tugevast tuli magus.' Aga nad ei suutnud kolmel päeval mõistatust seletada.

15 Neljandal päeval ütlesid nad Simsoni naisele: 'Meelita oma meest, et ta seletaks meile mõistatuse, et me sind ja su isakoda tulega ära ei põletaks! Kas olete meid kutsunud, et teha meid vaeseks, või kuidas?'

16 Siis Simsoni naine nuttis tema juures ning ütles: 'Sina ainult vihkad mind ega armasta mind! Sa oled andnud mu rahva poegadele mõistatada ühe mõistatuse, aga ei ole seda mulle seletanud!' Ta vastas temale: 'Vaata, ma ei ole seletanud oma isale ja emale, aga peaksin seletama sinule?'

17 Tema aga nuttis ta juures need seitse päeva, mil neil oli pidu; ja seitsmendal päeval seletas Simson temale, sest naine ajas teda kitsikusse; ja naine seletas mõistatuse oma rahva poegadele.

18 Siis ütlesid linna mehed temale seitsmendal päeval, enne kui päike oli loojunud: 'Mis on meest magusam ja kes on lõvist tugevam?' Ja tema vastas neile: 'Kui te mu õhvakesega ei oleks kündnud, ei oleks te mu mõistatust lahendanud!'

19 Siis tuli Issanda Vaim võimsasti Simsoni peale ja ta läks alla Askeloni ning lõi neist maha kolmkümmend meest, võttis nende riided ja andis piduriietuseks mõistatuse seletajaile. Ta viha süttis põlema ja ta läks oma isakotta.

20 Simsoni naine sai aga sellele peiupoisile, kes oli olnud temale isameheks.

Exploring the Meaning of Judges 14      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Judges 14: Samson’s Philistine wife.

At the time of Samson, the Philistines were fiercely oppressing Israel. The Philistines lived on the coast, and they may well have come from overseas. They lived in the region for about 600 years, and the Old Testament refers to many later conflicts with the Philistines.

One day, Samson saw a young Philistine woman in Timnath, and he asked his parents to get her for his wife. They asked why he did not choose an Israelite woman, but he insisted on marrying the woman he saw in Timnath, so they all went to meet her. On the way, Samson was attacked by a lion, and he tore it apart with his bare hands. After some time, when he passed by the same place, there was a swarm of bees and honey inside the lion’s carcass. He ate some of the honey, and even brought some of it to his parents, but he did not tell them where it came from.

The woman pleased Samson, and he arranged a feast to which thirty companions were invited. At the feast, Samson told them a riddle: “Out of the eater came something to eat, out of the strong came something sweet.” He said that if they solved the riddle in the seven days of the feast, he would give them thirty linen sheets and thirty changes of clothing. If not, they were to give him the same. They could not solve the riddle for three days, so they convinced Samson’s wife to beg him for the answer. At the end of seven days, the men answered Samson’s riddle, and he was furious.

Then the Lord’s spirit came upon Samson, and he killed thirty Philistine men from Ashkelon, took their garments, and gave these to the thirty men at the feast. His wife was given to his companion.

*****

The spiritual meaning of the powerful Philistines is believing faith is all-important, and does not require charity or good works in life — a fundamental spiritual error. This way of thinking is called ‘faith alone’ spirituality, and it can take many forms. The proximity of the Philistines to Israel is also significant, as it suggests that the temptation to prefer faith without considering charity is never far away (see Swedenborg’s work, True Christian Religion 200[3]).

The pursuit of a Philistine wife reflects the alluring nature of faith without charity, an easy, complacent spirituality. The young lion represents the force of faith alone to hold us in its grip. The honey stands for the spiritual sweetness following regeneration, as we use our faith to expand our hearts and minds (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 5620[1]).

Samson’s riddle stands for the puzzling nature of the Word’s teachings to those living by faith alone. The number thirty stands for what is whole, in this instance, the completely opposing nature of faith alone and true spiritual living. The linen sheets and changes of clothing mean taking up a genuine spiritual life which involves repentance, living the by the Word, and acknowledging the Lord. Linen is the material of a priest’s robes, and stands for the highest spiritual truths (Arcana Caelestia 5319[7]).

This end of this story shows us that faith alone doubles back on itself, and leads to a completely external understanding of the Lord. This is seen in taking garments from the thirty dead Philistines and giving them to the Philistines from the feast. Samson’s wife, who was given to his Philistine companion, stands for the complete divide between faith alone and love for the Lord. Samson’s apparent anger is really the zeal of protecting the nature of true spiritual life, which comes from the Lord (see Swedenborg’s work, Apocalypse Revealed 365).
