1 És lement Sámson Timnátba, és meglátott egy nõt Timnátban a Filiszteusok lányai közül.

2 És mikor [haza]ment, elbeszélte [ezt] atyjának és anyjának, és monda: Egy nõt láttam Timnátban a Filiszteusok leányai között, most azért vegyétek õt nékem feleségül.

3 És monda néki az õ atyja és anyja: Hát nincsen a te atyádfiainak és az én egész népemnek leányai között nõ, hogy te elmégy, hogy feleséget végy a körülmetéletlen Filiszteusok közül? És monda Sámson az õ atyjának: Õt vegyed nékem, mert [csak] õ kedves az én szemeim elõtt.

4 Az õ atyja és anyja pedig nem tudják vala, hogy ez az Úrtól van, hogy õ alkalmatosságot keres a Filiszteusok ellen, mert abban az idõben a Filiszteusok uralkodtak Izráel felett.

5 És lement Sámson az õ atyjával és anyjával Timnátba, és mikor Timnátnak szõlõhegyéhez értek, íme [egy] oroszlánkölyök [jött] ordítva elébe.

6 És felindítá õt az Úrnak lelke, és [úgy] kettészakasztá azt, mint a hogyan kettészakasztatik a gödölye; pedig semmi sem volt kezében. De atyjának és anyjának nem mondta el, a mit cselekedett.

7 És mikor leérkezett, beszélt a nõvel, a ki kedves volt Sámson szemei elõtt.

8 Mikor pedig egynéhány nappal azután visszatért, hogy õt hazavigye, lekerült, hogy megnézze az oroszlánnak holttestét: hát íme egy raj méh volt az oroszlánnak tetemében, és méz.

9 És kiszedte azt markaiba, és a mint ment-mendegélt, eszegetett belõle, és mikor hazaért atyjához és anyjához, adott abból nékik is, és azok is ettek; de nem mondta meg nékik, hogy az oroszlán holttetemébõl vette ki a mézet.

10 És azután lement az õ atyja [ahhoz] a nõhöz, és Sámson lakodalmat tartott ott, mert úgy szoktak cselekedni az ifjak.

11 Mikor pedig meglátták õt a [Filiszteusok,] harmincz társat adtak mellé, hogy legyenek õ vele.

12 És monda nékik Sámson: Hadd vessek elõtökbe egy találós mesét, ha azt megfejtitek nékem a lakodalom hét napja alatt és kitaláljátok; adok néktek harmincz inget és harmincz öltözõ ruhát;

13 De ha nem tudjátok megfejteni, ti adtok nékem harmincz inget és harmincz öltözõ ruhát. Azok pedig mondának néki: Add elõ találós mesédet, hadd halljuk.

14 Õ pedig monda nékik:

15 Lõn annakokáért heted napon, mondának Sámson feleségének: Vedd reá férjedet, hogy fejtse meg nékünk a találós mesét, hogy valamiképen meg ne égessünk téged és a te atyádnak házát tûzzel; [vagy] azért hívtatok [ide] minket, hogy koldussá tegyetek bennünket, vagy nem?

16 És sírt a Sámson felesége õ elõtte, és monda: Bizony te gyûlölsz engem, és nem szeretsz. Egy találós mesét vetettél az én népem fiai elé és nékem sem fejtetted meg. Õ pedig monda néki: Íme még atyámnak és anyámnak sem mondtam meg, hát néked mondanám meg?

17 Az pedig hét napon át sírdogált elõtte, a meddig a lakodalom tartott. [Végre] a hetedik napon megmondá néki, mert [folyvást] zaklatta õt. Õ pedig [aztán] megfejté a találós mesét népe fiainak.

18 És mondának néki a város férfiai a hetedik napon, mielõtt még a nap lement volna: Mi édesebb, mint a méz,

19 Ekkor felindítá õt az Úrnak lelke, és elment Askelonba, és megölt közülök harmincz férfiút, és elvette ruhájukat és azoknak adta ez öltözõ ruhákat, a kik a találós mesét megoldották. És felgerjedett haragjában elment az õ atyjának házához.

20 A Sámson felesége pedig férjhez ment az õ egyik társához, a kit társaságába vett vala.

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).
