1 がたって後、麦刈の時にサムソンは子やぎを携えてをおとずれ、「へやにはいって、に会いましょう」と言ったが、妻の父ははいることを許さなかった。

2 そして父は言った、「あなたが確かに彼女をきらったに相違ないと思ったので、わたしは彼女をあなたの客であった者にやりました。彼女の妹は彼女よりもきれいではありませんか。どうぞ、彼女の代りに妹をめとってください」。

3 サムソンは彼らに言った、「今度はわたしがペリシテびとにを加えても、彼らのことでは、わたしに罪がない」。

4 そこでサムソンは行って、きつね匹を捕え、たいまつをとり、をあわせて、そのつのの間に一つのたいまつを結びつけ、

5 たいまつにをつけて、そのきつねをペリシテびとのまだ刈らない麦の中に放し入れ、そのたばね積んだものと、まだ刈らないものとを焼き、オリブ畑をも焼いた。

6 ペリシテびとは言った、「これはだれのしわざか」。人々は言った、「テムナびとの婿サムソンだ。そのしゅうとがサムソンを取り返して、その客であった者に与えたからだ」。そこでペリシテびとは上ってきて彼女とその父の家をで焼き払った。

7 サムソンは彼らに言った、「あなたがたがそんなことをするならば、わたしはあなたがたに仕返しせずにはおかない」。

8 そしてサムソンは彼らを、さんざんに撃って大ぜい殺した。こうしてサムソンは下って行って、エタムのの裂け目に住んでいた

9 そこでペリシテびとは上ってきて、ユダに陣を取り、レヒを攻めたので、

10 ユダの人々は言った、「あなたがたはどうしてわれわれのところに攻めのぼってきたのですか」。彼らは言った、「われわれはサムソンを縛り、彼がわれわれにしたように、彼にするために上ってきたのです」。

11 そこでユダの人々人がエタムのの裂け目に下って行って、サムソンに言った、「ペリシテびとはわれわれの支配者であることをあなたは知らないのですか。あなたはどうしてわれわれにこんな事をしたのですか」。サムソンは彼らに言った、「彼らがわたしにしたように、わたしは彼らにしたのです」。

12 彼らはまたサムソンに言った、「われわれはあなたを縛って、ペリシテびとのにわたすために下ってきたのです」。サムソンは彼らに言った、「あなたがた自身はわたしを撃たないということを誓いなさい」。

13 彼らはサムソンに言った、「いや、われわれはただ、あなたを縛って、ペリシテびとのにわたすだけです。決してあなたを殺しません」。彼らは本の新しい綱をもって彼を縛って、からひきあげた。

14 サムソンがレヒにきたとき、ペリシテびとは声をあげて、彼に近づいた。その時、主の霊が激しく彼に臨んだので、彼のにかかっていた綱はに焼けた亜麻のようになって、そのなわめがから解けて落ちた。

15 彼はろばの新しいあご骨一つを見つけたので、を伸べて取り、それをもって一人を打ち殺した。

16 そしてサムソンは言った、「ろばのあご骨をもって山また山を築き、ろばのあご骨をもって一人を打ち殺した」。

17 彼は言い終ると、そのからあご骨を投げすてた。これがためにその所は「あご骨の丘」と呼ばれた

18 時に彼はひどくかわきを覚えたので、に呼ばわって言った、「あなたはしもべのをもって、この大きな救を施されたのに、わたしは今、かわいて死に、割礼をうけないもののに陥ろうとしています」。

19 そこではレヒにあるくぼんだ所を裂かれたので、そこからが流れ出た。サムソンがそれを飲むと彼の霊はもとにかえって元気づいた。それでその名を「呼ばわった者の泉」と呼んだ。これは今日までレヒにある。サムソンはペリシテびとの時代に二十年の間イスラエルをさばいた。

20 サムソンはペリシテびとの時代に二十年の間イスラエルをさばいた。

Exploring the Meaning of Judges 15      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Judges 15: Samson defeats the Philistines.

At the beginning of this chapter, we learn that the one who gave Samson’s wife to another man was his father-in-law, who thought that Samson truly hated her. He then offered Samson her younger sister instead, saying, “Is she not better? Take her.”

Samson, enraged, took three-hundred foxes and tied them tail-to-tail in pairs, with a lit torch between them. He then released them in the Philistines’ standing grain, vineyards and olive groves to burn up their crops, as revenge for the loss of his wife. In retaliation, the Philistines went and burned her and her father. In a final act of vengeance, Samson killed very many of the Philistines, then went to dwell in the cleft of the rock of Etam.

The Philistines went to Judah, stating their intent to arrest Samson, and the men of Judah passed on the message to him. Samson made the Judeans promise not to kill him themselves, but only to bind him with two new ropes before giving him to the Philistines as a prisoner.

When the Philistines came, Samson broke apart the ropes, and killed a thousand of them with the jawbone of a donkey. Then he threw the jawbone away, and complained to the Lord that he was thirsty. The Lord answered his cry for help by splitting the ground where the jawbone fell, so that Samson could drink the water that flowed from it.

The final verse of this chapter tells us that Samson judged Israel twenty years.

*****

Samson’s marriage to a Philistine woman speaks to the appealing, or even enticing, nature of ‘faith alone’ spirituality, represented by the Philistines. We must stay on our guard, to ensure that we are not caught up in thinking that faith alone will save us. The father offers Samson his wife’s younger sister, saying she is even better, but Samson had already learned to be wary by that point.

The foxes, tied together with their tails lit on fire, vividly describes the twisted and destructive nature of faith alone, and the way it consumes our potential to lead a fruitful life. The Word often depicts the state of a nation or religion through a story illustrating its true nature (True Christian Religion 130)

The cycle of revenge between Samson and the Philistines represents our personal struggles during temptation and our wish to regenerate. Our whole effort during regeneration is to resist sins that might lure us in, and to maintain our intention to live the Word (see Swedenborg’s work, Divine Providence 83[6]). The men of Judah who bind Samson represent our love for the Lord and for everything of the Lord, although this seems contradictory on a surface level. In this case, being ‘bound up’ means to be bound in our commitment to the Lord, so that we are restrained from doing evil (see Swedenborg’s work, Heaven and Hell 577[4]).

Samson stands for the power of the Word acting in our lives to assert what is true, to protect what must be upheld, and to defend against evils. He uses the jawbone of a donkey because a jawbone allows us to eat food (spiritually, nourishment from the Word), and also to proclaim the Lord’s truths. This gives us the power to expose and reject the belief that spirituality consists of faith alone (see Swedenborg’s work, Arcana Caelestia 9049[6]).

主は愛そのものであり、知恵そのものの形で表現されます。それから、愛は彼の本質であり、彼の最深部です。知恵-愛を行動に移す方法についての愛情のある理解-はわずかに外的であり、愛に自分自身を表現する方法を与えます。 聖書が「エホバ」について語るとき、それは主の本質である最も深い愛を表しています。その愛はそれ自体で一つの完全で完全なものであり、エホバもまた一つであり、主にのみ適用される名前です。しかし、知恵は、著作がまとめて神の真実と呼ぶ、非常に多様な思考とアイデアで表現されます。また、多くの想像上の神がいます、そして時々天使と人々は神と呼ばれることができます(主はモーセがアーロンにとって神であると言った)。ですから、聖書が主を「神」と呼ぶとき、ほとんどの場合、それは神の真理を指します。 他の場合、「神」は神の人間と呼ばれるものに言及しています。これがある場合: 人間として、私たちは神の愛として主に直接関わることはできません。強力すぎて純粋すぎます。代わりに、神の真理を通して神を理解することによって、神にアプローチしなければなりません。神の真理は、人間の形の主であり、私たちがアプローチし理解できる形です。したがって、「神」は、この人間的側面に関しても使用されます。なぜなら、それは真実の表現だからです。
