1 At lumusong si Samson sa Timnah, at nakita ang isang babae sa Timnah sa mga anak ng mga Filisteo.

2 At siya'y umahon, at isinaysay sa kaniyang ama at sa kaniyang ina, at sinabi, Aking nakita ang isang babae sa Timnah, sa mga anak ng mga Filisteo: ngayon nga'y papagasawahin ninyo ako sa kaniya.

3 Nang magkagayo'y sinabi ng kaniyang ama at ng kaniyang ina sa kaniya, Wala na bang babae sa mga anak ng iyong kapatid, o sa aking buong bayan, na ikaw ay yayaong magaasawa sa mga di tuling Filisteo? At sinabi ni Samson sa kaniyang ama, Papag-asawahin mo ako sa kaniya; sapagka't siya'y lubhang nakalulugod sa akin.

4 Nguni't hindi naalaman ng kaniyang ama at ng kaniyang ina, na kalooban ng Panginoon; sapagka't siya'y humahanap ng pagkakataon laban sa mga Filisteo. Nang panahong yaon nga'y nagpupuno ang mga Filisteo sa Israel.

5 Nang magkagayo'y lumusong si Samson, at ang kaniyang ama, at ang kaniyang ina, sa Timnah, at naparoon sa ubasan ng Timnah: at, narito, isang batang leon ay umuungal laban sa kaniya,

6 At ang Espiritu ng Panginoon ay makapangyarihang sumakaniya, at nilamuray niya siya na parang naglamuray ng isang batang kambing, at siya'y walang anoman sa kaniyang kamay; nguni't hindi niya sinaysay sa kaniyang ama o sa kaniyang ina kung ano ang kaniyang ginawa.

7 At siya'y lumusong at nakipagusap sa babae, at siya'y lubhang nakalulugod kay Samson.

8 At pagkaraan ng sandali ay bumalik siya upang kunin niya siya, at siya'y lumiko upang tingnan ang patay na leon: at, narito, may isang kawan ng pukyutan sa loob ng bangkay ng leon, at pulot-pukyutan.

9 At kaniyang dinala sa kaniyang kamay at yumaon, na kinakain niya samantalang siya'y yumayaon, at siya'y naparoon sa kaniyang ama at ina, at ibinigay sa kanila, at kanilang kinain; nguni't hindi niya sinaysay sa kanila na kaniyang kinuha ang pulot sa bangkay ng leon.

10 At nilusong ng kaniyang ama ang babae: at gumawa si Samson ng isang kasayahan doon; sapagka't kinaugaliang ginagawang gayon ng mga binata.

11 At nangyari, pagkakita nila sa kaniya, na sila'y nagdala ng tatlong pung kasama, upang maging kasama niya.

12 At sinabi ni Samson sa kanila, Pagbubugtungan ko kayo: kung maisaysay ninyo sa akin sa loob ng pitong araw na kasayahan, at inyong maturingan, ay bibigyan ko nga kayo ng tatlong pung kasuutang lino at tatlong pung bihisan:

13 Nguni't kung hindi ninyo maisaysay sa akin, ay bibigyan nga ninyo ako ng tatlong pung kasuutang lino at ng tatlong pung bihisan. At kanilang sinabi sa kaniya, Ipagbadya mo ang iyong bugtong, upang aming marinig.

14 At sinabi niya sa kanila, Sa mangangain ay lumabas ang pagkain, At sa malakas ay lumabas ang katamisan. At hindi nila maisaysay sa tatlong araw.

15 At nangyari, nang ikapitong araw, na kanilang sinabi sa asawa ni Samson, Dayain mo ang iyong asawa, upang maisaysay niya sa amin ang bugtong, baka ikaw ay sunugin namin at ang sangbahayan ng iyong ama: inanyayahan ba ninyo kami upang papaghirapin? di ba gayon?

16 At umiyak ang asawa ni Samson sa harap niya, at nagsabi, Kinapopootan mo lamang ako, at hindi mo ako iniibig: ikaw ay nagbugtong ng isang bugtong sa mga anak ng aking bayan, at hindi mo isinaysay sa akin. At sinabi niya sa kaniya, Narito, hindi ko isinaysay sa aking ama, o sa aking ina man, at akin bang sasaysayin sa iyo?

17 At umiyak siya sa harap niya na pitong araw, habang hindi natapos ang kanilang kasayahan: at nangyari nang ikapitong araw, na isinaysay niya sa kaniya, sapagka't pinilit niya siya: at isinaysay niya ang bugtong sa mga anak ng kaniyang bayan.

18 At sinabi ng mga lalake sa bayan kay Samson nang ikapitong araw bago lumubog ang araw. Alin kaya ang lalong matamis kay sa pulot? at ano pa kaya ang lalong malakas kay sa leon? At sinabi niya sa kanila. Kung hindi kayo nag-araro ng aking dumalaga, Hindi sana ninyo naturingan ang aking bugtong.

19 At ang Espiritu ng Panginoon ay makapangyarihang sumakaniya, at siya'y lumusong sa Ascalon, at pumatay ng tatlong pung lalake sa kanila, at kinuha ang samsam sa kanila, at ibinigay ang mga bihisan sa mga nakaturing ng bugtong at ang kaniyang galit ay nagalab, at siya'y umahon sa bahay ng kaniyang ama.

20 Nguni't ang asawa ni Samson ay ibinigay sa kaniyang kasama, na siya niyang inaaring parang kaniyang kaibigan.

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).
