1 At naparoon si Samson sa Gaza, at nakakita roon ng isang patutot at sinipingan.

2 At ibinalita sa mga taga Gaza na sinasabi, Si Samson ay naparito. At kanilang kinulong siya, at binakayan siya buong gabi sa pintuang-bayan, at tahimik buong gabi, na sinasabi, Maghintay tayo hanggang magbukang liwayway, saka natin patayin siya.

3 At si Samson ay humiga hanggang hating gabi, at bumangon sa hating gabi at humawak sa mga pinto ng pintuang-bayan, at sa dalawang haligi, at kapuwa binunot, pati ng sikang, at pinasan sa kaniyang mga balikat, at isinampa sa taluktok ng bundok na nasa tapat ng Hebron.

4 At nangyari pagkatapos, na siya'y suminta sa isang babae sa libis ng Sorec, na ang pangala'y Dalila.

5 At inahon ng mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo ang babae, at sinabi sa kaniya: Dayain mo siya, at tingnan mo kung saan naroon ang kaniyang dakilang kalakasan, at sa anong paraan mananaig kami laban sa kaniya upang aming matalian at mapighati siya: at bibigyan ka ng bawa't isa sa amin ng isang libo't isang daang putol na pilak.

6 At sinabi ni Dalila kay Samson, Saysayin mo sa akin, isinasamo ko sa iyo, kung saan naroon ang iyong dakilang kalakasan, at kung paanong matatalian ka upang pighatiin ka.

7 At sinabi ni Samson sa kaniya, Kung tatalian nila ako ng pitong sariwang yantok na kailan man ay hindi natuyo, ay hihina ako, at ako'y magiging gaya ng alinmang tao.

8 Nang magkagayo'y nagdala ang mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo sa kaniya ng pitong sariwang yantok na hindi pa natutuyo, at ipinagtali niya sa kaniya.

9 Ngayo'y may mga bakay na sa silid sa loob. At sinabi niya sa kaniya, Narito na sa iyo ang mga Filisteo, Samson. At kaniyang pinatid ang mga yantok, na tulad sa taling estopa pagka nadidikitan ng apoy. Sa gayo'y hindi naalaman ang kaniyang lakas.

10 At sinabi ni Dalila kay Samson, Narito, pinaglaruan mo ako, at pinagbulaanan mo ako: isinasamo ko ngayon sa iyo na saysayin mo sa akin kung paano matatalian ka.

11 At sinabi niya sa kaniya, Kung tatalian lamang nila ako ng mga bagong lubid na hindi pa nagagamit, ay hihina nga ako at magiging gaya ng alinmang tao.

12 Sa gayo'y kumuha si Dalila ng mga bagong lubid, at itinali sa kaniya, at sinabi sa kaniya, Narito na sa iyo ang mga Filisteo, Samson. At ang mga bakay ay nangasa silid sa loob. At pawang pinatid niya sa kaniyang mga bisig na parang sinulid.

13 At sinabi ni Dalila kay Samson, Hanggang dito'y pinaglaruan mo ako, at pinagbulaanan mo ako: saysayin mo sa akin kung paanong matatalian ka. At sinabi niya sa kaniya, Kung iyong hahabihin ang pitong tirintas sa aking ulo ng hinabing kayo.

14 At kaniyang pinagtibay ng tulos, at sinabi sa kaniya, Narito na sa iyo ang mga Filisteo, Samson. At siya'y gumising sa kaniyang pagkakatulog, at binunot ang tulos ng panghabi, at ang hinabi.

15 At sinabi niya sa kaniya, Bakit nasasabi mo, na iniibig kita, sa bagay ang iyong puso ay hindi sumasaakin? pinaglaruan mo akong makaitlo, at hindi mo isinaysay sa akin kung saan nagpapahinga ang iyong dakilang kalakasan.

16 At nangyari, nang kaniyang igiit araw araw, at kaniyang ipilit sa kaniya, na ang kaniyang loob ay naligalig sa ikamamatay.

17 At isinaysay niya sa kaniya ang kaniyang buong taglayin sa kaniyang puso, at sinabi sa kaniya, Walang pangahit na nagdaan sa aking ulo; sapagka't ako'y naging Nazareo sa Dios mula sa tiyan ng aking ina: kung ako'y ahitan, hihiwalay nga sa akin ang aking lakas, at ako'y hihina, at magiging gaya ng alinmang tao.

18 At nang makita ni Dalila na sinaysay sa kaniya, ang buong taglayin niya sa kaniyang puso, ay nagsugo siya at tinawag ang mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo, na sinasabi, Ahunin pa ninyong minsan, sapagka't sinaysay niya sa akin ang buong taglayin niya sa kaniyang puso. Nang magkagayo'y inahon siya ng mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo, at nagdala ng salapi sa kanilang kamay.

19 At pinatulog niya siya sa kaniyang mga tuhod; at nagpatawag siya ng isang lalake, at inahit ang pitong tirintas sa kaniyang ulo; at pinasimulan niyang pighatiin siya, at ang kaniyang lakas ay nawala.

20 At sinabi niya, Narito na sa iyo ang mga Filisteo, Samson. At siya'y gumising sa kaniyang pagkakatulog, at sinabi, Ako'y lalabas na gaya ng dati, at ako'y magpupumiglas. Nguni't hindi niya talos na ang Panginoo'y humiwalay sa kaniya.

21 At hinuli ng mga Filisteo, at dinukit ang kaniyang mga mata; at inilusong nila sa Gaza, at tinalian siya ng mga pangaw na tanso; at siya'y gumiling sa bilangguan.

22 Gayon ma'y nagpasimulang tumubo uli ang buhok ng kaniyang ulo, pagkatapos na siya'y maahitan.

23 At nagpipisan ang mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo upang maghandog ng isang dakilang hain kay Dagon na kanilang dios, at mangagalak: sapagka't kanilang sinabi, Ibinigay ng ating dios si Samson na ating kaaway sa ating kamay.

24 At nang makita siya ng bayan, ay kanilang pinuri ang kanilang dios: sapagka't kanilang sinabi, Ibinigay ng ating dios sa ating kamay ang ating kaaway, at ang mangwawasak sa ating lupain, na pumatay sa marami sa atin.

25 At nangyari, nang masayahan ang kanilang puso, na kanilang sinabi, Tawagin si Samson, upang siya'y ating mapaglaruan. At tinawag nga si Samson mula sa bilangguan; at siya'y pinaglaruan nila. At kanilang inilagay sa pagitan ng mga haligi:

26 At sinabi ni Samson sa bata na umaakay sa kaniya sa kamay, Ipahipo mo sa akin ang mga haliging pumipigil ng bahay, upang aking mangahiligan.

27 Ang bahay nga ay puno ng mga lalake at babae, at ang lahat ng mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo ay nandoon; at sa bubungan ay may tatlong libong lalake at babae, na nanonood samantalang pinaglalaruan si Samson.

28 At tumawag si Samson sa Panginoon, at sinabi, Oh Panginoong Dios, idinadalangin ko sa iyo na alalahanin mo ako, at idinadalangin ko sa iyong palakasin mo ako, na minsan na lamang, Oh Dios, upang maiganti kong paminsan sa mga Filisteo ang aking dalawang mata.

29 At si Samson ay pumigil sa dalawang gitnang haligi na pumipigil ng bahay, at isinuhay sa mga yaon, ang isa sa kaniyang kanang kamay, at ang isa'y sa kaniyang kaliwa.

30 At sinabi ni Samson, Mamatay nawa akong kasama ng mga Filisteo, At iniubos niya ang kaniyang buong lakas; at ang bahay ay bumagsak sa mga pangulo, at sa buong bayan na nandoon sa loob. Sa gayo'y ang nangamatay na kaniyang pinatay sa kaniyang kamatayan ay higit kay sa pinatay niya sa kaniyang kabuhayan.

31 Nang magkagayo'y lumusong ang kaniyang mga kapatid at ang buong sangbahayan ng kaniyang ama, at kinuha siya, at iniahon siya, at inilibing siya sa pagitan ng Sora at Esthaol sa libingan ni Manoa na kaniyang ama. At siya'y naghukom sa Israel na dalawang pung taon.

Exploring the Meaning of Judges 16      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Judges 16: Samson and Delilah; Samson dies with the Philistines.

In this final chapter about Samson, he becomes involved with two women, and both episodes lead him to fight for his life.

The first woman was a prostitute from Gaza, a Philistine town. When the men of Gaza heard that Samson was visiting this woman, they lay in wait for him all night, so that they could kill him in the morning. Samson foiled their plot by sneaking out at midnight. As he was leaving, he took the gates of the city and its two posts, put them upon his shoulders, and took them to the top of a hill facing Hebron, a town in Israel.

Some time later, Samson began to love an Israelite woman called Delilah, whose name means “lustful pining”. The lords of the Philistines bribed her to find out the source of Samson’s strength, so that they could take him prisoner. After deceiving her three times and evading her almost-daily questions, Samson finally admitted that his strength lay in his hair; if it were cut, he would be like any other man.

Delilah told this to the the lords of the Philistines, and they paid her the bribe. She lulled Samson to sleep, and had a man shave off all of Samson’s hair. She called out as she had the first three times: “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” He awoke, but he was as weak as a normal man. The Philistines took him captive, gouged out his eyes, and forced him to work as a mill grinder in prison. However, while he was in prison, his hair began to grow back.

When the Philistines gathered to make a great sacrifice in the temple of their god, Dagon, to celebrate the capture of Samson, 3000 Philistine men and women were there, plus all of their kings. Samson was brought in as a spectacle to be mocked. He could feel his strength returning, and asked the boy leading him to let him lean against the two central columns of the temple. Samson prayed to the Lord, and pushed the columns until the temple collapsed, killing everyone there. That day, Samson brought about the death of more Philistines than he had in his life. His family took his body, and buried him between Zorah (“stricken”) and Eshtaol (“supplication”) in his father’s tomb.

*****

This chapter demonstrates the temptations and potential pitfalls of faith-alone spirituality, specifically through the women that Samson was involved with. Both of these episodes - the first with the prostitute from Gaza, and the second with Delilah - highlight Samson’s brazen passions and his apparent faults and weaknesses. Samson represents our determination to overcome the draw of faith alone, which the hells employ in order to ensnare us, and then rule us. The Lord’s teachings through the Word often precipitate a struggle within us between our lusts from the hells and our spiritual intentions (see Swedenborg’s work, Apocalypse Revealed 678[2] and Apocalypse Revealed 798[2]).

Seizing the gates and gateposts stands for changing the focus of our spiritual view. Gates represent the entry and exit points to our hearts and minds, through which we receive the Lord and the Word, but also the influences of hell (see Swedenborg’s work, Divine Providence 119). The top of the hill stands for a mind raised up toward God, and ‘facing Hebron’ is representative of a new focus on the unity between us and the Word, for Hebron means ‘joined, brotherhood, unity’.

After three failed attempts, Delilah discovered that Samson’s strength lay in his hair, which had never been cut. Hair stands for the power and beauty of the Word in its literal sense, and our faithfulness in abiding by its truths (see Swedenborg’s works, Arcana Caelestia 9836[2] and Doctrine of the Lord 15[8]).

Samson’s imprisonment and abuse by the Philistines symbolize a period of spiritual turmoil, during which we are misled by the hells. Blindness corresponds to our inability to see or recognize truths; ‘grinding grain at the mill’ is like molding truths from the Word to support our own purposes - in this case, faith alone spirituality (Arcana Caelestia 10303[5] and Arcana Caelestia 10303[6]). Yet all the while, our ability to follow the Lord will gradually restrengthen, represented by Samson’s hair growing back.

In the last moments of his life, Samson brought down the temple of Dagon, killing three thousand of the Philistines at once. The two supporting columns of the Philistine temple stand for what is evil and what is false; when evil and falsity are toppled, the whole system of belief collapses. In sacrificing his life, Samson demonstrated the highest of all divine and heavenly loves (see Arcana Caelestia 2077[2]).
