1 Şimşon bir gün Timnaya gitti. Orada Filistli bir kadın gördü.

2 Geri dönünce annesiyle babasına, ‹‹Timnada Filistli bir kadın gördüm›› dedi, ‹‹Onu hemen bana eş olarak alın.››

3 Annesiyle babası, ‹‹Akrabalarının ya da halkımızın kızları arasında kimse yok mu ki, sünnetsiz Filistlilerden kız almaya kalkıyorsun?›› diye karşılık verdiler. Ama Şimşon babasına, ‹‹Bana o kadını al, ondan hoşlanıyorum›› dedi.

4 Şimşonun annesiyle babası bunu isteyenin RAB olduğunu anlamadılar. Çünkü RAB o sırada İsraillilere egemen olan Filistlilere karşı fırsat kolluyordu.

5 Böylece Şimşon annesi ve babasıyla Timnaya doğru yola koyuldu. Timna bağlarına vardıklarında, genç bir aslan kükreyerek Şimşonun karşısına çıktı.

6 Şimşon üzerine inen RABbin Ruhuyla güçlendi ve aslanı bir oğlak parçalar gibi çıplak elle parçaladı. Ama yaptığını ne annesine ne de babasına bildirdi.

7 Sonra gidip kadınla konuştu ve ondan çok hoşlandı.

8 Bir süre sonra kadınla evlenmek üzere yine Timnaya giderken, aslanın leşini görmek için yoldan saptı. Bir arı sürüsünün aslanın leşini kovana çevirdiğini gördü.

9 Kovandaki balı avuçlarına doldurdu, yiye yiye oradan uzaklaştı. Annesiyle babasının yanına varınca baldan onlara da verdi, onlar da yedi. Ama balı aslanın leşinden aldığını söylemedi.

10 Babası kadını görmeye gidince, Şimşon da damat geleneğine uyarak orada bir şölen düzenledi.

11 Filistliler onu görünce ona eşlik etmek üzere otuz genç getirdiler.

12 Şimşon onlara, ‹‹Size bir bilmece sorayım›› dedi, ‹‹Şölenin yedi günü içinde kesin yanıtı bulup bana bildirirseniz, size otuz keten mintan, otuz takım da üst giysi vereceğim.

13 Ama bilmeceyi çözemezseniz, o zaman da siz bana otuz keten mintanla otuz takım üst giysi vereceksiniz.›› Ona, ‹‹Seni dinliyoruz›› dediler, ‹‹Söyle bakalım bilmeceni.››

14 Şimşon, ‹‹Yiyenden yiyecek,
Güçlüden tatlı çıktı››

15 Dördüncü gün gençler Şimşonun karısına, ‹‹Kocanı kandır da bize bilmecenin yanıtını versin›› dediler, ‹‹Yoksa, seni de babanın evini de yakarız. Bizi soymak için mi buraya çağırdınız?›› Masoretik metin ‹‹Yedinci››.

16 Şimşonun karısı ağlayarak ona, ‹‹Benden nefret ediyorsun›› dedi, ‹‹Beni sevmiyorsun. Soydaşlarıma bir bilmece sordun, yanıtını bana söylemedin.›› Şimşon karısına, ‹‹Bak›› dedi, ‹‹Anneme babama bile söylemedim, sana mı söyleyeceğim?››

17 Kadın şölen boyunca yedi gün ağlayıp durdu. Kadının sürekli sıkıştırması üzerine Şimşon yedinci gün bilmecenin yanıtını ona söyledi. Kadın da yanıtı soydaşlarına iletti.

18 Yedinci gün, gün batmadan kentli gençler Şimşona geldiler. ‹‹Baldan tatlı,
Aslandan güçlü ne var?›› Şimşon, ‹‹Düvemle çift sürmüş olmasaydınız, bilmecemi çözemezdiniz›› diye karşılık verdi.

19 RABbin Ruhu üzerine inince güçlenen Şimşon Aşkelona gitti; otuz kişi vurup mallarını yağmaladı, giysilerini de bilmeceyi çözenlere verdi. Öfkeden kudurmuş bir halde babasının evine döndü.

20 Şimşon'un karısı ise Şimşon'a eşlik eden sağdıca verildi.

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).
