1 Bir süre sonra, buğday biçimi sırasında Şimşon bir oğlak alıp karısını ziyarete gitti. ‹‹Karımın odasına girmek istiyorum›› dedi. Ama kızın babası Şimşonun girmesine izin vermedi.

2 ‹‹Ondan gerçekten nefret ettiğini sanıyordum›› dedi, ‹‹Bu nedenle onu senin sağdıcına verdim. Küçük kızkardeşi ondan daha güzel değil mi? Ablasının yerine onu al.››

3 Şimşon, ‹‹Bu kez Filistlilere kötülük etsem de buna hakkım var›› dedi.

4 Kıra çıkıp üç yüz çakal yakaladı. Sonra çakalları çifter çifter kuyruk kuyruğa bağladı. Kuyruklarının arasına da birer çıra sıkıştırdı.

5 Çıraları tutuşturup çakalları Filistlilerin ekinlerinin arasına salıverdi. Böylece demetleri, ekinleri, bağları, zeytinlikleri yaktı.

6 Filistliler, ‹‹Bunu kim yaptı?›› dediler, ‹‹Yapsa yapsa, Timnalının damadı Şimşon yapmıştır. Çünkü Timnalı karısını elinden alıp sağdıcına verdi.›› Sonra gidip kadınla babasını yaktılar.

7 Şimşon onlara, ‹‹Madem böyle yaptınız, sizden öcümü almadan duramam›› dedi.

8 Onlara acımasızca saldırarak çoğunu öldürdü, sonra Etam Kayalığına çekilip bir mağaraya sığındı.

9 Filistliler de gidip Yahudada ordugah kurdular, Lehi yöresine yayıldılar.

10 Yahudalılar, ‹‹Neden bizimle savaşmaya geldiniz?›› diye sorunca, Filistliler, ‹‹Şimşonu yakalamaya geldik, bize yaptığının aynısını ona yapmak için buradayız›› diye karşılık verdiler.

11 Yahudalılardan üç bin kişi, Etam Kayalığındaki mağaraya giderek Şimşona, ‹‹Filistlilerin bize egemen olduklarını bilmiyor musun? Nedir bu bize yaptığın?›› dediler. Şimşon, ‹‹Onlar bana ne yaptılarsa ben de onlara öyle yaptım›› diye karşılık verdi.

12 ‹‹Seni yakalayıp Filistlilere teslim etmek için geldik›› dediler. Şimşon, ‹‹Beni öldürmeyeceğinize ant için›› dedi.

13 Onlar da, ‹‹Olur, ama seni sıkıca bağlayıp onlara teslim edeceğiz›› dediler, ‹‹Söz veriyoruz, seni öldürmeyeceğiz.›› Sonra onu iki yeni urganla bağlayıp mağaradan çıkardılar.

14 Şimşon Lehiye yaklaşınca, Filistliler bağırarak ona yöneldiler. RABbin Ruhu büyük bir güçle Şimşonun üzerine indi. Şimşonun kollarını saran urganlar yanan keten gibi dağıldı, elindeki bağlar çözüldü.

15 Şimşon yeni ölmüş bir eşeğin çene kemiğini eline alıp bununla bin kişiyi öldürdü.

16 Sonra şöyle dedi: ‹‹Bir eşeğin çene kemiğiyle,
İki eşek yığını yaptım,
Eşeğin çene kemiğiyle bin kişiyi öldürdüm.››

17 Bunları söyledikten sonra çene kemiğini elinden attı. Oraya Ramat-Lehi adı verildi.

18 Şimşon ölesiye susamıştı. RABbe şöyle yakardı: ‹‹Kulunun eliyle büyük bir kurtuluş sağladın. Ama şimdi susuzluktan ölüp sünnetsizlerin eline mi düşeceğim?››

19 Bunun üzerine Tanrı Lehideki çukuru yardı. Çukurdan su fışkırdı. Şimşon suyu içince canlanıp güçlendi. Suyun çıktığı yere Eyn-Hakkore adını verdi. Pınar bugün de Lehide duruyor.

20 Şimşon Filistliler'in egemenliği sırasında İsrailliler'e yirmi yıl önderlik yaptı.

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]).
