1 Şimşon bir gün Gazzeye gitti. Orada gördüğü bir fahişenin evine girdi.

2 Gazzelilere, ‹‹Şimşon buraya geldi›› diye haber verilince çevreyi kuşattılar. Bütün gece kentin kapısında pusuya yattılar. ‹‹Gün ağarınca onu öldürürüz›› diyerek gece boyunca yerlerinden kımıldamadılar.

3 Şimşon gece yarısına dek yattı. Gece yarısı kalktı, kent kapısının iki kanadıyla iki direğini tutup sürgüyle birlikte yerlerinden söktü. Hepsini omuzlayıp Hevronun karşısındaki tepeye çıkardı.

4 Bir süre sonra Şimşon Sorek Vadisinde yaşayan Delila adında bir kadına aşık oldu.

5 Filist beyleri kadına gelip, ‹‹Şimşonun üstün gücünün kaynağı nedir, onu kandırıp öğrenmeye bak›› dediler, ‹‹Böylece belki onu bağlar, etkisiz hale getirip yenebiliriz. Her birimiz sana bin yüzer parça gümüş vereceğiz.››

6 Bunun üzerine Delila Şimşona, ‹‹Lütfen, söyle bana, bu üstün gücü nereden alıyorsun?›› diye sordu, ‹‹Seni bağlayıp yenmek olası mı?››

7 Şimşon, ‹‹Beni kurumamış yedi taze sırımla bağlarlarsa sıradan bir adam gibi güçsüz olurum›› dedi.

8 Bunun üzerine Filist beyleri Delilaya kurumamış yedi taze sırım getirdiler. Delila bunlarla Şimşonu bağladı.

9 Adamları bitişik odada pusuya yatmıştı. Delila, ‹‹Şimşon, Filistliler geldi!›› dedi. Şimşon sırımları ateş değdiğinde dağılıveren kendir lifleri gibi koparıp attı. Gücünün sırrını vermemişti.

10 Delila, ‹‹Beni kandırdın, bana yalan söyledin›› dedi, ‹‹Lütfen söyle bana, seni neyle bağlamalı?››

11 Şimşon, ‹‹Beni hiç kullanılmamış yeni urganla sımsıkı bağlarlarsa sıradan bir adam gibi güçsüz olurum›› dedi.

12 Böylece Delila yeni urgan alıp Şimşonu bağladı. Sonra, ‹‹Şimşon, Filistliler geldi!›› dedi. Adamlar hâlâ bitişik odada pusu kurmuş bekliyorlardı. Şimşon urganları iplik koparır gibi koparıp kollarından sıyırdı.

13 Delila ona, ‹‹Şimdiye kadar beni hep kandırdın, bana yalan söyledin›› dedi, ‹‹Söyle bana, seni neyle bağlamalı?›› Şimşon, ‹‹Başımdaki yedi örgüyü dokuma tezgahındaki kumaşla birlikte dokuyup kazıkla burarsan sıradan bir adam gibi güçsüz olurum›› dedi.

14 Şimşon uyurken Delila onun başındaki yedi örgüyü dokuma tezgahındaki kumaşla birlikte dokuyup kazıkla burdu. Sonra, ‹‹Şimşon, Filistliler geldi!›› dedi. Şimşon uykusundan uyandı, saçını tezgah kazığından ve kumaştan çekip kurtardı. tezgahındaki kumaşla birlikte dokuyup kazıkla burarsan sıradan bir adam gibi güçsüz olurum› dedi. Şimşon uyurken Delila onun başındaki yedi örgüyü dokuma tezgahındaki kumaşla birlikte dokuyup kazıkla burdu››, Masoretik metin ‹‹Şimşon kadına, ‹Başımdaki yedi örgüyü dokuma tezgahındaki kumaşla birlikte dokursan› dedi. Kadın dokuyup kazıkla burdu››.

15 Delila, ‹‹Bana güvenmiyorsan nasıl olur da, ‹Seni seviyorum› diyorsun?›› dedi, ‹‹Üç kezdir beni kandırıyorsun, üstün gücünün nereden geldiğini söylemiyorsun.››

16 Bu sözlerle Şimşonu sıkıştırıp günlerce başını ağrıttı. Sonunda Şimşon dayanamayıp

17 yüreğini kadına tümüyle açtı. ‹‹Başıma hiç ustura değmedi›› dedi, ‹‹Çünkü ben ana rahmindeyken Tanrıya adanmışım. Tıraş olursam gücümü yitiririm. Sıradan bir adam gibi güçsüz olurum.››

18 Delila Şimşonun gerçeği söylediğini anlayınca haber gönderip Filist beylerini çağırttı. ‹‹Bir kez daha gelin›› dedi, ‹‹Şimşon bana gerçeği söyledi.›› Kadının yanına gelen Filist beyleri gümüşü de birlikte getirdiler.

19 Delila Şimşonu dizleri üzerinde uyuttuktan sonra adamlardan birini çağırtıp başındaki yedi örgüyü kestirdi. Sonra alay ederek onu dürtüklemeye başladı. Çünkü Şimşon gücünü yitirmişti.

20 Delila, ‹‹Şimşon, Filistliler geldi!›› dedi. Şimşon uyandı ve, ‹‹Her zamanki gibi kalkıp silkinirim›› diye düşündü. RABbin kendisinden ayrıldığını bilmiyordu.

21 Filistliler onu yakalayıp gözlerini oydular. Gazzeye götürüp tunç zincirlerle bağladılar, cezaevinde değirmen taşına koştular.

22 Bu arada Şimşonun kesilen saçları uzamaya başladı.

23 Filist beyleri ilahları Dagonun onuruna çok sayıda kurban kesip eğlenmek için toplandılar. ‹‹İlahımız, düşmanımız Şimşonu elimize teslim etti›› dediler.

24 Halk Şimşonu görünce kendi ilahlarını övmeye başladı. ‹‹İlahımız ülkemizi yakıp yıkan,
Birçoğumuzu öldüren
Düşmanımızı elimize teslim etti››

25 İyice coşunca, ‹‹Şimşonu getirin, bizi eğlendirsin›› dediler. Şimşonu cezaevinden getirip oynatmaya başladılar, sonra sütunların arasında durdurdular.

26 Şimşon, elinden tutan gence, ‹‹Beni tapınağın damını taşıyan sütunların yanına götür de onlara yaslanayım›› dedi.

27 Tapınak erkeklerle, kadınlarla doluydu. Bütün Filist beyleri de oradaydı. Üç bin kadar kadın erkek Şimşonun oynayışını damdan seyrediyordu.

28 Şimşon RABbe yakarmaya başladı: ‹‹Ey Egemen RAB, lütfen beni anımsa. Ey Tanrı, bir kez daha beni güçlendir; Filistlilerden bir vuruşta iki gözümün öcünü alayım.››

29 Sonra tapınağın damını taşıyan iki ana sütunun ortasında durup sağ eliyle birini, sol eliyle ötekini kavradı.

30 ‹‹Filistlilerle birlikte öleyim›› diyerek bütün gücüyle sütunlara yüklendi. Tapınak Filist beylerinin ve bütün içindekilerin üzerine çöktü. Böylece Şimşon ölürken, yaşamı boyunca öldürdüğünden daha çok insan öldürdü.

31 Şimşon'un kardeşleriyle babası Manoah'ın bütün ailesi onun ölüsünü almaya geldiler. Şimşon'u götürüp babasının Sora ile Eştaol arasındaki mezarına gömdüler. Şimşon İsrail'i yirmi yıl süreyle yönetmişti.

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]).
