    16:1 Then went 3212 8799 Samson 8123 to Gaza 5804, and saw 7200 8799 there an harlot 802 2181 8802, and went in 935 8799 unto her.(harlot: Heb. a woman an harlot)

    16:2 [And it was told] the Gazites 5841, saying 559 8800, Samson 8123 is come 935 8804 hither. And they compassed [him] in 5437 8799, and laid wait 693 8799 for him all night 3915 in the gate 8179 of the city 5892, and were quiet 2790 8691 all the night 3915, saying 559 8800, In the morning 1242, when it is day 216, we shall kill 2026 8804 him.(quiet: Heb. silent)

    16:3 And Samson 8123 lay 7901 8799 till midnight 2677 3915, and arose 6965 8799 at midnight 2677 3915, and took 270 8799 the doors 1817 of the gate 8179 of the city 5892, and the two 8147 posts 4201, and went away 5265 8799 with them, bar 1280 and all, and put 7760 8799 [them] upon his shoulders 3802, and carried them up 5927 8686 to the top 7218 of an hill 2022 that [is] before 6440 Hebron 2275.(bar…: Heb. with the bar)

    16:4 And it came to pass afterward 310, that he loved 157 8799 a woman 802 in the valley 5158 of Sorek 7796, whose name 8034 [was] Delilah 1807.(in…: or, by the brook)

    16:5 And the lords 5633 of the Philistines 6430 came up 5927 8799 unto her, and said 559 8799 unto her, Entice 6601 8761 him, and see 7200 8798 wherein his great 1419 strength 3581 [lieth], and by what [means] we may prevail 3201 8799 against him, that we may bind 631 8804 him to afflict 6031 8763 him: and we will give 5414 8799 thee every one 376 of us eleven hundred 505 3967 [pieces] of silver 3701.(afflict: or, humble)

    16:6 And Delilah 1807 said 559 8799 to Samson 8123, Tell 5046 8685 me, I pray thee, wherein thy great 1419 strength 3581 [lieth], and wherewith thou mightest be bound 631 8735 to afflict 6031 8763 thee.

    16:7 And Samson 8123 said 559 8799 unto her, If they bind 631 8799 me with seven 7651 green 3892 withs 3499 that were never dried 2717 8795, then shall I be weak 2470 8804, and be as another 259 man 120.(green…: or, new cords: Heb. moist)(another: Heb. one)

    16:8 Then the lords 5633 of the Philistines 6430 brought up 5927 8686 to her seven 7651 green 3892 withs 3499 which had not been dried 2717 8795, and she bound 631 8799 him with them.(green…: or, new cords: Heb. moist)

    16:9 Now [there were] men lying in wait 693 8802, abiding 3427 8802 with her in the chamber 2315. And she said 559 8799 unto him, The Philistines 6430 [be] upon thee, Samson 8123. And he brake 5423 8762 the withs 3499, as a thread 6616 of tow 5296 is broken 5423 8735 when it toucheth 7306 8687 the fire 784. So his strength 3581 was not known 3045 8738.(toucheth: Heb. smelleth)

    16:10 And Delilah 1807 said 559 8799 unto Samson 8123, Behold, thou hast mocked 2048 8765 me, and told 1696 8762 me lies 3577: now tell 5046 8685 me, I pray thee, wherewith thou mightest be bound 631 8735.

    16:11 And he said 559 8799 unto her, If they bind 631 8799 me fast 631 8800 with new 2319 ropes 5688 that never were occupied 4399 6213 8738, then shall I be weak 2470 8804, and be as another 259 man 120.(that never…: Heb. wherewith work hath not been done)

    16:12 Delilah 1807 therefore took 3947 8799 new 2319 ropes 5688, and bound 631 8799 him therewith, and said 559 8799 unto him, The Philistines 6430 [be] upon thee, Samson 8123. And [there were] liers in wait 693 8802 abiding 3427 8802 in the chamber 2315. And he brake 5423 8762 them from off his arms 2220 like a thread 2339.

    16:13 And Delilah 1807 said 559 8799 unto Samson 8123, Hitherto 2008 thou hast mocked 2048 8765 me, and told 1696 8762 me lies 3577: tell 5046 8685 me wherewith thou mightest be bound 631 8735. And he said 559 8799 unto her, If thou weavest 707 8799 the seven 7651 locks 4253 of my head 7218 with the web 4545.

    16:14 And she fastened 8628 8799 [it] with the pin 3489, and said 559 8799 unto him, The Philistines 6430 [be] upon thee, Samson 8123. And he awaked 3364 8799 out of his sleep 8142, and went away 5265 8799 with the pin 3489 of the beam 708, and with the web 4545.

    16:15 And she said 559 8799 unto him, How 349 canst thou say 559 8799, I love 157 8804 thee, when thine heart 3820 [is] not with me? thou hast mocked 2048 8765 me these three 7969 times 6471, and hast not told 5046 8689 me wherein thy great 1419 strength 3581 [lieth].

    16:16 And it came to pass, when she pressed 6693 8689 him daily 3117 with her words 1697, and urged 509 8762 him, [so] that his soul 5315 was vexed 7114 8799 unto death 4191 8800;(vexed: Heb. shortened)

    16:17 That he told 5046 8686 her all his heart 3820, and said 559 8799 unto her, There hath not come 5927 8804 a razor 4177 upon mine head 7218; for I [have been] a Nazarite 5139 unto God 430 from my mother's 517 womb 990: if I be shaven 1548 8795, then my strength 3581 will go 5493 8804 from me, and I shall become weak 2470 8804, and be like any [other] man 120.

    16:18 And when Delilah 1807 saw 7200 8799 that he had told 5046 8689 her all his heart 3820, she sent 7971 8799 and called 7121 8799 for the lords 5633 of the Philistines 6430, saying 559 8800, Come up 5927 8798 this once 6471, for he hath shewed 5046 8689 me all his heart 3820. Then the lords 5633 of the Philistines 6430 came up 5927 8804 unto her, and brought 5927 8686 money 3701 in their hand 3027.

    16:19 And she made him sleep 3462 8762 upon her knees 1290; and she called 7121 8799 for a man 376, and she caused him to shave off 1548 8762 the seven 7651 locks 4253 of his head 7218; and she began 2490 8686 to afflict 6031 8763 him, and his strength 3581 went 5493 8799 from him.

    16:20 And she said 559 8799, The Philistines 6430 [be] upon thee, Samson 8123. And he awoke 3364 8799 out of his sleep 8142, and said 559 8799, I will go out 3318 8799 as at other times before 6471, and shake 5287 8735 myself. And he wist 3045 8804 not that the LORD 3068 was departed 5493 8804 from him.

    16:21 But the Philistines 6430 took 270 8799 him, and put out 5365 8762 his eyes 5869, and brought him down 3381 8686 to Gaza 5804, and bound 631 8799 him with fetters of brass 5178; and he did grind 2912 8802 in the prison 631 8803 house 1004.(put out: Heb. bored out)

    16:22 Howbeit the hair 8181 of his head 7218 began 2490 8686 to grow again 6779 8763 after 834 he was shaven 1548 8795.(after…: or, as when he was shaven)

    16:23 Then the lords 5633 of the Philistines 6430 gathered them together 622 8738 for to offer 2076 8800 a great 1419 sacrifice 2077 unto Dagon 1712 their god 430, and to rejoice 8057: for they said 559 8799, Our god 430 hath delivered 5414 8804 Samson 8123 our enemy 341 8802 into our hand 3027.

    16:24 And when the people 5971 saw 7200 8799 him, they praised 1984 8762 their god 430: for they said 559 8804, Our god 430 hath delivered 5414 8804 into our hands 3027 our enemy 341 8802, and the destroyer 2717 8688 of our country 776, which slew 2491 many 7235 8689 of us.(which…: Heb. and who multiplied our slain)

    16:25 And it came to pass, when their hearts 3820 were merry 2896, that they said 559 8799, Call 7121 8798 for Samson 8123, that he may make us sport 7832 8762. And they called 7121 8799 for Samson 8123 out of the prison 631 8803 house 1004; and he made them 6440 sport 6711 8762: and they set 5975 8686 him between the pillars 5982.(them: Heb. before them)

    16:26 And Samson 8123 said 559 8799 unto the lad 5288 that held 2388 8688 him by the hand 3027, Suffer 3240 8685 me that I may feel 4184 8685 8675 3237 8685 the pillars 5982 whereupon the house 1004 standeth 3559 8737, that I may lean 8172 8735 upon them.

    16:27 Now the house 1004 was full 4390 8804 of men 582 and women 802; and all the lords 5633 of the Philistines 6430 [were] there; and [there were] upon the roof 1406 about three 7969 thousand 505 men 376 and women 802, that beheld 7200 8802 while Samson 8123 made sport 7832 8800.

    16:28 And Samson 8123 called 7121 8799 unto the LORD 3068, and said 559 8799, O Lord 136 GOD 3069, remember 2142 8798 me, I pray thee, and strengthen 2388 8761 me, I pray thee, only this once 6471, O God 430, that I may be at once 259 avenged 5358 8735 5359 of the Philistines 6430 for my two 8147 eyes 5869.

    16:29 And Samson 8123 took hold 3943 8799 of the two 8147 middle 8432 pillars 5982 upon which the house 1004 stood 3559 8737, and on which it was borne up 5564 8735, of the one 259 with his right hand 3225, and of the other 259 with his left 8040.(on which…: or, he leaned on them)

    16:30 And Samson 8123 said 559 8799, Let me die 4191 8799 5315 with the Philistines 6430. And he bowed 5186 8799 himself with [all his] might 3581; and the house 1004 fell 5307 8799 upon the lords 5633, and upon all the people 5971 that [were] therein. So the dead 4191 8801 which he slew 4191 8689 at his death 4194 were more 7227 than [they] which he slew 4191 8689 in his life 2416.(me: Heb. my soul)

    16:31 Then his brethren 251 and all the house 1004 of his father 1 came down 3381 8799, and took 5375 8799 him, and brought [him] up 5927 8799, and buried 6912 8799 him between Zorah 6881 and Eshtaol 847 in the buryingplace 6913 of Manoah 4495 his father 1. And he judged 8199 8804 Israel 3478 twenty 6242 years 8141.
