SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:11 Y cuando ellos le vieron, tomaron treinta compañeros que estuviesen con él;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Judges 14:11 Verse 11. They brought thirty companions] These are called in Scripture children of the bride-chamber, and friends of the bridegroom. See the whole of this subject particularly illustrated in the observations at the end of John iii. 25.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. And it came to pass; when they saw him , etc.] That is, the Philistines, the citizens of Timnath, when they saw that he was come to consummate his marriage: that they brought thirty companions to be with him ; to be the bridegroom’s men, or children of the bridechamber, as they are called, ( Matthew 9:15) or friends of the bridegroom, ( John 3:29) to keep him company during the nuptial feast: this they did according to custom, and in honour and respect unto him; though some think, and so Josephus f291 , that they were brought to be guards upon him, observing that he was a man of great might, strength, and courage, so that they were afraid of him, lest he should have some design upon them; but it is not certain that there was anything very visible or terrible in him, more than in another man, that showed him to be of extraordinary courage and strength, since it was but at times the Spirit of the Lord came upon him, and as yet he had done nothing to their knowledge which showed him to be such; had they indeed known of his encounter with the lion, they might have had such thoughts of him, but this they knew nothing of.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10-20 - Samson's riddle literally meant no more than that he had got honey, for food and for pleasure, from the lion, which in its strength and fur was ready to devour him. But the victory of Christ over Satan, by mean of his humiliation, agonies, and death, and the exaltation tha followed to him, with the glory thence to the Father, and spiritual advantages to his people, seem directly alluded to. And even death that devouring monster, being robbed of his sting, and stripped of his horror, forwards the soul to the realms of bliss. In these and othe senses, out of the eater comes forth meat, and out of the strong sweetness. Samson's companions obliged his wife to get the explanatio from him. A worldly wife, or a worldly friend, is to a godly man as a enemy in the camp, who will watch every opportunity to betray him. N union can be comfortable or lasting, where secrets cannot be intrusted without danger of being divulged. Satan, in his temptations, could no do us the mischief he does, if he did not plough with the heifer of ou corrupt nature. His chief advantage against us arises from his correspondence with our deceitful hearts and inbred lusts. This prove an occasion of weaning Samson from his new relations. It were well for us, if the unkindness we meet with from the world, and ou disappointments in it, obliged us by faith and prayer to return to ou heavenly Father's house, and to rest there. See how little confidenc is to be put in man. Whatever pretence of friendship may be made, real Philistine will soon be weary of a true Israelite __________________________________________________________________
