    King James Bible - Judges 14:3

    Then his father and his mother said unto him, Is there never a woman among the daughters of thy brethren, or among all my people, that thou goest to take a wife of the uncircumcised Philistines? And Samson said unto his father, Get her for me; for she pleaseth me well.

    World English Bible

    Then his father and his mother said to him, "Is there never a woman among the daughters of your brothers, or among all my people, that you go to take a wife of the uncircumcised Philistines?" Samson said to his father, "Get her for me; for she pleases me well."

    Douay-Rheims - Judges 14:3

    And his father and mother said to him: Is there no woman among the daughters of thy brethren, or among all my people, that thou wilt take a wife of the Philistines, who are uncircumcised? And Samson said to his father: Take this woman for me, for she hath pleased my
    eyes.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Then his father and his mother said to him, Is there not a woman among the daughters of thy brethren, or among all my people, that thou goest to take a wife of the uncircumcised Philistines? And Samson said to his father, Get her for me; for she pleaseth me well.

    Ge 13:8; 21:3,4,27

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:3

    Y su padre y su madre le dijeron: ¿No hay mujer entre las hijas de tus hermanos, ni en todo mi pueblo, para que vayas tú a tomar mujer de los filisteos incircuncisos? Y Sansón respondió a su padre: Tómamela por mujer , porque ésta agradó a mis ojos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Judges 14:3

    Verse 3. Is there never a
    woman] To marry with any that did not belong to the Israelitish stock, was contrary to the law, Exodus xxxiv. 16; Deut. vii. 3. But this marriage of Samson was said to be of the Lord, ver. 4; that is, God permitted it, (for in no other sense can we understand the phrase,) that it might be a means of bringing about the deliverance of Israel.

    For she pleaseth me well.] yny[b hry ayh yk ki hi yisherah beeynai, for she is right in my eyes. This is what is supposed to be a sufficient reason to justify either man or woman in their random choice of wife or husband; the maxim is the same with that of the poet: - "Thou hast no fault, or I no fault can spy; Thou art all beauty or all blindness I." When the will has sufficient power, its determinations are its own rule of right. That will should be pure and well directed that says, It shall be so, because I WILL it should be so. A reason of this kind is similar to that which I have seen in a motto on the brass ordnance of Lewis XIV., ULTIMA RATIO REGUM, the sum of regal logic; i.e., "My will, backed by these instruments of destruction, shall be the rule of right and wrong." The rules and principles of this logic are now suspected; and it is not likely to be generally received again without violent demonstration.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. Then his father and his mother said unto him , etc.] What he might expect, and doubtless did expect: is there never a woman among the daughters of thy brethren, or among all my people, that thou goest to take a wife of the uncircumcised Philistines ? none in their own family, nor in the tribe of Dan, nor among the whole nation of Israel, but must go among the uncircumcised Philistines; for though they were not of the seven nations of the Canaanites, with whom marriage was forbidden, yet they not only dwelt where they did, and where the Israelites should, but were idolaters and impure persons, and therefore affinity should not be contracted with them, as being of a dangerous consequence, which might entice to idolatry. Ben Gersom observes, that their Rabbins say he made her a proselyte first, though he did not acquaint his parents with it, and so Abarbinel; but this seems not likely, for, had this been the case, he would have had an easy and ready reply to this objection of theirs: and Samson said unto his father, get her for me, for she pleaseth me well ; or “is right in mine eyes” f278 ; not only his eyes were taken with her beauty or external form, but it was right in his sight, in his judgment, to marry her; he having an impulse upon his mind from the Spirit of God unto it, though he did not let his parents know of it, but left them to conclude it sprung from a strong affection to her person. Abarbinel observes, that he only addressed his father, and not his mother, she being most vehemently against the match, and expressing more uneasiness at it than his father did; but it is most likely that he addressed his father particularly, because he was the proper person to negotiate this affair for him.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-4 - As
    far as Samson's marriage was a common case, it was weak and foolis of him to set his affections upon a daughter of the Philistines. Shal one, not only an Israelite, but a Nazarite, devoted to the Lord, cove to become one with a worshipper of Dagon? It does not appear that he had any reason to think her wise or virtuous, or any way likely to be help meet for him; but he saw something in her agreeable to his fancy He that, in the choice of a wife, is only guided by his eye, an governed by his fancy, must afterwards thank himself if he find Philistine in his arms. Yet it was well done not to proceed till Samso had made his parents acquainted with the matter. Children ought not to marry, nor to move towards it, without the advice and consent of their parents. Samson's parents did well to dissuade him from yoking himsel unequally with unbelievers. It seems that it pleased God to leav Samson to follow his own inclinations, intending to bring out good from his conduct; and his parents consented, because he was bent upon it However, his example is not recorded for us to do likewise.
