SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:11 Y él le dijo: Si me ataren fuertemente con cuerdas nuevas, con las cuales ninguna cosa se haya hecho, yo me debilitaré, y seré como cualquiera de los demás hombres.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Judges 16:11 Verse 11. If they bind me fast with new ropes] Samson wishes to keep up the opinion which the Philistines held; viz., that his mighty strength was the effect of some charm; and therefore he says, Seven green withs which had not been dried; new ropes that were never occupied; weave the seven locks of my hair with the web, &c.; the green withs, the new ropes, and the number seven, are such matters as would naturally be expected in a charm or spell.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. And he said unto her , etc.] Abarbinel presents Samson replying to her, that he had told her the truth at first, only forgot one circumstance, that the “cords”, for so he takes the word for “withs” to signify, should be “new”, such as were never used, as follows: if they bind me fast with new ropes, that never were occupied ; the word signifies thick ropes, which, according to Kimchi and Ben Melech, were trebled, or made of three cords twisted together, and those such as were just made, and had never been put to any use, and so strong and firm: then shall I be weak, and be as another man ; (see Judges 16:7).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 4-17 - Samson had been more than once brought into mischief and danger by the love of women, yet he would not take warning, but is again taken in the same snare, and this third time is fatal. Licentiousness is one of the things that take away the heart. This is a deep pit into which man have fallen; but from which few have escaped, and those by a miracle of mercy, with the loss of reputation and usefulness, of almost all except their souls. The anguish of the suffering is ten thousand time greater than all the pleasures of the sin.
