SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:28 Entonces clamó Sansón al SEÑOR, y dijo: Señor DIOS, acuérdate ahora de mí, y esfuérzame ahora solamente esta vez, oh Dios, para que de una vez tome venganza de los filisteos, por mis dos ojos.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Judges 16:28 Verse 28. Samson called unto the Lord] It was in consequence of his faith in God that he should be strengthened to overthrow his enemies and the enemies of his country, that he is mentioned, Heb. xi. 32, among those who were remarkable for their faith.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 28. And Samson called unto the Lord , etc.] In an ejaculatory manner, by mental prayer; though he might possibly express it aloud, without being heard and observed by the people, amidst their noise and mirth; and if it was heard, it might only furnish out more ridicule and contempt; and be it as it may, the prayer must have been preserved by the Lord himself, and given by inspiration to the writer of this book; since there were none that heard it that lived to relate it to others, no, not Samson himself: and said, O Lord God, remember me, I pray thee ; the office that I bear as judge of Israel, the reproaches cast upon me, and which fall upon thy people, cause, and interest; remember thy lovingkindness, formerly expressed to me, the gracious promises made unto me, and the help and assistance I have had from thee: and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God ; and it was a prayer of faith, as appears by its being heard, accepted, and answered; and shows that his strength did not come with his hair, but was owing to the immediate communication of it from the Lord: that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes ; once for all, and no more; take his last and final vengeance on them; or one vengeance for his two eyes, or vengeance for one of his two eyes; either senses will bear. This was said not from a private spirit of revenge for personal injuries; but as a civil magistrate, a judge of Israel, whose office it was to be a revenger, to execute wrath; and though he mentions only his own eyes, yet he suffered the loss of them, and every other indignity and injury, as a public person, the common enemy of the Philistines, and destroyer of their country, and protector of Israel; and in this character he now acted.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 25-31 - Nothing fills up the sins of any person or people faster than mockin and misusing the servants of God, even thought it is by their own foll that they are brought low. God put it into Samson's heart, as a publi person, thus to avenge on them God's quarrel, Israel's, and his own That strength which he had lost by sin, he recovers by prayer. That is was not from passion or personal revenge, but from holy zeal for the glory of God and Israel, appears from God's accepting and answering the prayer. The house was pulled down, not by the natural strength of Samson, but by the almighty power of God. In his case it was right he should avenge the cause of God and Israel. Nor is he to be accused of self-murder. He sought not his own death, but Israel's deliverance, an the destruction of their enemies. Thus Samson died in bonds, and amon the Philistines, as an awful rebuke for his sins; but he die repentant. The effects of his death typified those of the death of Christ, who, of his own will, laid down his life among transgressors and thus overturned the foundation of Satan's kingdom, and provided for the deliverance of his people. Great as was the sin of Samson, an justly as he deserved the judgments he brought upon himself, he foun mercy of the Lord at last; and every penitent shall obtain mercy, wh flees for refuge to that Saviour whose blood cleanses from all sin. But here is nothing to encourage any to indulge sin, from a hope they shal at last repent and be saved __________________________________________________________________
