Judges 16

Verse 20

wist not

Contra, Exodus 34:29.

Verse 31

judged

The character and work of Samson are alike enigmatical. Announced by an angel Judges 13:1-21. He was a Nazarite ; Numbers 6:1-27; Judges 13:5 who constantly defiled his Nazarite separation through fleshly appetites. Called of God to judge Israel, and endued wonderfully with the Spirit, he wrought no abiding work for Israel, and perished in captivity to his enemies the Philistines. What was real in the man was his mighty faith in Jehovah in a time of doubt and apostasy, and this faith God honoured Hebrews 11:32.
