And <G2532> Samson went <G4198> into <G1519> Gaza, and <G2532> saw <G1492> there <G1563> a woman <G1135> harlot <G4204>, and <G2532> he entered <G1525> to <G4314> her <G1473>.
2
And <G2532> it was reported <G518> to the <G3588> Gazites, saying <G3004>, Samson comes <G2240> here <G5602>. And <G2532> they encircled <G2633.3>, and <G2532> laid in wait <G1748> for <G1909> him <G1473> the entire <G3650> the <G3588> night <G3571> at <G1909> the <G3588> gate <G4439> of the <G3588> city <G4172>. And <G2532> they were silent <G2973.1> entire <G3650> the <G3588> night <G3571>, saying <G3004>, until <G2193> light shows through <G1307.1> the <G3588> at dawn <G3722> We should wait <G3306>, and <G2532> we should kill <G615> him <G1473>.
3
And <G2532> Samson went to bed <G2837> until <G2193> midnight <G3317>. And <G2532> he rose up <G450> at <G1722> half <G2255> the <G3588> night <G3571>, and <G2532> he took hold of <G1949> the <G3588> doors <G2374> of the <G3588> gate <G4439> of the <G3588> city <G4172>, and <G2532> the <G3588> two <G1417> doorposts <G4712.4>, and <G2532> carried <G306.2> them <G1473> with <G4862> the <G3588> bar <G3449.2>, and <G2532> put [them <G5087> upon <G1909> his shoulders <G5606><G1473>, and <G2532> bore <G399> them <G1473> upon <G1909> the <G3588> top <G2884.2> of the <G3588> raised-place (mountain) '<G3735> which <G3739> is <G1510.2.3> at <G1909> face <G4383> of Hebron.
4
And <G2532> it came to pass <G1096> after <G3326> this <G3778>, that <G2532> he loved <G25> a woman <G1135> by <G2089> the <G3588> rushing stream <G5493> Sorek, and <G2532> name <G3686> of her <G1473> [was] Delilah.
5
And <G2532> went up <G305> to <G4314> her <G1473> the <G3588> satraps <G4568.2> of the <G3588> Philistines <G246>, and <G2532> said <G2036> to her <G1473>, Beguile <G538> him <G1473>, and <G2532> see <G1492> by <G1722> what [means <G5100> the <G3588> strength <G2479> of him '<G1473> is <G1510.2.3> the <G3588> great <G3173>, and <G2532> by <G1722> what [means <G5100> we will be able to prevail <G1410> against <G4314> him <G1473>, and <G2532> tie <G1210> him <G1473> so as <G5620> to humble <G5013> him <G1473>. And <G2532> we <G1473> will give <G1325> to you <G1473> by man <G435> a thousand <G5507> and <G2532> a hundred <G1540> [pieces] of silver <G694>.
6
And <G2532> Delilah said <G2036> to <G4314> Samson, Explain <G518> indeed <G1211> to me <G1473> by <G1722> what [means <G5100> the <G3588> strength [is <G2479> your <G1473> the <G3588> great <G3173>! and <G2532> by <G1722> what [means <G5100> you will be tied <G1210> [so as the <G3588> to humble <G5013> you <G1473>?
7
And <G2532> said <G2036> to <G4314> her <G1473> Samson], If <G1437> they should tie <G1210> me <G1473> with <G1722> seven <G2033> strings of a bow <G3505.3> wet <G5200> that are not <G3361> ruined <G1311>, then <G2532> I will be weakened <G770>, and <G2532> I will be <G1510.8.1> as <G5613> one <G1520> of the <G3588> men <G444>.
8
And <G2532> brought <G399> to her <G1473> the <G3588> satraps <G4568.2> of the <G3588> Philistines <G246> seven <G2033> strings of a bow <G3505.3> wet <G5200> not <G3361> ruined <G1311>. And <G2532> she tied <G1210> him <G1473> with <G1722> them <G1473>.
9
And <G2532> the <G3588> ambush <G1749> sat down <G2521> for him <G1473> in <G1722> the <G3588> storeroom <G5009>. And <G2532> she said <G2036> to <G4314> him <G1473>, Philistines <G246> are upon <G1909> you <G1473>, Samson. And <G2532> he tore up <G1284> the <G3588> strings of the bow <G3505.3> in which <G3739> manner one <G5158> pulls apart <G1288> yarn <G2832.1> of hemp <G4769.2> in <G1722> the <G3588> its smelling <G3750.1><G1473> of fire <G4442>, and <G2532> was not <G3756> made known <G1097> the <G3588> strength <G2479> of him <G1473>.
10
And <G2532> Delilah said <G2036> to <G4314> Samson, look <G2400>, you misled <G3884> me <G1473>, and <G2532> you spoke <G2980> to <G4314> me <G1473> [by] lying <G5571>. Now <G3568> then <G3767> report <G312> to me <G1473>! <G1722> how <G5100> you will be tied <G1210>.
11
And <G2532> he said <G2036> to <G4314> her <G1473>, If <G1437> by binding <G1195>, they should tie <G1210> me <G1473> by <G1722> ropes <G2572.1> new <G2537> which <G3739> were not [used <G3756><G1096> in <G1722><G1473> work <G2041>, then <G2532> I will be weak <G770>, and <G2532> I will be <G1510.8.1> as <G5613> one <G1520> of the <G3588> men <G444>.
12
And <G2532> Delilah took <G2983> ropes <G2572.1> new <G2537>, and <G2532> tied <G1210> him <G1473> with <G1722> them <G1473>. And <G2532> she said <G2036> to <G4314> him <G1473>, the <G3588> Philistines <G246> are upon <G1909> you <G1473>, Samson. And <G2532> the <G3588> ambush <G1749> sat <G2521> in <G1722> the <G3588> storeroom <G5009>. And <G2532> he pulled <G1288> them <G1473> from <G575> the <G3588> his arms <G1023><G1473> as <G5616> thread <G4471.1>.
13
And <G2532> Delilah said <G2036> to <G4314> Samson, Until <G2193> now <G3568> you misled <G3884> me <G1473>, and <G2532> spoke <G2980> to <G4314> me <G1473> lying <G5571>. Announce <G312> indeed <G1211> to me <G1473>! by <G1722> what [means <G5100> you will be tied <G1210>. And <G2532> he said <G2036> to <G4314> her <G1473>, If <G1437> you should weave <G5306.1> the <G3588> seven <G2033> strands [of hair <G4577> of the <G3588> my head <G2776><G1473> with <G3326> the <G3588> warp <G1287.2>, and <G2532> hammer <G1469.2> with <G1722> the <G3588> peg <G3956.1> into <G1519> the <G3588> wall <G5109>, then <G2532> I will be <G1510.8.1> weak <G772> as <G5613> one <G1520> of the <G3588> men <G444>.
14
And <G2532> it came to pass <G1096> in <G1722> the <G3588> his going to sleep <G2837><G1473>, that <G2532> Delilah took <G2983> the <G3588> seven <G2033> strands <G4577> of the <G3588> his head <G2776><G1473>, and <G2532> weaved [them <G5306.1> with <G1722> the <G3588> warp <G1287.2>, and <G2532> pinned [them <G4078> to the <G3588> peg <G3956.1> into <G1519> the <G3588> wall <G5109>. And <G2532> she said <G2036> to <G4314> him <G1473>, Philistines <G246> [are] upon <G1909> you <G1473>, Samson. And <G2532> he was awakened <G1825> from <G1537> the <G3588> his sleep <G5258><G1473>, and <G2532> he pulled out <G1610.6> the <G3588> pegs <G3956.1> in <G1722> the <G3588> woven work <G5307.1> from out of <G1537> the <G3588> wall <G5109>, and <G2532> the <G3588> warp <G1287.2>; for <G2532> he did not know <G3756><G1097> the <G3588> strength <G2479> of him <G1473>.
15
And <G2532> said <G2036> to <G4314> him <G1473> Delilah], How <G4459> do you say <G2046>, I love <G25> you <G1473>, and <G2532> the <G3588> your heart <G2588><G1473> not <G3756> is <G1510.2.3> with <G3326> me <G1473>? This <G3778> third [time] <G5154> you misled <G3884> me <G1473>, and <G2532> did not <G3756> report <G518> to me <G1473> by <G1722> what [means <G5100> the <G3588> strength [is <G2479> your <G1473> the <G3588> great <G3173>.
16
And <G2532> it came to pass <G1096> when <G3753> she worked <G2716> him <G1473> by <G1722> the <G3588> her words <G3056><G1473> whole <G3650> the <G3588> night <G3571>, and <G2532> troubled <G3926> him <G1473>, so that <G2532> he was faint-hearted <G3641.3> unto <G2193><G1519> death <G2288>.
17
And <G2532> he reported <G518> to her <G1473> all <G3956> the [things] <G3588> from <G575> his heart <G2588><G1473>. And <G2532> said <G2036> to her <G1473>, A razor <G3587.2> will not ascend <G3756><G305> upon <G1909> the <G3588> my head <G2776><G1473>, for <G3754> a Nazarite of God '<G2316> I <G1473> am <G1510.2.1> from <G1537> belly <G2836> of my mother <G3384><G1473>; and <G2532> if <G1437> I should be shaven <G3587>, will leave <G868> from <G575> me <G1473> the <G3588> my strength <G2479><G1473>, and <G2532> I will be weakened <G770>, and <G2532> I will be <G1510.8.1> as <G2596> all <G3956> the <G3588> men <G444>.
18
And <G2532> Delilah knew <G1492> that <G3754> he reported <G518> to her <G1473> all <G3956> the <G3588> his heart <G2588><G1473>. And <G2532> she sent <G649> and <G2532> called <G2564> the <G3588> satraps <G4568.2> of the <G3588> Philistines <G246>, saying <G3004>, go up <G305> the <G3588> this once <G530><G3778>! for <G3754> he reported <G518> to me <G1473> all <G3956> the <G3588> his heart <G2588><G1473>. And <G2532> ascended up <G305> to <G4314> her <G1473> all <G3956> the <G3588> satraps <G4568.2> of the <G3588> Philistines <G246>, and <G2532> they brought <G399> the <G3588> silver <G694> into <G1722> the <G3588> her hands <G5495><G1473>.
19
And <G2532> she rested <G2838.1> him <G1473> between <G303.1> the <G3588> her knees <G1119><G1473>. And <G2532> she called <G2564> the <G3588> barber <G2891.2>, and <G2532> he shaved <G3587> the <G3588> seven <G2033> curls <G1007.1> of the <G3588> his head <G2776><G1473>; and <G2532> it began <G756> to humble <G5013> him <G1473>, and <G2532> left <G868> the <G3588> strength <G2479> of him <G1473> from <G575> him <G1473>.
20
And <G2532> Delilah said <G2036>, Philistines <G246> [are] upon <G1909> you <G1473>, Samson. And <G2532> he was awakened <G1825> from out of <G1537> the <G3588> his sleep <G5258><G1473>. And <G2532> he said <G2036>, I will go forth <G1831>, and <G2532> I will do <G4160> as <G2531> continually [before <G104>, and <G2532> I will brush myself off <G660>. And <G2532> he <G1473> did not <G3756> know <G1097> that <G3754> the <G3588> Boss '<G2962> left <G868> from <G575> him <G1473>.
21
And <G2532> took hold of <G1949> him <G1473> the <G3588> Philistines <G246>, and <G2532> gouged out <G1846> the <G3588> his eyes <G3788><G1473>, and <G2532> carried <G2702> him <G1473> unto <G1519> Gaza. And <G2532> they bound <G1210> him <G1473> with <G1722> shackles <G3976> of brass <G5470>, and <G2532> he was <G1510.7.3> grinding <G229> in <G1722> house <G3624> of the <G3588> prison <G5438>.
22
And <G2532> began <G756> the <G3588> hair <G2359> of the <G3588> his head <G2776><G1473> to grow <G985>, as <G2531> he was shaven <G3587>.
23
And <G2532> the <G3588> rulers <G758> of the <G3588> Philistines <G246> came together <G4863> the <G3588> to sacrifice <G2380> sacrifice <G2378> a great <G3173> [to the <G3588> Dagon the <G3588>ir god <G2316><G1473>, and <G2532> the <G3588> to be merry <G2165>. And <G2532> they said <G2036>, delivered <G3860> the <G3588> Our god <G2316><G1473> into <G1722> our hand <G5495><G1473> Samson the <G3588> our enemy <G2190><G1473>.
24
And <G2532> saw <G1492> him <G1473> the <G3588> people <G2992>, and <G2532> they praised <G134> the <G3588> God '<G2316> of them <G1473>, for <G3754> they said <G2036>, delivered <G3860> the <G3588> Our god <G2316><G1473> the <G3588> our enemy <G2190><G1473> into <G1722> our hands <G5495><G1473>, the [one] <G3588> making quite desolate <G1830.2> the <G3588> our land '<G1093><G1473>, who <G3748> multiplied <G4129> the <G3588> our slain <G5134.1><G1473>.
25
And <G2532> it came to pass <G1096> when <G3753> was [feeling] good <G18.2> the <G3588>ir heart <G2588><G1473>, that <G2532> they said <G2036>, Call <G2564> the <G3588> Samson from out of <G1537> house <G3624> of prison <G5438>, and <G2532> let him play <G3815> before <G1799> us <G1473>! And <G2532> they called <G2564> the <G3588> Samson from out of <G1537> house <G3624> of jail <G1201>, and <G2532> they sported <G1702> with him <G1473>. And <G2532> they stood <G2476> him <G1473> in between <G303.1> the <G3588> two <G1417> posts <G4769>.
26
And <G2532> Samson said <G2036> to <G4314> the <G3588> young man <G3808> the <G3588> leading him by the hand <G5496><G1473>, Allow <G863> me <G1473>! for <G2532> I should handle <G5584> the <G3588> monumental pillars <G2797.3> upon <G1909> of which <G3739> the <G3588> house <G3624> stays <G1991> upon <G1909> them <G1473>.
27
And the <G3588><G1161> house <G3624> was <G1510.7.3> full <G4134> of the <G3588> men <G435> and <G2532> women <G1135>, and <G2532> [were] there <G1563> all <G3956> the <G3588> satraps <G4568.2> of the <G3588> Philistines <G246>. And <G2532> upon <G1909> the <G3588> roof <G1430> [were] about <G5616> three thousand <G5153> men <G435> and <G2532> women <G1135>, looking at <G1689> [and] mocking <G1702> the <G3588> Samson.
28
And <G2532> Samson yelled <G994> to <G4314> Boss '<G2962>, and <G2532> said <G2036>, O Boss '<G2962>, O Boss '<G2962>, remember <G3403> me <G1473>, and <G2532> strengthen <G1765> me <G1473> indeed <G1211> besides <G4133>! even <G2532> the <G3588> this once <G530><G3778> O God '<G2316>, and <G2532> I will avenge <G1556> vengeance <G1557> one <G1520> against <G473> the <G3588> two <G1417> eyes <G3788> for my <G1473> the <G3588> Philistines <G246>.
29
And <G2532> Samson took hold <G4033.2> of the <G3588> two <G1417> posts <G4769> in midst the <G3588><G3319> upon <G1909> which <G3739> the <G3588> house <G3624> stood <G2476>, and <G2532> he stayed <G1991> against <G1909> them <G1473>, one <G1520> at <G1722> the <G3588> right [hand] <G1188> of him <G1473>, and <G2532> one <G1520> at <G1722> the <G3588> at his left <G710><G1473>.
30
And <G2532> Samson said <G2036>, Let die <G599> the <G3588> soul <G5590> of me <G1473> with <G3326> the <G3588> Philistines <G246>. And <G2532> he leaned <G2827> in <G1722> strength <G2479>, and <G2532> fell <G4098> the <G3588> house <G3624> upon <G1909> the <G3588> satraps <G4568.2>, and <G2532> upon <G1909> all <G3956> the <G3588> people <G2992> the <G3588> in <G1722> it <G1473>.
