Judges Chapter 14 Summary Part 2
Judge chapter 14 summary part two continues with Samson’s wife being enticed to tell her husband’s strengthening secrets.
“No he doesn’t go to the gym 40 hours a week, and no he doesn’t drink protein shakes all day,” she said!
So they got real serious about getting her to talk!
They threatened her with burning down her father’s house and her also. She turns and “badgers” Samson until he tells her the riddle and she tells her people and they tell the riddle to Samson before the seven days.
He knows how they found out, but he still pays up.
Look how he pays up; he goes to Ashkelon (an old Canaanite settlement), he destroys 30 men and takes their clothing to pay up for the lost wager on the riddle, and the Spirit of the Lord was on him when he went down.
The chapter ends with Samson’s wife leaving him for his friend. Wow, what a girl! Well actually, she was taken back by her father because they thought by her devious doing, he would hate and kill her.
Who needs reality TV when we have this kind of drama in the greatest book of all time?
We pray the Father to add blessings to the reading and doing of His Holy Word through His Son Jesus the Messiah. Amen!
