Judges 15 ©
Samson returning to visit his wife is denied admittance to her. He setteth fire to the corn of the Philistines with foxes and firebrands: his wife and her father are burned by the Philistines. Samson smiteth them, and retireth to the rock Etam. The Philistines come up against him: the men of Judah with his consent deliver him bound to the Philistines. He killeth a thousand of the Philistines with the jawbone of an ass. God openeth a fountain in Lehi to relieve his thirst.
¶And Samson said concerning them, 2Now shall I be more blameless than the Philistines, though I do them a displeasure.
And when he had set the brands on fire, he let them go into the standing corn of the Philistines, and burnt up both fthe *shocks, and also the standing corn, with the vineyards and olives.
And the men of Judah said, Why are ye come up against us? And they answered, To bind Samson are we come up, to do to him as he hath done to us.
¶And when he came unto Lehi, the qPhilistines shouted against him: and the rSpirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and sthe cords that were upon his arms became as flax that was burnt with fire, and his bands 5loosed from off his hands.
And Samson said, With the jawbone of an ass, 7heaps upon heaps, with the jaw of an ass have I slain a thousand men.
And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking, that he cast away the jawbone out of his hand, and called that place 8Ramath-lehi.
¶And uhe was *sore athirst, and called on the LORD, and said, vThou hast given this great deliverance into the hand of thy servant: and now wshall I die for thirst, and fall into the hand of the uncircumcised?
But God *clave xan hollow place that was in the 9jaw, and there came water thereout; and when he had drunk, his spirit came again, and he revived: wherefore he called the name thereof 10En-hakkore, which is in Lehi unto this day.
