Samson said to them, "This time I have a right to get even with the Philistines; I will really harm them."
So he went out and caught three hundred foxes1 and tied them tail to tail in pairs. He then fastened a torch2 to every pair of tails,
lit the torches3 and let the foxes loose in the standing grain of the Philistines. He burned up the shocks4 and standing grain, together with the vineyards and olive groves.
When the Philistines asked, "Who did this?" they were told, "Samson, the Timnite's son-in-law, because his wife was given to his friend.5" So the Philistines went up and burned her6 and her father to death.77
Samson said to them, "Since you've acted like this, I won't stop until I get my revenge on you."
He attacked them viciously and slaughtered many of them. Then he went down and stayed in a cave in the rock8 of Etam.9
