And Samson went down to Timnath, and saw a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines.2
And he came up , and told his father and his mother, and said , I have seen a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines: now therefore get her for me to wife.3
Then his father and his mothersaid unto him, Is there never a woman among the daughters of thy brethren, or among all my people, that thou goest to take a wife of the uncircumcisedPhilistines? And Samsonsaid unto his father,Get her for me; for she pleaseth me well .
But his father and his motherknew not that it was of the LORD, that he sought an occasion against the Philistines: for at that time the Philistines had dominion over Israel.5
Then wentSamsondown , and his father and his mother, to Timnath, and came to the vineyards of Timnath: and, behold, a younglionroaredagainsta him.
And the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand: but he told not his father or his mother what he had done .
And he went down , and talked with the woman; and she pleasedSamsonwell .
