Judges 15:17

17 When he finished speaking, he threw away the jawbone and named that place Ramath-lehi.[a]

Judges 15:17 In-Context

15 He found a fresh jawbone of a donkey, reached out his hand, took it, and killed 1,000 men with it.
16 Then Samson said: With the jawbone of a donkey I have piled them in a heap. With the jawbone of a donkey I have killed 1,000 men.
17 When he finished speaking, he threw away the jawbone and named that place Ramath-lehi.
18 He became very thirsty and called out to the Lord: "You have accomplished this great victory through Your servant. Must I now die of thirst and fall into the hands of the uncircumcised?"
19 So God split a hollow place [in the ground] at Lehi, and water came out of it. After Samson drank, his strength returned, and he revived. That is why he named it En-hakkore, which is in Lehi to this day.
