21 H6430 And the Philistines H270 laid H5365 hold on him, and put out H5869 his eyes; H3381 and they brought him down H5804 to Gaza, H631 and bound H5178 him with fetters of brass; H2912 and he did grind H631 in the H1004 prison-house.
22 H8181 Howbeit the hair H7218 of his head H2490 began H6779 to grow again H834 after H1548 he was shaven.
23 H5633 And the lords H6430 of the Philistines H622 gathered them together H2076 to offer H1419 a great H2076 sacrifice H1712 unto Dagon H430 their god, H8057 and to rejoice; H559 for they said, H430 Our god H5414 hath delivered H8123 Samson H341 our enemy H3027 into our hand.
24 H5971 And when the people H7200 saw H1984 him, they praised H430 their god; H559 for they said, H430 Our god H5414 hath delivered H3027 into our hand H341 our enemy, H2717 and the destroyer H776 of our country, H2491 who hath slain H7235 many of us.
25 H3820 And it came to pass, when their hearts H2896 were merry, H559 that they said, H7121 Call H8123 for Samson, H7832 that he may make us sport. H7121 And they called H8123 for Samson H631 out of the H1004 prison-house; H6711 and he made sport H6440 before them. H5975 And they set H5982 him between the pillars:
26 H8123 and Samson H559 said H5288 unto the lad H2388 that held H3027 him by the hand, H3240 Suffer H4184 me that I may feel H5982 the pillars H1004 whereupon the house H3559 resteth, H8172 that I may lean upon them.
27 H1004 Now the house H4390 was full H582 of men H802 and women; H5633 and all the lords H6430 of the Philistines H1406 were there; and there were upon the roof H7969 about three H505 thousand H376 men H802 and women, H7200 that beheld H8123 while Samson H7832 made sport.
28 H8123 And Samson H7121 called H3068 unto Jehovah, H559 and said, H3068 O Lord H3068 Jehovah, H2142 remember H2388 me, I pray thee, and strengthen H6471 me, I pray thee, only this once, H430 O God, H259 that I may be at once H5358 avenged H6430 of the Philistines H8147 for my two H5869 eyes.
29 H8123 And Samson H3943 took hold H8147 of the two H8432 middle H5982 pillars H1004 upon which the house H3559 rested, H5564 H259 and leaned upon them, the one H3225 with his right hand, H259 and the other H8040 with his left.
30 H8123 And Samson H559 said, H4191 Let me die H6430 with the Philistines. H5186 And he bowed H3581 himself with all his might; H1004 and the house H5307 fell H5633 upon the lords, H5971 and upon all the people H4191 that were therein. So the dead H4191 that he slew H4194 at his death H7227 were more H4191 than they that he slew H2416 in his life.
31 H251 Then his brethren H1004 and all the house H1 of his father H3381 came down, H5375 and took H5927 him, and brought him up, H6912 and buried H6881 him between Zorah H847 and Eshtaol H6913 in the burying-place H4495 of Manoah H1 his father. H8199 And he judged H3478 Israel H6242 twenty H8141 years.
