21 H6430 But the Philistines H270 took [H8799] H5365 him, and put out [H8762] H5869 his eyes H3381 , and brought him down [H8686] H5804 to Gaza H631 , and bound [H8799] H5178 him with fetters of brass H2912 ; and he did grind [H8802] H631 in the prison [H8803] H1004 house.
22 H8181 Howbeit the hair H7218 of his head H2490 began [H8686] H6779 to grow again [H8763] H834 after H1548 he was shaven [H8795] .
23 H5633 Then the lords H6430 of the Philistines H622 gathered them together [H8738] H2076 for to offer [H8800] H1419 a great H2077 sacrifice H1712 unto Dagon H430 their god H8057 , and to rejoice H559 : for they said [H8799] H430 , Our god H5414 hath delivered [H8804] H8123 Samson H341 our enemy [H8802] H3027 into our hand.
24 H5971 And when the people H7200 saw [H8799] H1984 him, they praised [H8762] H430 their god H559 : for they said [H8804] H430 , Our god H5414 hath delivered [H8804] H3027 into our hands H341 our enemy [H8802] H2717 , and the destroyer [H8688] H776 of our country H2491 , which slew H7235 many [H8689] of us.
25 H3820 And it came to pass, when their hearts H2896 were merry H559 , that they said [H8799] H7121 , Call [H8798] H8123 for Samson H7832 , that he may make us sport [H8762] H7121 . And they called [H8799] H8123 for Samson H631 out of the prison [H8803] H1004 house H6440 ; and he made them H6711 sport [H8762] H5975 : and they set [H8686] H5982 him between the pillars.
26 H8123 And Samson H559 said [H8799] H5288 unto the lad H2388 that held [H8688] H3027 him by the hand H3240 , Suffer [H8685] H4184 me that I may feel [H8685] [H8675] H3237 [H8685] H5982 the pillars H1004 whereupon the house H3559 standeth [H8737] H8172 , that I may lean [H8735] upon them.
27 H1004 Now the house H4390 was full [H8804] 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 [H8802] H8123 while Samson H7832 made sport [H8800] .
28 H8123 And Samson H7121 called [H8799] H3068 unto the LORD H559 , and said [H8799] H136 , O Lord H3069 GOD H2142 , remember [H8798] H2388 me, I pray thee, and strengthen [H8761] H6471 me, I pray thee, only this once H430 , O God H259 , that I may be at once H5358 avenged [H8735] H5359 H6430 of the Philistines H8147 for my two H5869 eyes.
29 H8123 And Samson H3943 took hold [H8799] H8147 of the two H8432 middle H5982 pillars H1004 upon which the house H3559 stood [H8737] H5564 , and on which it was borne up [H8735] H259 , of the one H3225 with his right hand H259 , and of the other H8040 with his left.
30 H8123 And Samson H559 said [H8799] H4191 , Let me die [H8799] H5315 H6430 with the Philistines H5186 . And he bowed [H8799] H3581 himself with all his might H1004 ; and the house H5307 fell [H8799] H5633 upon the lords H5971 , and upon all the people H4191 that were therein. So the dead [H8801] H4191 which he slew [H8689] H4194 at his death H7227 were more H4191 than they which he slew [H8689] H2416 in his life.
31 H251 Then his brethren H1004 and all the house H1 of his father H3381 came down [H8799] H5375 , and took [H8799] H5927 him, and brought him up [H8799] H6912 , and buried [H8799] H6881 him between Zorah H847 and Eshtaol H6913 in the buryingplace H4495 of Manoah H1 his father H8199 . And he judged [H8804] H3478 Israel H6242 twenty H8141 years.
