21 H6430 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 ground H1004 at the mill in the H631 prison.
22 H8181 However the hair H7218 of his head H2490 began H6779 to grow again H834 after H1548 he was shaved.
23 H5633 The lords H6430 of the Philistines H622 gathered them together H2076 to offer H1419 a great H2076 sacrifice H1712 to Dagon H430 their god, H8057 and to rejoice; H559 for they said, H430 "Our god H5414 has delivered H8123 Samson H341 our enemy H3027 into our hand."
24 H5971 When the people H7200 saw H1984 him, they praised H430 their god; H559 for they said, H430 "Our god H5414 has delivered H341 our enemy H2717 and the destroyer H776 of our country, H2491 who has slain H7235 many H3027 of us, into our hand."
25 H3820 It happened, when their hearts H2896 were merry, H559 that they said, H7121 "Call H8123 for Samson, H7832 that he may entertain H7121 us." They called H8123 for Samson H631 out of the prison; H1004 H6711 and he performed H6440 before them. H5975 They set H5982 him between the pillars;
26 H8123 and Samson H559 said H5288 to the boy H2388 who held H3027 him by the hand, H3240 "Allow H4184 me to feel H5982 the pillars H1004 whereupon the house H3559 rests, H8172 that I may lean on 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 on the roof H7969 about three H505 thousand H376 men H802 and women, H7200 who saw H8123 while Samson H7832 performed.
28 H8123 Samson H7121 called H3068 to Yahweh, H559 and said, H3068 "Lord H3068 Yahweh, H2142 remember H2388 me, please, and strengthen H6471 me, please, only this once, H430 God, H6471 that I may be at once H5358 avenged H6430 of the Philistines H8147 for my two H5869 eyes."
29 H8123 Samson H3943 took hold H8147 of the two H8432 middle H5982 pillars H1004 on which the house H3559 rested, H5564 H259 and leaned on them, the one H3225 with his right hand, H259 and the other H8040 with his left.
30 H8123 Samson H559 said, H4191 "Let me die H6430 with the Philistines!" H5186 He bowed H3581 himself with all his might; H1004 and the house H5307 fell H5633 on the lords, H5971 and on all the people H4191 who were therein. So the dead H4191 that he killed H4191 at his death H7227 were more H4191 than those who he killed H2416 in his life.
