Bible: Judges 15:14-20

15:14 When he arrived in Lehi, the Philistines shouted as they approached him. But the Lord’s spirit empowered 1  him. The ropes around his arms were like flax dissolving in 2  fire, and they 3  melted away from his hands. 15:15 He happened to see 4  a solid 5  jawbone of a donkey. He grabbed it 6  and struck down 7  a thousand men. 15:16 Samson then said,

With the jawbone of a donkey

I have left them in heaps; 8 

with the jawbone of a donkey

I have struck down a thousand men!

15:17 When he finished speaking, he threw the jawbone down 9  and named that place Ramath Lehi. 10 

15:18 He was very thirsty, so he cried out to the Lord and said, “You have given your servant 11  this great victory. But now must I die of thirst and fall into hands of the Philistines? 12  15:19 So God split open the basin 13  at Lehi and water flowed out from it. When he took a drink, his strength 14  was restored and he revived. For this reason he named the spring 15  En Hakkore. 16  It remains in Lehi to this very day. 15:20 Samson led 17  Israel for twenty years during the days of Philistine prominence. 18
