Bible: Judges 16:23-25

Samson’s Death and Burial

16:23 The rulers of the Philistines gathered to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god and to celebrate. They said, “Our god has handed Samson, our enemy, over to us.” 16:24 When the people saw him, 1  they praised their god, saying, “Our god has handed our enemy over to us, the one who ruined our land and killed so many of us! 2 

16:25 When they really started celebrating, 3  they said, “Call for Samson so he can entertain us!” So they summoned Samson from the prison and he entertained them. 4  They made him stand between two pillars.
