“And the men of Iudah said, Why are ye come vp against vs? and they answered, To bind Samson are we come vp, to doe to him, as he hath done to vs.”
King James Version (KJV)
7. ¶ And Samson said vnto them, Though ye haue done this, yet will I be auenged of you, and after that, I wil cease. 8. And he smote them hip and thigh, with a great slaughter; and hee went down and dwelt in the top of the rocke Etam. 9. ¶ Then the Philistines went vp, and pitched in Iudah, and spread themselues in Lehi. 10. And the men of Iudah said, Why are ye come vp against vs? and they answered, To bind Samson are we come vp, to doe to him, as he hath done to vs. 11. Then three thousand men of Iudah went to the top of the rocke Etam, and sayd to Samson; Knowest thou not that the Philistines are rulers ouer vs? What is this that thou hast done vnto vs? And he said vnto them, As they did vnto me, so haue I done vnto them. 12. And they said vnto him, Wee are come downe to binde thee, that we may deliuer thee into the hand of the Philistines. And Samson said vnto them, Sweare vnto me, that yee will not fall vpon me your selues. 13. And they spake vnto him, saying; No: but wee will binde thee fast, and deliuer thee into their hand: but surely we will not kill thee. And they bound him with two new cordes, and brought him vp from the rocke.
