Judges 15:11-12

Context
15:11 Three thousand men of Judah went down to the cave in the cliff of Etam and said to Samson, “Do you not know that the Philistines rule over us? Why have you done this to us?” He said to them, “I have only done to them what they have done to me.” 15:12 They said to him, “We have come down to take you prisoner so we can hand you over to the Philistines.” Samson said to them, “Promise me 1  you will not kill 2  me.”

1 tn Or “swear to me.”

2 tn Heb “meet [with hostility]”; “harm.” In light of v. 13, “kill” is an appropriate translation.
