Judges 16:9-10

Context
16:9 They hid 1  in the bedroom and then she said to him, “The Philistines are here, 2  Samson!” He snapped the bowstrings as easily as a thread of yarn snaps when it is put close to fire. 3  The secret of his strength was not discovered. 4 

16:10 Delilah said to Samson, “Look, you deceived 5  me and told me lies! Now tell me how you can be subdued.”

1 tn Heb “And the ones lying in wait were sitting for her.” The grammatically singular form וְהָאֹרֵב (vÿhaorev) is collective here, referring to the rulers as a group (so also in v. 16).

2 tn Heb “are upon you.”

3 tn Heb “when it smells fire.”

4 tn Heb “His strength was not known.”

5 tn See Gen 31:7; Exod 8:29 [8:25 HT]; Job 13:9; Isa 44:20; Jer 9:4 for other uses of this Hebrew word (II תָּלַל, talal), which also occurs in v. 13.
