      That is, God permitted it, that it might be a means of

      forbidden to the Israelites, to keep them separate from the
      idolatrous nations.
    
       * Jos 11:20 1Ki 12:15 2Ki 6:33 2Ch 10:15; 22:7; 25:20 Ps 115:3

      Now it is not intimated that he did this by his own natural
      strength; but by the supernatural strength communicated by the
      Spirit of the Lord coming mightily upon him; which strength
      was not at his own command, but was, by the will of God,
      attached to his hair and nazarate.
    
       * Jud 15:8,15; 16:30 1Sa 17:34-37,46 Zec 4:6 1Jo 3:8

      It is probable, that the flesh had been entirely consumed off
      the bones, which had become dry; and the body having been
      throw into some private place, (for Samson turned aside to
      visit it,) a swarm of bees had formed their combs in the
      cavity of the dry ribs, or region of the thorax; nor was it a
      more improper place than a hollow rock.

    - the seven.
       * Ge 29:27,28 2Ch 7:8
    - sheets.  or, shirts.
      This will receive illustration from Mr. Jackson's description
      of the Moorish dress:--"It resembles that of the ancient
      patriarchs, as represented in paintings; (but the paintings
      are taken from Asiatic models:)  that of the men consists of a
      red cap and turban, a ({kumja}) shirt, which hangs outside of
      the drawers, and comes below the knee; a ({caftan}) coat,
      which buttons close before, and down to the bottom with large
      open sleeves; over which, when they go out of doors, they
      throw carelessly, and sometimes elegantly, a {hayk,} or
      garment of white cotton, silk, or wool, five or six yards
      long, and five feet wide.  The Arabs often dispense with the
      {caftan,} and even with the shirt, wearing nothing but the
      {hayk.}"
    
       * Mt 27:28 Mr 14:51,52
    - change.
       * Ge 45:22 2Ki 5:5,22 Mt 6:19 Jas 5:2

       * Ro 8:37 2Co 4:17; 12:9,10 Php 1:12-20 Heb 2:14,15; 12:10,11
       * Jas 1:2-4 1Pe 2:24
    - they could.
       * Pr 24:7 Mt 13:11 Ac 8:31
    
    
    VERSE 15 
     - on the seventh day.
      The LXX. reads "on the fourth day;" with which the Syriac and
      Arabic agree.  This, as Dr. Wall observes, is certainly right;
      for it appears from ver. 17, that she wept the remainder of
      the seven days; for which there could have been no time, if
      they did not threaten her till the seventh.

    - I have not.
       * Ge 2:24
    
    
    VERSE 17 
     - the seven,  or, the rest of the seven days.  she lay.
       * Jud 16:6,13,16 Ge 3:6 Job 2:9 Pr 7:21 Lu 11:8; 18:4,5
    - and she told.
       * Pr 2:16,17
    
    VERSE 18
    
    
    VERSE 19 
     - the Spirit.
       * :6; 3:10; 13:25; 15:14 1Sa 11:6
    - spoil.  or, apparel.
    
    
    VERSE 20
