    what is sweeter than honey and stronger than a lion? OUR REDEEMER!!!!!!!!!!! THE JOY OF THE LORD is thy strength.
  • A disciple
    "But his father and his mother knew not that it was of the LORD, that he sought an occasion against the Philistines: for at that time the Philistines had dominion over Israel." The LORD God knows ALL that is in man; and He knows ALL about our circumstances, and who they are, and what evil they imagine against us. Let US not be afraid of what we see coming on the world. It is the LORD! Praise Him!

    Samson tore a lion in two in verse 6. When one has power from God then he or she can do things they would not normally be able to do in their own strength.

    To understand Judges 14
    Read John 4: 32, Judges 14: 5 -18, Rev 10: 10, Isaiah 30: 17, Matt 21:5:

    I hold meat to be eaten that you have not perceived.
    The truth is both stronger than a lion and sweeter than honey
    It is both sweet to say and can be hard to swallow
    The truth can kill or it only stings a little
    Turning death to life like mourning with a fiddle.
  • Anthony Sims for verse 9
    Samson was a Nazerene. Eating the honey from the carcass of the lion he killed earlier was a sin. Nazerene men were not allow to consume unclean food or drink. Samson opened the floodgates of hell by eating honey. This is much more than a story about a haircut and slaying philistines and chasing women. I was once a meth addict, now I am healed. It 's not only the meth I must stay away from, but I must be AWARE of the sweet honey satan tempts me with. The devil uses the smallest of sins to lead us back down the road to destruction. Also reference Proverbs ch. 5. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Jesus heals! Jesus saves! Jesus loves! Hallelujah!

    Love is sweeter than honey and stronger than lion
  • Lwandile for verse 9
    That lion which Samson collected honey from wanted to kill him but the revealation of this scripture is that what seem a battle today will be a blessing tomorrow.

    it seems to me, that if you are a child of Israel you can kill people who are not children of Israel this seems to be the common thread through out the old testament. why don 't they have to follow gods commandments, but everybody else have to follow them?
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 19
    This is not crazy, for the LORD God had put it in the heart of Sampson to kill the Philistines. This is not murder, for Israel is at war with the Philistines. Sampson's manifest destiny is to begin to deliver the children of Israel from the hands of the Philistines. Yet Sampson did compromise on his vow, for he was not to come near a dead body, and this compromise lead him to other compromises that ultimately caused him to lose his power. In the end Sampson killed more Philistines in his death, than he did in his life. This story is a lesson to us not to compromise with sin, and to live a holy life separated to God, and his people. We must stay in fellowship with the Father so that we will have power to overcome the enemy.
  • Louverrna for verse 1
    Where in judges is it about Adah offering her self to be sacering her self because of the vow that her father made unto the lord that whom ever came from his house when he return from battle.
  • Tom Brown for verse 19
    This sounds crazy. So God tells him to murder 30 men for their clothes?

    jael, wow my man ! just stick to the word of God, too much learning has made your words unlike Gods word ! you sound like a lama or buddhist !
  • RAYMOND MEMBER for verse 18
    Judges 14:18. What is sweeter then honey? And what is stronger than a Lion?.. This riddle has been answered. Please, I need to know.

    @Jael,
    It sounds like you’ve read too many mystical books. Just stick to The Word and God shall reveal its secrets to you!
  • Jael
    This chapter reveals the mystic origin of all scripture: it demonstrates clearly the process described in Exodus 3 wherein Moses having refused God's demand to be the Almighty's voice on earth a system of "Chinese whispers" is established instead which completely misses out the metaphysics - the essential level of truth which distinguishes the authentic Word of God from mere literary genius. In this chapter the eternal truth of the image has given way to a concept involving physical violence, carniverous behaviour and a complete absence of self- awareness, all of which are characteristics classified among the negative in true scripture.Editing of the original metaphysics occurs for several reasons (1) ignorance of the editor (2) deliberate distortion or omission for commercial, political, racial, or military reasons (3)psychological inadequacy of the editor who in the presence of superior intellect feels a compulsion to assert his or her own identity. Thus are people denied access to Eternal Truth in the name of personal ego which produces atheism disguised as piety and "responsibility"
