He said, "If anyone ties me securely with new ropes that have never been used, I'll become as weak as any other man."
King James Bible
And he said unto her, If they bind me fast with new ropes that never were occupied, then shall I be weak, and be as another man.
American Standard Version
And he said unto her, If they only bind me with new ropes wherewith no work hath been done, then shall I become weak, and be as another man.
Young's Literal Translation
And he saith unto her, 'If they certainly bind me with thick bands, new ones, by which work hath not been done, then I have been weak, and have been as one of the human race.'
Judges 16:11 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
If they bind me fast with new ropes - Samson wishes to keep up the opinion which the Philistines held; viz., that his mighty strength was the effect of some charm; and therefore he says, Seven green withs which had not been dried; new ropes that were never occupied; weave the seven locks of my hair with the web, etc.; the green withs, the new ropes, and the number seven, are such matters as would naturally be expected in a charm or spell.
