Judges 16:3 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

When he had given utterance to his saying, he threw the jaw-bone away, and called the place Ramath-lechi, i.e., the jaw-bone height. This seems to indicate that the name Lechi in Judges 15:9 is used proleptically, and that the place first received its name from this deed of Samson.
