Judges 17:6 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

This terrible blow necessarily made a powerful impression upon the Philistines, not only plunging them into deep mourning at the death of their princes and so many of their countrymen, and the destruction of the temple of Dagon, but filling them with fear and terror at the omnipotence of the God of the Israelites. Under these circumstances it is conceivable enough that the brethren and relatives of Samson were able to come to Gaza, and fetch away the body of the fallen hero, to bury it in his father's grave between Zorea and Eshtaol (see Judges 13:25). - In conclusion, it is once more very appropriately observed that Samson had judged Israel twenty years (cf. Judges 15:20).
