Treasury of Scripture

Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?

Judges 14:11
And it came to pass, when they saw him, that they brought thirty companions to be with him.









(6) Shall the companions make a banquet of him?--Or, Shall the bands of fishermen make traffic of him? or, dig a pit for him?--the former suiting the parallelism better.

Verse 6. - Shall the companions make a banquet of him? rather. Shall the companions make a traffic of him? By "the companions" we may understand either the guilds or companies of fishermen, which might be regarded as engaged in making the capture, or the travelling bands of merchants, who might be supposed willing to purchase him and carry him away. As no one of these last could be imagined rich enough to make the purchase alone, a further question is asked, Shall they part him among the merchants? i.e. allow a number to club together, each taking a share.
