Treasury of Scripture

And he went down, and talked with the woman; and she pleased Samson well.









(7) Talked with the woman.--His father and mother seem to have preceded him, and made the betrothal arrangements; otherwise he would not have been allowed by Eastern custom to talk with her. It cannot mean "talked about the woman," as Rosenmller says.

Verse 7. - Went down, as in ver. 1, where see note.
