to take her

Genesis 29:21 And Jacob said to Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, …

Matthew 1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD …

a swarm. It is probable, that the flesh had been entirely consumed off the bones, which had become dry; and the body having been throw into some private place, (for Samson turned aside to visit it,) a swarm of bees had formed their combs in the cavity of the dry ribs, or region of the thorax; nor was it a more improper place than a hollow rock.
