|Then Samson went down with his father and mother to Timnah,
and he came to the vineyards of Timnah. And behold, a young lion roared
against him; and the spirit of Yahweh came upon him powerfully, and he tore
the lion apart as one tears a goat-kid. And he had nothing in his hand.
In life and in death they were not divided.
They were swifter than eagles.
They were stronger than lions. (2 Samuel 1:23)
