Chapter 16 - Judges

1 Then went Samson to Gaza, and saw there an harlot, and went in unto her.1 At naparoon si Samson sa Gaza, at nakakita roon ng isang patutot at sinipingan.
2 And it was told the Gazites, saying, Samson is come hither. And they compassed him in, and laid wait for him all night in the gate of the city, and were quiet all the night, saying, In the morning, when it is day, we shall kill him.2 At ibinalita sa mga taga Gaza na sinasabi, Si Samson ay naparito. At kanilang kinulong siya, at binakayan siya buong gabi sa pintuang-bayan, at tahimik buong gabi, na sinasabi, Maghintay tayo hanggang magbukang liwayway, saka natin patayin siya.
3 And Samson lay till midnight, and arose at midnight, and took the doors of the gate of the city, and the two posts, and went away with them, bar and all, and put them upon his shoulders, and carried them up to the top of an hill that is before Hebron.3 At si Samson ay humiga hanggang hating gabi, at bumangon sa hating gabi at humawak sa mga pinto ng pintuang-bayan, at sa dalawang haligi, at kapuwa binunot, pati ng sikang, at pinasan sa kaniyang mga balikat, at isinampa sa taluktok ng bundok na nasa tapat ng Hebron.
4 And it came to pass afterward, that he loved a woman in the valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah.4 At nangyari pagkatapos, na siya'y suminta sa isang babae sa libis ng Sorec, na ang pangala'y Dalila.
5 And the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and said unto her, Entice him, and see wherein his great strength lieth, and by what means we may prevail against him, that we may bind him to afflict him: and we will give thee every one of us eleven hundred pieces of silver.5 At inahon ng mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo ang babae, at sinabi sa kaniya: Dayain mo siya, at tingnan mo kung saan naroon ang kaniyang dakilang kalakasan, at sa anong paraan mananaig kami laban sa kaniya upang aming matalian at mapighati siya: at bibigyan ka ng bawa't isa sa amin ng isang libo't isang daang putol na pilak.
6 And Delilah said to Samson, Tell me, I pray thee, wherein thy great strength lieth, and wherewith thou mightest be bound to afflict thee.6 At sinabi ni Dalila kay Samson, Saysayin mo sa akin, isinasamo ko sa iyo, kung saan naroon ang iyong dakilang kalakasan, at kung paanong matatalian ka upang pighatiin ka.
7 And Samson said unto her, If they bind me with seven green withs that were never dried, then shall I be weak, and be as another man.7 At sinabi ni Samson sa kaniya, Kung tatalian nila ako ng pitong sariwang yantok na kailan man ay hindi natuyo, ay hihina ako, at ako'y magiging gaya ng alinmang tao.
8 Then the lords of the Philistines brought up to her seven green withs which had not been dried, and she bound him with them.8 Nang magkagayo'y nagdala ang mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo sa kaniya ng pitong sariwang yantok na hindi pa natutuyo, at ipinagtali niya sa kaniya.
9 Now there were men lying in wait, abiding with her in the chamber. And she said unto him, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he brake the withs, as a thread of tow is broken when it toucheth the fire. So his strength was not known.9 Ngayo'y may mga bakay na sa silid sa loob. At sinabi niya sa kaniya, Narito na sa iyo ang mga Filisteo, Samson. At kaniyang pinatid ang mga yantok, na tulad sa taling estopa pagka nadidikitan ng apoy. Sa gayo'y hindi naalaman ang kaniyang lakas.
10 And Delilah said unto Samson, Behold, thou hast mocked me, and told me lies: now tell me, I pray thee, wherewith thou mightest be bound.10 At sinabi ni Dalila kay Samson, Narito, pinaglaruan mo ako, at pinagbulaanan mo ako: isinasamo ko ngayon sa iyo na saysayin mo sa akin kung paano matatalian ka.
11 And he said unto her, If they bind me fast with new ropes that never were occupied, then shall I be weak, and be as another man.11 At sinabi niya sa kaniya, Kung tatalian lamang nila ako ng mga bagong lubid na hindi pa nagagamit, ay hihina nga ako at magiging gaya ng alinmang tao.
12 Delilah therefore took new ropes, and bound him therewith, and said unto him, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And there were liers in wait abiding in the chamber. And he brake them from off his arms like a thread.12 Sa gayo'y kumuha si Dalila ng mga bagong lubid, at itinali sa kaniya, at sinabi sa kaniya, Narito na sa iyo ang mga Filisteo, Samson. At ang mga bakay ay nangasa silid sa loob. At pawang pinatid niya sa kaniyang mga bisig na parang sinulid.
13 And Delilah said unto Samson, Hitherto thou hast mocked me, and told me lies: tell me wherewith thou mightest be bound. And he said unto her, If thou weavest the seven locks of my head with the web.13 At sinabi ni Dalila kay Samson, Hanggang dito'y pinaglaruan mo ako, at pinagbulaanan mo ako: saysayin mo sa akin kung paanong matatalian ka. At sinabi niya sa kaniya, Kung iyong hahabihin ang pitong tirintas sa aking ulo ng hinabing kayo.
14 And she fastened it with the pin, and said unto him, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awaked out of his sleep, and went away with the pin of the beam, and with the web.14 At kaniyang pinagtibay ng tulos, at sinabi sa kaniya, Narito na sa iyo ang mga Filisteo, Samson. At siya'y gumising sa kaniyang pagkakatulog, at binunot ang tulos ng panghabi, at ang hinabi.
15 And she said unto him, How canst thou say, I love thee, when thine heart is not with me? thou hast mocked me these three times, and hast not told me wherein thy great strength lieth.15 At sinabi niya sa kaniya, Bakit nasasabi mo, na iniibig kita, sa bagay ang iyong puso ay hindi sumasaakin? pinaglaruan mo akong makaitlo, at hindi mo isinaysay sa akin kung saan nagpapahinga ang iyong dakilang kalakasan.
16 And it came to pass, when she pressed him daily with her words, and urged him, so that his soul was vexed unto death;16 At nangyari, nang kaniyang igiit araw araw, at kaniyang ipilit sa kaniya, na ang kaniyang loob ay naligalig sa ikamamatay.
17 That he told her all his heart, and said unto her, There hath not come a rasor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto God from my mother's womb: if I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man.17 At isinaysay niya sa kaniya ang kaniyang buong taglayin sa kaniyang puso, at sinabi sa kaniya, Walang pangahit na nagdaan sa aking ulo; sapagka't ako'y naging Nazareo sa Dios mula sa tiyan ng aking ina: kung ako'y ahitan, hihiwalay nga sa akin ang aking lakas, at ako'y hihina, at magiging gaya ng alinmang tao.
18 And when Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lords of the Philistines, saying, Come up this once, for he hath shewed me all his heart. Then the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and brought money in their hand.18 At nang makita ni Dalila na sinaysay sa kaniya, ang buong taglayin niya sa kaniyang puso, ay nagsugo siya at tinawag ang mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo, na sinasabi, Ahunin pa ninyong minsan, sapagka't sinaysay niya sa akin ang buong taglayin niya sa kaniyang puso. Nang magkagayo'y inahon siya ng mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo, at nagdala ng salapi sa kanilang kamay.
19 And she made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him.19 At pinatulog niya siya sa kaniyang mga tuhod; at nagpatawag siya ng isang lalake, at inahit ang pitong tirintas sa kaniyang ulo; at pinasimulan niyang pighatiin siya, at ang kaniyang lakas ay nawala.
20 And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the LORD was departed from him.20 At sinabi niya, Narito na sa iyo ang mga Filisteo, Samson. At siya'y gumising sa kaniyang pagkakatulog, at sinabi, Ako'y lalabas na gaya ng dati, at ako'y magpupumiglas. Nguni't hindi niya talos na ang Panginoo'y humiwalay sa kaniya.
21 But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house.21 At hinuli ng mga Filisteo, at dinukit ang kaniyang mga mata; at inilusong nila sa Gaza, at tinalian siya ng mga pangaw na tanso; at siya'y gumiling sa bilangguan.
22 Howbeit the hair of his head began to grow again after he was shaven.22 Gayon ma'y nagpasimulang tumubo uli ang buhok ng kaniyang ulo, pagkatapos na siya'y maahitan.
23 Then the lords of the Philistines gathered them together for to offer a great sacrifice unto Dagon their god, and to rejoice: for they said, Our god hath delivered Samson our enemy into our hand.23 At nagpipisan ang mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo upang maghandog ng isang dakilang hain kay Dagon na kanilang dios, at mangagalak: sapagka't kanilang sinabi, Ibinigay ng ating dios si Samson na ating kaaway sa ating kamay.
24 And when the people saw him, they praised their god: for they said, Our god hath delivered into our hands our enemy, and the destroyer of our country, which slew many of us.24 At nang makita siya ng bayan, ay kanilang pinuri ang kanilang dios: sapagka't kanilang sinabi, Ibinigay ng ating dios sa ating kamay ang ating kaaway, at ang mangwawasak sa ating lupain, na pumatay sa marami sa atin.
25 And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said, Call for Samson, that he may make us sport. And they called for Samson out of the prison house; and he made them sport: and they set him between the pillars.25 At nangyari, nang masayahan ang kanilang puso, na kanilang sinabi, Tawagin si Samson, upang siya'y ating mapaglaruan. At tinawag nga si Samson mula sa bilangguan; at siya'y pinaglaruan nila. At kanilang inilagay sa pagitan ng mga haligi:
26 And Samson said unto the lad that held him by the hand, Suffer me that I may feel the pillars whereupon the house standeth, that I may lean upon them.26 At sinabi ni Samson sa bata na umaakay sa kaniya sa kamay, Ipahipo mo sa akin ang mga haliging pumipigil ng bahay, upang aking mangahiligan.
27 Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines were there; and there were upon the roof about three thousand men and women, that beheld while Samson made sport.27 Ang bahay nga ay puno ng mga lalake at babae, at ang lahat ng mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo ay nandoon; at sa bubungan ay may tatlong libong lalake at babae, na nanonood samantalang pinaglalaruan si Samson.
28 And Samson called unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.28 At tumawag si Samson sa Panginoon, at sinabi, Oh Panginoong Dios, idinadalangin ko sa iyo na alalahanin mo ako, at idinadalangin ko sa iyong palakasin mo ako, na minsan na lamang, Oh Dios, upang maiganti kong paminsan sa mga Filisteo ang aking dalawang mata.
29 And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood, and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left.29 At si Samson ay pumigil sa dalawang gitnang haligi na pumipigil ng bahay, at isinuhay sa mga yaon, ang isa sa kaniyang kanang kamay, at ang isa'y sa kaniyang kaliwa.
30 And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life.30 At sinabi ni Samson, Mamatay nawa akong kasama ng mga Filisteo, At iniubos niya ang kaniyang buong lakas; at ang bahay ay bumagsak sa mga pangulo, at sa buong bayan na nandoon sa loob. Sa gayo'y ang nangamatay na kaniyang pinatay sa kaniyang kamatayan ay higit kay sa pinatay niya sa kaniyang kabuhayan.
31 Then his brethren and all the house of his father came down, and took him, and brought him up, and buried him between Zorah and Eshtaol in the buryingplace of Manoah his father. And he judged Israel twenty years.31 Nang magkagayo'y lumusong ang kaniyang mga kapatid at ang buong sangbahayan ng kaniyang ama, at kinuha siya, at iniahon siya, at inilibing siya sa pagitan ng Sora at Esthaol sa libingan ni Manoa na kaniyang ama. At siya'y naghukom sa Israel na dalawang pung taon.
