Judges 14:18 DBY

16  And Samson's wife wept before him, and said, 'You only hate me, you do not love me; you have put a riddle to my countrymen, and you have not told me what it is.' And he said to her, 'Behold, I have not told my father nor my mother, and shall I tell you?'

17  She wept before him the seven days that their feast lasted; and on the seventh day he told her, because she pressed him hard. Then she told the riddle to her countrymen.

18  And the men of the city said to him on the seventh day before the sun went down, 'What is sweeter than honey? What is stronger than a lion?' And he said to them, 'If you had not plowed with my heifer, you would not have found out my riddle.'

19  And the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and he went down to Ash'kelon and killed thirty men of the town, and took their spoil and gave the festal garments to those who had told the riddle. In hot anger he went back to his father's house.

20  And Samson's wife was given to his companion, who had been his best man.
