Judges 14:18 YLT

16  And Samson's wife weepeth for it, and saith, 'Thou hast only hated me, and hast not loved me; the riddle thou hast put forth to the sons of my people -- and to me thou hast not declared it;' and he saith to her, 'Lo, to my father and to my mother I have not declared 'it' -- and to thee I declare 'it'!'

17  And she weepeth for it the seven days 'in' which their banquet hath been, and it cometh to pass on the seventh day that he declareth 'it' to her, for she hath distressed him; and she declareth the riddle to the sons of her people.

18  And the men of the city say to him on the seventh day, before the sun goeth in: -- 'What 'is' sweeter than honey? And what stronger than a lion?' And he saith to them: 'Unless ye had ploughed with my heifer, Ye had not found out my riddle.'

19  And the Spirit of Jehovah prospereth over him, and he goeth down to Ashkelon, and smiteth of them thirty men, and taketh their armour, and giveth the changes to those declaring the riddle; and his anger burneth, and he goeth up to the house of his father;

20  and Samson's wife becometh his companion's, who 'is' his friend.
