CHOSEN JUDGE:

OF YOUR PEOPLE.

AND WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

MARRY A DAUGHTER

OF OUR ENEMIES --

A PHILISTINE WOMAN TO BE

THE MOTHER OF SAMSON'S CHILDREN.

I OUGHT TO TURN YOU OVER MY KNEE

THE WAY I USED TO,

AND NOT SO MANY YEARS AGO.

RUN ALONG, OR YOUR MOTHER

WILL BE TANNING YOUR HIDE, TOO.

[ BLEATS ]

YEAH, THAT'S THE TRUTH.

NOW LOOK:

WHAT YOU'VE DONE.

OH, YOU'RE A STUBBORN,

WITLESS OX.

I'M YOUR SON.

OH, SAMSON, WHY CAN'T YOU BE

LIKE OUR NEIGHBORS' SONS --

CONTENT TO WATCH

THEIR FATHERS' FLOCKS

AND CHOOSING A WIFE

FROM OUR OWN VILLAGE?

FORBIDDEN FIGS:

ARE SWEETER.

BUT THE SWEETEST FIGS GROW

RIGHT IN YOUR OWN GARDEN.

WHY, FROM MORNING

TILL NIGHT,

MIRIAM'S HANDS

ARE NEVER IDLE.

NO CROSS WORDS:

EVER PASS HER LIPS.

AND YOU WOULD HARNESS

THIS ANGEL:

TO A STUBBORN,

WITLESS OX?

OH, YOU'RE NOT ALL BAD,

SAMSON.

AH!

BUT YOUR EYES ALWAYS FIND

WHAT THEY:

SHOULDN'T.

WHY, A WIFE LIKE MIRIAM

WOULD BRING OU THE GOOD IN YOU.

A MAN MUST MARRY

WHERE HIS HEART LEADS HIM,

LITTLE MOTHER.

A MAN'S HEAR CAN BE BLIND, SON.

Man:
SAMSON, SAMSON!

SOME PHILISTINE SOLDIERS

AT THE WELL.

WHO THIS TIME, FATHER?

THE OLD STORYTELLER.

THE SOLDIERS HAVE GONE.

THE TROUBLE IS PASSED.

WELL, THE TROUBLE WITH HIM

ISN'T PASSED.

TELL MIRIAM:

WHAT YOU JUST TOLD ME.

NOW, HAZEL.

YOU WAIT UNTIL YOU HEAR WHA THIS FINE SON OF YOURS IS ABOUT.

GO ON, TELL HER.

GO ON.

THIS TIME, YOU MUST HAVE DONE

SOMETHING REALLY TERRIBLE.

MIRIAM...

YOU'RE FURTHER ABOVE ME

THAN THE MOON.

BUT NOT AS HARD:

TO REACH.

ONLY STRETCH OU YOUR HAND.

I DON'T WANT TO HURT YOU,

MIRIAM.

YOU'RE LIKE A SPARROW,

SO GENTLE AND --

THAT'S A VERY GENTLE WAY

OF TELLING ME:

THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE

WITH SOMEONE ELSE.

YOU ALWAYS SEE:

THROUGH PEOPLE:

AS...IF THEY WERE

COBWEBS.

I HEAR YOU SAW A WOMAN
