    Definitions for Judges 13:24

    Blessed - Happy.

    Clarke's Commentary on Judges 13:24

    And called his name Samson - The original שמשון shimshon, which is from the root שמש shamash, to serve, (whence shemesh, the sun), probably means either a little sun, or a little servant; and this latter is so likely a name to be imposed on an only son, by maternal fondness, that it leaves but little doubt of the propriety of the etymology.

    And the Lord blessed him - Gave evident proofs that the child was under the peculiar protection of the Most High; causing him to increase daily in stature and extraordinary strength.

    Barnes' Notes on Judges 13:24

    Samson - The etymology is doubtful. Perhaps it comes from a word signifying "to minister," in allusion to his Nazaritic consecration to the service of God.

    Wesley's Notes on Judges 13:24

    13:24 Blessed him - That is, endowed him with all those graces and gifts of mind and body which were necessary for the work he was designed for.
