    Definitions for Judges 14:6

    Rent - Divided; broke or tore apart.

    Clarke's Commentary on Judges 14:6

    He rent him as he would have rent a kid - Now it is not intimated that he did this by his own natural strength, but by the Spirit of the Lord coming mightily upon him: so that his strength does not appear to be his own, nor to be at his command; his might was, by the will of God, attached to his hair and to his Nazarate.

    Wesley's Notes on Judges 14:6

    14:6 Came mightily - Increased his courage and bodily strength. A kid - As soon and as safely. Told not, and c. - Lest by their means it should be publickly known; for he wisely considered, that it was not yet a fit time to awaken the jealousies and fears of the Philistines concerning him, as this would have done.
