Judg 14:1-5

Samson's Marriage 1Once Samson went down to Timnah, and at Timnah he saw a Philistine woman.2Then he came up, and told his father and mother, “I saw a Philistine woman at Timnah; now get her for me as my wife.”3But his father and mother said to him, “Is there not a woman among your kin, or among all our people, that you must go to take a wife from the uncircumcised Philistines?” But Samson said to his father, “Get her for me, because she pleases me.”4His father and mother did not know that this was from the Lord; for he was seeking a pretext to act against the Philistines. At that time the Philistines had dominion over Israel.5Then Samson went down with his father and mother to Timnah. When he came to the vineyards of Timnah, suddenly a young lion roared at him.
