John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 15:14

Shouted — Because they had now their enemy, as they supposed, in their hands. Loosed — Heb. were melted; that is, were dissolved, as things which are melted in the fire. This typified the resurrection of Christ, by the power of the Spirit of holiness. In this he loosed the bands of death, it being impossible he should be holden of them. And thus he triumphed over the powers of darkness, which had shouted against him.
