Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 15:6

_ _ Who hath done this — The author of this outrage, and the cause that provoked such an extraordinary retaliation, soon became known; and the sufferers, enraged by the destruction of their crops, rushing with tumultuous fury to the house of Samson’s wife, “burnt her and her father with fire.” This was a remarkable retribution. To avoid this menace, she had betrayed her husband; and by that unprincipled conduct, eventually exposed herself to the horrid doom which, at the sacrifice of conjugal fidelity, she had sought to escape [Judges 14:15].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 15:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 15:6

Burnt her — For the mischief which she had occasioned them; thus she brought upon herself that mischief which she studied to avoid. The Philistines had threatened to burn her and her father's house with fire. To avoid this she betrayed her husband. And now the very thing she feared comes upon her!

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Judges 15:6

Then the Philistines said, Who hath done this? And they answered, Samson, the son in law of the (d) Timnite, because he had taken his wife, and given her to his companion. And the Philistines came up, and (e) burnt her and her father with fire.

(d) Or, the citizen of Timnath.

(e) So the wicked do not punish vice for love of justice, but for fear of danger, which also might come to them.
