Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 16:20

_ _ he wist not that the Lord was departed from him — What a humiliating and painful spectacle! Deprived of the divine influences, degraded in his character, and yet, through the infatuation of a guilty passion, scarcely awake to the wretchedness of his fallen condition!

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 16:18-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 16:20

Said — Within himself. Shake myself — That is, put forth my strength. Knew not — Not distinctly feeling the loss of his hair, or not considering what would follow. Many have lost the favourable presence of God, and are not aware of it. They have provoked God to withdraw from them; but are not sensible of their loss.
