Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 16:31

_ _ Then his brethren and all the house of his father came down, and took him, and brought him up, and buried him — This awful catastrophe seems to have so completely paralyzed the Philistines, that they neither attempted to prevent the removal of Samson’s corpse, nor to molest the Israelites for a long time after. Thus the Israelitish hero rendered by his strength and courage signal services to his country, and was always regarded as the greatest of its champions. But his slavish subjection to the domination of his passions was unworthy of so great a man and lessens our respect for his character. Yet he is ranked among the ancient worthies who maintained a firm faith in God (Hebrews 11:32).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 16:22-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 16:31

Buried — While the Philistines were under such grief, and consternation, that they had neither heart nor leisure to hinder them.
