New International Version
28 Then Samson prayed to the Lord,(A) “Sovereign Lord, remember me. Please, God, strengthen me just once more, and let me with one blow get revenge(B) on the Philistines for my two eyes.” 29 Then Samson reached toward the two central pillars on which the temple stood. Bracing himself against them, his right hand on the one and his left hand on the other, 30 Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” Then he pushed with all his might, and down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more when he died than while he lived.
31 Then his brothers and his father’s whole family went down to get him. They brought him back and buried him between Zorah and Eshtaol in the tomb of Manoah(C) his father. He had led[a](D) Israel twenty years.(E)
