Bible Cake Collaboration

Made this cake for the Bible Cake Collaboration of Samson and Delilah. In the Book of Judges: Samson and Delilah.. In the book of Judges 💖I hope you like it.. Again Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, so the Lord delivered them into the hands of the Philistines for forty years. 2. A certain man of Zorah, named Manoah, from the clan of the Danites, had a wife who was childless, unable to give birth. 3. The angel of the Lord appeared to her and said, “You are barred and childless, but you are going to become pregnant and give birth to a son. 4. Now see to it that You drink no wine or other fermented drink and that You do not eat anything unclean. 5. You will become pregnant and have a son whose head is never to be touched by a razor because the boy is to be a Nazirite, dedicated to God from the womb. He will take the lead in delivering Israel from the hands of the Philistines.” 6. Then the woman went to her husband and told him, “A man of God came to me. He looked like an angel of God, Very awesome. I didn’t ask him where he came from, and he didn’t tell me his name. 7. But he said to me, ’ You will become pregnant and have a son. Now then, drink no wine or other fermented drink and do not eat anything unclean, because the boy will be a Nazirite of God from the womb until the day of his death.”’ 8. Then Manoah, prayed to the Lord: " Pardon your servant, Lord. I beg you to let the man of God you sent to us come again to teach us how to bring up the boy who is to be born." 9. God heard Manoah, and the angel of God came again to the woman while she was out in the field; but her husband Manoah was not with her. 10. The woman hurried to tell her husband, “He’s here! The man who appeared to me the other day!” 11. Manoah got up and followed his wife. When he came to the man, he said, “Are you the man who talked to my wife?” “I am,” he said. 12. So Manoah asked him, “When your words are fulfilled, what is to be the rule that governs the boy’s life and work?” 13 The angel of the Lord answered, “Your wife must do all that I have told her. 14. She must not eat anything that comes from the grapevine, nor drink any wine or other fermented drink nor eat anything unclean. She must do everything I have commanded her.” 15. Manoah said to the angel of the Lord, “we would like you to stay until we prepare a young goat for you”. 16. The angel of the Lord replied, “Even though you detain me, I will not eat any of your food. But if you prepare a burnt offering, offer it to the Lord.” (Manoah did not realize that it was the angel of the Lord.) 17. Then Manoah inquired of the angel of the Lord, " What is your name, so that we may honor you when your word comes true? " 18. He replied, "Why do you ask my name? It is beyond understanding. " 19. Then Manoah took a young goat, together with the grain offering, and sacrificed it on a rock to the Lord. And the Lord did an amazing thing while Manoah and his wife watched: 20. As the flame blazed up. from the altar toward heaven, the angel of the Lord ascended in the flame. Seeing this, Manoah and His wife fell with their faces to the ground. 21. When the angel of the Lord did not show himself again to Manoah and his wife, Manoah realized it was the angel of the Lord. 22. " We are doomed to die!" he said to his wife. “We have seen God!” 23. But his wife answered, “If the Lord had meant to kill us, he would not have accepted a burnt offering and a grain offering from our hands, nor shown us all these things or now told us this .” 24. The woman gave birth to a boy and named him Samson. He grew and the Lord blessed him, 25. And the spirit of the Lord began to stir him while he was in Mahaneh Dan, between Zorah and Eshtaol. 💖💖💖Judges 13: 1-25 💖💖💖Samson went down to Timnah and saw a young Philistine woman. 2 When he returned, he said to his father and mother, “I have seen a Philistine woman in Timnah; now get her for me as my wife.” 3. His father and mother replied, " Isn’t there an acceptable woman among your relatives or among all our people ? Must you go to the uncircumcised Philistine to get a wife?" But Samson said to His father, “Get her for me. She’s the right one for me.” 4. (His parents did not know that this was from the Lord, who was seeking an occasion to confront the Philistines; for at that time they were ruling over Israel.) 5. Samson went down to Timnah together with his father and mother. As they approached the vineyard of Timnah, suddenly a young lion came roaring toward him. 6. The Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon him so that he tore the Lion apart with his bare hands as he might have torn a young goat . But he told neither his father nor his mother what he had done. 7. Then he went down and talked with the woman, and he liked her. 8. Some time later, when he went back to marry her, he turned aside to look at the lion’s carcass, and in it He saw a swarm of bees and some honey. 9. He scooped out the honey with his hands and ate as he went along. When he rejoined his parents, he gave them some, and they too ate it. But he did not tell them that he had taken the honey from the lion’s carcass. 10. Now His father went down to see the woman. And there Samson held a feast, as was customary for young men. 11. When the people saw him, they chose thirty men to be his companions 12. Let me tell you a riddle," Samson said to them. “If you can give me the answer within the seven days of the feast, I will give you thirty linen garments and thirty sets of clothes. 13. If you can’t tell me the answer, you must give me thirty linen garments and thirty sets of clothes .” “Tell us the riddle,” they said “Lets hear it.” 14. He replied, “Out of the eater, something to eat; out of the strong, something sweet.” For three days they could not give the answer. 15. On the fouth day, they said to Samson’s wife, “Coax your husband into explaining the riddle for us, or we will burn you and your father’s household to death. Did you invite us here to steal our property?” 16. Then Samson’s wife threw herself on him, sobbing, “You hate me! You don’t really love me. You have given my people a riddle,but you haven’t told me the answer .” “I haven’t even explained it to my Father or mother,” he replied, “so why should I explain it to you?” 17. She cried the whole seven days of the feast. So on the seventh day he finally told her, because she continued to press him. She in turn explained the riddle to her people. 18. Before sunset on the seventh day the men of the town said to him, “What is sweeter than honey? What is stronger than a lion ?” Samson said to them, “If you had not plowed with my heifer, you would not have solved my riddle .” 19. Then the spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon him. He went down to Ashkelon, struck down thirty of their men, stripped them of everything and gave their clothes to those who had explained the riddle. Burning with anger, he returned to his father’s home. 20. And Samson’s wife was given to one of his companions who had attended him at the feast. 💖💖💖Judges 14: 1- 29 💖💖💖 Later on, at the time of the wheat harvest, Samson took a young goat and went to visit his wife. He said, “I am going to my wife’s room.” But her father would not let him go in. 2. “I was so sure you hated her,” he said, “That I gave her to your companion. Isn’t her younger sister more attractive? Take her instead.” 3. Samson said to them, “This time I have a right to get even with the Philistines; I will really harm them.” 4. So he went out and caught three hundred foxes and tied them tail to tail in pairs. He then fastened a torch to every pair of tails, 5. lit the torches and let the foxes loose in the standing grain, of the Philistines. He burned up the shocks and standing grain, together with the vineyards and olive groves. 6. When the Philistines asked, " “Who did this?” They were told, "Samson, the timnite son -in -law, because his wife was given to his companion. So the Philistines went up and burned her and her father to death. 7. Samson said to them, “Since you’ve acted like this, I swear that I won’t stop until I get my revenge on you.” 8. He attacked them viciously and slaughtered many of them. Then he went down and stayed in a cave in the rock of Etam. 9. The Philistines went up and camped in Judah, spreading out near Lehi. 10. The people of Judah asked, “Why have you come to fight us ?” " We have come to take Samson prisoner," they answered, " to do to him as he did to us." 11. Then three thousand men from Judah went down to the cave in the rock of Etam and said to Samson, “Don’t you realize that the Philistines are rulers over us? What have you done to us ?” He answered, “I merely did to them what they did to me.” 12. They said to him. " We’ve come to tie you up and to hand you over to the Philistines." Samson said, “Swear to me that You wouldn’t kill me yourselves.” 13. “Agreed,” they answered. “We will only tie you up and hand you over to them. We will not kill you.” So they bound him with two new ropes and led him up from the rock. 14. As he approached Lehi, the Philistines came toward him shouting. The Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon him. The ropes on his arms became like charred flax, and the bindings dropped from his hands. 15. Finding a fresh jawbone of a donkey, he grabbed it an struck down a thousand men. 16. Then Samson said, “With a donkey’s jawbone I have made donkey’s of them. With a donkey’s jawbone I have killed a thousand men.” 17. When he finished speaking, he threw away the jawbone; and the place was called Ramath Lehi. 18. Because he was very thirsty, he cried out to the Lord, “You have given your servant this great victory. Must I now die of thirst and fall into the hands of the uncircumcised?” 19. Then God opened up the hollow place in Lehi, and the water came out of it. When Samson drank, his strength returned and he revived. So the spring was called En Hakkore, and it is still there in Lehi. 20. Samson led Israel for twenty years in the days of the Philistines. 💖💖💖Judges 15: 1-20💖💖💖 Then went Samson to Gaza, and saw there an harlot, and went in unto her. 2. And it was told the Gazites, saying, Samson is come hither. And they compassed him in, and laid wait for him all night in the gate of the city, and were quiet all the night, saying, In the morning, when it is day, we shall kill him. 3. And Samson lay till midnight, and arose at midnight, and took the doors of the gate of the city, and the two posts, and went away with them, bar and all, and put them upon his shoulders, and carried them up to the top of an hill that is before Hebron. 4. And it came to pass afterward, that He loved a woman a woman in the valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah. 5. And the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and said unto her, Entice him, and see wherein his great strength lieth, and by what means we may prevail against him, that we may bind him to afflict him, and we will give thee everyone of us eleven hundred pieces of silver. 6. And Delilah said to Samson, Tell me, I pray thee, wherein the great strength lieth, and wherewith thou mightiest be bound to afflict thee. 7. And Samson said unto her, if they bind me with seven green withs that were never dried, then shall I be weak, and be as another man. 8.Then the lords of the Philistines brought up to her seven green withs which had not been dried, then shall I be weak, and she bound him with them. 9. Now there were men lying in wait, abiding with her in the chamber. And she said unto him, The Philistines be upon upon thee, Samson. And he brake the withs, as a thread of tow is broken when it toucheth the fire. So his strength was not known. 10. And Delilah said unto Samson, Behold, thou hast mocked me, and told me lies: now tell me, I pray thee, where with thou mightest be bound. 11. And he said unto her, if they bind me fast with new ropes that never were occupied, then shall I be weak, and be as another man. 12. Delilah therefore took new ropes, and bound him therewith, and said unto him. The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And there were liers in wait abiding in the chamber. And he brake them from off his arms like a thread. 13. And Delilah said unto Samson, Hitherto thou hast mocked me, and told me lies: tell me wherewith thou mightest be bound. And he said unto her, if thou weavest the seven locks of my hair with the web. 14. And she fastened it with the pin, and said unto him, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awakened out of his sleep, and went away with the pin of the beam, and with the web. 15. And she said unto him, How canst thou say, I love thee, when thine heart is not with me? Thou hast mocked me these three times, and hast not told me wherein thy great strength lieth. 16. And it came to pass, when she pressed him daily with her words, and urged him, so that his soul was vexed unto death; 17. That he told her all his heart, and said unto her, there hath not come a razor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto God from my mother’s womb: if I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man. 18. And when Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lord’s of the Philistines, saying, Come up this once, for he has shewed me all his heart. Then the lords of the Philistines came up into her, and brought money in their hand. 19. And she made him sleep upon her knees. and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him. 20. And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the Lord was departed from him. 21. But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house. 22. Howbeit the hair on his head began to grow again after he was shaven. 23. Then the lords of the Philistines gathered them together for to offer a great sacrifice unto dagon their god, and to rejoice: for they said, Our god hath delivered Samson our enemy into our hand. 24. And when the people saw him, they praised their god: for they said, our god hath delivered into our hands our enemy, and the destroyer of our country, which slew many of us. 25. It came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said, call for Samson, that he may make us sport: and they set him between the pillars. 26. And Samson said unto the lad that held him by the hand, Suffer me that I may feel the pillars whereupon the house standeth, that I may lean upon them. 27. Now the house was full of men and women; and the lords of the Philistines were there; and there were upon the roof about three thousand men and women, that beheld while Samson made sport. 28. And Samson called unto the Lord, and said, O Lord God, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes. 29. And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood, and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left. 30. Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more then they which he slew in his life. 31. Then his brethren and all the house of his father came down, and took him, and brought him up, and buried him between Zorah and Eshtaol in the burying place of Manoah his father. And he judged Israel for twenty years. 💖💖💖Judges 16: 1-31💖💖I am from Florida in the US 💖and I was honored to make this piece for the Collaboration💖😊
