Judges 14:18

And the men of the city said unto him on the seventh day before the sun went down, What is sweeter than honey? and what is stronger than a lion? And he said unto them, If you had not plowed with my heifer, you would not have found out my riddle.

Down, at which time the day ended among the Jews. Heifer. This proverbial expression means, that another's property had been used against himself; (Delrio adag.162) or it may intimate, that improper liberties had been taken with Samson's wife, (Calmet) as her so readily taking one of them for her husband, (ver. 20) might lead us to suspect. (Haydock) The Greek and Latin authors speak of a faithless wife in similar terms. (Theognis. lviii.)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
