Samson Tears a Lion Apart with His Bare Hands
“Then went Samson down, and his father and his mother, to Timnah, and came to the vineyards of Timnah: and, behold, a young lion roared against him. And the Spirit of Jehovah came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid; and he had nothing in his hand: but he told not his father or his mother what he had done.” Judges 14:5-6 ASV
Illustration of Samson tearing apart the jaw of a lion he is killing. He is wearing a tunic and cloak. He has long hair and a thick beard. The lion appears to be alive still. The terrain is rocky with some foliage.
