And of Dan he said, Dan is a lion's whelp: he shall leap from Bashan.
Dan will judge his people as one of the tribes of Israel.
He will be a snake by the road, a viper beside the path, that bites the horses' heels so that its rider falls backwards.
When the territory of the Danites slipped out of their control, they went up and fought against Leshem, captured it, and struck it down with the sword. So they took possession of it, lived there, and renamed Leshem after their ancestor Dan.
There was a certain man from Zorah, from the family of Dan, whose name was Manoah; his wife was barren and had no children.
So the woman gave birth to a son and named him Samson. The boy grew, and the LORD blessed him.
Then the Spirit of the LORD began to direct him in the Camp of Dan, between Zorah and Eshtaol.
the Spirit of the LORD took control of him, and he tore the lion apart with his bare hands as he might have torn a young goat. But he did not tell his father or mother what he had done.
The Spirit of the LORD took control of him, and he went down to Ashkelon and killed 30 of their men. He stripped them and gave their clothes to those who had explained the riddle. In a rage, Samson returned to his father's house,
He tore them limb from limb with a great slaughter, and he went down and stayed in the cave at the rock of Etam.
He found a fresh jawbone of a donkey, reached out his hand, took it, and killed 1,000 men with it.
Samson said, "Let me die with the Philistines." He pushed with all his might, and the temple fell on the leaders and all the people in it. And the dead he killed at his death were more than those he had killed in his life.
After they had taken the gods Micah had made and the priest that belonged to him, they went to Laish, to a quiet and unsuspecting people. They killed them with their swords and burned down the city.
From the Danites: 28,600 trained for battle.
