Young's Literal Translation

CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
God clave a hollow place that was in the jaw - אשר בלחי asher ballechi, that was in Lehi; that is, there was a hollow place in this Lehi, and God caused a fountain to spring up in it. Because the place was hollow it was capable of containing the water that rose up in it, and thus of becoming a well.

Samson at first gave the name of Ramath-lehi (the lifting up of the jaw-bone) which denoted him great and triumphant; but now he gives it another name, Enhakkore, which denotes him wanting and dependent.
LibraryWhether the Degrees of Prophecy Can be Distinguished According to the Imaginary vision?
Objection 1: It would seem that the degrees of prophecy cannot be distinguished according to the imaginary vision. For the degrees of a thing bear relation to something that is on its own account, not on account of something else. Now, in prophecy, intellectual vision is sought on its own account, and imaginary vision on account of something else, as stated above (A, ad 2). Therefore it would seem that the degrees of prophecy are distinguished not according to imaginary, but only according to …
