Data culled from the Hebrew Bible (e.g., Ezek 19:19-9) and, especially, zoology casts light on the odd construct phrase in Judg 14:5, kěpîr ' ărāyôt. The phrase, which may even be a compound word, is best understood as designating a nomadic subadult lion. This makes good sense of a number of details in the narrative, including the lion's location in the vineyards of Timnah and its agressive behavior. It also underscores still further the astonishing nature of Samson's victory over precisely this kind of lion.
