It came to pass on the fourth day that they said to Samson’s wife, “Entice your husband to tell the riddle to us, lest we burn you and your father’s house with fire. Have you called us to take our property?” Bible see other translations

“fourth.” Although the Hebrew text reads, “seventh,” that creates a contradiction in the text with such verses as Judges 14:17. The Septuagint and some Aramaic texts read “fourth,” and there is every reason to believe that was the original reading of the Hebrew. There is only a difference of one letter between the Hebrew word for “fourth” and “seventh,” and that could have been made by an accidental scribal error.
