An interesting perspective on Samson's life:

THE SYMBOLISM OF THE LION AND THE BEES: ANOTHER IRONIC TWIST IN THE SAMSON CYCLE

...The Samson story holds a number of rather unique features in comparison with the other cycles in the book of Judges, notwithstanding those features that make it so much like other accounts of the careers of judge- ̃gures.

Thus, even a cursory reading of the book will show that the story of the “last”3of the judges is far more biographical in nature than any of the preceding episodes.

Only the Samson cycle commences with a birth narrative, and that chapter 16 includes an account of Samson’s death also sets the cycle apart as the only one that evokes the notion of a well-rounded story about a judge’s life. It is in the birth narrative that we ̃ndthe conspicuous angelic announcement, which itself is unprecedented in the book of Judges...

...We have noted earlier that the lion’s cadaver was an unlikely host for a“community” of bees. But so was Canaan for Israel. For although the prom-ised land was introduced as a “good land” (see above), initially God’s holynation (cf. Exod 19:6) entered an “unclean” zone....

 Quoting: b4its2l8


It appears Samson withheld the fact that he killed the lion and gave his parents honey from it - because he had a plan of sorts:

Judges 14:10 So his father went down unto the woman: and Samson made there a feast; for so used the young men to do.

11 And it came to pass, when they saw him, that they brought thirty companions to be with him.

12 And Samson said unto them, I will now put forth a riddle unto you: if ye can certainly declare it me within the seven days of the feast, and find it out, then I will give you thirty sheets and thirty change of garments
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75431078


So Samson's plan was a riddle - most likely this played a part in God's weakening the Philistines:

Judges 14:13 But if ye cannot declare it me, then shall ye give me thirty sheets and thirty change of garments. And they said unto him, Put forth thy riddle, that we may hear it...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77726443


The men tried to unravel the riddle for 3 days, to no avail:

Judges 14:14 And he said unto them, Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness. And they could not in three days expound the riddle.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77162995


The men were not to be out witted and decided to use his wife to get the solution - threatening her family with violence:

Judges 14:15 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they said unto Samson's wife, Entice thy husband, that he may declare unto us the riddle, lest we burn thee and thy father's house with fire: have ye called us to take that we have? is it not so?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77098590


The wife fearful for her and her families lives, under duress, caved into their threats and convinced Samson to give her the answer:

Judges 14:17 And she wept before him the seven days, while their feast lasted: and it came to pass on the seventh day, that he told her, because she lay sore upon him: and she told the riddle to the children of her people.

This betrayal angered Samson and bears witness to his God given purpose in life - to slowly but surely weaken the Philistines:

Judges 14:19 And the Spirit of the Lord came upon him, and he went down to Ashkelon, and slew thirty men of them, and took their spoil, and gave change of garments unto them which expounded the riddle. And his anger was kindled, and he went up to his father's house

Each betrayal brought severe reprisals - and there were many:

Judges 15:4 And Samson went and caught three hundred foxes, and took firebrands, and turned tail to tail, and put a firebrand in the midst between two tails.

5 And when he had set the brands on fire, he let them go into the standing corn of the Philistines, and burnt up both the shocks, and also the standing corn, with the vineyards and olives.

The philistines sought out the perpetrator, and when they found out it was Samson and why - they burnt his wife and father.

Judges 15:6 Then the Philistines said, Who hath done this? And they answered, Samson, the son in law of the Timnite, because he had taken his wife, and given her to his companion.
