In Judges 3:31, we read that Shamgar used an oxgoad to get 600 Philistines.  Twelve chapters later, in Judges 15:15, we read that Samson used a donkey jawbone to get 1000 Philistines.  (Of course Samson got many more Philistines after they had killed his wife and when he pushed the temple pillars down at the end of his life).  So even though Samson got a much higher Philistine total, it’s still interesting to compare the events.
