A-Z: General definitions: Samson


In the Old Testament he was the last of the major judges (who ruled Israel); in about 1100 B.C. He was a Nazarite with great strength as long as his hair remained long. Samson told his Philistine lover, Delilah, the secret of his strength and she cut his hair. He was captured and blinded by the Philistines. When Samson's hair grew back he pulled down the Philistine temple, killing himself and his oppressors (Judges 16:30).
