Samson (Judges 16)

Picture description:
Samson and Delilah
Picture copyright: Rembrandt van Rijn / public domain
Bible Verse:
Origin and Application:
In the Old Testament times, there is a strong man called Samson whose hair gave him the strength of a bull. Nobody knew where his strength comes from, until one day Delilah, his lover, betrayed him by telling his secret to his enemies, the Philistines. The Philistines put him to sleep at night and shaved off the seven braids of his hair. When his strength left him, his enemies gouged out his eyes, bound him with bronze shackles and sent him to prison. While in prison, his hair grew back and so did his power. Taking a revenge on the Philistines, he pulled their banquet hall down and died with the Philistines. Samson’s strength left a mark in history and his name now takes on various meanings. A Samson post is a strong post that supports a beam of the deck, or a movable pillar carrying a leading block. Samson’s hair became the brand name of various hair replacement centres. Samson is a household name for a man with extraordinary physical strength.
