Some time later he fell in love with a woman in the Valley of Sorek (Grapes). Her name was Delilah. The Philistine tyrants approached her and said, “Seduce him. Discover what’s behind his great strength and how we can tie him up and humble him. Each man’s company will give you a hundred shekels of silver.”
So Delilah said to Samson, “Tell me, dear, the secret of your great strength, and how you can be tied up and humbled.” — Judges 16:4-6 <The Message>
Samson and Delilah Summary
Samson’s faith made him the strongest man alive. He destroyed an entire army with a jawbone of a donkey and carried off the gates of a fortified city with his bare hands. But all his strength made him powerless to see through the lies of Delilah.
Samson could have been an wonderful story of victory through faith. Instead, its a story of wasted potential. There is a lot to learn from Samson. Maybe that is why his story has so fascinated countless generations who have studied his life.
Then Samson prayed to the LORD, “Sovereign LORD, remember me. Please, God, strengthen me just once more, and let me with one blow get revenge on the Philistines for my two eyes.” Then Samson reached toward the two central pillars on which the temple stood. Bracing himself against them, his right hand on the one and his left hand on the other, Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” Then he pushed with all his might, and down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more when he died than while he lived. — Judges 16:28-30 <NIV>
