Delilah: Languishing, a Philistine woman who dwelt in the valley of Sorek
(Judges 16:4-20) She was bribed by the "lords of the Philistines" to
obtain from Samson the secret of his strength and the means of
(Judges 16:4-18) She tried on three occasions to obtain
from him this secret in vain. On the fourth occasion she wrung it
from him. She made him sleep upon her knees, and then called the man
who was waiting to help her; who "cut off the seven locks of his
head," and so his "strength went from him."
