The seventh of the Judges, he judged the Israelites for twenty years (951-931 BCE). A nazirite from birth and of legendary strength, he single-handedly terrorized the occupying Philistines, once killing one thousand of them with a donkey’s jawbone. Samson’s Philistine wife, Delilah, persuaded him to reveal to her the source of his great strength—his never-cut hair. She revealed the secret to the Philistines, who cut his hair and incarcerated him. At a pagan festival, Samson knocked down the pillars supporting the building, killing himself and thousands of Philistines.
