A native of Zorah, in the tribe of Dan, and the father of Samson, Judges 13:14; 16:31 . In the prediction of his son's birth and achievements, we see the Angel of the covenant, who appeared to Abraham, Gideon, etc., and who never slumbers nor sleeps, caring for his oppressed people. So, too, he appeared to Jacob, and would not tell his mysterious name, Genesis 32:29; Judges 13:18; Isaiah 9:6; Luke 13:34 .
