Judge of Israel (Judges 13-16). Before his birth an angel predicted that he should be the deliverer of Israel and commanded that his hair should not be cut. He showed his superhuman strength by slaying a lion with his bare hands, by killing a thousand Philistines with the jawbone of an ass, and by carrying off the gates of Gaza. His hair was cut off by Dalila, his paramour, and he fell into the hands of the Philistines, who blinded him. On the feast of the god Dagon he pulled down the pillars of a great edifice and perished in the ruins with the Philistines.
