son of Manoah, of the tribe of Dan, Judges 13:2 , &c. We are no where acquainted with the name of his mother. He was born A.M. 2849, and was a Nazarite from his infancy, by the divine command. He was brought up in a place called the camp of Dan, between Zorah and Estaol, Judges 13:25 . His extraordinary achievements are particularly recorded in Judges 14-16. "Faith" is attributed to him by St. Paul, though whether he retained it to the end of his life may be doubted. He is not inaptly called by an old writer, "a rough believer."
