Samson was a Nazarite, a child given to God to fulfill a special purpose. However, Samson was often willful and hot-tempered and struggled to obey God's will. Tempted by a Philistine woman, named Delilah, he gives away the secret to his great strength — his long hair — and becomes weak and blind after he is shorn while sleeping and the Philistines attack him. He turns humbly to God, promising obedience once again, and with new God-endowed strength, he is able to defeat the Philistines.
