Summary

Last of the major Judges of Israel, a son of the tribe of Dan, consecrated before birth with the Nazirite vow, a legendary hero of remarkable strength – Samson was as weak in the flesh as he was strong in muscle. This weakness cost him his dignity and his eyesight. He never fully freed Dan from the dominion of the Philistines, which set the stage for the moral collapse to come.
