Bible: Judges 16:18-21
16:18 When Delilah saw that he had told her his secret, 1 she sent for 2 the rulers of the Philistines, saying, “Come up here again, for he has told me 3 his secret.” 4 So the rulers of the Philistines went up to visit her, bringing the silver in their hands. 16:19 She made him go to sleep on her lap 5 and then called a man in to shave off 6 the seven braids of his hair. 7 She made him vulnerable 8 and his strength left him. 16:20 She said, “The Philistines are here, 9 Samson!” He woke up 10 and thought, 11 “I will do as I did before 12 and shake myself free.” But he did not realize that the
Lord had left him. 16:21 The Philistines captured him and gouged out his eyes. They brought him down to Gaza and bound him in bronze chains. He became a grinder in the prison.
