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.
