6 So Delilah said to Samson, “Please tell me where your great strength lies, and how you might be bound, that one could dsubdue you.”
7 Samson said to her, “If they bind me with seven fresh bowstrings that have not been dried, ethen I shall become weak and be like any other man.” 8 Then the lords of the Philistines brought up to her seven fresh bowstrings that had not been dried, and she bound him with them. 9 Now she had men lying in ambush in an inner chamber. And she said to him, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” But he snapped the bowstrings, as a thread of flax snaps when it touches the fire. So the secret of his strength was not known.
