• Samson was an Israelite who was chosen to be a Nazirite from birth

• Samson was an Israelite who was chosen to be a Nazirite from birth. Samson had a gift of physical strength. Samson slayed 1,000 Philistines with the jawbone of an animal. Samson was attracted to Philistine women: the first being the Philistine woman of Timnah who he attempted to marry and was later given to Samson’s best man, second in Gaza who was a prostitute, and lastly Delilah from Valley of Sorek who would eventually betray him. Samson would call out to God just one last time for his strength and killed 3,000 men and women while he was “entertaining” the Philistines. Samson was a biblical judge in Israel for twenty years. In the end Samson broke all three of the Nazirite vows: 1-do not touch or eat anything “unclean” and Samson ate honey out of the carcass of a lion and touched a donkey jawbone when slaying 1,000 men, 2- do not drink wine or other fermented drink and Samson participated in a drinking fest, 3-do not cut your hair and Samson’s head was shaved.
