Name Notes: Named for the wife of Samson as described in the Hebrew Book of Judges, chapter 16. Delilah was approached by the Philistines, the enemies of Israel, to discover the secret of Samson's strength. Three times she asked Samson for the secret of his strength, and three times he gave her a false answer. On the fourth occasion he gave her the true reason: that he did not cut his hair in fulfillment of a vow to God; and Delilah betrayed him to his enemies, the Philistines.
