Judges 16:7 CPDV

5  And the leaders of the Philistines went to her, and they said: 'Deceive him, and learn from him wherein lies his great strength, and how we may be able to overcome him and to impose restraints on him. And if you will do this, each one of us will give you one thousand one hundred silver coins.'

6  Therefore, Delilah said to Samson, 'Tell me, I beg you, wherein lies your very great strength, and with what might you be bound, so that you could not break free?'

7  And Samson answered her, 'If I will be bound with seven cords, made of sinews not yet dry, but still damp, I will be weak like other men.'

8  And the princes of the Philistines brought to her seven cords, such as he had described. And she bound him with these.

9  And so, those hiding in ambush with her, in the bedroom, were expecting the end of the matter. And she cried out to him, 'The Philistines are upon you, Samson!' And he broke the cords, as one would break a thread of flax, twisted for cutting and singed by fire. And so it was not known wherein lay his strength.
