Don't trust women!


I wonder, even though Samson had sinned greatly did the re-growth of his hair ( V 22 But the hair on his head began to grow again after it had been shaved )..... signify that God had not left him.
Heb 13:5 I will never leave you nor forsake you.


I read the NKJV version of this chapter. It says that three times Samson lied to Delilah about his weakness, and each time, the philistines knew about it because Delilah told them. If Samson was smart, wouldn't he realize that she was telling them and therefore decide not to tell her because she was tricking him? I guess you'll do crazy things for love...?
Thanks so much for these summaries! You are doing a great job! Keep up the good work.
