Family Connections—The Bible gives us no knowledge of her parentage and background save that she came from the valley of Sorek which extended from near Jerusalem to the Mediterranean, and which entrance was beautiful with rare flowers perfuming the air with sweet odors.

The record of Delilah, the heartless wrecker of a mighty man, is given in eighteen verses; and the description of Samson’s betrayal, fall, bondage and death is one of the most graphic in the Bible.

She remains as a warning to all men to beware of the charm and wiles of a wicked, scheming woman.

Therefore he must be got rid of, and in Delilah, the Philistine prostitute, the Philistines had one who was willing to be bribed to act as their agent.

She had one purpose and that was to secure money, and had no qualms of conscience to trifle with love for the sake of wealth.What hadst thou to do in Hell, When thou didst bower the spirit of a fiend In mortal Paradise of such sweet flesh.Deluding Samson into believing she really loved him, Delilah sold him to blindness, bondage and death.A lad brings the giant in and places him between the pillars of the heathen temple where all eyes could see him. They ask for a riddle and Samson acted one they did not expect.With his arms around the pillars, and deeply penitent for his sins, he prayed, “O Lord, remember me and give me strength only this once.”Then shaking himself as of old, he threw his arms around the pillars, the massive temple tottered and the 3,000 Philistines, including the treacherous Delilah perished.Recognizing that the truth had been told, Delilah lulled Samson to sleep.
