Delilah said to Samson, “Until now you have mocked me and told me lies. Tell me with what you might be bound.”

He said to her, “If you weave the seven braids of my head into the web on the loom.” Bible see other translations

“the seven braids of my head.” Delilah is being persistent, and Samson is weakening in his resolve, and getting closer to the real source of his strength. He is toying with the Devil and beginning to lose the battle. He was not wise, and it is costing him. Eventually, it will cost him his life.

“in the web.” That is, in the web of fabric in the loom.

Commentary for: Judges 16:13
