The book of Judges chapter sixteen verse four

(Judges 16:4)
4 And it came to pass afterward, that he loved a woman in the valley of So’rek, whose name was Delilah.

Verse 1:
Samson fell in love with a woman named Delilah
First chance to burn him
She’ll throw him in the fire
Lords of the Philistines came up to her and said
Fool Samson
What is his power so we can have his head
Found out his secret
And we shall give you each
One thousand one hundred silver pieces
The next hour
Delilah said Samson what is your power
And with what can you be tied down to make you cower
He put her to the test
Said tie me down with seven still moist sinews that haven’t dried out yet
Then I’ll become like an ordinary man
The Philistines brought her the rope
She tied them around his hands
Set him up for ambush she cried
Philistines arrived
Samson tore his hand free ready to fight
Delilah said you speak to me in lies
Now tell me
Do please with what can you be tied

Hook:
Samson and Delilah
Beginning and the end of the strongest man
Samson and Delilah
Beginning and the end of the strongest man
Samson and Delilah
Beginning and the end of the strongest man
Samson and Delilah
Beginning and the end

Verse 2:
Delilah took new ropes tied them
Philistines are coming she said
He tore’em in two
From his arms like a thread
He lied a third time
She kept pressuring him, impatient
He finally told her his hearts secret
A razor has never come upon my head
I am a Nazarite of God from my mother’s belly he said
If I did get shaved my power will depart from me then
I will grow weak and become like all other men
She immediately seeked the Philistines
Proceeded to make Samson sleep upon her knees
As he dreamed
She had the men shave off his head
Philistines are upon you
He awoke then said
I shall make myself free
Began to slay men
But he did not know Jehovah’s energy departed from him
They grabbed him
Bore his eyes out kidnapped him
Brought him to Gaza
Bound him with two fetters of copper

Hook:
Samson and Delilah
Beginning and the end of the strongest man
Samson and Delilah
Beginning and the end of the strongest man
Samson and Delilah
Beginning and the end of the strongest man
Samson and Delilah
Beginning and the end

Verse 3:
Samson’s locked in the prison house
Meanwhile the hair of his head started to grow out
Lords of the Philistines gathered
To sacrifice to their god
And rejoice on Samson being captured
They prayed to their god and said
Our god has given us into our hand
Our enemy the devastator of our land
Their hearts were merry
Drunk off booze man
So they called for Samson that he may offer up amusement
Took him out of prison
Into the banquet of men and women
All the lords were there
Three thousand looked and stared
Stood between two pillars
Said to the boy holding his hand
Permit me to feel the pillars by which I stand
Sovereign Lord Jehovah
Remember me strengthen me
Just this once let me avenge myself upon the Philistines
Braced himself on the pillars
Right hand left hand
The house fell upon the Philistines
Put’em to death man
