Name in history and literature.Samson is one of the most romantic biblical characters. The angel announced to the future mother that she would give birth to a son who would be the winner of the Philistines. He also warned that Samson would never eat the juice of the vine or cut his hair, for his strength would be in his hair. Bible stories about Samson consist of several episodes, sometimes funny and touching, sometimes cruel and tragic. Fate, as if on purpose, experienced a hero, and it turned out that he fell in love with the Philistine. It was a beautiful woman named Delilah. She skillfully discovered the secret of his strength, and when he was sleeping, lulled by her caresses, the Philistines cut his hair and gouged out his eyes. Placed behind bars, Samson bitterly repented of all his sins, adventures and wild adventures. And, apparently, the sky still took pity on him. Hair began to grow quickly, and with them came the lost strength. Then one day, when a noisy and colorful event took place in Gaza, with bloody offerings in honor of the idol of Dagon, the nobility of the Philistines wished Samson to be brought to the temple. Samson, hiding the strength that had returned to him, obediently entered the temple and also humbly asked him to lead him to the columns. He wanted to show that he can not stand on his feet without support and support.Then the terrible happened: Samson shook the stone pillars with such force, which served as a support for the whole temple, that they collapsed along with the heavy vault and walls. Under the rubble of the colossal structure, as many Philistines perished as Samson would not have been able to destroy in his entire life.
