3 Gaza


5 The gates of Gaza


7 Gates carried to Hebron

9 Gaza Hebron 70 kms or 40 miles From here one can see clearly the issues facing us in the world

10 … …. Samson and Delilah

12 Grapes growing in the valley of Sorek


14 Delilah

15 Delilah

16 The secret of Samson’s strength

17 Samson’s fatal brinkmanship

18 Cat and mouse folly repeated

19 The point of no return

20 Woven in a web of deceit


22 Daily torture ends in death

23 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him. He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks; Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life. Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth. Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths. For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her. Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.

24 Capitulation – Covenant forsaken

25 Yahweh departs from Samson

26 Gaza revisited tragically

27 1.Destroyed Philistine crops – Now ends up grinding their grain. 2.Slew 1,000 with the jawbone of an ass – Now doing the work of an ass as a beast of burden. 3.Could not leave Philistine women alone – Now performs women’s work. Poetic outcomes are designed to turn men from folly, not just bring justice!
