Who was Samson ? Strongest man ever !
Book of Judges
The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head. Jeremiah ,24 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: …. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one. Proverbs The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness. New International Version The glory of young men is their strength, gray hair the splendor of the old. New Living Translation The glory of the young is their strength; the gray hair of experience is the splendor of the old. English Standard Version The glory of young men is their strength, but the splendor of old men is their gray hair.
What does the Bible say about? They shall not shave their heads or let their locks grow long; they shall surely trim the hair of their heads. They shall not make bald patches on their heads, nor shave off the edges of their beards, nor make any cuts on their body. He shall drink no vinegar made from wine or strong drink and shall not drink any juice of grapes or eat grapes, fresh or dried. All the days of his separation he shall eat nothing that is produced by the grapevine, not even the seeds or the skins. Until the time is completed for which he separates himself to the Lord , he shall be holy. He shall let the locks of hair of his head grow long.
The Story of Samson, the Strong Man. Their names were Ibzan, Elon, and Abdon. None of these were men of war, and in their days the land was quiet. But the people of Israel again began to worship idols; and as a punishment God allowed them once more to pass under the power of their enemies. The seventh oppression, which now fell upon Israel, was by far the hardest, the longest and the most widely spread of any, for it was over all the tribes. It came from the Philistines, a strong and warlike people who lived on the west of Israel upon the plain beside the Great Sea. They worshipped an idol called Dagon, which was made in the form of a fish's head on a man's body.
Did Samson receive his strength strictly from his hair?

He is sometimes considered to be an Israelite version of the popular Near Eastern folk hero also embodied by the Sumerian Enkidu and the Greek Heracles. The biblical account states that Samson was a Nazirite , and that he was given immense strength to aid him against his enemies and allow him to perform superhuman feats,  including slaying a lion with his bare hands and massacring an entire army of Philistines using only the jawbone of a donkey. However, if Samson's long hair was cut, then his Nazirite vow would be violated and he would lose his strength. Samson was betrayed by his lover Delilah , who ordered a servant to cut his hair while he was sleeping and turned him over to his Philistine enemies, who gouged out his eyes and forced him to grind grain in a mill at Gaza. Whilst there his hair began to regrow.
