Samson – Warrior Judge
Commemorated on 7 April

O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.

The story of Sampson, Nazarite, Warrior, and the last Judge of Israel, begins in the 13th chapter of the Book of Judges. We must recall that it was God's will that Samson should triumph over evil. " But his father and his mother knew not that it was of the LORD, that he sought an occasion against the Philistines: for at that time the Philistines had dominion over Israel. [Jdg 14:4]
