Samson was blessed by God with great strength. Throughout his life Samson was a Nasarite, a person concentrated to God. As a Nasarite, Samson was supposed to keep special promises, or vows. He was not to drink wine or strong drink, touch anyone or anything that had died, or cut or shave his hair. The spirit of the Lord was with Samson. And as long as Samson kept his vows God continued to make him stronger.
