  Samson
Samson’s birth was predicted to the barren wife of Manoah, by an angel of God who at the same time instructed her as to the nature of his upbringing and work.
The family of Samson belonged to the tribe of Dan and lived at Zorah (v 2) in the Shephelah (Palestine Under Joshua and the Judges), not far from the territory of the Philistines, hence probably felt the brunt of Philistine oppressive rule.
Samson’s recorded acts may be divided into 5 episodes, but it should be remembered that neither his whole life nor all his performances of heroism are recorded in the Bible (see Jgs 13:25).

 Samson - God's Triumphant Man of Valor
Samson then brought some of the honey to his parents as a token of his generosity.(14:9) This act represented the sweet gift that he would give to his family, to his immediate and the larger family of Israel, by his conquering deliverance for them.
Samson had his faith in his commission to God further tested when he met the surprise that his “wife was given to his companion, whom he had used as his friend.”(14:20) Her father thought that he “hadst utterly hated her”, and instead offered her younger sister with the superficial enticement that she was fairer.
Through all of his battles with the Philistines, Samson glorified God as one who was known to be empowered by the Holy Spirit(as a Nazarite), and became a shining, heroic, triumphant executor of the vengeance and judgment of God for his generation, and a magnificent example of courageous faith to those that followed.

Samson Agonistes (Greek: "Samson the agonist") is a work of blank verse tragedy by John Milton.
Samson Agonistes is the conversation of a man forced to labor in pain while in captivity as the result of his own foolishness.
