Judges 16:5-7 Modern English Version (MEV)

The Philistine rulers came up to her and said, “Trick him! Find out about how his strength is so great and how we can overcome him, bind him, and humiliate him. Each one of us will give you eleven hundred silver coins.[a]

So Delilah said to Samson, “Please tell me how your strength is so great and how you could be bound in order to be subdued.”

Samson said to her, “If they bind me with seven fresh bowstrings that have not been dried, then I will become weak and be like an ordinary man.”
