Samson   (Judges 16)

Meaning:
Strength.

Origin and Application:
In the Old Testament times, there is a strong man called Samson whose hair gave him the strength of a bull. Nobody knew where his strength comes from, until one day Delilah, his lover, betrayed him by telling his secret to his enemies, the Philistines. The Philistines put him to sleep at night and shaved off the seven braids of his hair. When his strength left him, his enemies gouged out his eyes, bound him with bronze shackles and sent him to prison. While in prison, his hair grew back and so did his power. Taking a revenge on the Philistines, he pulled their banquet hall down and died with the Philistines.
Samson's strength left a mark in history and his name now takes on various meanings. A Samson post is a strong post that supports a beam of the deck, or a movable pillar carrying a leading block. Samson's hair became the brand name of various hair replacement centres. Samson is a household name for a man with extraordinary physical strength.


Samson 力量之源(士師記13)


Picture description:Samson and Delilah
Picture copyright:Rembrandt van Rijn / public domain

Origin and Application:
在舊約時代,有個叫做參孫的大力士,他的頭髮給了他如公牛般力氣,但沒人知道這個氣力的真正來源。直到有一天,他的愛人黛利拉背叛他,把這個秘密告訴了娘家,同時也是參孫的敵人非利士人。於是,非利士人等到參孫熟睡時剃去他的七綹頭髮,使得他毫無力氣,並剜了他的雙眼,用銅鏈銬住她的手腳,把他送進牢中。這時,參孫的頭髮慢慢地長出來了,他也恢復了力氣。為了報復和雪恥,他摧毀了非利士人的宴會廳,與他的敵人同歸於盡。
參孫的力大無窮在歷史上留下了印記。「參孫的柱」(Samson post)意為「起重柱」,即支撐著甲板上的樑柱或運送導向塊的堅固柱子。「參孫的頭髮」(Samson's hair)則成為一些織發中心的品牌名稱。如果你說某某是參孫,你是在誇他力量非凡。
