Judges 16:17Wrench

BACK NEXT

So SunRay spills his whole heart to Delilah {Dry-Heart}.
He says, โ€œNever once has a razor touched my head.
I've been a Nazir {Holy-Man}, [dedicated] to Elohim [since I came] from my mother's womb.
If I get shaved, my strength flees from me.
I'll fall weak, like any other [son of] Adam.โ€
