Who Was Delilah?

The Bible mentions Delilah as a woman of the valley of Sorek who Samson loved very much. The Philistines paid her a large sum of money to deceive Samson and entice him into revealing the secret of his great strength. After several attempts she finally discovered his secret. It was the length of his hair because of a vow that was made to God. When Samson went to sleep she had his head shaved and turned him over to the Philistines. They gouged out his eyes, threw him in prison, and later humiliated him.
