We'll each pay you 1,100 silver coins." 6 So Delilah asked Samson, "Please tell me the secret to your great strength and how you may be tied up and tortured." 7 Samson replied, "If I'm tied up with seven green cords that have never been dried out, then I'll become weak and just like any other human being."
