: The oldest trick in the world. Silk trap, baited with a woman. Delilah
: You know a better bait, Samson? Men *always* respond.
[Samson has chosen Semadar over Delilah as his bride
: I hate him. Tubal
: Because he's a Danite? Delilah
: Because he's a fool! Tubal
: Most men are, Delilah. There's nothing you can do about it.
: [smiles craftily
] Sometimes a bee can move an ox.
: No man leaves Delilah.
: [holding Delilah and trading her for Semadar
] Look! Here! Samson. My other daughter. Take her. She'll make you a much better wife. She's fairer than Semadar, and much, much more beautiful. Samson
: You give me a turnip for a... Tubal
: Wait, wait Samson. This one is a queen among women. Samson, look. Look. Have you ever seen eyes like that? So full of love for you? See the whiteness of her skin, smooth as a young dove's. Oh she'll grow into a rare blossom. Samson
: She'll grow into a thornbush! Delilah
: [grasps Samson
] Did a thornbush steal the chariot that took you to the lion? Did a thornbush tell the Saran how you killed it with your bare hands? No, I did, and he believed me, then you chose Semadar. Samson
: Take your claws out of me! Delilah
: You'll never get them out of you. I made Ahtur steal the riddle's secret from Semadar. I lied to stop you from marrying her. I'll kill to keep you. You're the only thing in the world I want. Samson
: [to Tubal
] Hold this fork-tongued adder before I put a heel on her. Delilah
: If you crush the life out of me I'd kiss you with my dying breath! Samson
: [to Tubal
] And you want me to marry this wild cat?
: They're devils. Saran of Gaza
: No, they're very human. The weak always ban together to pull down the strong. Lord of Gath
: Your lion has become a mouse. Saran of Gaza
: Changed by the magic of love.
: [about Samson's riddle
] That scurvy riddle has no answer. Delilah
: Every riddle has an answer, only you are all to stupid to find it. Gammad
: Find it? Where? Delilah
: [pours wine into Gammad's cup
] Not in your wine cup, Gammad.
: The wine of parting is bitter, Samson. Samson
: Not as bitter as blood.
: [looking upon Samson in the gristmill, not knowing that he has been blinded
] He has not dared to look at me. Saran of Gaza
: He cannot see you. Delilah
: I'll make him see me.
[stands in front of Samson, slowly noticing his blinded eyes, which fill her with deep remorse
: He's blind. He can never see me again. Saran of Gaza
: Does that disturb you? Delilah
: I had your promise. Saran of Gaza
: No blade has touched his skin. No drop of his blood was shed. Delilah
] You... you played with words to rob him of his eyes. Saran of Gaza
: It was you who betrayed him, not I. Delilah
: He was captive, in chains, yet the Lord of the Five Cities could not show him mercy? Saran of Gaza
: Did you show him mercy, Delilah? You wanted vengeance. You have it.
Saran of Gaza
: Every cup of water, every morsel of food, must be guided into his hands. The mighty Samson, betrayed by a woman. Delilah
: No. Saran of Gaza
: Blinded, ridiculed, pitied. Delilah
: No, I did not blind him! Saran of Gaza
: [Delilah tries to go to Samson, but the Saran holds her back
] Are you going to be as big a fool as you've made of him? He'd kill you. You cannot undo what has been done.
: [being tormented by the Saran's words that she "cannot undo" her betrayal of Samson, his subsequent blinding, and his bondage of grinding grain in the gristmill
] I can! I can! Round and round, day after day, month after month. He never stops! I'm being crushed like the grain beneath the stone. This night must end sometime. O God of Samson, help me. He said you are everywhere. That you are almighty. Hear me. Give back the light to his eyes. Take my sight for his. O god of Samson... Help me.
: You love him. Women cannot deceive each other. It is in your face when you look at him. You want him for yourself. Miriam
: Yes, I love him. In his face, I see all that is strong and good. His name is like a cry of hope for us. I've dreamed that someday Samson would take me for his wife. But he's never looked upon me as a woman. Delilah
: His face... his name... shadows on the wall. You think that is love? You worship him with prayers and downcast eyes. I love him as a man of flesh and blood! Miriam
: He is not leaving you for me. There is a higher voice that speaks through him, and he will always answer its call. Even your treacherous beauty cannot turn him from it. Delilah
: I cannot fight against his god. But no woman will take him from me.
: [From afar, Delilah observes her home going up in flames
] Turn away, little mistress. Don't look anymore. All you have in the world is ashes and death. Delilah
: [turns around and sobs
] Samson lives. Hisham
: May his flesh rot from his bones. Delilah
: Be still, old fool. If it takes all my life, I'll make him curse the day he was born. Hisham
: He called you a fork-tongued adder. Delilah
: He's going to feel its sting. Hisham
: [holds Delilah's hand
] What strength can these hands have against him? Delilah
: Perhaps greater than a lion's and softer than a dove's. I'll find strength, Hisham. Strength to destroy him!
: This Samson has some unknown power, some secret that gives him superhuman strength. No man can stand against him. Delilah
: Perhaps he'll fall before a woman. Even Samson's strength must have a weakness. There isn't a man in the world who would not share his secrets with some woman.
: Delilah... Delilah
: No, I will not listen. Samson
: But you asked me to... Delilah
: I don't want to hear you. Samson
: Three times you plagued me to tell you. Delilah
: And three times you've lied to me. You said new ropes that had never been used would hold you. Samson
: Who knows the strength of a rope that's never been used? Delilah
: Then you told me your strength would go if I wove your hair to the web of my loom. Now look at my loom. Samson
: I'd rather look at you. Delilah
: It's no use, Samson. You'll always find a new trick to deceive me. The night I came to the Valley of Sorek, you wanted to send me away. You were right. It is better that I go.
