After Samson's wife and family were murdered, the Samson Story continues with Samson avenging their deaths. Later he killed 1000 Philistines using only the jawbone of an ass. Samson was thirsty after this battle, and when he prayed to God for water, a well sprang up and Samson became strong again.
Once, when Samson was visiting the city of Gaza, the Philistines shut him in the city, intending to kill him in the morning, but at midnight he went out and tore away the gates, with the posts and bar, and carried them to the top of a hill looking toward Hebron.
Because of Delilah's betrayal of Samson, he was eventually captured by the Philistines. They put out Samson's eyes and led him down to Gaza, bound in fetters, and made him grind in the prison.
