Samson

Synopsis: A Hebrew with an unusual gift of strength must respond properly to the call of God on his life in order to lead his people out of enslavement. After his youthful ambition leads to a tragic marriage, his acts of revenge thrust him into direct conflict with the Philistine army. As his brother mounts a tribal rebellion, only Samson's relationship with a Philistine temptress and his final surrender - both to the Philistines and to God - turns imprisonment and blindness into final victory.

[man narrating]

Four hundred years ago,

God delivered us

to this Promised Land.

But as the years passed,

many of our tribes forgot

and turned their backs to God.

When the Philistines came,

they found us weak, divided,

and they enslaved our people.

Our only hope was a prophecy

that a man would be born,

one who would rise up

and set our people free.

[man] O Great Dagon,

lord of battles,

bestower of wealth

and bountiful harvests,

look upon your people,

the Philistines of Gaza.

[cheering]

We are gathered here

at your feet

to bring you gifts gathered

by the hands of the Hebrews

- who gave unto us...

- Move. Move.

to conquer and command!

Look how easily the Hebrews

forsake their god

and serve Dagon.

They grew this food...

[continues, indistinct]

[exhales]

[scraping]

[whispering]

Throw away the outside.

Cook the inside,

then eat the outside.

What is it?

What approaches with a stalk

but has ears that cannot hear?

That riddle's almost as bad

as this plan, Brother.

[chuckles]

[soldier] Move along!

What has flesh but no blood

and a heart made of stone?

You talking about

the olives or Father?

[officer]

Hey! Hebrew!

What are you

doing back there?

I'm, uh...

I'm waiting for my master.

He prays in the temple.

[whispering]

Samson, what's happening?

[officer] Then why do

you hide your face?

Remove your hood.

[whispering]

Hey, Brother.

[officer]

Hebrew, show yourself.

[whispering] Samson,

what's happening there?

Brother.

[soldier]

I know him.

That's Samson, the Hebrew

strongman from the pits.

Be very careful.

You're coming with us. We'll find your

master, see if you're telling the truth.

Of course.

- [clanking]

- Why would I resist?

Aah!

[chuckles]

[Brother] Samson!

Samson!

[guard] Thieves!

Thieves in the temple!

The harder to catch,

the faster I run.

- What am I?

- Too easy.

Your breath.

The eyes of Dagon

see you for what you are.

You shall not escape

his wrath.

He will crush you

and all who defy him.

- This way!

- Don't let them escape.

Stop him, you fool!

[clamoring]

- [laughs]

- No!

[priest] No!

No!

[bell tolling]

Come. This way.

[laughs]

Come back here!

[together]

This way to the gate.

[together] Where are you going?

It's this way.

Thieves!

- [soldier] Thieves!

- [soldier 2] Split up!

There they go!

There's nowhere

to run, Hebrew!

[yells]

- Morning, ladies.

- [women giggle]

- What do we have here?

- [soldier] There he is!

Thief!

I'll be right back.

This should only take a moment.

Come on!

- Come back here. Come back here.

- [giggles]

[laughing]

Oh!

What happened to you?

Let's never

speak of this.

- [soldier] There! There he is!

- Go!

- Come back here.

- This way, Brother.

- [laughing]

- [soldier] Thieves! Come back!

[soldier] Hebrews!

If this month's tribute

falls short,

next month's will be double!

[screams]

Get out!

I know you have more!

[shouts] Where is it?

No. Stop.

- Where's Samson?

- He will be here.

Please.

Show mercy, my lord.

And what form

should my mercy take?

The tribute,

it is too much, my lord.

We starve while our wheat

grows mold in your barns.

Can you not spare us

a little more, my lord?

What is your name, Hebrew?

My name is Tobias, my lord.

Tobias.

I, Prince Rallah,

have heard this man's cry.

And as commander

of the Philistine army...

I declare henceforth

this man shall

never hunger again.

- Aah!

- [gasps]

[cries out]

[Tobias groans]

[gasping]

[cries out]

[body thuds]

Does anyone else desire mercy?

[woman sobbing]

[sobbing continues]

Back to work.

Back to work!
