BEFORE THE DAWN OF HISTORY,

EVER SINCE THE FIRST MAN

DISCOVERED HIS SOUL,

HE HAS STRUGGLED

AGAINST THE FORCES

THAT SOUGHT TO ENSLAVE HIM.

HE SAW THE AWFUL POWER OF

NATURE ARRAYED AGAINST HIM --

THE EVIL EYE OF THE LIGHTNING,

THE TERRIFYING VOICE

OF THE THUNDER,

THE SHRIEKING,

WIND-FILLED DARKNESS

ENSLAVING HIS MIND

WITH SHACKLES OF FEAR.

FEAR BRED SUPERSTITION,

BLINDING HIS REASON.

HE WAS RIDDEN:

BY A HOST OF DEVIL GODS.

HUMAN DIGNITY PERISHED

ON THE ALTAR OF IDOLATRY.

AND TYRANNY AROSE,

GRINDING THE HUMAN SPIRI BENEATH THE CONQUEROR'S HEEL.

BUT DEEP IN MAN'S HEAR STILL BURNED THE UNQUENCHABLE

WILL FOR FREEDOM.

WHEN THIS DIVINE SPARK FLAMES

IN THE SOUL OF SOME MORTAL...

WHETHER PRIEST OR SOLDIER,

ARTIST OR PATRIOT,

LOVER OR STATESMAN...

HIS DEEDS HAVE CHANGED

THE COURSE OF HUMAN EVENTS,

AND HIS NAME SURVIVES THE AGES.

IN THE VILLAGE OF ZORAH,

IN THE LAND OF DAN,

1,000 YEARS

BEFORE THE BIRTH OF CHRIST,

LIVED SUCH A MAN.

IN HIM, THE ELEMENTS HAD FUSED

GREATNESS AND WEAKNESS,

STRENGTH AND FOLLY.

BUT WITH THESE:

WAS A BOLD DREAM --

LIBERTY FOR HIS NATION.

THE MAN'S NAME WAS SAMSON.

FOR 40 YEARS, THE PHILISTINES

HAD HELD HIS PEOPLE IN BONDAGE.

^^ I DROVE THREE SCORE GOATS

TO ZORAH ^^

^^ SEEKING FOR A WIFE ^^

^^ BUT HER FATHER SAID

GET MORE ^^

^^ OR YOU'LL LEAD

A LONELY LIFE ^^

POMEGRANATES.

AND HE SAID,

"WHEN YOU RETURN TO EGYPT,

SEE THAT YOU DO ALL THE WONDERS

WHICH I HAVE PUT IN YOUR HAND."

AND THE LORD SAID

UNTO MOSES,

"GET YOU UP UNTO PHARAOH

AND BRING FORTH MY PEOPLE

OUT OF:

EGYPT."

PHARAOH:

RULED THE EGYPTIANS

AS THE SARAN RULES

THE PHILISTINES HERE.

AND THE PHILISTINES

RULE US.

SAUL, LET HIM TELL IT.

PHARAOH SAID TO MOSES,

"WHO IS THIS LORD?

I KNOW HIM NOT.

YOUR PEOPLE ARE MY SLAVES,

AND I WILL NOT LET THEM GO."

BUT THEY GOT AWAY

THROUGH THE RED SEA.

AND SOMEDAY,

WE'LL SHOW THE SARAN

THAT STONES CAN FLY JUST AS

STRAIGHT AS PHILISTINE SPEARS.

Boy:
SAUL, TELL HIM WHA THAT SLINGSHOT'S FOR.

YES, TELL HIM.

GUARD YOUR TONGUE, SAUL.

SOME THOUGHTS:

MUST NOT BE SPOKEN.

MAY I FILL MY PITCHER,

MIRIAM?

WE'LL FILL IT TOGETHER,

LITTLE SAMARITAN.

Man:
AND THE LORD SPOKE

UNTO MOSES AND TO AARON,

SAYING, "WHEN PHARAOH

SHALL SAY UNTO:

YOU,

"'SHOW A MIRACLE FOR YOU,'

THEN YOU SHALL --"

YOU SHALL SWALLOW

YOUR TONGUE, OLD GOAT.

NOW, HERE'S SOMETHING

FOR YOU TO LEARN --

BOW WHEN A PHILISTINE

PASSES!

WE ARE A CONQUERED PEOPLE.

WE BOW:

ONLY TO THE INVISIBLE LORD.

EVERY PHILISTINE

IS YOUR LORD.

BOW!

LOOK, YOU SCUM OF DAN,

HERE'S HOW TO GREE YOUR MASTERS.

BRAVE PHILISTINES --

SHOWING YOUR COURAGE

AGAINST CHILDREN AND OLD MEN.

WELL...

HERE'S A JUG OF DANITE WINE

WE HAVEN'T TASTED.

IF YOU COME:

NEAR MIRIAM,

SAMSON WILL CRACK YOUR HEAD

LIKE A WALNUT.

SAMSON?!

[ LAUGHTER ]

HE SAVES HIS STRENGTH

FOR THE WENCHES!

[ LAUGHTER ]

THE POWER OF THE LORD

IS IN SAMSON'S

ARM,

AND ONE DAY,

YOU SHALL FEEL IT.

CROAK IN THE MUD,

OLD FROG.

[ LAUGHTER ]

RUN, RUN!

GET OFF THE STREET!

LET THE OLD MUD TURTLE

YELL FOR SAMSON!

GO ON, SAUL,

THROW.

AIM:

FOR THE BIG ONE.

NO, SAUL! NO.

I'LL STOP

ONE OF THEM.

YOU WILL BRING DEATH

TO THE VILLAGE.

SAMSON:

IS OUR WARRIOR.

Woman:

A LEADER -- YOU?

HMPH.

CERTAINLY,

I KNOW WHERE YOU WERE.

LESH LAKISH TOLD ME.

YOU WERE BRAWLING

THROUGH THE STREETS OF TIMNATH

WITH THE PHILISTINES,

DRINKING AND DICE-THROWING

WITH OUR ENEMIES.

I WAS LEARNING:

THEIR WAYS.

YOU'D DO BETTER TO LEARN

THE WAYS OF THE LORD.

MMM! YOU'RE THE BEST COOK

IN ZORAH, LITTLE

MOTHER.

AND YOU'RE THE WORST SON.

YOU, THE LEADER OF DAN,
