In Judges why was Samson's strength said to be in his hair
So he told her all that was in his heart and said to her, ďA razor has never come on my head, for I have been a Nazirite to God from my motherís womb. If I am shaved, then my strength will leave me and I will become weak and be like any other man.Ē
I understand that it represented a commitment to God but he didnt break the commitment, he just got his head shaved while he slept. I also read that "The ancient Hebrews believed that a manís strength was in his hair. One of the reasons they thought this was because they had observed that when a person dies, the hair appeared to continued to grow for some time. Today we know that this is an optical illusion. But this is one of the reasons the Hebrew Nazarites did not shave. The hair was symbolic of divine strength, a sacred token and reminder that the Nazarite was dedicated to God."
So is it possible it was just assumed his strength was because of his hair?
