Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 16:19

_ _ she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head — It is uncertain, however, whether the ancient Hebrews cut off the hair to the same extent as Orientals now. The word employed is sometimes the same as that for shearing sheep, and therefore the instrument might be only scissors.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 16:18-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 16:19

Sleep — By some sleepy potion. Knees — Resting his head upon her knees. To weaken or hurt, tho' he felt it not.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Judges 16:19

And she made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went (k) from him.

(k) Not for the loss of his hair, but for the contempt of the ordinance of God, which was the reason God departed from him.
