Size 3 feet 6 inches by 5 feet. "And when Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lords of the Philistines, saying, Come up at once; for he hath showed me all his heart. Then the lords of the Philistines came up with her, and brought money in their hand. And she made him sleep upon her knees, and she sent for a man, and she caused him to shave off the very locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him. And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. But he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out, like other times before, and shake myself. And he saw that the Lord was departed from him."--Deut. chap. xvi. ver. 18, 19, 20. [P. 25.]
