A certain man of Zorah, named Manoah, from the clan of the Danites, had a wife who was childless, unable to give birth. The angel of the Lord appeared to her and said, You are barren and childless, but you are going to become pregnant and give birth to a son. Now see to it that you drink no wine or other fermented drink and that you do not eat anything unclean. You will become pregnant and have a son whose head is never to be touched by a razor because the boy is to be a Nazirite, dedicated to God from the womb. He will take the lead in delivering Israel from the hands of the Philistines
Judges 13:2-5, NIV

[So] The woman gave birth to a boy and named him Samson. He grew and the Lord blessed him, and the Spirit of the Lord began to stir him while he was in Mahaneh Dan, between Zorah and Eshtaol.
Judges 13:24-25, NIV

(His parents did not know that this was from the Lord,
who was seeking an occasion to confront the Philistines;
for at that time they were ruling over Israel.)
Judges 14:4, NIV

But the hair on his head began to grow again after it had been shaved
Judges 16:22, NIV
