I heard some Israelites saying samson had dreadlocks and I hear the rastas supporting this claim as well. Was this in fact the case regarding the locks of samson?

When reading the scriptural term "locks" alone, we cannot assume this is referring to what is known today as "DREADLOCKS" Heres a definition of of the word "lock" in reference to hair.

Oxford American Dictionary
Lock-noun
a piece of a person's hair that coils or hangs together : she pushed back a lock of hair.
• ( locks) chiefly poetic/literary a person's hair : flowing locks and a long white beard.
• a tuft of wool or cotton.
• ( locks) short for dreadlocks .

The true definition would be "a piece of a persons hair that coils or hangs together". The term "dreadlock" came much later during the Rastafarian movement. We can get a better understanding when we go into the scriptures. Since Samson was a nazarite, we can get a description of what a nazarite's hair was supposed to look like.

Numbers 6:2
"Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD:"

Num. 6:5 "All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow."

We must examine the word "lock" in a hebrew Lexicon for better understanding.
Locks:
6544. oArÚDp para{, paw-rah´; a primitive root; to loosen; by implication, to expose, dismiss; figuratively, absolve, begin:—avenge, avoid, bare, go back, let, (make) naked, set at nought, perish, refuse, uncover.
6545. oArÚRp pera{, peh´-rah; from 6544; the hair (as dishevelled):—locks.

Lets examine the word disheveled.
disheveled |diˈ sh evəld| ( Brit. dishevelled)
adjective
(of a person's hair, clothes, or appearance) untidy; disordered : a man with long, disheveled hair.

Nazarites are commanded to let their hair grow without any trimming or maintenance that requires a razor hence the hebrew definitions...expose, loosen, uncover, bare. Their hair was to grow freely and unaltered, that is with a razor. But were these dreadlocks where the hair grows freely and becomes matted together and eventually permanently entangled? Seeing a real "dreadlock" can only be washed from the outside, (the hair within the dread is not accessible) the hair inside the "dread" becomes unhealthy and dies. At the end of a Nazarites vow, he/she is required to bring their new growth of hair and offer it unto the Lord. Seeing the Lord requires his offerings to be unblemished, why would the Lord desire a wad or wads of dead, and unhealthy hair? Lets check Samson himself.

Judg. 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 from him.

Lets examine this definition of locks for a more meticulous description

4253. jDpDlVjAm machlaphah, makh-law-faw´; from 2498; a ringlet of hair (as gliding over each other):—lock.

Lets look at the hebrew definition for 2498
2498. PAlDj chalaph, khaw-laf´; a primitive root; properly, to slide by, i.e. (by implication) to hasten away, pass on, spring up, pierce or change:—abolish, alter, change, cut off, go on forward, grow up, be over, pass (away, on, through), renew, sprout, strike through.

Interestingly we see that Samson's locks/hair were described to GLIDE OVER EACH OTHER or STRIKE THROUGH each other. This is called a braid (cornrows, frenchbraid, braided ponytail etc...)

Samson is even more descriptive with this process of hairstyle

Judg. 16:13 "And Delilah said unto Samson, Hitherto thou hast mocked me, and told me lies: tell me wherewith thou mightest be bound. And he said unto her, If thou weavest the seven locks of my head with the web."

To weave is to intertwine

707. gArDa}arag, aw-rag´; a primitive root; to plait or weave:—weaver(-r).

Lets get a definition of PLAIT and WEAVE

plait |plāt; plat|
noun
a single length of hair or other flexible material made up of three or more interlaced strands; a braid.

weave 1 |wēv|
verb ( past wove |wōv|; past part. woven |ˈwōvən|or wove) [ trans. ]
form (fabric or a fabric item) by interlacing long threads passing in one direction with others at a right angle to them

Lets examine the tool called the WEB mentioned in Judges 16:13

5259. JKAsÎn nacçak, naw-sak´; a primitive root (probably identical with 5258 through the idea of fusion); to interweave, i.e. (figuratively) to overspread:—that is spread.

braid |brād|
noun
1 threads of silk, cotton, or other material woven into a decorative band for edging or trimming garments : a coat trimmed with gold braid | fancy braids.
2 a length of hair made up of three or more interlaced strands : women with long black braids.
• a length made up of three or more interlaced strands of any flexible material : a flexible copper braid | braids of garlic.

So it is Crystal clear that Samsons long hair was braided in to seven separate braids and not dreadlocks. Samson then told Delilah to braid his seven locks/braids into one lock/braid. A real dreadlock cannot be unraveled or untwined as Samson suggested, They must be cut off. However braids can be woven and unwoven at will and properly washed and maintained. Men and women that wear "individual braids" make no mistake, these ARE NOT dreadlocks. However if braids go unmanaged they will turn into dreadlocks. Think about it the only way hair is able to dread is when it goes without FULL grooming. THIS WAS NOT A STYLE in ISRAEL.

2Sam. 19:24 ¶ "And Mephibosheth the son of Saul came down to meet the king, and had neither dressed his feet, nor trimmed his beard, nor washed his clothes, from the day the king departed until the day he came again in peace."

Mephibosheth slipped into depression and was afraid that David would have disdain for him because he was of the house of Saul who persecuted David. Therefore Mephibosheth did not groom himself nor TRIMMED HIS BEARD or bathed until David made peace with him. This clearly shows that a lack of grooming and a lack of cleanliness was not common among Israelites. Also men kept their beards tidy and neatly trimmed (NOT SHAVED) at any length. If a man went years without grooming his beard, at some point it will dread. Therefore this custom of dreading is not present in Israel, but check the African culture and you will find it vibrantly present there. Because the Rastafarians associate themselves with Haile Selassie, an Ethipoian, they also embrace the customs and traditions of Africa. This is where the dreading of the hair was predominately practiced. But Haile Salassie bogusly claimed lineage to King Solomon therefore the Law of a Nazarite is embraced. But the Rastas don't follow the entire Nazarite covenant ie: Abstaining from liquor or wine and WEEDSMOKE! And if all Nazarites wore dreadlocks, how would a man that only vowed himself a Nazarite for a month give his hair time to dread?

Truenation the scripture you used in Judges 16 seem to say that samson had seven strands or locks of hair that were braided together. This style is not uncommon. I have seen many brothers today braid up their dreads. the rappers Busta Rhymes and lil wayne do this. Can it be possible that samson did this?

TheEclectic, your statement would be accurate if the seven "LOCKS" were indeed dreadlocks. Re-examine my previous response to see that EACH of Samson's seven "locks" were said to intertwine each other. So in essence these were seven separate braids or "locks". I have included some images to display the difference of dreads and locks/braids that intertwine.

Israelites going into Assyrian captivity.

Nations with locks/braids

Modern Braids




Dreadlocks that require no weaving or intertwining



Remember many so-called negroes think they are African descendants and therefore they strongly clutch Afro-centric ways and other nations have followed suite. Baldheads, goatees (beards), tatoos etc... maybe the style and trend of today but that does not make them lawful or should be supported.

Shalam and getting straight to the point!


James 3:2
For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.

I disagree with these statements made by TN and they read as followed "but that does not make them lawful or should be supported" and "Think about it the only way hair is able to dread is when it goes without FULL grooming. THIS WAS NOT A STYLE in ISRAEL."

This is opinionated and not scriptural!

Song of Solomon 5:11
His head is as the most fine gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven.

How is it that the Riches and Wisest King on the Earth had bushy Braids as you would say NT? It would seem a little unkept wouldn't you think?

Brotha TN, your suggesting that to wear locks is unlawful; therefore sin!
what scripture is that? What law would this be breaking?

Romans 5:13
(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

1 John 3:4
Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

We must be very careful when we say that a person is not walking in accordance to the laws of the Most High because then we are commanded to show them their faults or else our own lives will be in jeopardy. This is how we show one form of love ( The keeping of the commandments)through correction.

1 Thessalonians 5:21
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good

Isaiah 58:1
Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins

Ezekiel 3:18
When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

The Most High Is a Master Mind and is very clear in what he is saying pertaining to his laws!

2 Esdras 7:21         For God hath given strait commandment to such as came, what they should do to live, even as they came, and what they should observe to avoid punishment.

The Most High is very precise if he says locs; He means Locs and when he says plait or braid he says that!

1 Peter 3:3
Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel

1 Timothy 2:9
In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

We know that both brothas and sistas wear braides and both wear Locs as well.

Brotha NT, you showed some of the dirtiest Dreadz or Locs that I have ever seen in my life...pure nasty;However, that is not the full spectrum of wearing Locs. The pictures below have been enlarged to show the cleanliness of the hair!








Never has a hairstyle been so misunderstood and generated so many rumors.

Rumor #1 : You do not wash dreadlocks. Hair must be dirty to dread.

Fact: If you do not wash your hair it will stink. Dreadlocked hair needs to be washed regularly just like un-dreaded hair. You can wash dreads just as you would wash a sponge, by working the soap in and then squeezing and rinsing repeatedly to get all the soap out. Clean hair will actually lock up faster than dirty or oily hair. Because nearly every soap and shampoo on the market contains residues it was thought that clean hair does not dread quickly, when in fact it is the residues (conditioners, moisterizers, builders and fragrance holders) in the soaps that prevent hair from locking up. This is why we reccommend washing you dreads only in residue free soaps and shampoos.

Rumor: Simply not combing your hair is the only way to get nice dreads.

Fact: This is called the neglect method. Under some circumstances simply not combing hair will make it dread. The best example of this is so- called African-textured hair. Left alone, so- called African hair will eventually dread. Unfortunately the results, although technically called dreads, are usually less than pleasing to the eye. The hair forms giant matts at random all over the head. Some caucasion hair, if it is curly enough, will also dread by neglect but the same problem exists. It takes several years for the hair to lock fully and when it does it generally looks un kept, kind of like you might expect hair to look after not combing it for a few years.

Rumor: Dreads damage your scalp and can lead to thinning hair.

Fact: If cared for using the proper methods and products dreadlocks are actualy a very heathly hairstyle. Natural dreads do not require the use of any chemical processes making them better for your scalp than any hair style that requires your hair to be chemically permed or straightened. The residue free soaps that dreadlocks are washed in actually increase hair growth and cause hair to grow thicker and faster by removing residue from the hair folicles.

As long as a brotha or sista is not shaving their head for the purpose of worldly styling... then it is lawful a man is not to let his hair grow to long but even this is according to ones preference.

2 Samuel 14:25
But in all Israel there was none to be so much praised as Absalom for his beauty: from the sole of his foot even to the crown of his head there was no blemish in him.

2 Samuel 14:26
And when he polled his head, (for it was at every year's end that he polled it: because the hair was heavy on him, therefore he polled it he weighed the hair of his head at two hundred shekels after the king's weight.

1 Shekel= .364oz (source- The New Strong's expanded Exhaustive concordance of the Bible Misc.section under Monies and weights)

1 Corinthians 11:14-16
14. Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?

15. But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.

16. But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

We cannot impose our thoughts or feelings on others just because it is not right for us!

1 Corinthians 6:12
All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

1 Corinthians 10:23
All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.


As long as they are keeping up their personal Hygiene and the hair style does not break the Righteous Laws of the Most High; then we can not condemn it.

Apocrypha KJV:
Sirach{ Ecclesiasticus} 19:29         A man may be known by his look, and one that hath understanding by his countenance, when thou meetest him.

Sirach{Ecclesiasticus} 19:30         A man's attire, and excessive laughter, and gait, shew what he is.


Shalam

RS your disagreement is noted but your reply proves nothing to this argument. however as I stated before, one cannot assume the word LOCKS is referring to the style suggested in this thread. LOCKS simply mean the hair and its various textures. As Numbers chapter 6 states the nazarite must let "THE LOCKS OF HIS HAIR GROW" for the duration of his/her vow. If a man's hair length is 1/2 inch at the beginning of his vow, and only grows another 1/2 inch at completion, where are the locks or the braids? (Mind you it takes a certain length of hair to make braids or dreadlocks.) HOWEVER scripture clearly states that whatever grows are "LOCKS". When you examine the hebrew lexicon you will see two different hebrew words for locks. One meaning simply "ONES HAIR" (used in Numbers 6) the other meaning "INTERTWINING HAIR" (used in reference to samson). Reading without understanding would mean a nazarite could only grow dreads or braids if we take the word "LOCKS" for face value. This would explain Solomon's bushy locks. Can we assume this is a dread lock or even braids for that matter? If the definition of locks also means "Simply the hair" could it just be that he wore a style known as an AFRO? hence the term "afro puffs" are not these bushy even when they are well kept? Lets prove the locks further and examine Ezekiel:

Ezek. 44:20 "Neither shall they shave their heads, nor suffer their locks to grow long; they shall only poll their heads."

NOW!!!! the Most High is explaining to Ezekiel the restoration of the Levite Priesthood. Hear the Lord says he will not suffer their LOCKS to grow long but they can only poll (trim) their HEADS. This scripture clearly states that locks are the hair of the head. If not where is it in scripture that the Levites were commanded to wear locks? (since it reads clearly, LOCKS) They weren't! So "LOCKS" cannot be in reference to a particular hairstyle...but the HAIR in part or as whole. The question at hand was did Samson wear dreadlocks? Scripture research does not validate this answer as yes. but a definitive NO. And the word LOCKS found in scripture does not prove these are dreadlocks but simply ones hair. If you care to examine the word LOCKS in an "OLD ENGLISH" dictionary, you will find that LOCKS is a poetic term for "flowing HAIR". In Robert Southey's story "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" (1837) did she have gold/blonde dreadlocks? but rather large CURLS, which further proves the english use of the word LOCKS in reference to simply HAIR.

Isaiah 47:1 "Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.
V47:2 Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers."

Since this is a judgement against ALL of Babylonians, Would this mean EVERY Chaldean/Babylonian wore locks? dreads or braids that is? Now it makes sense why Samson's definition of locks was more meticulous in description.

As far as what is lawful, we are commanded not to follow the customs of the other nations. The nations performed many acts that go beyond what is mentioned within the law (lip plating, neck stretching, urinating on one another etc... should Israel partake? You Decide!

May the church say AMEN! First, Repenting sister, your lesson on dreadlock hygiene doesnt prove that Jacs wore them. I had dreads some time ago and I can also give a long lesson on how unsanitary they are regardless of how many positive COMPLIMENTS I received. The POINT is did Israel wear them or not? We researched this subject to find the DREADLOCK of HAMETIC origin. MANY bros and sis fight this because they have them. Many Israelite churches also wear Hametic ATTIRE thats without question african origin and they give this same WEAK ASS argument. What happened to ACHAN for bringing an AFRICAN garment into the camp of ISRAEL? HIM AND HIS FAMILY WAS PUT TO DEATH!!! Read Joshua Chapter 7

SECONDLY, you are completely OUT OF ORDER of the Israelite woman in your response.

1Tim 2:12 BUT I SUFFER NOT A WOMAN TO TEACH, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

Especially when you are giving out inaccurate information. But that is another topic in itself. There are some churches that permit this madness but the true church of MASHIYACH YAHAWASHI DOES NOT!!! And neither do the SCRIPTURES! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Rev 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

Thank you for the Response brotha TN, now you say that my "reply proves nothing to this argument" but you have actually proven my points for me. You said that " LOCKS simply mean the hair and its various textures" so it could mean Dreadz, afro or braids from this definition that you stated. You also go on to say " Scripture research does not validate this answer as yes. but a definitive NO." Where is the Law? Other nations also wear braided hair and afros does this mean we should Not? The laws were not given to a fictitious Goldie locks or her Edomite nation; therefore show me the law! Israel in the Majority does not have the same hair texture as Edomites, so locks for them may mean a big giant curl but not for the majority of our nation. Surely your not suggesting that our Men had Long large curls as the edomites. By the way, a Loc or dread is " Intertwining Hair"

Brotha footsoilder, This is not the church but rather a forum for discussion and Correction is not Usurping the authority of the Man. Do not women sometimes have to correct their husbands and sistas their brothas? asking someone to prove all things is not Usurping either. If you say that it is not lawful for brothas and sistas to wear them... then where is the Law?



Many of our foremothers corrected Brothas without Usurping authority. I love and respect the Order of the Most High!

How then am I out of Order?

Acts 17:11
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Neither are the streets the church but does that give sisters the PERMISSION to go out and correct and comment to the teachers? Our foremothers used a COUTH of shamefacedness even in their prophesying. Go And talk to MIRIAM Moses sister about that leprosy YAHAWAH gave to her when she tried to CORRECT Moses. And further more you have not corrected anything and have yet to produce a DREAD in the BIBLE! The bro clearly shows you that LOCKS dont mean a DREADLOCK. You are speculating! "PROVE ALL THINGS" and show us a DREAD! We see hair and braids but no Dreadz! When we read that MASHIYACH YAHWASHI's hair was "white like wool" CAN WE just say these were white dreadlocks because the AFROCENTRIC artwork portrays the MASHIYACH with dreadlocks? OR maybe he had a HIGHTOP FADE??? a JHERI CURL? a MOHAWK? We Cannot speculate! but our people practice many heathen customs and also have a hard time letting those things go. Nipple, clit, and penis piercings are performed today, should we do them because there is no direct law against them? ISRAEL does the same thing with HERB.. they see it in the BIBLE and just know it means SMOKING WEED!

Brotha footsoldier, you speak foolishly right now! your statement: "OR maybe he had a HIGHTOP FADE??? a JHERI CURL? a MOHAWK?" is foolish!

Titus 3:9
But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain

Matthew 22:29
Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

Hebrews 4:15
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

1 Peter 1:15
But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

I will cut this conversation short with you for now until you repent!

No I speak TRUTHFULLY! Sister! YOU DIDN'T TAKE THIS ADVICE WHEN YOU INITIATED YOUR ARGUMENT. NOW THAT YOUR FALLACIES are EXPOSED you want to SUDDENLY take the HUMBLE road? NOW I HAVE TO REPENT for doing EXACTLY what you said in your earlier comment? SHOWING ISRAEL THEIR SINS!!! IF YOU CHOOSE TO ARGUE THIS OR ANY MATTER WITH ME, GO GET YOUR HUSBAND or the MAN that TEACHES YOU AND HAVE HIM FIGHT YOUR BATTLES FOR YOU PROPERLY and we can get TRUTH established the way its supposed to be IN ORDER!!!! AND TELL HIM TO SHOW ME A DREAD! (to stay on topic)

STAND UP!!

Going back to the initial question, Were the locks Samson had dreadlocks? I will say again that this was not the case. I also said many trends and customs Israel has picked up recently are unlawful such as tatoos, baldheads, women in pants etc... which are clearly unlawful according to scripture but have been modernized and made acceptable in this time. Many teach that the word LOCKS mean dreads and nothing else. This stands inaccurate as my previous replies demonstrate. If the hair of men and women is their glory and covering, what should be dreaded about it unless it was unpleasant? There is no law against wearing dreadlocks just as there is no law against wearing a shield of David (unless worshipped). However because many believe these customs originated among the nations (Gentiles) they discard them. And other research has led others to support these things. So one must do the research and decide for ones self. We know that ALL of the holidays and customs of America are not in scripture per se, but understanding the ORIGIN and INTENT of these things will help us execute better judgment whether they should be observed. ie Valentines Day, Thanksgiving, 4th of July etc...

I do not believe that one should teach that locks are only dreadz but that they are not exclusive of them either;this was my point from the beginning:that we can not say that it is unlawful for brothas and sistas to wear them ( the dreadz as they are called by some) just like weave! Can you say that sistas are going to miss out on the kingdom because they have synthetic hair in their head but they keep the commandments?

Brotha TN, I see your points... first, that we can't just say that Samson wore dreadz and nothing else because they could have been seven large braids and also that their is no law against wearing them ( dreadz) except those ones that you showed above with your post( that's is dreadful and discussing) I merely wanted to show the other styles that are indeed sanitary.

Your sista in truth, RS
