Why did the Philistines allow Samson’s hair go grow back when they knew it was the key to his great strength?

Was it because they blinded his eyes? No, for even a blind

but strong Samson could cause severe havoc.

Why then did they allow his hair to grown back? Because the

Philistines did not know a forgiving God. If one of the

champions of their god Dagon had betrayed Dagon the way

Samson betrayed Jehovah, it would have been off with his

head. "Let his hair grown back" they must have thought,

"gods don’t forgive they only punish and destroy."

How wonderful to know a forgiving God like our Christian God.
