Judges 16: 8 Then the lords of the Philistines brought up to her seven fresh bowstrings which had not been dried, and she bound him with them.

Judges 16: 11 And he said unto her: 'If they only bind me with new ropes wherewith no work, hath been done, then shall I become weak, and be as any other man.'

Judges 16: 14 And she fastened it with the pin, and said unto him: 'The Philistines are upon thee, Samson.' And he awoke out of his sleep, and plucked away the pin of the beam, and the web.
