Deceitful Vexation – Judges 16:16

And when she pressed him hard with her words day after day, and urged him, his soul was vexed to death.


The pestering words of a woman who is close can have a devastating effect upon a man. She holds within her mouth the ability to weaken and even destroy the weak man. Samson is so strong in body; yet, so weak in spirit. The repetitive dripping of his woman’s mouth eventually moves him to share something that will literally bring about his death. He truly was vexed to death by her words. “The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. ”

The influence of a woman upon a man who loves her is significant. A godly woman must always be intent on lifting her man up through honest talk that strengthens not tearing him down through the dripping of a deceitful, annoying mouth. Certainly the converse is true.
