Where did Samson live?

Samson's family lived in Zorah, which was in the foothills west of Jerusalem, near Philistine territory, in the lowlands that separated the Philistine plain from the hill country of Judah. Once Samson grew up, he decided to disobey God and marry a Philistine woman from Timnah, a town on the northwest border of Judah. The whole Samson and Delilah saga happened in the Valley of Sorek, another Philistine territory.
