Bible Answer, 23

~ Did You Get It Right? ~

~~~~ bible answer ~~~~  

question 23:  Which Biblical character grew the most hair as recorded in the Bible?

comment:  An easy answer might be Samson—but he had long hair!  There is no indication that he might have grown the most hair. 

answer:  Absalom’s annual growth of hair weighed about 6 ¼ pounds. 

Now in all Israel there was no one who was praised as much as Absalom for his good looks.  From the sole of his foot to the crown of his head there was no blemish in him.  And when he cut the hair of his head — at the end of every year he cut it because it was heavy on him — when he cut it, he weighed the hair of his head at two hundred shekels according to the king's standard” (2 Samuel 14:25-26).
