American Standard Version
And it came to pass, when she pressed him daily with her words, and urged him, that his soul was vexed unto death.
Young's Literal Translation

Judges 16:16 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
His soul was vexed unto death - What a consummate fool was this strong man! Might he not have seen, from what already took place, that Delilah intended his ruin? After trifling with her, and lying thrice, he at last commits to her his fatal secret, and thus becomes a traitor to himself and to his God. Well may we adopt the sensible observation of Calmet on this passage: La foiblesse du caeur de Samson, dans torte cette histoire, est encore plus etonnante que la force de son corps; "The weakness of Samson's heart in the whole of this history, is yet more astonishing than the strength of his body."
