JUDG 13:1 The children of Israel again did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh; and Yahweh delivered them into the hand of the Philistines forty years.
JUDG 13:2 There was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and didn't bear.
JUDG 13:3 The angel of Yahweh appeared to the woman, and said to her, See now, you are barren, and don't bear; but you shall conceive, and bear a son.
JUDG 13:4 Now therefore please beware and drink no wine nor strong drink, and don't eat any unclean thing:
JUDG 13:5 for, behold, you shall conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head; for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb: and he shall begin to save Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.
JUDG 13:6 Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of God came to me, and his face was like the face of the angel of God, very awesome; and I didn't ask him whence he was, neither did he tell me his name:
JUDG 13:7 but he said to me, Behold, you shall conceive, and bear a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing; for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb to the day of his death.
JUDG 13:8 Then Manoah entreated Yahweh, and said, Oh, Lord, please let the man of God whom you did send come again to us, and teach us what we shall do to the child who shall be born.
JUDG 13:9 God listened to the voice of Manoah; and the angel of God came again to the woman as she sat in the field: but Manoah, her husband, wasn't with her.
JUDG 13:10 The woman made haste, and ran, and told her husband, and said to him, Behold, the man has appeared to me, who came to me the [other] day.
JUDG 13:11 Manoah arose, and went after his wife, and came to the man, and said to him, Are you the man who spoke to the woman? He said, I am.
JUDG 13:12 Manoah said, Now let your words happen: what shall be the ordering of the child, and [how] shall we do to him?
JUDG 13:13 The angel of Yahweh said to Manoah, Of all that I said to the woman let her beware.
JUDG 13:14 She may not eat of anything that comes of the vine, neither let her drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing; all that I commanded her let her observe.
JUDG 13:15 Manoah said to the angel of Yahweh, I pray you, let us detain you, that we may make ready a kid for you.
JUDG 13:16 The angel of Yahweh said to Manoah, Though you detain me, I won't eat of your bread; and if you will make ready a burnt offering, you must offer it to Yahweh. For Manoah didn't know that he was the angel of Yahweh.
JUDG 13:17 Manoah said to the angel of Yahweh, What is your name, that when your words happen, we may honor you?
JUDG 13:18 The angel of Yahweh said to him, Why do you ask after my name, seeing it is wonderful?
JUDG 13:19 So Manoah took the kid with the meal-offering, and offered it on the rock to Yahweh: and [the angel] did wondrously, and Manoah and his wife looked on.
JUDG 13:20 For it happened, when the flame went up toward the sky from off the altar, that the angel of Yahweh ascended in the flame of the altar: and Manoah and his wife looked on; and they fell on their faces to the ground.
JUDG 13:21 But the angel of Yahweh did no more appear to Manoah or to his wife. Then Manoah knew that he was the angel of Yahweh.
JUDG 13:22 Manoah said to his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen God.
JUDG 13:23 But his wife said to him, If Yahweh were pleased to kill us, he wouldn't have received a burnt offering and a meal-offering at our hand, neither would he have shown us all these things, nor would at this time have told such things as these.
JUDG 13:24 The woman bore a son, and named him Samson: and the child grew, and Yahweh blessed him.
JUDG 13:25 The Spirit of Yahweh began to move him in Mahaneh-dan, between Zorah and Eshtaol.
