strkjv@Judges:13:1 @ And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD Y@hovah#; and the LORD Y@hovah# delivered them into the hand of the Philistines P@lishtiy# forty years.
strkjv@Judges:13:2 @ And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not.
strkjv@Judges:13:3 @ And the angel of the LORD Y@hovah# appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son.
strkjv@Judges:13:4 @ Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing:
strkjv@Judges:13:5 @ For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines P@lishtiy#.
strkjv@Judges:13:6 @ Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of God came unto me, and his countenance was like the countenance of an angel of God, very m@#od# terrible: but I asked him not whence he was, neither told he me his name:
strkjv@Judges:13:7 @ But he said unto me, Behold, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, neither eat any unclean thing: for the child shall be a Nazarite to God from the womb to the day of his death.
strkjv@Judges:13:8 @ Then Manoah intreated the LORD Y@hovah#, and said, O my Lord, let the man of God which thou didst send come again unto us, and teach us what we shall do unto the child that shall be born.
strkjv@Judges:13:9 @ And God hearkened to the voice of Manoah; and the angel of God came again unto the woman as she sat in the field: but Manoah her husband was not with her.
strkjv@Judges:13:10 @ And the woman made haste, and ran, and shewed her husband, and said unto him, Behold, the man hath appeared unto me, that came unto me the other day.
strkjv@Judges:13:11 @ And Manoah arose, and went after his wife, and came to the man, and said unto him, Art thou the man that spakest unto the woman? And he said, I am.
strkjv@Judges:13:12 @ And Manoah said, Now let thy words come to pass. How shall we order the child, and how shall we do unto him?
strkjv@Judges:13:13 @ And the angel of the LORD Y@hovah# said unto Manoah, Of all that I said unto the woman let her beware.
strkjv@Judges:13:14 @ She may not eat of any thing that cometh of the vine, neither let her drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing: all that I commanded her let her observe.
strkjv@Judges:13:15 @ And Manoah said unto the angel of the LORD Y@hovah#, I pray thee, let us detain thee, until we shall have made ready a kid g^diy# for thee.
strkjv@Judges:13:16 @ And the angel of the LORD Y@hovah# said unto Manoah, Though thou detain me, I will not eat of thy bread: and if thou wilt offer a burnt offering, thou must offer it unto the LORD Y@hovah#. For Manoah knew not that he was an angel of the LORD Y@hovah#.
strkjv@Judges:13:17 @ And Manoah said unto the angel of the LORD Y@hovah#, What is thy name, that when thy sayings come to pass we may do thee honour?
strkjv@Judges:13:18 @ And the angel of the LORD Y@hovah# said unto him, Why askest thou thus after my name, seeing it is secret ?
strkjv@Judges:13:19 @ So Manoah took a kid g^diy# with a meat offering, and offered it upon a rock unto the LORD Y@hovah#: and the angel did wondrously; and Manoah and his wife looked on.
strkjv@Judges:13:20 @ For it came to pass, when the flame went up toward heaven from off the altar, that the angel of the LORD Y@hovah# ascended in the flame of the altar. And Manoah and his wife looked on it, and fell on their faces to the ground.
strkjv@Judges:13:21 @ But the angel of the LORD Y@hovah# did no more appear to Manoah and to his wife. Then Manoah knew that he was an angel of the LORD Y@hovah#.
strkjv@Judges:13:22 @ And Manoah said unto his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen God.
strkjv@Judges:13:23 @ But his wife said unto him, If the LORD Y@hovah# were pleased to kill us, he would not have received a burnt offering and a meat offering at our hands, neither would he have shewed us all these things, nor would as at this time have told us such things as these.
strkjv@Judges:13:24 @ And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and the LORD Y@hovah# blessed him.
strkjv@Judges:13:25 @ And the Spirit of the LORD Y@hovah# began to move him at times in the camp of Dan between Zorah and Eshtaol.
