Philistines Oppress Again

1 Now the sons of Israel again R270 did evil in the sight of the LORD, so that the LORD gave them into the hands of the Philistines forty years.

2 There was a certain man of Zorah, R271 of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren and had borne no children. 3 Then R272 the angel of the LORD appeared to the woman and said to her, "Behold now, you are barren and have borne no children, but you shall conceive and give birth to a son. 4 "Now therefore, be careful not R273 to drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing. 5 "For R274 behold, you shall conceive and give birth to a son, and no razor shall come upon his head, for the boy shall be a Nazirite R275 to God from the womb; and he shall begin to deliver Israel from the hands of the Philistines." 6 Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, "A R276 man of God came to me and his appearance was like the appearance of the angel of God, very awesome. And I did not ask him where he came from, nor did he tell me his name. 7 "But he said to me, `Behold, you shall conceive and give birth to a son, and now you shall not drink wine or strong drink nor eat any unclean thing, for the boy shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb to the day of his death.' "

8 Then Manoah entreated the LORD and said, "O Lord, please let the R277 man of God whom You have sent come to us again that he may teach us what to do for the boy who is to be born." 9 God listened to the voice of Manoah; and the R278 angel of God came again to the woman as she was sitting in the field, but Manoah her husband was not with her. 10 So the woman ran quickly and told her husband, F213 "Behold, the R279 man who came F214 the other day has appeared to me." 11 Then Manoah arose and followed his wife, and when he came to the man he said to him, "Are you the R280 man who spoke to the woman?" And he said, "I am." 12 Manoah said, "Now when your words come to pass, what shall be the boy's mode of life and his vocation?" 13 So the R281 angel of the LORD said to Manoah, "Let R282 the woman pay attention to F215 all that I said. 14 "She should not eat anything that comes from the vine R283 nor drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing; let her observe all that I commanded."

15 Then Manoah said to the R284 angel of the LORD, "Please let us detain you so that we may prepare a young goat for you." 16 The angel of the LORD said to Manoah, "Though you detain me, I R285 will not eat your food, F216 but if you prepare a burnt offering, then offer it to the LORD." For Manoah did not know that he was the angel of the LORD. 17 Manoah said to the angel of the LORD, "What R286 is your name, so that when your words come to pass, we may honor you?" 18 But the angel of the LORD said to him, "Why do you ask my name, seeing it is wonderful?" R287 F217 19 So Manoah R288 took the young goat with the grain offering and offered it on the rock to the LORD, and He performed wonders while Manoah and his wife looked on. 20 For it came about when the flame went up from the altar toward heaven, that the angel of the LORD ascended in the flame of the altar. When Manoah and his wife saw this, they fell R289 on their faces to the ground.

21 Now the angel of the LORD did not appear to Manoah or his wife again. Then R290 Manoah knew that he was the angel of the LORD. 22 So Manoah said to his wife, "We R291 will surely die, for we have seen God." 23 But his wife said to him, "If the LORD had desired to kill us, He would not have accepted a burnt offering and a grain offering from our hands, nor would He have shown R292 us all these things, nor would He have let us hear things like this at this time."

24 Then the woman gave birth to a son and named him Samson; and the child R293 grew up and the LORD blessed him. 25 And the R294 Spirit of the LORD began to stir him in Mahaneh-dan, R295 F218 between Zorah and Eshtaol.
