    Judges 13

    1 And the children of Israel again did that which was evil in the sight of Jehovah; and Jehovah delivered them into the hand of the Philistines forty years.ASV — Judges 13:1

    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.ASV — Judges 13:2

    3 And the angel of Jehovah appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not; but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son.ASV — Judges 13:3

    4 Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink no wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing:ASV — Judges 13:4

    5 for, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come upon his head; for the child shall be a Nazirite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to save Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.ASV — Judges 13:5

    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 the angel of God, very terrible; and I asked him not whence he was, neither told he me his name:ASV — Judges 13:6

    7 but he said unto me, Behold, thou shalt 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 unto God from the womb to the day of his death.ASV — Judges 13:7

    8 Then Manoah entreated Jehovah, and said, Oh, Lord, I pray thee, let the man of God whom thou didst send come again unto us, and teach us what we shall do unto the child that shall be born.ASV — Judges 13:8

    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.ASV — Judges 13:9

    10 And the woman made haste, and ran, and told her husband, and said unto him, Behold, the man hath appeared unto me, that came unto me the [other] day.ASV — Judges 13:10

    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.ASV — Judges 13:11

    12 And Manoah said, Now let thy words come to pass: what shall be the ordering of the child, and [how] shall we do unto him?ASV — Judges 13:12

    13 And the angel of Jehovah said unto Manoah, Of all that I said unto the woman let her beware.ASV — Judges 13:13

    14 She may not eat of anything 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.ASV — Judges 13:14

    15 And Manoah said unto the angel of Jehovah, I pray thee, let us detain thee, that we may make ready a kid for thee.ASV — Judges 13:15

    16 And the angel of Jehovah said unto Manoah, Though thou detain me, I will not eat of thy bread; and if thou wilt make ready a burnt-offering, thou must offer it unto Jehovah. For Manoah knew not that he was the angel of Jehovah.ASV — Judges 13:16

    17 And Manoah said unto the angel of Jehovah, What is thy name, that, when thy words come to pass, we may do thee honor?ASV — Judges 13:17

    18 And the angel of Jehovah said unto him, Wherefore askest thou after my name, seeing it is wonderful?ASV — Judges 13:18

    19 So Manoah took the kid with the meal-offering, and offered it upon the rock unto Jehovah: and [the angel] did wondrously, and Manoah and his wife looked on.ASV — Judges 13:19

    20 For it came to pass, when the flame went up toward heaven from off the altar, that the angel of Jehovah ascended in the flame of the altar: and Manoah and his wife looked on; and they fell on their faces to the ground.ASV — Judges 13:20

    21 But the angel of Jehovah did no more appear to Manoah or to his wife. Then Manoah knew that he was the angel of Jehovah.ASV — Judges 13:21

    22 And Manoah said unto his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen God.ASV — Judges 13:22

    23 But his wife said unto him, If Jehovah were pleased to kill us, he would not have received a burnt-offering and a meal-offering at our hand, neither would he have showed us all these things, nor would at this time have told such things as these.ASV — Judges 13:23

    24 And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and Jehovah blessed him.ASV — Judges 13:24

    25 And the Spirit of Jehovah began to move him in Mahaneh-dan, between Zorah and Eshtaol.ASV — Judges 13:25
