Judges 13:11-13

13:11 So Manoah got up and followed his wife. When he met 1  the man, he said to him, “Are you the man who spoke to my wife?” 2  He said, “Yes.” 3  13:12 Manoah said, “Now, when your announcement comes true, 4  how should the child be raised and what should he do?” 5  13:13 The Lord’s messenger told 6  Manoah, “Your wife should pay attention to everything I told her. 7 

1 tn Heb “came to.”

2 tn Heb “the woman.”

3 tn Heb “I [am].”

4 tn Heb “Now, [when] your word comes [to pass].”

5 tn Heb “what will be the child’s rule [i.e., way of life] and his work?”

6 tn Or “said to.”

7 tn Heb “To everything I said to the woman she should pay attention.” The Hebrew word order emphasizes “to everything,” probably because Manoah’s wife did not tell her husband everything the angel had said to her (cf. vv. 3-5 with v. 7). If she had, Manoah probably would not have been so confused about the child’s mission.
