Judges 13:15-16

13:15 Manoah said to the Lord’s messenger, “Please stay here awhile, 1  so we can prepare a young goat for you to eat.” 2  13:16 The Lord’s messenger said to Manoah, “If I stay, 3  I will not eat your food. But if you want to make a burnt sacrifice to the Lord, you should offer it.” (He said this because Manoah did not know that he was the Lord’s messenger.) 4 

Judges 19:7

19:7 When the man got ready to leave, 5  his father-in-law convinced him to stay another night. 6 

1 tn Heb “Please allow us to detain you.”

2 tn Heb “so we can prepare before you a young goat of the goats.”

3 tn Heb “If you detain me.”

4 tn The words “he said this” are supplied in the translation for clarification. Manoah should have known from these words that the messenger represented the Lord. In the preceding narrative the narrator has informed the reader that the visitor is the Lord’s messenger, but Manoah and his wife did not perceive this. In vv. 5 and 7 the angel refers to “God” (אֱלֹהִים, ’elohim), not the Lord (יְהוַה, yÿhvah). Manoah’s wife calls the visitor “a man sent from God” and “God’s messenger” (v. 6), while Manoah prays to the “Lord” (אֲדוֹנָי, ’adonay) and calls the visitor “a man sent from God” (v. 8).

5 tn Heb “and the man arose to go.”

6 tn Heb “his father-in-law persuaded him and he again spent the night there.”
