1 tn The adjective “angelic” is interpretive (also in vv. 6, 9).

2 tn Heb “Look, you.”

3 tn Heb “and have not given birth.”

4 tn The Hebrew text adds “and said.” This has not been included in the translation for stylistic reasons.

5 tn Heb “the man of God.”

6 tn Heb “come to.”

7 tc The LXX has “enlighten,” understanding the Hebrew to read וִיאִירֵנוּ (viirenu, “to give light”) rather than the reading of the MT, וְיוֹרֵנוּ (vÿyorenu, “to teach”).

8 tn Heb “what we should do for.”

9 tn Heb “God listened to the voice of Manoah.”

10 tn Heb “came to.”
