Judges 13:8-9


13:8 Manoah prayed to the Lord, 1  “Please, Lord, allow the man sent from God 2  to visit 3  us again, so he can teach 4  us how we should raise 5  the child who will be born.” 13:9 God answered Manoah’s prayer. 6  God’s angelic messenger visited 7  the woman again while she was sitting in the field. But her husband Manoah was not with her.

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

2 tn Heb “the man of God.”

3 tn Heb “come to.”

4 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”).

5 tn Heb “what we should do for.”

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

7 tn Heb “came to.”
