The Israelites again did what was evil in the Lord's sight, so the Lord handed them over to the Philistines 40 years.
There was a certain man from Zorah, from the family of Dan, whose name was Manoah; his wife was barren and had no children.
The Angel of the Lord appeared to the woman and said to her, "It is true that you are barren and have no children, but you will conceive and give birth to a son.
Now please be careful not to drink wine or other alcoholic beverages, or to eat anything unclean;
for indeed, you will conceive and give birth to a son. You must never cut his hair, because the boy will be a Nazirite to God from birth, and he will begin to save Israel from the power of the Philistines."
