And God listened to the voice of Manoah, and the angel of God came again to the woman as she sat in the field. But Manoah her husband was not with her.
So the woman ran quickly and told her husband, "Behold, the man who came to me the other day has appeared to me."
And Manoah arose and went after his wife and came to the man and said to him, "Are you the man who spoke to this woman?" And he said, "I am."
And Manoah said, "Now when your words come true, 1what is to be the child's manner of life, and what is his mission?"
And the angel of the LORD said to Manoah, "Of all that I said to the woman let her be careful.
She may not eat of anything that comes from the vine, 2neither let her drink wine or strong drink, or eat any unclean thing. All that I commanded her let her observe."
Manoah said to the angel of the LORD, "Please let us detain you and 3prepare a young goat for you."
And the angel of the LORD said to Manoah, "If you detain me, I will not eat of your food. But if you prepare a burnt offering, then offer it to the LORD." (For Manoah did not know that he was the angel of the LORD.)
And Manoah said to the angel of the LORD, 4"What is your name, so that, when your words come true, we may honor you?"
And the angel of the LORD said to him, 5"Why do you ask my name, seeing 6it is wonderful?"
So 7Manoah took the young goat with the grain offering, and offered it on the rock to the LORD, to the one who works wonders, and Manoah and his wife were watching.
And when the flame went up toward heaven from the altar, the angel of the LORD went up in the flame of the altar. Now Manoah and his wife were watching, 8and they fell on their faces to the ground.
The angel of the LORD appeared no more to Manoah and to his wife. 9Then Manoah knew that he was the angel of the LORD.
And Manoah said to his wife, 10"We shall surely die, for we have seen God."
