All the Men of the Bible - Tuesday, August 6, 2013

Manoah [Mānō'ah]—rest or quiet. A Danite belonging to Zorah, and father of Samson (Judg. 13; 16:31). Manoah was a godly, hospitable man and was against any alliance with the Philistines. A divine messenger brought him word of Samson’s birth. We have four glimpses of this devout worshiper of Jehovah:

His remonstrance with Samson over his Philistine marriage (Judg. 14:2, 3).

His visit with Samson to Timnah (Judg. 14:5, 6).

His presence at his son’s marriage (Judg. 14:9, 10).

His death before Samson’s tragic death (Judg. 16:31).
