Judges 13:11-21Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
11 So Manoah got up and followed his wife. When he came to the man, he asked, “Are You the man who spoke to my wife?”
“I am,” He said.
12 Then Manoah asked, “When Your words come true, what will the boy’s responsibilities and mission[a] be?”
13 The Angel of the Lord answered Manoah, “Your wife needs to do everything I told her. 14 She must not eat anything that comes from the grapevine or drink wine or beer. And she must not eat anything unclean. Your wife must do everything I have commanded her.”
15 “Please stay here,” Manoah told Him, “and we will prepare a young goat for You.”
16 The Angel of the Lord said to him, “If I stay, I won’t eat your food. But if you want to prepare a burnt offering, offer it to the Lord.” For Manoah did not know He was the Angel of the Lord.
17 Then Manoah said to Him, “What is Your name, so that we may honor You when Your words come true?”
18 “Why do you ask My name,” the Angel of the Lord asked him, “since it is wonderful.”
19 Manoah took a young goat and a grain offering and offered them on a rock to the Lord, and He did a wonderful thing[b] while Manoah and his wife were watching. 20 When the flame went up from the altar to the sky, the Angel of the Lord went up in its flame. When Manoah and his wife saw this, they fell facedown on the ground. 21 The Angel of the Lord did not appear again to Manoah and his wife. Then Manoah realized that it was the Angel of the Lord.
