    What a glorious begining and the desire of Godly parents. May our children not only be blessed by the Lord , may they also fear God trusting and obeying HIM all the days of their life
  • Joyce Joseph
    Verse 28 We see the amazing forgiveness of God. He remembered Samson when he called on him to do so.
  • Lu2677
    Here are a few words that show at times "Angel of the Lord" is, The Lord. (KJV) does not capitalize "angel". Judges 13:9-25 V.22"because we have seen God."Judges 2"I led you up from Egypt, I will never break my covenant."Gen.16:6-8,Gen.22:15,Exodus 3:2"in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush." Read in context or the entire chapter to see the truth. Some versions do use caps for Angel.

    Hello Saints! In verse 20-For it came to pass, when the flame went up toward heaven from off the altar, that the angel of the LORD ascended in the flame of the altar. And Manoah and his wife looked on it, and fell on their faces to the ground. I have only one word for the appearance of Yahweh, on planet earth. PRICELESS!
  • Fowodu Olalekan Abimbola
    Often times in the bible divine revelations come first to the wife. Women play important roles in the family.Also women do give assurance and affirm God's promises to their husbands and leaders,i.e wife of Manoah, Abigail, Deborah etc .There is need for modern women to come closer to God and start fulfilling their divine assignments to their families, communities and their nations.
  • Kaggwa Andrew
    Again, God chooses the unqualified ones! a barren woman to bring forth a savior! What about the wits of Mr. Manoah? vs 22...he thinks he were to die because he had seen God!!!! I love the wits and audacity of Mrs.Manoah in vs 23. Women ooyee!!!! deliverance after 18 years of bondage, a man like Jephtha or Gideon could handle, but after 40 years!!! that required a man of special birth, a Nazirite!!
