18 And the Angel of the Lord said to him, n“Why do you ask My name, seeing it is wonderful?”
19 So Manoah took the young goat with the grain offering, oand offered it upon the rock to the Lord. And He did a wondrous thing while Manoah and his wife looked on—20 it happened as the flame went up toward heaven from the altar—the Angel of the Lord ascended in the flame of the altar! When Manoah and his wife saw this, they pfell on their faces to the ground. 21 When the Angel of the Lord appeared no more to Manoah and his wife, qthen Manoah knew that He was the Angel of the Lord.
22 And Manoah said to his wife, r“We shall surely die, because we have seen God!”
23 But his wife said to him, “If the Lord had desired to kill us, He would not have accepted a burnt offering and a grain offering from our hands, nor would He have shown us all these things, nor would He have told us such things as these at this time.”
