1 And the children of Israel yet again committed iniquity before the Lord; and the Lord delivered them into the hand of the Phylistines forty years. 2 And there was a man of Saraa, of the family of the kindred of Dan, and his name was Manoe, and his wife was barren, and bore not. 3 And an angel of the Lord appeared to the woman, and said to her, Behold, thou art barren and hast not born; yet thou shalt conceive a son. 4 And now be very cautious, and drink no wine nor strong drink, and eat no unclean thing; 5 for behold, thou art with child, and shalt bring forth a son; and there shall come no razor upon his head, for the child shall be a Nazarite to God from the womb; and he shall begin to save Israel from the hand of the Phylistines. 6 And the woman went in, and spoke to her husband, saying, A man of God came to me, and his appearance [was as] of an angel of God, very dreadful; and I did not ask him whence he was, and he did not tell me his name. 7 And he said to me, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bring forth a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, and eat no unclean thing; for the child shall be holy to God from the womb until the day of his death. 8 And Manoe prayed to the Lord and said, I pray thee, O Lord my lord, [concerning] the man of God whom thou sentest; let him now come to us once more, and teach us what we shall do to the child about to be born. 9 And the Lord heard the voice of Manoe, and the angel of God came yet again to the woman; and she sat in the field, and Manoe her husband was not with her. 10 And the woman hasted, and ran, and brought word to her husband, and said to him, Behold the man who came in [the other] day to me has appeared to me. 11 And Manoe arose and followed his wife, and came to the man, and said to him, Art thou the man that spoke to the woman? and the angel said, I [am]. 12 And Manoe said, Now shall [thy] word come to pass: what shall be the ordering of the child, and our dealings with him? 13 And the angel of the Lord said to Manoe, Of all things concerning which I spoke to the woman, she shall beware. 14 She shall eat of nothing that comes of the vine yielding wine, and let her not drink wine or strong liquor, and let her not eat anything unclean: all things that I have charged her she shall observe. 15 And Manoe said to the angel of the Lord, Let us detain thee here, and prepare before thee a kid of the goats. 16 And the angel of the Lord said to Manoe, If thou shouldest detain me, I will not eat of thy bread; and if thou wouldest offer a whole-burnt-offering, to the Lord thou shalt offer it: for Manoe knew not that he [was] an angel of the Lord. 17 And Manoe said to the angel of the Lord, What [is] thy name, that [when] thy word shall come to pass, we may glorify thee? 18 And the angel of the Lord said to him, Why dost thou thus ask after my name; whereas it is wonderful? 19 And Manoe took a kid of the goats and its meat-offering, and offered it on the rock to the Lord; and [the angel] wrought a distinct work, and Manoe and his wife were looking on. 20 And it came to pass when the flame went up above the altar toward heaven, that the angel of the Lord went up in the flame; and Manoe and his wife were looking, and they fell upon their face to the earth. 21 And the angel appeared no more to Manoe and to his wife: then Manoe knew that this [was] an angel of the Lord. 22 And Manoe said to his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen God. 23 But his wife said to him, If the Lord were pleased to slay us, he would not have received of our hand a whole-burnt-offering and a meat-offering; and he would not have shewn us all these things, neither would he have caused us to hear all these things as at this time. 24 And the woman brought forth a son, and she called his name Sampson; and the child grew, and the Lord blessed him. 25 And the Spirit of the Lord began to go out with him in the camp of Dan, and between Saraa and Esthaol. ΚΑΙ προσέθηκαν ἔτι οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον Κυρίου, καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτοὺς Κύριος ἐν χειρὶ Φυλιστιΐμ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη. 2 καὶ ἦν ἀνὴρ εἷς ἀπὸ Σαραὰ ἀπὸ δήμου συγγενείας τοῦ Δανί, καὶ ὄνομα αὐτῷ Μανωέ, καὶ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ στεῖρα καὶ οὐκ ἔτεκε. 3 καὶ ὤφθη ἄγγελος Κυρίου πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα, καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτήν· ἰδοὺ σὺ στεῖρα καὶ οὐ τέτοκας, καὶ συλλήψῃ υἱόν. 4 καὶ νῦν φύλαξαι δὴ καὶ μὴ πίῃς οἶνον καὶ μέθυσμα καὶ μὴ φάγῃς πᾶν ἀκάθαρτον· 5 ὅτι ἰδοὺ σὺ ἐν γαστρὶ ἔχεις καὶ τέξῃ υἱόν, καὶ σίδηρος ἐπὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἀναβήσεται, ὅτι ναζὶρ Θεοῦ ἔσται τὸ παιδάριον ἀπὸ τῆς κοιλίας, καὶ αὐτὸς ἄρξεται σῶσαι τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐκ χειρὸς Φυλιστιΐμ. 6 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἡ γυνὴ καὶ εἶπε τῷ ἀνδρὶ αὐτῆς λέγουσα· ἄνθρωπος Θεοῦ ἦλθε πρός με, καὶ εἶδος αὐτοῦ ὡς εἶδος ἀγγέλου Θεοῦ, φοβερὸν σφόδρα· καὶ οὐκ ἠρώτησα αὐτόν, πόθεν ἐστί, καὶ τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἀπήγγειλέ μοι. 7 καὶ εἶπέ μοι· ἰδοὺ σὺ ἐν γαστρὶ ἔχεις καὶ τέξῃ υἱόν· καὶ νῦν μὴ πίῃς οἶνον καὶ μέθυσμα καὶ μὴ φάγῃς πᾶν ἀκάθαρτον, ὅτι Θεοῦ ἅγιον ἔσται τὸ παιδάριον ἀπὸ γαστρὸς ἕως ἡμέρας θανάτου αὐτοῦ. 8 καὶ προσηύξατο Μανωὲ πρὸς Κύριον καὶ εἶπεν· ἐν ἐμοί, Κύριε ᾿Αδωναϊέ, τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ Θεοῦ, ὃν ἀπέστειλας, ἐλθέτω δὴ ἔτι πρὸς ἡμᾶς καὶ συμβιβασάτω ἡμᾶς τί ποιήσωμεν τῷ παιδίῳ τῷ τικτομένῳ. 9 καὶ εἰσήκουσεν ὁ Θεὸς τῆς φωνῆς Μανωέ, καὶ ἦλθεν ὁ ἄγγελος τοῦ Θεοῦ ἔτι πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα, καὶ αὕτη ἐκάθητο ἐν ἀγρῷ, καὶ Μανωὲ ὁ ἀνὴρ αὐτῆς οὐκ ἦν μετ᾿ αὐτῆς. 10 καὶ ἐτάχυνεν ἡ γυνὴ καὶ ἔδραμε καὶ ἀνήγγειλε τῷ ἀνδρὶ αὐτῆς καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτόν· ἰδοὺ ὦπται πρός με ὁ ἀνήρ, ὃς ἦλθεν ἐν ἡμέρᾳ πρός με. 11 καὶ ἀνέστη καὶ ἐπορεύθη Μανωὲ ὀπίσω τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἦλθε πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· εἰ σὺ εἶ ὁ ἀνὴρ ὁ λαλήσας πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα; καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄγγελος· ἐγώ. 12 καὶ εἶπε Μανωέ· νῦν ἐλεύσεται ὁ λόγος σου· τίς ἔσται κρίσις τοῦ παιδίου καὶ τὰ ποιήματα αὐτοῦ; 13 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄγγελος Κυρίου πρὸς Μανωέ· ἀπὸ πάντων, ὧν εἴρηκα πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα, φυλάξεται· 14 ἀπὸ παντός, ὃ ἐκπορεύεται ἐξ ἀμπέλου τοῦ οἴνου, οὐ φάγεται καὶ οἶνον καὶ μέθυσμα μὴ πιέτω καὶ πᾶν ἀκάθαρτον μὴ φαγέτω· πάντα ὅσα ἐνετειλάμην αὐτῇ, φυλάξεται. 15 καὶ εἶπε Μανωὲ πρὸς τὸν ἄγγελον Κυρίου· κατάσχωμεν ὧδέ σε καὶ ποιήσωμεν ἐνώπιόν σου ἔριφον αἰγῶν. 16 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄγγελος Κυρίου πρὸς Μανωέ· ἐὰν κατάσχῃς με, οὐ φάγομαι ἀπὸ τῶν ἄρτων σου, καὶ ἐὰν ποιήσῃς ὁλοκαύτωμα, τῷ Κυρίῳ ἀνοίσεις αὐτό· ὅτι οὐκ ἔγνω Μανωὲ ὅτι ἄγγελος Κυρίου αὐτός. 17 καὶ εἶπε Μανωὲ πρὸς τὸν ἄγγελον Κυρίου· τί τὸ ὄνομά σοι; ὅτι ἔλθοι τὸ ῥῆμά σου, καὶ δοξάσομέν σε. 18 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ ἄγγελος Κυρίου· εἰς τί τοῦτο ἐρωτᾷς τὸ ὄνομά μου; καὶ αὐτό ἐστι θαυμαστόν. 19 καὶ ἔλαβε Μανωὲ τὸν ἔριφον τῶν αἰγῶν καὶ τὴν θυσίαν καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν ἐπὶ τήν πέτραν τῷ Κυρίῳ· καὶ διεχώρισε ποιῆσαι, καὶ Μανωὲ καὶ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ βλέποντες. 20 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἀναβῆναι τὴν φλόγα ἐπάνω τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου ἕως τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἀνέβη ὁ ἄγγελος Κυρίου ἐν τῇ φλογὶ τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου, καὶ Μανωὲ καὶ ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ βλέποντες καὶ ἔπεσαν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν. 21 καὶ οὐ προσέθηκεν ἔτι ὁ ἄγγελος Κυρίου ὀφθῆναι πρὸς Μανωὲ καὶ πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ· τότε ἔγνω Μανωὲ ὅτι ἄγγελος Κυρίου οὗτος. 22 καὶ εἶπε Μανωὲ πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ· θανάτῳ ἀποθανούμεθα, ὅτι Θεὸν εἴδομεν. 23 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ· εἰ ἤθελεν ὁ Κύριος θανατῶσαι ἡμᾶς, οὐκ ἂν ἔλαβεν ἐκ χειρὸς ἡμῶν ὁλοκαύτωμα καὶ θυσίαν καὶ οὐκ ἂν ἔδειξεν ἡμῖν ταῦτα πάντα καὶ καθὼς καιρὸς οὐκ ἂν ἠκούτισεν ἡμᾶς ταῦτα. 24 καὶ ἔτεκεν ἡ γυνὴ υἱὸν καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Σαμψών· καὶ ἡδρύνθη τὸ παιδάριον, καὶ εὐλόγησεν αὐτὸ Κύριος. 25 καὶ ἤρξατο πνεῦμα Κυρίου συνεκπορεύεσθαι αὐτῷ ἐν παρεμβολῇ Δὰν καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Σαραὰ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον ᾿Εσθαόλ.
