    Barnes' Notes on Judges 13:12

    Translate, "What shall be the manner (or ordering) of the child, and what shall be his work (or exploits)." The original message of the Angel had given information on these two points:

    (1) how the child was to be brought up, namely, as a Nazarite;

    (2) what he should do, namely, begin to deliver Israel.

    Manoah desires to have the information repeated (compare 1 Samuel 17:26-27, 1 Samuel 17:30). Accordingly, in Judges 13:13 the Angel refers to, and enlarges upon, his former injunctions.
