Definitions for Judges 13 :15

Angel - Messenger.
Let - To hinder or obstruct.

Clarke's Commentary on Judges 13 :15

Until we shall have made ready a kid - Not knowing his quality, Manoah wished to do this as an act of hospitality.

Barnes's Commentary on Judges 13 :15

The language of Manoah, like that of Gideon Judges 6:18, seems to indicate some suspicion that his visitor was more than human. The word rendered "made ready," is also the proper word for "offering a sacrifice," and is so used by the Angel in the next verse. By which it appears that the Angel understood Manoah to speak of offering a kid as a burnt-offering. Hence, his caution, "thou must offer it unto the Lord." (Compare Revelation 19:10; Revelation 22:8; Acts 10:25-26.)

Wesley's Commentary on Judges 13 :15

13:15 Made ready - Supposing him to be a man and a prophet, to whom he would in this manner express his respect, as was usual to strangers.
