    Definitions for Judges 6:20

    Angel - Messenger.

    Clarke's Commentary on Judges 6:20

    Take the flesh, etc. - The angel intended to make the flesh and bread an offering to God, and the broth a libation.

    Barnes' Notes on Judges 6:20

    Pour out the broth - Libations were a very ancient form of offering (compare Genesis 35:14). The drink offerings of wine under the Levitical law were poured upon the altar Exodus 30:9. The pouring of the broth upon the rock was evidently of the nature of a libation. It might also, like the water poured by Elijah upon his sacrifice, make the miracle of the fire that consumed the sacrifice more apparent. (Compare 1 Kings 18:33.)
