1 ثم عاد بنو اسرائيل يعملون الشر في عيني الرب فدفعهم الرب ليد الفلسطينيين اربعين سنة

2 وكان رجل من صرعة من عشيرة الدانيين اسمه منوح وامرأته عاقر لم تلد.

3 فتراءى ملاك الرب للمرأة وقال لها. ها انت عاقر لم تلدي. ولكنك تحبلين وتلدين ابنا.

4 والآن فاحذري ولا تشربي خمرا ولا مسكرا ولا تأكلي شيئا نجسا.

5 فها انك تحبلين وتلدين ابنا ولا يعل موسى رأسه لان الصبي يكون نذيرا لله من البطن وهو يبدأ يخلص اسرائيل من يد الفلسطينيين.

6 فدخلت المرأة وكلمت رجلها قائلة. جاء اليّ رجل الله ومنظره كمنظر ملاك الله مرهب جدا. ولم اسأله من اين هو ولا هو اخبرني عن اسمه.

7 وقال لي ها انت تحبلين وتلدين ابنا. والآن فلا تشربي خمرا ولا مسكرا ولا تأكلي شيئا نجسا. لان الصبي يكون نذيرا للّه من البطن الى يوم موته

8 فصلّى منوح الى الرب وقال اسألك يا سيدي ان يأتي ايضا الينا رجل الله الذي ارسلته ويعلمنا ماذا نعمل للصبي الذي يولد.

9 فسمع الله لصوت منوح فجاء ملاك الله ايضا الى المرأة وهي جالسة في الحقل ومنوح رجلها ليس معها.

10 فاسرعت المرأة وركضت واخبرت رجلها وقالت له هوذا قد تراءى لي الرجل الذي جاء اليّ ذلك اليوم.

11 فقام منوح وسار وراء امرأته وجاء الى الرجل وقال له أانت الرجل الذي تكلم مع المرأة. فقال انا هو.

12 فقال منوح. عند مجيء كلامك ماذا يكون حكم الصبي ومعاملته.

13 فقال ملاك الرب لمنوح. من كل ما قلت للمرأة فلتحتفظ.

14 من كل ما يخرج من جفنة الخمر لا تأكل وخمرا ومسكرا لا تشرب وكل نجس لا تأكل. لتحذر من كل ما اوصيتها

15 فقال منوح لملاك الرب دعنا نعوقك ونعمل لك جدي معزى.

16 فقال ملاك الرب لمنوح ولو عوقتني لا آكل من خبزك وان عملت محرقة فللرب اصعدها. لان منوح لم يعلم انه ملاك الرب.

17 فقال منوح لملاك الرب ما اسمك حتى اذا جاء كلامك نكرمك.

18 فقال له ملاك الرب لماذا تسأل عن اسمي وهو عجيب.

19 فاخذ منوح جدي المعزى والتقدمة واصعدهما على الصخرة للرب. فعمل عملا عجيبا ومنوح وامرأته ينظران.

20 فكان عند صعود اللهيب عن المذبح نحو السماء ان ملاك الرب صعد في لهيب المذبح ومنوح وامرأته ينظران فسقطا على وجهيهما الى الارض.

21 ولم يعد ملاك الرب يتراءى لمنوح وامرأته. حينئذ عرف منوح انه ملاك الرب.

22 فقال منوح لامرأته نموت موتا لاننا قد رأينا الله.

23 فقالت له امرأته لو اراد الرب ان يميتنا لما اخذ من يدنا محرقة وتقدمة ولما ارانا كل هذه ولما كان في مثل هذا الوقت اسمعنا مثل هذه.

24 فولدت المرأة ابنا ودعت اسمه شمشون. فكبر الصبي وباركه الرب.

25 وابتدأ روح الرب يحركه في محلّة دان بين صرعة واشتأول

Exploring the Meaning of Judges 13      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Judges 13: The birth of Samson.

Chapters 13-16 of Judges tell the story of Samson, one of the greatest judges of Israel. At the time of Samson’s birth, Israel had been under Philistine oppression for forty years, because they had once again sinned against the Lord. As we have seen in previous chapters, the Lord appears to have punished them, but this is not the case; it is really our own waywardness that brings about these negative consequences.

This story begins with Samson’s parents, Manoah and his wife. Manoah’s wife was barren, but the angel of the Lord appeared to her, with news that she would have a son. The angel said that she was forbidden to drink alcohol or eat anything unclean, and that her son was never to have his hair cut, for he would be a Nazirite. And finally, the angel prophesied that her son would deliver Israel from the Philistines.

When Manoah’s wife told him what had happened, he prayed to the Lord for the man to return. The angel reappeared to Manoah’s wife, so she brought her husband to speak with the angel directly. Manoah asked what they should do for their child, but the angel only told Manoah that his wife must follow the instructions she had received.

Manoah offered a meal to the angel of the Lord, but the angel declined, saying that the burnt offering must be made to the Lord. Manoah brought out the meat of a young goat, placed it upon a rock, and gave it as a burnt offering to the Lord. The angel of the Lord ascended in the flames toward heaven, and the couple knew that they had seen God.

In time, Samson was born, and the Lord blessed him.

*****

Samson’s name literally means “sun-like”. He was a mighty warrior, a womaniser, and a powerful character prone to sudden outbursts and rage, but his intention was to defend Israel and defeat the Philistines. He was strong in his acknowledgement of his people and his God.

Samson represents the Lord in His divine human, and also the power of the Word in its literal sense. This is why Samson had strength in the abundance of his hair (see Swedenbrog’s works, Doctrine of Sacred Scripture 49[2], and Arcana Caelestia 9836[2]).

Spiritually, barrenness stands for a lack of personal doctrine or a spiritual path, representing how life can feel before regeneration begins. The angel of the Lord appeared to just the woman at first, because the purpose of regeneration is primarily to make us love what is good (represented by a woman). We do this by knowing and obeying truth (represented by a man).

The Nazarites, who vowed not to drink or cut their hair, represented the Lord as the Word in its ultimate and fullest sense (see Swedenborg’s work, Apocalypse Revealed 47). These customs are the marks of a natural and genuine life, as wine can lead us astray, and focusing on appearances can lead to vanity. Above all, Samson’s uncut hair represented this greatness of divine truths from the Word (see Swedenborg’s work, True Christian Religion 214).

The angel was reluctant to tell Manoah and his wife details about their son’s future, except that he would be a Nazarite, and would deliver Israel. He intentionally kept them from knowing what would take place, because if they knew the future, they would no longer be able to act in freedom. Divine Providence - the Lord’s plan for our world - cannot be disclosed to us, or we would no longer live in freedom to make our own decisions (Arcana Caelestia 2493).

Manoah asked the angel what his name was, so he could be honored. However, the angel declined to tell them, as his name was wonderful. A name describes a person’s spiritual qualities, and we are unable to fathom the extent of heavenly qualities because they are of God.

The spiritual meaning of Manoah’s sacrifice comes from the correspondence of a young goat (innocence within the human soul) and the rock (truth). The young goat, placed on the rock as a sacrifice, represents worshipping from our hearts in faith to the Lord. This is the Lord’s requirement of us (Doctrine of Sacred Scripture 18[3] and Arcana Caelestia 9393).
