1 Ja Israelin lapset tekivät vielä pahaa Herran edessä, ja Herra antoi heidät Philistealaisten käsiin neljäksikymmeneksi ajastajaksi.

2 Mutta yksi mies oli Zorasta Danin sukukunnasta, Manoak nimeltä, ja hänen emäntänsä oli hedelmätöin ja ei synnyttänyt.

3 Ja Herran enkeli ilmestyi vaimolle ja sanoi hänelle: katso, sinä olet nyt hedelmätöin ja et synnyttänyt; mutta sinun pitää siittämän ja synnyttämän pojan.

4 Niin karta nyt, ettes juo viinaa eli väkevää juomaa ja ettes mitään saastaista syö.

5 Sillä katso, sinä tulet raskaaksi ja synnytät pojan, jonka pään päälle ei pidä yksikään partaveitsi tuleman; sillä se lapsi pitää oleman Jumalan natsir äitinsä kohdusta, ja hän rupee vapahtamaan Israelia Philistealaisten kädestä.

6 Niin tuli vaimo ja ilmoitti sen miehellensä ja sanoi: Jumalan mies tuli minun tyköni, ja hän oli näkyänsä niinkuin Jumalan enkeli sangen peljättävä, ja en minä häntä kysynyt, kusta hän oli, eikä hänkään nimeänsä ilmoittanut minulle.

7 Mutta hän sanoi minulle: katso, sinä tulet hedelmälliseksi ja synnytät pojan: älä siis nyt juo viinaa taikka väkevää juomaa, älä myös syö mitään saastaista; sillä se lapsi pitää oleman Jumalan natsir äitinsä kohdusta niin kuolemaansa asti.

8 Ja Manoak rukoili Herraa ja sanoi: ah minun Herrani! anna sen Jumalan miehen, jonkas lähetit, tulla meidän tykömme jälleen, että hän meitä opettais, mitä meidän tekemän pitää lapselle, joka syntyvä on.

9 Ja Jumala kuuli Manoakin äänen: ja Jumalan enkeli tuli jälleen vaimon tykö, ja hän istui kedolla ja hänen miehensä Manoak ei ollut hänen kanssansa.

10 Niin hän kiiruusti juoksi ja tiettäväksi teki sen miehellensä, ja sanoi hänelle: katso, se mies, joka ennen tuli minun tyköni, on minulle ilmestynyt.

11 Manoak nousi ja seurasi emäntäänsä ja tuli miehen tykö ja sanoi hänelle: oletkos se mies, joka puhuttelit vaimoa? Hän sanoi: olen.

12 Ja Manoak sanoi: kuin nyt tapahtuu, mitä sanonut olet: minkäkaltaiset pitää lapsen tavat ja hänen työnsä oleman?

13 Herran enkeli sanoi Manoakille: vaimon pitää karttaman kaikkia niitä, mitä hänelle sanonut olen.

14 Ei hänen pidä syömän siitä, mikä viinapuusta tullut on, ja ei hänen pidä viinaa taikka väkevää juomaa juoman eikä mitään saastaista syömän: kaikki kuin minä hänelle käskin, pitää hänen pitämän.

15 Manoak sanoi Herran enkelille: Jospa tahtoisit viipyä, me valmistamme sinulle vohlan.

16 Mutta Herran enkeli vastasi Manoakille: Vaikkas saisitkin minun viipymään, en minä kuitenkaan söisi sinun leipääs, mutta jos tahdot uhrata polttouhria, niin uhraa se Herralle; sillä ei Manoak tietänyt sitä Herran enkeliksi.

17 Ja Manoak sanoi Herran enkelille: mikä sinun nimes on, että me sinua ylistäisimme, kuin se tapahtuu, minkä sanonut olet?

18 Herran enkeli sanoi hänelle: miksis kysyt minun nimeäni, joka ihmeellinen on?

19 Niin otti Manoak vohlan ja ruokauhrin ja uhrasi sen kallion päällä Herralle, ja hän teki ihmeen; mutta Manoak emäntinensä näki sen.

20 Ja tapahtui, kuin liekki nousi alttarilta taivaaseen päin, meni Herran enkeli myös ylös alttarin liekissä. Ja Manoak emäntinensä näki sen, ja lankesivat kasvoillensa maahan.

21 Ja ei Herran enkeli enää näkynyt Manoakille ja hänen emännällensä. Niin ymmärsi Manoak sen Herran enkeliksi.

22 Ja Manoak sanoi emännällensä: totisesti me kuolemme, että näimme Jumalan.

23 Mutta hänen emäntänsä vastasi häntä: jos Herra olis tahtonut meidät tappaa, niin ei hän olisi ottanut polttouhria ja ruokauhria vastaan meidän kädestämme, eikä olisi osoittanut meille kaikkia näitä, eikä myös antanut meidän näitä kuulla, niinkuin tapahtunut on.

24 Ja vaimo synnyti pojan ja kutsui hänen Simson; ja lapsi kasvoi, ja Herra siunasi häntä.

25 Ja Herran henki rupesi vaikuttamaan hänessä Danin leirissä, Zoran ja Estaolin välillä.

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).
