1 καὶ προσέθεντο οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον κυρίου καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτοὺς κύριος ἐν χειρὶ ἀλλοφύλων τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη 2 καὶ ἐγένετο ἀνὴρ ἐκ Σαραα ἐκ τῆς φυλῆς τοῦ Δαν καὶ ὄνομα αὐτῷ Μανωε καὶ ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ στεῖρα καὶ οὐκ ἔτικτεν 3 καὶ ὤφθη ἄγγελος κυρίου πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτήν ἰδοὺ δὴ σὺ στεῖρα καὶ οὐ τέτοκας καὶ ἐν γαστρὶ ἕξεις καὶ τέξῃ υἱόν 4 καὶ νῦν φύλαξαι καὶ μὴ πίῃς οἶνον καὶ σικερα καὶ μὴ φάγῃς πᾶν ἀκάθαρτον 5 ὅτι ἰδοὺ σὺ ἐν γαστρὶ ἕξεις καὶ τέξῃ υἱόν καὶ οὐκ ἀναβήσεται σίδηρος ἐπὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἡγιασμένον ναζιραῖον ἔσται τῷ θεῷ τὸ παιδάριον ἐκ τῆς γαστρός καὶ αὐτὸς ἄρξεται σῴζειν τὸν Ισραηλ ἐκ χειρὸς ἀλλοφύλων 6 καὶ ἦλθεν ἡ γυνὴ καὶ εἶπεν τῷ ἀνδρὶ αὐτῆς λέγουσα ὅτι ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ἦλθεν πρός με καὶ ἡ ὅρασις αὐτοῦ ὡς ὅρασις ἀγγέλου τοῦ θεοῦ ἐπιφανὴς σφόδρα καὶ ἠρώτων πόθεν ἐστίν καὶ τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἀπήγγειλέν μοι 7 καὶ εἶπέν μοι ἰδοὺ σὺ ἐν γαστρὶ ἕξεις καὶ τέξῃ υἱόν καὶ νῦν μὴ πίῃς οἶνον καὶ σικερα καὶ μὴ φάγῃς πᾶσαν ἀκαθαρσίαν ὅτι ναζιραῖον θεοῦ ἔσται τὸ παιδάριον ἀπὸ τῆς γαστρὸς ἕως ἡμέρας θανάτου αὐτοῦ 1 Then, once again, the sons of Israel defied the Lord, and for forty years he left them at the mercy of the Philistines. 2 There was a certain tribesman of Dan called Manue, who lived at Saraa, and had a wife that bore him no children. 3 To her the Lord’s angel appeared, and said, Poor barren one, poor childless one, thou art to conceive, and bear a son. 4 See to it that no wine or strong drink, no unclean food passes thy lips, 5 for this son whom thou art to conceive and bear is to be a Nazirite from his birth; even when he is a child, no razor must come near his head. And he shall strike the first blow to deliver Israel from the power of the Philistines. 6 So when she met her husband she told him, I have been speaking with a messenger from God, who might have been an angel, such awe his look inspired in me. Who he was, his home, his name, he would not tell, 7 but the message he gave me was that I should conceive, and have a son. And I must abstain from wine and all strong drink, and from all unclean food, because this son of mine was to be a Nazirite from his childhood up, bound to the Lord by his vow from the day of his birth to the day of his death. 1 Rursumque filii Israël fecerunt malum in conspectu Domini: qui tradidit eos in manus Philisthinorum quadraginta annis. 2 Erat autem quidam vir de Saraa, et de stirpe Dan, nomine Manue, habens uxorem sterilem. 3 Cui apparuit angelus Domini, et dixit ad eam: Sterilis es et absque liberis: sed concipies, et paries filium. 4 Cave ergo ne bibas vinum ac siceram, nec immundum quidquam comedas: 5 quia concipies, et paries filium, cujus non tanget caput novacula: erit enim nazaræus Dei ab infantia sua et ex matris utero, et ipse incipiet liberare Israël de manu Philisthinorum. 6 Quæ cum venisset ad maritum suum, dixit ei: Vir Dei venit ad me, habens vultum angelicum, terribilis nimis. Quem cum interrogassem quis esset, et unde venisset, et quo nomine vocaretur, noluit mihi dicere: 7 sed hoc respondit: Ecce concipies et paries filium: cave ne vinum bibas, nec siceram, et ne aliquo vescaris immundo: erit enim puer nazaræus Dei ab infantia sua, ex utero matris suæ usque ad diem mortis suæ.
8 καὶ ἐδεήθη Μανωε τοῦ κυρίου καὶ εἶπεν ἐν ἐμοί κύριε ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ὃν ἀπέστειλας πρὸς ἡμᾶς ἐλθέτω δὴ πρὸς ἡμᾶς καὶ φωτισάτω ἡμᾶς τί ποιήσωμεν τῷ παιδαρίῳ τῷ τικτομένῳ 9 καὶ ἐπήκουσεν ὁ θεὸς τῆς φωνῆς Μανωε καὶ παρεγένετο ὁ ἄγγελος τοῦ θεοῦ ἔτι πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτῆς καθημένης ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ καὶ Μανωε ὁ ἀνὴρ αὐτῆς οὐκ ἦν με{T'} αὐτῆς 10 καὶ ἐτάχυνεν ἡ γυνὴ καὶ ἐξέδραμεν καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν τῷ ἀνδρὶ αὐτῆς καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν ἰδοὺ ὦπταί μοι ὁ ἀνὴρ ὁ ἐλθὼν πρός με τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ 11 καὶ ἀνέστη Μανωε καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὀπίσω τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ εἰ σὺ εἶ ὁ ἀνὴρ ὁ λαλήσας πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄγγελος ἐγώ 12 καὶ εἶπεν Μανωε νῦν δὴ ἐλθόντος τοῦ ῥήματός σου τί ἔσται τὸ κρίμα τοῦ παιδαρίου καὶ τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ 13 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄγγελος κυρίου πρὸς Μανωε ἀπὸ πάντων ὧν εἶπα πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα φυλαξάσθω 14 ἀπὸ πάντων ὅσα ἐκπορεύεται ἐξ ἀμπέλου οὐ φάγεται καὶ οἶνον καὶ σικερα μὴ πιέτω καὶ πᾶν ἀκάθαρτον μὴ φαγέτω πάντα ὅσα ἐνετειλάμην αὐτῇ φυλαξάσθω 15 καὶ εἶπεν Μανωε πρὸς τὸν ἄγγελον κυρίου βιασώμεθα δή σε καὶ ποιήσομεν ἐνώπιόν σου ἔριφον αἰγῶν 16 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄγγελος κυρίου πρὸς Μανωε ἐὰν βιάσῃ με οὐ φάγομαι τῶν ἄρτων σου καὶ ἐὰν ποιήσῃς ὁλοκαύτωμα κυρίῳ ἀνοίσεις αὐτό ὅτι οὐκ ἔγνω Μανωε ὅτι ἄγγελος κυρίου ἐστίν 17 καὶ εἶπεν Μανωε πρὸς τὸν ἄγγελον κυρίου τί ὄνομά σοι ἵνα ὅταν ἔλθῃ τὸ ῥῆμά σου δοξάσωμέν σε 18 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ ἄγγελος κυρίου ἵνα τί τοῦτο ἐρωτᾷς τὸ ὄνομά μου καὶ αὐτό ἐστιν θαυμαστόν 19 καὶ ἔλαβεν Μανωε τὸν ἔριφον τῶν αἰγῶν καὶ τὴν θυσίαν καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν ἐπὶ τὴν πέτραν τῷ κυρίῳ τῷ θαυμαστὰ ποιοῦντι κυρίῳ καὶ Μανωε καὶ ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ ἐθεώρουν 20 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἀναβῆναι τὴν φλόγα ἐπάνωθεν τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ ἀνέβη ὁ ἄγγελος κυρίου ἐν τῇ φλογί καὶ Μανωε καὶ ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ ἐθεώρουν καὶ ἔπεσον ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν 21 καὶ οὐ προσέθηκεν ἔτι ὁ ἄγγελος κυρίου ὀφθῆναι πρὸς Μανωε καὶ πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ τότε ἔγνω Μανωε ὅτι ἄγγελος κυρίου ἐστίν 22 καὶ εἶπεν Μανωε πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ θανάτῳ ἀποθανούμεθα ὅτι θεὸν ἑωράκαμεν 23 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ εἰ ἐβούλετο κύριος θανατῶσαι ἡμᾶς οὐκ ἂν ἐδέξατο ἐκ τῶν χειρῶν ἡμῶν ὁλοκαύτωμα καὶ θυσίαν καὶ οὐκ ἂν ἐφώτισεν ἡμᾶς πάντα ταῦτα καὶ οὐκ ἂν ἀκουστὰ ἐποίησεν ἡμῖν ταῦτα 24 καὶ ἔτεκεν ἡ γυνὴ υἱὸν καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Σαμψων καὶ ηὐλόγησεν αὐτὸν κύριος καὶ ηὐξήθη τὸ παιδάριον 25 καὶ ἤρξατο πνεῦμα κυρίου συμπορεύεσθαι αὐτῷ ἐν παρεμβολῇ Δαν ἀνὰ μέσον Σαραα καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Εσθαολ 8 Thereupon Manue entreated the Lord to send his messenger again, and tell them how this child, once born, should be nurtured. 9 And the Lord granted his prayer; once more the angel of God appeared to his wife, as she sat resting in a field. Her husband was not with her, and she, upon sight of the angel, 10 ran off to fetch him; He has come back, she told him, the man I saw a few days since. 11 So he rose and followed her, and asked the angel whether it was he that had brought the message to his wife; Yes, he said, it was I. 12 Tell me, then, said Manue, when thy promise is fulfilled, what life is the boy to lead, what things are they he must shun? 13 But the angel of the Lord answered, Enough that thy wife should observe the warnings I gave her,[1] 14 eating nothing that grows in the vineyard, drinking no wine or strong drink, abstaining from all unclean food; these commands of mine she must carry out faithfully. 15 And now Manue said to the angel of the Lord, Pray do me one favour; allow us to cook a kid for thy eating. 16 Detain me if thou wilt, said the angel, but of thy food I must not eat; offer burnt-sacrifice, if thou wilt, to the Lord. And still Manue did not recognize that it was the Lord’s angel; 17 What is thy name? he asked. If thy words come true, we would fain give thee some token of gratitude. 18 My name? said he. Do not ask my name; it is a high mystery. 19 So Manue brought the kid, and a bread-offering with it, and laid it on the rock, presenting it before the Lord; and mystery indeed there was, before the eyes of Manue and his wife;[2] 20 as flames went up to heaven from the altar, the angel of the Lord went up too, there amid the flames. 21 At the sight, Manue and his wife fell down face to earth. Now that he had disappeared from their view, Manue knew him for what he was, 22 and said to his wife, This is certain death; we have seen the Lord. 23 Nay, answered his wife, if the Lord meant us harm, he would not have accepted our sacrifice and our bread-offering; he would not have shewn us this marvellous sight, nor told us what is to befall. 24 And so she bore a son, and called him Samson. As the lad grew, the Lord’s blessing was on him. 25 It was at the Encampment of Dan, between Saraa and Esthaol, that the spirit of the Lord first visited him. 8 Oravit itaque Manue Dominum, et ait: Obsecro, Domine, ut vir Dei, quem misisti, veniat iterum, et doceat nos quid debeamus facere de puero, qui nasciturus est. 9 Exaudivitque Dominus deprecantem Manue, et apparuit rursum angelus Dei uxori ejus sedenti in agro: Manue autem maritus ejus non erat cum ea. Quæ cum vidisset angelum, 10 festinavit, et cucurrit ad virum suum: nuntiavitque ei, dicens: Ecce apparuit mihi vir, quem ante videram. 11 Qui surrexit, et secutus est uxorem suam: veniensque ad virum, dixit ei: Tu es qui locutus es mulieri? Et ille respondit: Ego sum. 12 Cui Manue: Quando, inquit, sermo tuus fuerit expletus, quid vis ut faciat puer? aut a quo se observare debebit? 13 Dixitque angelus Domini ad Manue: Ab omnibus, quæ locutus sum uxori tuæ, abstineat se, 14 et quidquid ex vinea nascitur, non comedat: vinum et siceram non bibat; nullo vescatur immundo: et quod ei præcepi, impleat atque custodiat. 15 Dixitque Manue ad angelum Domini: Obsecro te ut acquiescas precibus meis, et faciamus tibi hædum de capris. 16 Cui respondit angelus: Si me cogis, non comedam panes tuos: si autem vis holocaustum facere, offer illud Domino. Et nesciebat Manue quod angelus Domini esset. 17 Dixitque ad eum: Quod est tibi nomen, ut, si sermo tuus fuerit expletus, honoremus te? 18 Cui ille respondit: Cur quæris nomen meum, quod est mirabile? 19 Tulit itaque Manue hædum de capris, et libamenta, et posuit super petram, offerens Domino, qui facit mirabilia: ipse autem et uxor ejus intuebantur. 20 Cumque ascenderet flamma altaris in cælum, angelus Domini pariter in flamma ascendit. Quod cum vidissent Manue et uxor ejus, proni ceciderunt in terram, 21 et ultra eis non apparuit angelus Domini. Statimque intellexit Manue angelum Domini esse, 22 et dixit ad uxorem suam: Morte moriemur, quia vidimus Deum. 23 Cui respondit mulier: Si Dominus nos vellet occidere, de manibus nostris holocaustum et libamenta non suscepisset, nec ostendisset nobis hæc omnia, neque ea quæ sunt ventura dixisset. 24 Peperit itaque filium, et vocavit nomen ejus Samson. Crevitque puer, et benedixit ei Dominus. 25 Cœpitque spiritus Domini esse cum eo in castris Dan inter Saraa et Esthaol.
