SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:18 Y el ángel del SEÑOR respondió: Â¿Por qué preguntas por mi nombre? No tengo licencia para decírtelo.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Judges 13:18 Verse 18. Seeing it is secret?] It was because it was secret that they wished to know it. The angel does not say that it was secret, but yalp awh hu peli it is WONDERFUL; the very character that is given to Jesus Christ, Isa. ix. 6: His name shall be called, alp Wonderful; and it is supposed by some that the angel gives this as his name, and consequently that he was our blessed Lord.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 18. And the angel of the Lord said unto him , etc.] Being so importunate, and pressing upon him; why askest thou thus after my name, seeing it is secret ? and not to be known; as his nature and essence as a divine Person, which may be meant by his name, is what passes knowledge, is infinite and incomprehensible; (see Proverbs 30:4) or “wonderful” f271 ; which is one of the names of Christ, and fitly agrees with him, who is wonderful in his person, as God and man; in his incarnation, in his offices and relations, in his love to his people, and in all he is unto them, and has done for them; (see Gill on “ Isaiah 9:6”).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 15-23 - What Manoah asked for instruction in his duty, he was readily told; but what he asked to gratify his curiosity, was denied. God has in his wor given full directions concerning our duty, but never designed to answe other questionings. There are secret things which belong not to us, of which we must be quite contented to be ignorant, while in this world The name of our Lord is wonderful and secret; but by his wonderfu works he makes himself known as far as is needful for us. Prayer is the ascent of the soul to God. But without Christ in the heart by faith our services are offensive smoke; in him, acceptable flame. We ma apply this to Christ's sacrifice of himself for us; he ascended in the flame of his own offering, for by his own blood he entered in once int the holy place, Heb 9:12. In Manoah's reflections there is great fear We shall surely die. In his wife's reflection there is great faith. A a help meet for him, she encouraged him. Let believers who have ha communion with God in the word and prayer, to whom he has graciousl manifested himself, and who have had reason to think God has accepte their works, take encouragement from thence in a cloudy and dark day God would not have done what he has done for my soul, if he ha designed to forsake me, and leave me to perish at last; for his work is perfect. Learn to reason as Manoah's wife; If God designed me to peris under his wrath, he would not give me tokens of his favour.
