Judges 13:22-23 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

22 said to his wife, “We will certainly die,[a] for we have seen God.” 23 But his wife said to him, “If the Lord had meant to kill us, he would not have accepted a burnt offering and grain offering from our hands! Nor would he have let us see all this, or hear what we have heard.”

Footnotes:

  1. 13:22 We will certainly die: seeing God face to face was believed to be fatal, as explained in note on 6:22, where Gideon’s reaction is similar to that of Manoah here.
