What does Judges 13:10 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

Manoah's wife again tells him that she's encountered a divine messenger, whom she called "the man of God" (Judges 13:6). After the first appearance (Judges 13:2–5), Manoah prayed for God to send the same "angel of the LORD" (Judges 13:3) back to talk to both parents about how to raise the promised child.

Now Manoah's wife tells him the same man from the first appearance has arrived again. Whether she spoke with the figure, or not, Scripture does not say. All we know is that she ran to find Manoah; she clearly wants him to be involved in this incredible thing happening to her.
