Judges 13:16 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Then she hastened to fetch her husband, who first of all inquired of the person who had appeared, "Art thou the man who said to the woman" (sc., what has been related in Judges 13:3-5)? And when this was answered in the affirmative, he said still further (Judges 13:12), "Should thy word then come to pass, what will be the manner of the boy, and his doing?" The plural דּבריך is construed ad sensum with the singular verb, because the words form one promise, so that the expression is not to be taken distributively, as Rosenmller supposes. This also applies to Judges 13:17, Mishpat, the right belonging to a boy, i.e., the proper treatment of him.
