Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Manoah then asked his name: שׁמך מי, lit., "Who is thy name?" מי inquires after the person; מה, the nature of quality (see Ewald, 325, a.). "For if thy word come to pass, we will do thee honour." This was the reason why he asked after his name. כּבּד, to honour by presents, so as to show one's self grateful (see Numbers 22:17, Numbers 22:37; Numbers 24:11).
