CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
2:11 Nazarites - Persons who bound themselves to a very sober and holy life; either for some certain time, or for their whole life.
"Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. "If any of the people, either men or women, take the special vow of a Nazirite, setting themselves apart to the LORD in a special way,
they must give up wine and other alcoholic drinks. They must not use vinegar made from wine or from other alcoholic drinks, they must not drink fresh grape juice, and they must not eat grapes or raisins.
I will raise up a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites. I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell the people everything I command him.
You will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and his hair must never be cut. For he will be dedicated to God as a Nazirite from birth. He will begin to rescue Israel from the Philistines."
From the day your ancestors left Egypt until now, I have continued to send my servants, the prophets--day in and day out.
