Manoah

Manoah (Muh-noh´uh)

Samson’s father, a Danite from Zorah. The narrative of the events surrounding Samson’s birth (Judg 13:2-25) depicts Manoah as incredulous and slow-witted in comparison to his wife (Judg 13:8, Judg 13:11, Judg 13:20-23). According to the Bible, Manoah’s tomb lies between Zorah and Eshtaol (Judg 16:31), some fifteen miles east of Jerusalem.
