of the L
her by a spring
in the wilderness
, by the spring
on the way
the Angel of the L
found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, on the road to [Egypt by way of] Shur.
Amplified 2015 Translator's Notes:
Literal renderings, alternate translations or explanations.
This is the first occurrence of "Angel of the L
" in Scripture. The Hebrew word for "angel" means "messenger" (an angel of God is a special messenger from God who speaks for and is closely identified with Him) and context determines whether the messenger is an angel or a human. The same is true for Greek, and the word "angel" is an English form (transliteration) of the Gr
Angel of the L
can be a special case, however. Many Bible scholars believe that this
may be a theophany, that is, a physical manifestation of God, in which case the word
is capitalized. The
Angel of the L
may, based on context, be the pre-incarnate Christ, the Son of God.
