New Defender's Study Bible Notes

13:18 secret. The Hebrew word here for “secret” is the same as for “wonderful” in Isaiah 9:6: “His name shall be called Wonderful.” This angel of the LORD was actually the pre-incarnate Christ. This appearance was a theophany, an indication that God was preparing once again to deliver His people, this time from their forty-year subjugation to the pagan Philistines.
