John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 13:20

The altar — That is, from that part of the rock which served instead of an altar, upon which the sacrifice was laid. Ascended — To manifest his nature and essence to be spiritual. Fell — Partly in reverence to that glorious presence manifested in so wonderful a manner: and partly, out of a religious horror and fear of death; for the prevention thereof they fell down in way of supplication to God.
