John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 13:23

Nor would, &c. — This expression seems to have some emphasis in it, to enhance God's mercy to them, as being afforded them in a time of such grievous calamity; and in a time when the word of the lord was precious; and there was no open vision.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Judges 13:23

But his wife said unto him, If the LORD were pleased to kill us, he would not have received a (k) burnt offering and a meat offering at our hands, neither would he have shewed us all these [things], nor would as at this time have told us [such things] as these.

(k) These graces that we have received from God, and his accepting of our obedience, are sure tokens of his love for us, so that nothing can hurt us.
