Angels, however, do not eat what human beings eat. Hence, they could not partake of the calf, and this worried Abraham. A guest who does not eat of the food given him causes worry. He makes his host nervous that he intends some kind of treachery. To this day, country people and Bedouins consider it a grave crime to act treacherously towards someone with whom they have shared food. Hence, if they refuse to eat someone’s food, their action suggests that they either intend to do harm or that they do not trust the host’s intentions. Hence, the messengers reveal their identity to Abraham and tell him about their mission.
