38:29 He pulled his hand back, and then his brother came out. 'You have asserted yourself with such pushiness (peretz)!' she said. [Judah] named the child Peretz.
Vayehi kemeshiv yado vehineh yatsa achiv vatomer mah-paratsta aleycha parets vayikra shmo Parets.
38:30 His brother, with the crimson thread on his hand, was then born. [Judah] named him Zerach.
Ve'achar yatsa achiv asher al-yado hashani vayikra shemo Zarach.
