 24:10
 24:11
24:10 The son of an Israelite woman and an Egyptian man went out among the Israelites and the Israelite woman's son had a quarrel with an Israelite man in the camp.
Vayetse ben-ishah Isre'elit vehu ben-ish Mitsri betoch beney Yisra'el vayinatsu bamachaneh ben ha'Isre'elit ve'ish ha'Isre'eli.
24:11 The Israelite woman's son then blasphemed God's name with a curse. The [people] brought him to Moses. His mother's name was Shelomith daughter of Divri, of the tribe of Dan.
Vayikov ben-ha'ishah ha'Isre'elit et-hashem vayekalel vayavi'u oto el-Moshe veshem imo Shlomit bat-Divri lemateh-Dan.
