Genesis Chapter 38

1And he is becoming in the Time of Himself,* and Cast is descending from אֶת-his brothers, and is stretching-out toward a man, an Adullamite, whose name is Whitened.* 2And Cast is seeing there a built-one of a man, a Humbled, and his name is Wealth,* and he is taking her, and is coming in toward her. 3And she is conceiving and bearing a builder, and he is calling-out אֶת-his name Awake.*

4And she is conceiving again, and bearing a builder, and is calling-out אֶת-his name Powerful.* 5And she is adding* again, and bearing a builder, and is calling-out אֶת-his name Petition.* And he has become in Lie* in her bearing אֶת-him.

6And Cast is taking a woman to Awake, his first-born, and her name is Palm-Tree.* 7And he is becoming Awake, first-born of Cast, ruinous in the eyes of Yahweh, and Yahweh is causing him to die. 8And Cast is saying to Powerful, `Come in toward the woman of your brother, and yabam* אֶת-her, and cause to stand up a seed to your brother.` 9And Powerful is perceiving that the Seed is not becoming to-himself. And he has become when he has come in toward the woman of his brother, that he has laid-waste earth-ward, lest to give a seed to his brother. 10And he is ruinous in the eyes of Yahweh which he has made, and he is causing to die also אֶת-him.

11And Cast is saying to Palm-Tree his kallah,* `Sit bound-one* in the house of your father until Petition my builder is growing-great.` For he said, `Lest he is dying—also himself—like his brothers.` And Palm-Tree is walking, and she is sitting in the house of her father.

12And the Days are abounding, and the built-one of Powerful, woman of Cast, is dying. And Cast is being consoled, and he is ascending upon those-who-shear his sheep, himself and Whitened his friend the Adullamite, Portion-ward.* 13And he is fronted to Palm-Tree, to say, `Behold, your cham* is he-who-ascends Portion-ward to shear his sheep.`

14And she is causing to turn aside the treacherous-garments of her bound-one* from upon her, and she is covering in the Wrapping,* and is wrapping herself, and is sitting in the opening of Eyes,* which is upon the road Portion-ward, for she has seen that Petition has grown, and himself has not been given to-himself to a woman.

15And Cast is seeing her, and is weaving her for a harlot,* for she has covered her faces. 16And he is stretching-out toward her, toward the Road, and is saying, `Give, now, I am coming in toward you.` For he has not perceived that himself is his kallah. And she is saying, `What are you giving to-myself, that you are coming in toward me?` 17And he is saying, `Myself is sending a kid of the goats from the Sheep.` And she is saying, `Are you giving a mixed-one* until you are sending?` 18And he is saying, `What is the Pledge that I am giving to-yourself?` And she is saying, `Your seal, and your thread, and your staff* which is in your hand.` And he is giving to-herself, and is coming in toward her, and she is conceiving to-himself.

19And she is standing up, and is walking, and turning aside her wrapping from upon her, and is clothing herself treacherous-garments of her bound-one. 20And Cast is sending אֶת-the kid of the Goats in the hand of his friend the Adullamite, to take the Pledge from the hand of the Woman, and he has not found her.

21And he is asking the mortal-men of her standing-place, to say, `Where is the Holy-one*, himself is in the Eyes, upon the Road?` And they are saying, `She has not become in this one a holy-one.`

22And he is turning back toward Cast, and is saying, `I have not found her, and also the mortal-men of the Standing-place also have said, She has not become in this one a holy-one.` 23And Cast is saying, `She is taking to-herself, lest we are becoming to a despised-one; behold, I have sent the Kid of This one, and yourself has not found her.`

24And he is as from three new-ones, and he is being fronted to Cast, to say, `Palm-Tree, your kallah has harloted, and also, behold a pregnant-one to harloting-ones.`* And Cast is saying, `Cause her to go out, and she is being burned.` 25Himself is she-who-is-caused-to-go-out, and herself has sent toward her cham, to say, `To a man whose these ones are ­to-himself, myself is a pregnant-one.` And she is saying, `Recognize, now, to whom the Seal, and the Threads, and the Staff are These ones.`

26And Cast is recognizing and is saying, `She has been justified from myself, for upon an upright I have not given her to Petition, my builder.` And he has not added again to perceive her.

27And he is in the time of her bearing, and behold, double-ones are in her belly.

28And he is in her bearing, and he is giving a hand, and the One-who-bears is taking and is tying* upon his hand a scarlet-one,* to say, `This one has gone out a first one.`

29And he is becoming like one-who-turns-back his hand, and behold, his brother has gone out, and she is saying, `How have you broken out? Upon you is a breakout.` And he is calling-out his name Breakout.* 30And the back of his brother has gone out, which upon his hand is the Scarlet one, and he is calling-out his name Risen.*
