Genesis 30:32

אֶעֶבֹר בְּ כָל צֹאנְךָ הַ יֹּום הָסֵר מִ שָּׁם כָּל שֶׂה נָקֹד וְ טָלוּא וְ כָל שֶׂה חוּם בַּ כְּשָׂבִים וְ טָלוּא וְ נָקֹד בָּ עִזִּים וְ הָיָה שְׂכָרִי
I may cross through in the whole of your sheep the Hot-one, causing to turn aside from there the whole of a sheep marked* and him-who-is-spotted,* and the whole of a sheep warm* in the Lambs, and him-who-is-spotted and marked in the She-goats—and he has become my wages.

* This is a masculine singular passive participle of a verb. Strong’s #2921, tala. to patch, spot. A primitive root; properly, to cover with pieces; i.e. (by implication) to spot or variegate (as tapestry) -- clouted, with divers colours, spotted.
