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.

* Strong’s #2345, hum. Literally warm, Darkened, swaryour. From an unused root meaning to be warm, i.e. (by implication) sunburnt or swaryour (blackish) – brown according to Strong’s but Hebrew does not have proper words for colors.
