Genesis 30:42

And in causing to envelop990 the Sheep he is not setting them; and he has become the Enveloped Ones991 to White, and the Tied Ones992 to Heel.



Hebrew הָעֲטֻפִים֙ The Atuphim. The Hebrew ataph (#5848) means to cover or shroud. “Feeble” is a poor translation. A primitive root; to shroud, i.e. Clothe (whether transitive or reflex.); hence (from the idea of darkness) to languish -- cover (over), fail, faint, feebler, hide self, be overwhelmed, swoon.
