Genesis 38:29-30 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

29 But as he withdrew his hand, his brother came out; and she said, “What a breach you have made for yourself!” So he was called Perez.[a] 30 Afterward his brother, who had the crimson thread on his hand, came out; he was called Zerah.[b]

Footnotes:

  1. 38:29 He was called Perez: the Hebrew word means “breach.”
  2. 38:30 He was called Zerah: a name connected here by popular etymology with a Hebrew word for the red light of dawn, alluding apparently to the crimson thread.
