Genesis 38:18

Context
38:18 He said, “What pledge should I give you?” She replied, “Your seal, your cord, and the staff that’s in your hand.” So he gave them to her and had sex with her. 1  She became pregnant by him.

Genesis 38:25

Context
38:25 While they were bringing her out, she sent word 2  to her father-in-law: “I am pregnant by the man to whom these belong.” 3  Then she said, “Identify 4  the one to whom the seal, cord, and staff belong.”

1 tn Heb “and he went to her.” This expression is a euphemism for sexual intercourse.

2 tn Heb “she was being brought out and she sent.” The juxtaposition of two clauses, both of which place the subject before the predicate, indicates synchronic action.

3 tn Heb “who these to him.”

4 tn Or “ recognize; note.” This same Hebrew verb (נָכַר, nakhar) is used at the beginning of v. 26, where it is translated “recognized.”
