Genesis 38:29

Ὡς δὲ ἐπισυνήγαγεν τὴν χεῖρα, καὶ εὐθὺς ἐξῆλθεν ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ. ἡ δὲ εἶπεν· Τί διεκόπη διὰ σὲ φραγμός; καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Φαρες.

But when he drew back the hand, then immediately his brother came out. Then she said, “Why has the (womb) barrier been broken off because of you?” And she called his name Phares.

ויהי כמשׁיב ידו והנה יצא אחיו ותאמר מה־פרצת עליך פרץ ויקרא שׁמו פרץ׃


* barrier = of part of a womb holding a foetus within
* broken off OR cut through OR terminated
