Bible: Genesis 38:27-30

38:27 When it was time for her to give birth, there were twins in her womb. 38:28 While she was giving birth, one child 1  put out his hand, and the midwife took a scarlet thread and tied it on his hand, saying, “This one came out first.” 38:29 But then he drew back his hand, and his brother came out before him. 2  She said, “How you have broken out of the womb!” 3  So he was named Perez. 4  38:30 Afterward his brother came out – the one who had the scarlet thread on his hand – and he was named Zerah. 5
