30:32 I will go through all your flocks [with you] today. Remove every lamb that is spotted or streaked, every sheep that has dark markings. [Also remove] every goat that is streaked or spotted. It is with that kind that I will be paid.
E'evor bechol-tsoncha hayom haser misham kol-seh nakod vetalu vechol-seh-chum baksavim vetalu venakod ba'izim vahayah sechari.
