The Hebrew word of the week is yalad, meaning to bear, beget, or bring forth. Two derivatives of this word occur in the first verse of parashat Toldot:
And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham begat Isaac (Gen. 25:19)
I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. (Psalm 2:7)
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace (Isa 9:6).
Note:Yalad (×™Ö¸×œÖ·×“) is generally used to a woman who gives birth to a child, the birthing process, etc., though by extension the word is applied to the father as well. The Hebrew verb harah (×”Ö¸×¨Ö¸×”) is used to refer to conception or the gestation process. The two verbs are used together in Gen 21:2: "And Sarah conceived and bore (×•Ö·×ªÖ¼Ö·×”Ö·×¨ ×•Ö·×ªÖ¼Öµ×œÖ¶×“) Abraham a son in his old age at the time of which God had spoken to him."
