When she [was] brought forth
From her father's house, not to the place of execution, or in order to be burnt, but to the court of judicature, in order to take tier trial: she sent to her father in law, saying, by the man whose these [are,
am] I with child;
she sent a messenger to him, and by him the signet, bracelets, and staff, be they what they may, she had received from him as a pledge for the kid he promised her; and ordered the messenger to say, at the same time he showed him these things, that she was with child by the person to whom they belonged; which was a very modest way of laying it to his charge, and yet very striking and convincing: and she said;
by the messenger she sent: discern, I pray thee, whose [are] these, the signet, and bracelets, and
which were the things given her as a pledge till she received the kid, the hire she was to have for his lying with her.
