“When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draws near to deliver her husband out of the hand of him who strikes him, and puts forth her hand and takes him by the genitals, Bible other translations

“genitals.” The Hebrew word is from the root “shame,” and literally means “that excites shame” (or perhaps “that elicits shame”). Common translations are “genitals,” “private parts,” and “secret parts.”
