1 And my father answered the sovereign saying, My sovereign, I am guilty.

2 For because of my tender feelings toward my son, I did substitute for him the son of my concubine who was born on the same night.

3 The sovereign’s wrath mounted and in his anger he cried, Who advised thee to do this thing?

4 Surely that man shall die.

5 My father, being terrified at the sovereigns’ anger said, It was my son Haran who so advised me.

6 Now Haran had not advised my father of anything, but the Ruaḥ of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 had wrought upon my father that he was loathe to give me up to the sovereign.

7 Nevertheless, Haran was privy to what my father had done and Haran was one of the believers in the true Elohim of the shamayim, but his heart was not firm nor his faith sure.

8 Wherefore, Haran said in his heart, If Aḇram be delivered from the furnace, then shall I know that the Elohim of Aḇram is indeed the true Elohim.

9 Wherefore, Haran wavered in his faith and his confidence waxed not great in the Most High Elohim, but my confidence was secure, for I knew that it rested upon the Rock of my deliverance and that the Word of Elohim faileth not.
