(5748) Rashi (38:20): "the one upon whose hand was the crimson thread" . The necessity that according to the simple understanding of the verse, the four hands that are written here correspond to the four devoted things that Achan trespassed with  (or the four things that he took) and the necessity for the two explanations
Rashi: the one upon whose hand was the crimson thread: Four hands are written here, corresponding to the four devoted things (charamim) by which Achan, who was descended from him (Zerah), committed a trespass. Some say that they correspond to the four things that he took: a Babylonish garment, two pieces of silver weighing two hundred shekels, and a wedge of gold (Jos. 7:21) (Gen. Rabbah 85:14).
