And it cameH1961 to pass at that time,H6256 that JudahH3063 wentH3381 downH3381 from his brothers,H251 and turnedH5186 in to a certainH376 Adullamite,H5726 whose nameH8034 was Hirah.H2437
And JudahH3063 sawH7200 thereH8033 a daughterH1323 of a certainH376 Canaanite,H3669 whose nameH8034 was Shuah;H7770 and he tookH3947 her, and wentH935 in to her.
And she conceived,H2029 and boreH3205 a son;H1121 and he calledH7121 his nameH8034 Er.H6147
And she conceivedH2029 again,H5750 and boreH3205 a son;H1121 and she calledH7121 his nameH8034 Onan.H209
And she yetH5750 againH5750 conceived,H3254 and boreH3205 a son;H1121 and calledH7121 his nameH8034 Shelah:H7956 and he was at Chezib,H3580 when she boreH3205 him.
And JudahH3063 tookH3947 a wifeH802 for ErH6147 his firstborn,H1060 whose nameH8034 was Tamar.H8559
And Er,H6147 Judah'sH3063 firstborn,H1060 was wickedH7451 in the sightH5869 of the LORD;H3068 and the LORDH3068 slewH4191 him.
And JudahH3063 saidH559 to Onan,H209 GoH935 in to your brother'sH251 wife,H802 and marryH2992 her, and raiseH6965 up seedH2233 to your brother.H251
And OnanH209 knewH3045 that the seedH2233 should not be his; and it cameH1961 to pass, whenH518 he wentH935 in to his brother'sH251 wife,H802 that he spilledH7843 it on the ground,H776 lestH1115 that he should giveH5414 seedH2233 to his brother.H251
And the thing whichH834 he didH6213 displeasedH7489 H5869 the LORD:H3068 why he slewH4191 him also.H1571
Then saidH559 JudahH3063 to TamarH8559 his daughterH3618 in law,H3618 RemainH3427 a widowH490 at your father'sH1 house,H1004 tillH5704 ShelahH7956 my sonH1121 be grown:H1431 for he said,H559 LestH6435 peradventure he dieH4191 also,H1571 as his brothersH251 did. And TamarH8559 wentH3212 and dwelledH3427 in her father'sH1 house.H1004
And in processH7235 of timeH3117 the daughterH1323 of ShuahH7770 Judah'sH3063 wifeH802 died;H4191 and JudahH3063 was comforted,H5162 and wentH5927 up to his sheep shearersH1494 H6629 to Timnath,H8553 he and his friendH7453 HirahH2437 the Adullamite.H5726
And it was toldH5046 Tamar,H8559 saying,H559 BeholdH2009 your fatherH2524 in lawH2524 goesH5927 up to TimnathH8553 to shearH1494 his sheep.H6629
And she putH5493 her widow'sH491 garmentsH899 offH5921 from her, and coveredH3680 her with a veil,H6809 and wrappedH5968 herself, and satH3427 in an openH5869 place,H6607 whichH834 is by the wayH1870 to Timnath;H8553 for she sawH7200 that ShelahH7956 was grown,H1431 and she was not givenH5414 to him to wife.H802
When JudahH3063 sawH7200 her, he thoughtH2803 her to be an harlot;H2181 becauseH3588 she had coveredH3680 her face.H6440
And he turnedH5186 to her by the way,H1870 and said,H559 GoH3051 to, I prayH4994 you, let me comeH935 in to you; (for he knewH3045 not that she was his daughterH3618 in law.H3618) And she said,H559 WhatH4100 will you giveH5414 me, that you may comeH935 in to me?
And he said,H559 I will sendH7971 you a kidH1423 from the flock.H6629 And she said,H559 Will you giveH5414 me a pledge,H6162 tillH5704 you sendH7971 it?
And he said,H559 WhatH834 pledgeH6162 shall I giveH5414 you? And she said,H559 Your signet,H2368 and your bracelets,H6616 and your staffH4294 that is in your hand.H3027 And he gaveH5414 it her, and cameH935 in to her, and she conceivedH2029 by him.
And she arose,H6965 and wentH3212 away, and laidH5493 by her veilH6809 from her, and putH3847 on the garmentsH899 of her widowhood.H491
And JudahH3063 sentH7971 the kidH1423 by the handH3027 of his friendH7453 the Adullamite,H5726 to receiveH3947 his pledgeH6162 from the woman'sH802 hand:H3027 but he foundH4672 her not.
Then he askedH7592 the menH582 of that place,H4725 saying,H559 WhereH346 is the harlot,H6948 that was openlyH5879 by the wayH1870 side? And they said,H559 There was noH3808 harlotH6948 in thisH2088 place.
And he returnedH7725 to Judah,H3063 and said,H559 I cannotH3808 findH4672 her; and alsoH1571 the menH582 of the placeH4725 said,H559 that there was noH3808 harlotH6948 in thisH2088 place.
And JudahH3063 said,H559 Let her takeH3947 it to her, lestH6435 we be shamed:H937 behold,H2009 I sentH7971 thisH2088 kid,H1423 and you have not foundH4672 her.
And it cameH1961 to pass about threeH7969 monthsH2320 after, that it was toldH5046 Judah,H3063 saying,H559 TamarH8559 your daughterH3618 in lawH3618 has played the harlot;H2181 and also,H1571 behold,H2009 she is with childH2030 by prostitution.H2183 And JudahH3063 said,H559 BringH3318 her forth,H3318 and let her be burnt.H8313
When she was broughtH3318 forth,H3318 she sentH7971 to her fatherH2524 in law,H2524 saying,H559 By the man,H376 whoseH834 theseH428 are, am I with child:H2030 and she said,H559 Discern,H5234 I prayH4994 you, whoseH834 are these,H428 the signet,H2858 and bracelets,H6616 and staff.H4294
And JudahH3063 acknowledgedH5234 them, and said,H559 She has been more righteousH6663 than I; becauseH3588 that I gaveH5414 her not to ShelahH7956 my son.H1121 And he knewH3045 her againH3254 noH3808 more.H5750
And it cameH1961 to pass in the timeH6256 of her travail,H3205 that, behold,H2009 twinsH8380 were in her womb.H990
And it cameH1961 to pass, when she travailed,H3205 that the one putH5414 out his hand:H3027 and the midwifeH3205 tookH3947 and boundH7194 on his handH3027 a scarletH8144 thread, saying,H559 ThisH2088 cameH3318 out first.H7223
And it cameH1961 to pass, as he drewH7725 backH7725 his hand,H3027 that, behold,H2009 his brotherH251 cameH3318 out: and she said,H559 HowH4100 have you brokenH6555 forth?H6556 this breachH6556 be on you: therefore his nameH8034 was calledH7121 Pharez.H6557
And afterwardH310 cameH3318 out his brother,H251 that had the scarletH8144 thread on his hand:H3027 and his nameH8034 was calledH7121 Zarah.H2226
