Chapter 38

  1. 1. And it came to pass at that time,
    H6256
    that Judah
    H3063
    went down
    H3381
    from his brethren,
    H251
    and turned
    H5186
    in to a certain
    H376
    Adullamite,
    H5726
    whose name
    H8034
    was Hirah.
    H2437
  2. 2. And Judah
    H3063
    saw
    H7200
    there a daughter
    H1323
    of a certain
    H376
    Canaanite,
    H3669
    whose name
    H8034
    was Shuah;
    H7770
    and he took her,
    H3947
    and went in
    H935
    unto her.
  3. 3. And she conceived,
    H2029
    and bare
    H3205
    a son;
    H1121
    and he called
    H7121
    his name
    H8034
    Er.
    H6147
  4. 4. And she conceived
    H2029
    again, and bare
    H3205
    a son;
    H1121
    and she called
    H7121
    his name
    H8034
    Onan.
    H209
  5. 5. And she yet again conceived,
    H3254
    and bare
    H3205
    a son;
    H1121
    and called
    H7121
    his name
    H8034
    Shelah:
    H7956
    and he was at Chezib,
    H3580
    when she bare
    H3205
    him.
  6. 6. And Judah
    H3063
    took
    H3947
    a wife
    H802
    for Er
    H6147
    his firstborn,
    H1060
    whose name
    H8034
    was Tamar.
    H8559
  7. 7. And Er,
    H6147
    Judah's
    H3063
    firstborn,
    H1060
    was wicked
    H7451
    in the sight
    H5869
    of the LORD;
    H3068
    and the LORD
    H3068
    slew
    H4191
    him.
  8. 8. And Judah
    H3063
    said
    H559
    unto Onan,
    H209
    Go in
    H935
    unto thy brother's
    H251
    wife,
    H802
    and marry
    H2992
    her, and raise up
    H6965
    seed
    H2233
    to thy brother.
    H251
  9. 9. And Onan
    H209
    knew
    H3045
    that the seed
    H2233
    should not be his; and it came to pass, when
    H518
    he went in
    H935
    unto his brother's
    H251
    wife,
    H802
    that he spilled
    H7843
    it on the ground,
    H776
    lest
    H1115
    that he should give
    H5414
    seed
    H2233
    to his brother.
    H251
  10. 10. And the thing which
    H834
    he did
    H6213
    displeased
    H3415
    H5869
    the LORD:
    H3068
    wherefore he slew
    H4191
    him also.
  11. 11. Then said
    H559
    Judah
    H3063
    to Tamar
    H8559
    his daughter in law,
    H3618
    Remain
    H3427
    a widow
    H490
    at thy father's
    H1
    house,
    H1004
    till Shelah
    H7956
    my son
    H1121
    be grown:
    H1431
    for he said,
    H559
    Lest peradventure he die
    H4191
    also, as his brethren
    H251
    did. And Tamar
    H8559
    went
    H3212
    and dwelt
    H3427
    in her father's
    H1
    house.
    H1004
  12. 12. And in process
    H7235
    of time
    H3117
    the daughter
    H1323
    of Shuah
    H7770
    Judah's
    H3063
    wife
    H802
    died;
    H4191
    and Judah
    H3063
    was comforted,
    H5162
    and went up
    H5927
    unto his sheepshearers
    H1494
    H6629
    to Timnath,
    H8553
    he and his friend
    H7453
    Hirah
    H2437
    the Adullamite.
    H5726
  13. 13. And it was told
    H5046
    Tamar,
    H8559
    saying,
    H559
    Behold thy father in law
    H2524
    goeth up
    H5927
    to Timnath
    H8553
    to shear
    H1494
    his sheep.
    H6629
  14. 14. And she put
    H5493
    her widow's
    H491
    garments
    H899
    off
    H5493
    from her, and covered her
    H3680
    with a vail,
    H6809
    and wrapped herself,
    H5968
    and sat in
    H3427
    an open
    H5869
    place,
    H6607
    which is by the way
    H1870
    to Timnath;
    H8553
    for she saw
    H7200
    that Shelah
    H7956
    was grown,
    H1431
    and she was not given
    H5414
    unto him to wife.
    H802
  15. 15. When Judah
    H3063
    saw her,
    H7200
    he thought
    H2803
    her to be an harlot;
    H2181
    because she had covered
    H3680
    her face.
    H6440
  16. 16. And he turned
    H5186
    unto her by the way,
    H1870
    and said,
    H559
    Go to,
    H3051
    I pray thee, let me come in
    H935
    unto thee; (for he knew
    H3045
    not that she was his daughter in law.)
    H3618
    And she said,
    H559
    What wilt thou give
    H5414
    me, that thou mayest come in
    H935
    unto me?
  17. 17. And he said,
    H559
    I will send
    H7971
    thee a kid
    H1423
    from
    H5795
    the flock.
    H6629
    And she said,
    H559
    Wilt thou give
    H5414
    me a pledge,
    H6162
    till thou send
    H7971
    it?
  18. 18. And he said,
    H559
    What
    H834
    pledge
    H6162
    shall I give
    H5414
    thee? And she said,
    H559
    Thy signet,
    H2368
    and thy bracelets,
    H6616
    and thy staff
    H4294
    that is in thine hand.
    H3027
    And he gave
    H5414
    it her, and came in
    H935
    unto her, and she conceived
    H2029
    by him.
  19. 19. And she arose,
    H6965
    and went away,
    H3212
    and laid by
    H5493
    her vail
    H6809
    from her, and put on
    H3847
    the garments
    H899
    of her widowhood.
    H491
  20. 20. And Judah
    H3063
    sent
    H7971
    the kid
    H5795
    by
    H1423
    the hand
    H3027
    of his friend
    H7453
    the Adullamite,
    H5726
    to receive
    H3947
    his pledge
    H6162
    from the woman's
    H802
    hand:
    H3027
    but he found her
    H4672
    not.
  21. 21. Then he asked
    H7592
    the men
    H582
    of that place,
    H4725
    saying,
    H559
    Where is the harlot,
    H6948
    that was openly
    H5869
    by the way side?
    H1870
    And they said,
    H559
    There was no harlot
    H6948
    in this
    H2088
    place.
  22. 22. And he returned
    H7725
    to Judah,
    H3063
    and said,
    H559
    I cannot
    H3808
    find
    H4672
    her; and also the men
    H582
    of the place
    H4725
    said,
    H559
    that there was no harlot
    H6948
    in this place.
  23. 23. And Judah
    H3063
    said,
    H559
    Let her take
    H3947
    it to her, lest we be shamed:
    H937
    behold, I sent
    H7971
    this kid,
    H1423
    and thou hast not found
    H4672
    her.
  24. 24. And it came to pass about three
    H7969
    months
    H2320
    after, that it was told
    H5046
    Judah,
    H3063
    saying,
    H559
    Tamar
    H8559
    thy daughter in law
    H3618
    hath played the harlot;
    H2181
    and also, behold, she is with child
    H2030
    by whoredom.
    H2183
    And Judah
    H3063
    said,
    H559
    Bring her forth,
    H3318
    and let her be burnt.
    H8313
  25. 25. When she was brought forth,
    H3318
    she sent
    H7971
    to her father in law,
    H2524
    saying,
    H559
    By the man,
    H376
    whose these are, am I with child:
    H2030
    and she said,
    H559
    Discern,
    H5234
    I pray thee, whose are these, the signet,
    H2858
    and bracelets,
    H6616
    and staff.
    H4294
  26. 26. And Judah
    H3063
    acknowledged
    H5234
    them, and said,
    H559
    She hath been more righteous
    H6663
    than I; because that I gave
    H5414
    her not to Shelah
    H7956
    my son.
    H1121
    And he knew her
    H3045
    again
    H3254
    no more.
  27. 27. And it came to pass in the time
    H6256
    of her travail,
    H3205
    that, behold, twins
    H8380
    were in her womb.
    H990
  28. 28. And it came to pass, when she travailed,
    H3205
    that the one put out
    H5414
    his hand:
    H3027
    and the midwife
    H3205
    took
    H3947
    and bound
    H7194
    upon his hand
    H3027
    a scarlet thread,
    H8144
    saying,
    H559
    This came out
    H3318
    first.
    H7223
  29. 29. And it came to pass, as he drew back
    H7725
    his hand,
    H3027
    that, behold, his brother
    H251
    came out:
    H3318
    and she said,
    H559
    How hast thou broken forth?
    H6555
    this breach
    H6556
    be upon thee: therefore his name
    H8034
    was called
    H7121
    Pharez.
    H6557
  30. 30. And afterward
    H310
    came out
    H3318
    his brother,
    H251
    that had the scarlet thread
    H8144
    upon his hand:
    H3027
    and his name
    H8034
    was called
    H7121
    Zarah.
