    38:1 And it came to pass at that time 6256, that Judah 3063 went down 3381 8799 from his brethren 251, and turned 5186 8799 in to a certain 376 Adullamite 5726, whose name 8034 [was] Hirah 2437.

    38:2 And Judah 3063 saw 7200 8799 there a daughter 1323 of a certain 376 Canaanite 3669, whose name 8034 [was] Shuah 7770; and he took her 3947 8799, and went in 935 8799 unto her.

    38:3 And she conceived 2029 8799, and bare 3205 8799 a son 1121; and he called 7121 8799 his name 8034 Er 6147.

    38:4 And she conceived 2029 8799 again, and bare 3205 8799 a son 1121; and she called 7121 8799 his name 8034 Onan 209.

    38:5 And she yet again conceived 3254 8686, and bare 3205 8799 a son 1121; and called 7121 8799 his name 8034 Shelah 7956: and he was at Chezib 3580, when she bare 3205 8800 him.

    38:6 And Judah 3063 took 3947 8799 a wife 802 for Er 6147 his firstborn 1060, whose name 8034 [was] Tamar 8559.

    38:7 And Er 6147, Judah's 3063 firstborn 1060, was wicked 7451 in the sight 5869 of the LORD 3068; and the LORD 3068 slew 4191 8686 him.

    38:8 And Judah 3063 said 559 8799 unto Onan 209, Go in 935 8798 unto thy brother's 251 wife 802, and marry 2992 8761 her, and raise up 6965 8685 seed 2233 to thy brother 251.

    38:9 And Onan 209 knew 3045 8799 that the seed 2233 should not be his; and it came to pass, when 518 he went in 935 8802 unto his brother's 251 wife 802, that he spilled 7843 8765 [it] on the ground 776, lest 1115 that he should give 5414 8800 seed 2233 to his brother 251.

    38:10 And the thing which 834 he did 6213 8804 displeased 3415 8799 5869 the LORD 3068: wherefore he slew 4191 8686 him also.(displeased…: Heb. was evil in the eyes of the Lord)

    38:11 Then said 559 8799 Judah 3063 to Tamar 8559 his daughter in law 3618, Remain 3427 8798 a widow 490 at thy father's 1 house 1004, till Shelah 7956 my son 1121 be grown 1431 8799: for he said 559 8804, Lest peradventure he die 4191 8799 also, as his brethren 251 [did]. And Tamar 8559 went 3212 8799 and dwelt 3427 8799 in her father's 1 house 1004.

    38:12 And in process 7235 8799 of time 3117 the daughter 1323 of Shuah 7770 Judah's 3063 wife 802 died 4191 8799; and Judah 3063 was comforted 5162 8735, and went up 5927 8799 unto his sheepshearers 1494 8802 6629 to Timnath 8553, he and his friend 7453 Hirah 2437 the Adullamite 5726.(in process…: Heb. the days were multiplied)

    38:13 And it was told 5046 8714 Tamar 8559, saying 559 8800, Behold thy father in law 2524 goeth up 5927 8802 to Timnath 8553 to shear 1494 8800 his sheep 6629.

    38:14 And she put 5493 0 her widow's 491 garments 899 off 5493 8686 from her, and covered her 3680 8762 with a vail 6809, and wrapped herself 5968 8691, and sat in 3427 8799 an open 5869 place 6607, which [is] by the way 1870 to Timnath 8553; for she saw 7200 8804 that Shelah 7956 was grown 1431 8804, and she was not given 5414 8738 unto him to wife 802.(an open…: Heb. the door of eyes, or, of Enajim)

    38:15 When Judah 3063 saw her 7200 8799, he thought 2803 8799 her [to be] an harlot 2181 8802; because she had covered 3680 8765 her face 6440.

    38:16 And he turned 5186 8799 unto her by the way 1870, and said 559 8799, Go to 3051 8798, I pray thee, let me come in 935 8799 unto thee; (for he knew 3045 8804 not that she [was] his daughter in law 3618.) And she said 559 8799, What wilt thou give 5414 8799 me, that thou mayest come in 935 8799 unto me?

    38:17 And he said 559 8799, I will send 7971 8762 [thee] a kid 5795 1423 from the flock 6629. And she said 559 8799, Wilt thou give 5414 8799 [me] a pledge 6162, till thou send 7971 8800 [it]?(a kid: Heb. a kid of the goats)

    38:18 And he said 559 8799, What 834 pledge 6162 shall I give 5414 8799 thee? And she said 559 8799, Thy signet 2368, and thy bracelets 6616, and thy staff 4294 that [is] in thine hand 3027. And he gave 5414 8799 [it] her, and came in 935 8799 unto her, and she conceived 2029 8799 by him.

    38:19 And she arose 6965 8799, and went away 3212 8799, and laid by 5493 8686 her vail 6809 from her, and put on 3847 8799 the garments 899 of her widowhood 491.

    38:20 And Judah 3063 sent 7971 8799 the kid 1423 5795 by the hand 3027 of his friend 7453 the Adullamite 5726, to receive 3947 8800 [his] pledge 6162 from the woman's 802 hand 3027: but he found her 4672 8804 not.

    38:21 Then he asked 7592 8799 the men 582 of that place 4725, saying 559 8800, Where [is] the harlot 6948, that [was] openly 5869 by the way side 1870? And they said 559 8799, There was no harlot 6948 in this 2088 [place].(openly: or, in Enajim)

    38:22 And he returned 7725 8799 to Judah 3063, and said 559 8799, I cannot 3808 find 4672 8804 her; and also the men 582 of the place 4725 said 559 8804, [that] there was no harlot 6948 in this [place].

    38:23 And Judah 3063 said 559 8799, Let her take 3947 8799 [it] to her, lest we be shamed 937: behold, I sent 7971 8804 this kid 1423, and thou hast not found 4672 8804 her.(be shamed: Heb. become a contempt)

    38:24 And it came to pass about three 7969 months 2320 after, that it was told 5046 8714 Judah 3063, saying 559 8800, Tamar 8559 thy daughter in law 3618 hath played the harlot 2181 8804; and also, behold, she [is] with child 2030 by whoredom 2183. And Judah 3063 said 559 8799, Bring her forth 3318 8685, and let her be burnt 8313 8735.

    38:25 When she [was] brought forth 3318 8716, she sent 7971 8804 to her father in law 2524, saying 559 8800, By the man 376, whose these [are, am] I with child 2030: and she said 559 8799, Discern 5234 8685, I pray thee, whose [are] these, the signet 2858, and bracelets 6616, and staff 4294.

    38:26 And Judah 3063 acknowledged 5234 8686 [them], and said 559 8799, She hath been more righteous 6663 8804 than I; because that I gave 5414 8804 her not to Shelah 7956 my son 1121. And he knew her 3045 8800 again 3254 8804 no more.

    38:27 And it came to pass in the time 6256 of her travail 3205 8800, that, behold, twins 8380 [were] in her womb 990.

    38:28 And it came to pass, when she travailed 3205 8800, that [the one] put out 5414 8799 [his] hand 3027: and the midwife 3205 8764 took 3947 8799 and bound 7194 8799 upon his hand 3027 a scarlet thread 8144, saying 559 8800, This came out 3318 8804 first 7223.

    38:29 And it came to pass, as he drew back 7725 8688 his hand 3027, that, behold, his brother 251 came out 3318 8804: and she said 559 8799, How hast thou broken forth 6555 8804? [this] breach 6556 [be] upon thee: therefore his name 8034 was called 7121 8799 Pharez 6557.(How hast…: or, Wherefore hast thou made this breach against thee?)(Pharez: that is A breach)

    38:30 And afterward 310 came out 3318 8804 his brother 251, that had the scarlet thread 8144 upon his hand 3027: and his name 8034 was called 7121 8799 Zarah 2226.
