(Gen 38:1) And it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from his brethren, and turned in to a certain Adullamite, whose name {was} Hirah.
(Gen 38:2) And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name {was} Shuah; and he took her, and went in unto her.
(Gen 38:3) And she conceived, and bare a son; and he called his name Er.
(Gen 38:4) And she conceived again, and bare a son; and she called his name Onan.
(Gen 38:5) And she yet again conceived, and bare a son; and called his name Shelah: and he was at Chezib, when she bare him.
(Gen 38:6) And Judah took a wife for Er his firstborn, whose name {was} Tamar.
(Gen 38:7) And Er, Judah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the Lord; and the Lord slew him.
(Gen 38:8) And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother's wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother.
(Gen 38:9) And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother's wife, that he spilled {it} on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.
(Gen 38:10) And the thing which he did displeased the Lord: wherefore he slew him also.
(Gen 38:11) Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter in law, Remain a widow at thy father's house, till Shelah my son be grown: for he said, Lest peradventure he die also, as his brethren {did}. And Tamar went and dwelt in her father's house.
(Gen 38:12) And in process of time the daughter of Shuah Judah's wife died; and Judah was comforted, and went up unto his sheepshearers to Timnath, he and his friend Hirah the Adullamite.
(Gen 38:13) And it was told Tamar, saying, Behold thy father in law goeth up to Timnath to shear his sheep.
(Gen 38:14) And she put her widow's garments off from her, and covered her with a vail, and wrapped herself, and sat in an open place, which {is} by the way to Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown, and she was not given unto him to wife.
(Gen 38:15) When Judah saw her, he thought her {to be} an harlot; because she had covered her face.
(Gen 38:16) And he turned unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray thee, let me come in unto thee; (for he knew not that she {was} his daughter in law.) And she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest come in unto me?
(Gen 38:17) And he said, I will send {thee} a kid from the Flock. And she said, Wilt thou give {me} a pledge, till thou send {it}?
(Gen 38:18) And he said, What pledge shall I give thee? And she said, Thy signet, and thy Bracelets, and thy staff that {is} in thine hand. And he gave {it} her, and came in unto her, and she conceived by him.
(Gen 38:19) And she arose, and went away, and laid by her vail from her, and put on the garments of her widowhood.
(Gen 38:20) And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his friend the Adullamite, to receive {his} pledge from the woman's hand: but he found her not.
(Gen 38:21) Then he asked the men of that place, saying, Where {is} the harlot, that {was} openly by the way side? And they said, There was no harlot in this {place}.
(Gen 38:22) And he returned to Judah, and said, I cannot find her; and also the men of the place said, {that} there was no harlot in this {place}.
(Gen 38:23) And Judah said, Let her take {it} to her, lest we be shamed: behold, I sent this kid, and thou hast not found her.
(Gen 38:24) And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she {is} with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt.
(Gen 38:25) When she {was} brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these {are, am} I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray thee, whose {are} these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff.
(Gen 38:26) And Judah acknowledged {them}, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more.
(Gen 38:27) And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins {were} in her womb.
(Gen 38:28) And it came to pass, when she travailed, that {the one} put out {his} hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a scarlet thread, saying, This came out first.
(Gen 38:29) And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, How hast thou broken forth? {this} breach {be} upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.
(Gen 38:30) And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zarah.
