Genesis 38:14

Context
38:14 So she removed her widow’s clothes and covered herself with a veil. She wrapped herself and sat at the entrance to Enaim which is on the way to Timnah. (She did this because 1  she saw that she had not been given to Shelah as a wife, even though he had now grown up.) 2 

Genesis 38:19

Context
38:19 She left immediately, 3  removed her veil, and put on her widow’s clothes.

1 tn The Hebrew text simply has “because,” connecting this sentence to what precedes. For stylistic reasons the words “she did this” are supplied in the translation and a new sentence begun.

2 tn Heb “she saw that Shelah had grown up, but she was not given to him as a wife.”

3 tn Heb “and she arose and left,” the first verb in the pair emphasizing that she wasted no time.
