Genesis 38:12-26

And in process
<07235> (8799)
of time
<03117>
the daughter
<01323>
of Shuah
<07770>
Judah's
<03063>
wife
<0802>
died
<04191> (8799)_;
and Judah
<03063>
was comforted
<05162> (8735)_,
and went up
<05927> (8799)
unto his sheepshearers
<01494> (8802) <06629>
to Timnath
<08553>_,
he and his friend
<07453>
Hirah
<02437>
the Adullamite
<05726>_.
{in process...: Heb. the days were multiplied}
And it was told
<05046> (8714)
Tamar
<08559>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold thy father in law
<02524>
goeth up
<05927> (8802)
to Timnath
<08553>
to shear
<01494> (8800)
his sheep
<06629>_.
And she put
<05493> (0)
her widow's
<0491>
garments
<0899>
off
<05493> (8686)
from her, and covered her
<03680> (8762)
with a vail
<06809>_,
and wrapped herself
<05968> (8691)_,
and sat in
<03427> (8799)
an open
<05869>
place
<06607>_,
which [is] by the way
<01870>
to Timnath
<08553>_;
for she saw
<07200> (8804)
that Shelah
<07956>
was grown
<01431> (8804)_,
and she was not given
<05414> (8738)
unto him to wife
<0802>_.
{an open...: Heb. the door of eyes, or, of Enajim}
When Judah
<03063>
saw her
<07200> (8799)_,
he thought
<02803> (8799)
her [to be] an harlot
<02181> (8802)_;
because she had covered
<03680> (8765)
her face
<06440>_.
And he turned
<05186> (8799)
unto her by the way
<01870>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Go to
<03051> (8798)_,
I pray thee, let me come in
<0935> (8799)
unto thee; (for he knew
<03045> (8804)
not that she [was] his daughter in law
<03618>.)
And she said
<0559> (8799)_,
What wilt thou give
<05414> (8799)
me, that thou mayest come in
<0935> (8799)
unto me?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will send
<07971> (8762)
[thee] a kid
<05795> <01423>
from the flock
<06629>_.
And she said
<0559> (8799)_,
Wilt thou give
<05414> (8799)
[me] a pledge
<06162>_,
till thou send
<07971> (8800)
[it]? {a kid: Heb. a kid of the goats}
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
What
<0834>
pledge
<06162>
shall I give
<05414> (8799)
thee? And she said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thy signet
<02368>_,
and thy bracelets
<06616>_,
and thy staff
<04294>
that [is] in thine hand
<03027>_.
And he gave
<05414> (8799)
[it] her, and came in
<0935> (8799)
unto her, and she conceived
<02029> (8799)
by him.
And she arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and went away
<03212> (8799)_,
and laid by
<05493> (8686)
her vail
<06809>
from her, and put on
<03847> (8799)
the garments
<0899>
of her widowhood
<0491>_.
And Judah
<03063>
sent
<07971> (8799)
the kid
<01423> <05795>
by the hand
<03027>
of his friend
<07453>
the Adullamite
<05726>_,
to receive
<03947> (8800)
[his] pledge
<06162>
from the woman's
<0802>
hand
<03027>_:
but he found her
<04672> (8804)
not.
Then he asked
<07592> (8799)
the men
<0582>
of that place
<04725>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Where [is] the harlot
<06948>_,
that [was] openly
<05869>
by the way side
<01870>_?
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
There was no harlot
<06948>
in this
<02088>
[place]. {openly: or, in Enajim}
And he returned
<07725> (8799)
to Judah
<03063>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
I cannot
<03808>
find
<04672> (8804)
her; and also the men
<0582>
of the place
<04725>
said
<0559> (8804)_,
[that] there was no harlot
<06948>
in this [place].
And Judah
<03063>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let her take
<03947> (8799)
[it] to her, lest we be shamed
<0937>_:
behold, I sent
<07971> (8804)
this kid
<01423>_,
and thou hast not found
<04672> (8804)
her. {be shamed: Heb. become a contempt}
And it came to pass about three
<07969>
months
<02320>
after, that it was told
<05046> (8714)
Judah
<03063>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Tamar
<08559>
thy daughter in law
<03618>
hath played the harlot
<02181> (8804)_;
and also, behold, she [is] with child
<02030>
by whoredom
<02183>_.
And Judah
<03063>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Bring her forth
<03318> (8685)_,
and let her be burnt
<08313> (8735)_.
When she [was] brought forth
<03318> (8716)_,
she sent
<07971> (8804)
to her father in law
<02524>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
By the man
<0376>_,
whose these [are, am] I with child
<02030>_:
and she said
<0559> (8799)_,
Discern
<05234> (8685)_,
I pray thee, whose [are] these, the signet
<02858>_,
and bracelets
<06616>_,
and staff
<04294>_.
And Judah
<03063>
acknowledged
<05234> (8686)
[them], and said
<0559> (8799)_,
She hath been more righteous
<06663> (8804)
than I; because that I gave
<05414> (8804)
her not to Shelah
<07956>
my son
<01121>_.
And he knew her
<03045> (8800)
again
<03254> (8804)
no more.
