Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993

 

   

38:1And it happened at that time that Judah went down, away from his brothers, and turned aside to a man of Adullam named Hirah.
38:2And Judah saw there a daughter of a Canaanite man named Shuah. And he took her, and went in to her.
38:3And she conceived and bore a son. And he called his name Er.
38:4And she conceived again and bore a son and called his name Onan.
38:5And she continued still and bore a son. And she called his name Shelah. And he was at Chezib when she bore him.
38:6And Judah took a wife for his first born, Er, and her name, Tamar.
38:7And Er, Judah's first born, was evil in the eyes of Jehovah. And Jehovah killed him.
38:8And Judah said to Onan, Go in to your brother's wife and marry her , and raise up seed to your brother.
38:9And Onan knew that the seed would not be his. And it happened when he went into his brother's wife, he wasted his semen to the ground, not giving seed to his brother.
38:10And what he did was evil in the eyes of Jehovah, and He also killed him.
38:11And Judah said to his daughter-in-law Tamar, Live as a widow in your father's house until my son Shelah is grown. For he said, Lest he also die like his brothers. And Tamar went and lived in her father's house.
38:12And the days were many, and the wife of Judah, the daughter of Shuah, died. And Judah was comforted, and he went up to the shearers of his flocks, he and his friend Hirah of Adullam, to Timnah.
38:13And Tamar was told, saying, Behold, your father-in-law is going up to Timnah to shear his flocks.
38:14And she took off her widow's robes from her, and veiled herself with a veil, and disguised herself. And she sat at the entrance of Enaim, which is on the way to Timnah. For she saw that Shelah had grown up, and she had not been given to him for a wife.
38:15And Judah saw her. And he thought her to be a harlot, because she had veiled her face.
38:16And he turned aside to her by the roadway, and said, Come now, let me come in to you. For he did not know that she was his daughter-in-law. And she said, What will you give me that you may come in to me?
38:17And he said, I will send a kid of the goats from the flock. And she said, Will you give me a pledge until you send it ?
38:18And he said, What pledge shall I give to you? And she said, Your signet ring, and your bracelet and your staff in your hand. And he gave to her, and came in to her. And she conceived by him.
38:19And she rose up and left, and took off her veil from her face. And she put on her widow's robes.
38:20And Judah sent the kid of the goats by the hand of his friend, the Adullamite, to receive the pledge from the woman's hand. And he did not find her.
38:21And he asked the men of her place, saying, Where is the harlot that was at Enaim, by the roadway? And they said, There was no harlot here.
38:22And he returned to Judah and said, I have not found her. And also the men of the place said, There was no harlot here.
38:23And Judah said, Let her take them for herself, that we not become a laughing stock. See, I sent this kid, and you did not find her.
38:24And after three months, it happened. It was told to Judah, saying, Your daughter-in-law Tamar has committed adultery, and also, behold, she is pregnant by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her out and let her be burned.
38:25She was being brought out, and she sent to her father-in-law, saying, I am pregnant by a man to whom these belong . And she said, Note now whose are these, the signet ring, the bracelet, and the staff?
38:26And Judah knew and said, She is more righteous than I, because I did not give her to my son Shelah. And he never knew her again.
38:27And in the time of her bearing, behold, it happened! Twins were in her womb.
38:28And in her bearing, it happened that one put forth a hand, and the midwife took it and tied crimson on his hand, saying, This one came out first.
38:29And it happened as he withdrew his hand, behold, his brother came out. And she said, How have you broken a break for yourself? And one called his name Pharez.
38:30And then his brother came out, on whose hand was the crimson. And one called his name Zarah.
