This chapter is wholly taken up with matters relating to Judah, the
fourth son of Jacob, from whom the Jews have their name, and from whom
Christ sprung: it treats of his marriage with a Canaanitess, his
children by her, their character and end, \\#Ge 38:1-11\\; of his incest
with his daughter-in-law, though unknown by him, \\#Ge 38:12-23\\; of his
resentment against her, when he heard she was with child, and his
confusion when he found it was by himself, \\#Ge 38:24-26\\; and of the
birth of twins by her, named Pharez and Zarah, \\#Ge 38:27-30\\.
