And it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from his brethren, and turned unto a certain Adullamite, whose name was Hirah.
And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was Shua; and he took her, and went in unto her.
And she conceived and bore a son, and he called his name Er.
And she conceived again and bore a son, and she called his name Onan.
And she yet again conceived and bore a son, and called his name Shelah. And he was at Chezib when she bore him.
And Judah took a wife for Er his firstborn, whose name was Tamar.
And Er, Judah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD slew him.
