And it cometh to pass, at that time, that Judah goeth down from his brethren, and turneth aside unto a man, an Adullamite, whose name [is] Hirah;
and Judah seeth there the daughter of a man, a Canaanite, whose name [is] Shuah, and taketh her, and goeth in unto her.
And she conceiveth, and beareth a son, and he calleth his name Er;
and she conceiveth again, and beareth a son, and calleth his name Onan;
and she addeth again, and beareth a son, and calleth his name Shelah; and he was in Chezib in her bearing him.
And Judah taketh a wife for Er, his first-born, and her name [is] Tamar;
and Er, Judah's first-born, is evil in the eyes of Jehovah, and Jehovah doth put him to death.
