And Judah said to Tamar his daughter-in-law, Dwell· a widow ·in thy father’s house, until Shelah my son be grown··up; for he said, Lest he◦ also die, like◦ his brothers. And Tamar went and dwelt··in her father’s house.
And the days were··multiplied, and the daughter of Shua, the wife of Judah, died; and Judah was comforted, and went··up to the shearers of his flock, he◦ and his companion Hirah the Adullamite, to▫ Timnath.
And she removed from upon herself the garments of her widowhood, and covered herself with a veil◦, and wrapped herself, and sat in the entrance of the founts which are upon the way toward Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown··up, and she◦ was not given to him for a woman.
And he went··aside to▵ her to▵ the way, and said, Give▵, I pray◦, that I may come to▵ thee; for he knew not that she◦ was his daughter-in-law. And she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest come to▵ me?
And it was, about◦ three months after, and it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter-in-law has committed··harlotry; and also, behold, she has conceived by harlotries. And Judah said, Bring· her ·out, and she shall be burnt··up.
She◦ was brought··out, and she◦ sent to▵ her father-in-law, saying, To the man◦ whose these are, to him I▵ have conceived; and she said, Recognize, I pray◦ thee, whose are these, the signet and the kerchief and the rod.
