“And the thing which he did, displeased the LORD: wherefore hee slew him also.”
King James Version (KJV)
7. And Er, Iudahs first borne was wicked in the sight of the LORD, and the LORD slew him. 8. And Iudah said vnto Onan, Goe in vnto thy brothers wife, and marrie her, and raise vp seed to thy brother. 9. And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to passe when hee went in vnto his brothers wife, that hee spilled it on the ground, least that hee should giue seed to his brother. 10. And the thing which he did, displeased the LORD: wherefore hee slew him also. 11. Then said Iudah to Tamar his daughter in law, Remaine a widow at thy fathers house, til Shelah my sonne be growen: (for he said, Lest peraduenture he die also as his brethren did) and Tamar went and dwelt in her fathers house. 12. ¶ And in processe of time, the daughter of Shuah Iudahs wife died: and Iudah was comforted, and went vp vnto his sheepe-shearers to Timnath, he and his friend Hirah the Adullamite. 13. And it was told Lamar, saying, Behold, thy father in law goeth vp to Timnath to sheare his sheepe.
