“And Iudah said, Let her take it to her, lest we bee shamed: behold, I sent this kidde, and thou hast not found her.”
King James Version (KJV)
20. And Iudah sent the kidde by the hand of his friend the Adullamite, to receive his pledge from the womans hand: but he found her not. 21. Then hee asked the men of that place, saying, where is the harlot, that was openly by the way side? And they said, There was no harlot in this place. 22. And he returned to Iudah, and said, I cannot finde her: and also the men of the place said, That there was no harlot in this place. 23. And Iudah said, Let her take it to her, lest we bee shamed: behold, I sent this kidde, and thou hast not found her. 24. ¶ And it came to passe about three moneths after, that it was tolde Iudah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot, and also behold, she is with child by whoredom: and Iudah said, Bring her foorth, and let her be burnt. 25. When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man whose these are, am I with child: and shee said, Discerne, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staffe. 26. And Iudah acknowledged them, and said, She hath bin more righteous then I: because that I gaue her not to Shelah my sonne: and he knew her againe no more.
