ND it came to pass at that time that Judas went down from his brethren, and came as far as to a certain man of Odollam, whose name was Iras. 2 And Judas saw there the daughter of a Chananitish man, whose name was Sava; and he took her, and went in to her. 3 And she conceived and bore a son, and called his name, Er. 4 And she conceived and bore a son again; and called his name, Aunan. 5 And she again bore a son; and called his name, Selom: and she was in Chasbi when she bore them. 6 And Judas took a wife for Er his first-born, whose name was Thamar. 7 And Er, the first-born of Judas, was wicked before the Lord; and God killed him. 8 And Judas said to Aunan, Go in to thy brother's wife, and marry her as her brother-in-law, and raise up seed to thy brother. 9 And Aunan, knowing that the seed should not be his-- it came to pass when he went in to his brother's wife, that he spilled [it] upon the ground, so that he should not give seed to his brother's wife. 10 And his doing this appeared evil before God; and he slew him also.

ΕΓΕΝΕΤΟ δέ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ, κατέβη ᾿Ιούδας ἀπὸ τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀφίκετο ἕως πρὸς ἄνθρωπόν τινα ᾿Οδολλαμίτην, ᾧ ὄνομα Εἰράς. 2 καὶ εἶδεν ἐκεῖ ᾿Ιούδας θυγατέρα ἀνθρώπου Χαναναίου, ᾗ ὄνομα Σαυά, καὶ ἔλαβεν αὐτὴν καὶ εἰσῆλθε πρὸς αὐτήν. 3 καὶ συλλαβοῦσα ἔτεκεν υἱὸν καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ῎Ηρ. 4 καὶ συλλαβοῦσα ἔτεκεν υἱὸν ἔτι καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Αὐνάν. 5 καὶ προσθεῖσα ἔτεκεν υἱὸν καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Σηλώμ. αὕτη δὲ ἦν ἐν Χασβί, ἡνίκα ἔτεκεν αὐτούς. 6 καὶ ἔλαβεν ᾿Ιούδας γυναῖκα ῍Ηρ τῷ πρωτοτόκῳ αὐτοῦ, ᾗ ὄνομα Θάμαρ. 7 ἐγένετο δὲ ῍Ηρ πρωτότοκος ᾿Ιούδα πονηρὸς ἔναντι Κυρίου, καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν αὐτὸν ὁ Θεός. 8 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ιούδας τῷ Αὐνάν· εἴσελθε πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ σου καὶ ἐπιγάμβρευσαι αὐτὴν καὶ ἀνάστησον σπέρμα τῷ ἀδελφῷ σου. 9 γνοὺς δὲ Αὐνὰν ὅτι οὐκ αὐτῷ ἔσται τὸ σπέρμα, ἐγίνετο ὅταν εἰσήρχετο πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ, ἐξέχεεν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν τοῦ μὴ δοῦναι σπέρμα τῷ ἀδελφῷ αὐτοῦ. 10 πονηρὸν δὲ ἐφάνη ἐναντίον τοῦ Θεοῦ, ὅτι ἐποίησε τοῦτο, καὶ ἐθανάτωσε καὶ τοῦτον.
