11 And Judas said to Thamar, his daughter-in-law, Sit thou a widow in the house of thy father-in-law, until Selom my son be grown; for he said, lest he also die as his brethren; and Thamar departed, and sat in the house of her father. 12 And the days were fulfilled, and Sava the wife of Judas died; and Judas, being comforted, went to them that sheared his sheep, himself and Iras his Shepherd the Odollamite, to Thamna. 13 And it was told Thamar his daughter-in-law, saying, Behold, thy father-in-law goeth up to Thamna, to shear his sheep. 14 And having taken off the garments of her widowhood from her, she put on a veil, and ornamented her face, and sat by the gates of Aenan, which is in the way to Thamna, for she saw that Selom was grown; but he gave her not to him for a wife. 15 And when Judas saw her, he thought her to be a harlot; for she covered her face, and he knew her not. 16 And he went out of his way to her, and said to her, Let me come in to thee; for he knew not that she was his daughter-in-law; and she said, What wilt thou give me if thou shouldest come in to me? 17 And he said, I will send thee a kid of the goats from my flock; and she said, [Well], if thou wilt give me an earnest, until thou send it. 18 And he said, What is the earnest that I shall give thee? and she said, Thy ring, and thy bracelet, and the staff in thy hand; and he gave them to her, and went in to her, and she conceived by him. 19 And she arose and departed, and took her veil from off her, and put on the garments of her widowhood. 20 And Judas sent the kid of the goats by the hand of his shepherd the Odollamite, to receive the pledge from the woman; and he found her not.

11 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ιούδας Θάμαρ τῇ νύμφῃ αὐτοῦ· κάθου χήρα ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ πατρός σου ἕως μέγας γένηται Σηλὼμ ὁ υἱός μου. εἶπε γάρ· μή ποτε ἀποθάνῃ καὶ οὗτος, ὥσπερ καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ. ἀπελθοῦσα δὲ Θάμαρ ἐκάθητο ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῆς. 12 ᾿Επληθύνθησαν δὲ αἱ ἡμέραι καὶ ἀπέθανε Σαυὰ ἡ γυνὴ ᾿Ιούδα· καὶ παρακληθεὶς ᾿Ιούδας ἀνέβη ἐπὶ τοὺς κείροντας τά πρόβατα αὐτοῦ, αὐτὸς καὶ Εἰρὰς ὁ ποιμὴν αὐτοῦ ὁ ᾿Οδολλαμίτης εἰς Θαμνά. 13 καὶ ἀπηγγέλη Θάμαρ τῇ νύμφῃ αὐτοῦ λέγοντες· ἰδοὺ ὁ πενθερός σου ἀναβαίνει εἰς Θαμνὰ κεῖραι τὰ πρόβατα αὐτοῦ. 14 καὶ περιελομένη τὰ ἱμάτια τῆς χηρεύσεως ἀφ᾿ ἑαυτῆς, περιεβάλετο θέριστρον καὶ ἐκαλλωπίσατο καὶ ἐκάθισε πρὸς ταῖς πύλαις Αἰνάν, ἥ ἐστιν ἐν παρόδῳ Θαμνά· εἶδε γὰρ ὅτι μέγας γέγονε Σηλώμ, αὐτὸς δὲ οὐκ ἔδωκεν αὐτὴν αὐτῷ γυναῖκα. 15 καὶ ἰδὼν αὐτὴν ᾿Ιούδας ἔδοξεν αὐτὴν πόρνην εἶναι· κατεκαλύψατο γὰρ τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτῆς, καὶ οὐκ ἐπέγνω αὐτήν. 16 ἐξέκλινε δὲ πρὸς αὐτὴν τὴν ὁδὸν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ· ἔασόν με εἰσελθεῖν πρὸς σέ· οὐ γὰρ ἔγνω ὅτι νύμφη αὐτοῦ ἐστίν. ἡ δὲ εἶπε· τί μοι δώσεις, ἐὰν εἰσέλθῃς πρός με; 17 ὁ δὲ εἶπεν· ἐγώ σοι ἀποστελῶ ἔριφον αἰγῶν ἐκ τῶν προβάτων μου, ἡ δὲ εἶπεν· ἐὰν δῷς μοι ἀρραβῶνα, ἕως τοῦ ἀποστεῖλαί σε. 18 ὁ δὲ εἶπε· τίνα τὸν ἀρραβῶνά σοι δώσω; ἡ δὲ εἶπε· τὸν δακτύλιόν σου καὶ τὸν ὁρμίσκον, καὶ τὴν ράβδον τὴν ἐν τῇ χειρί σου. καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῇ καὶ εἰσῆλθε πρὸς αὐτήν, καὶ ἐν γαστρὶ ἔλαβεν ἐξ αὐτοῦ. 19 καὶ ἀναστᾶσα ἀπῆλθε καὶ περιείλετο τὸ θέριστρον αὐτῆς ἀφ᾿ ἑαυτῆς καὶ ἐνεδύσατο τὰ ἱμάτια τῆς χηρεύσεως αὐτῆς. 20 ἀπέστειλε δὲ ᾿Ιούδας τὸν ἔριφον ἐξ αἰγῶν ἐν χειρὶ τοῦ ποιμένος αὐτοῦ τοῦ ᾿Οδολλαμίτου κομίσασθαι παρὰ τῆς γυναικὸς τὸν ἀρραβῶνα, καὶ οὐχ εὗρεν αὐτήν.
