Ang Pulong Sa Dios

Genesis 38:1-30

Si Juda ug si Tamar

1Niadto usab nga panahon, mibulag si Juda sa iyang mga igsoon ug didto siya mipuyo uban kang Hira nga taga-Adulam. 2Nakita ni Juda didto ang anak ni Shua nga taga-Canaan ug gipangasawa niya kini. 3Namabdos ang asawa ni Juda, ug nanganak kini ug lalaki nga ginganlan ni Juda ug Er. 4Namabdos siya pag-usab ug nanganak ug lalaki ug ginganlan niya kini ug Onan. 5Namabdos siya sa ikatulong higayon ug lalaki gihapon ang iyang anak ug ginganlan niya kini ug Shela. Natawo si Shela didto sa Kezib.

6Gipaasawa ni Juda kang Er, nga iyang kamagulangang anak, ang usa ka babaye nga ginganlan ug Tamar. 7Apan si Er daotan atubangan sa Ginoo, busa gipatay siya sa Ginoo. 8Unya miingon si Juda kang Onan, “Pangasaw-a ang imong bayaw kay katungdanan mo kana isip igsoon sa iyang bana nga namatay, aron pinaagi kanimo makabaton usab ug mga anak ang imong igsoon.” 9Apan nasayod si Onan nga dili isipon nga iya ang mahimong anak nila ni Tamar, busa sa matag higayon nga magdulog sila ni Tamar, dili niya ipasulod ang iyang semilya aron dili siya makaanak alang sa iyang igsoon. 10Daotan ang gibuhat ni Onan atubangan sa Ginoo, busa gipatay usab siya sa Ginoo.

11Unya miingon si Juda kang Tamar nga iyang umagad, “Pauli una sa imong amahan, ug ayaw pamana hangtod nga maulitawo na si Shela.” Giingon kadto ni Juda kay nahadlok siya nga mamatay usab si Shela sama sa iyang mga igsoon. Busa mipauli si Tamar sa iyang amahan.

12Miabot ang panahon, namatay ang asawa ni Juda. Pagkahuman sa iyang pagbangotan, miadto siya sa mga tigtupi sa iyang mga karnero didto sa Timnah. Kauban niya sa pag-adto ang iyang amigo nga si Hira nga taga-Adulam.

13May misulti kang Tamar nga miadto sa Timnah ang iyang ugangan aron pagpanupi sa iyang mga karnero. 14Pagkadungog niadto ni Tamar, giilisan niya ang iyang gisul-ob nga bisti nga alang sa balo, ug gitabonan niya ug belo ang iyang nawong. Unya milingkod siya dapit sa pultahan sa lungsod sa Enaim, sa daplin sa dalan nga paingon sa Timnah. (Gihimo niya kini tungod kay nakita niya nga ulitawo na si Shela apan wala gihapon siya ipaasawa kaniya.)

15-16Sa pagkakita ni Juda kang Tamar sa daplin sa dalan, gipakaingon niya ug usa kini ka babayeng nagabaligya sa iyang dungog, kay may tabon man ang nawong niini. Busa miduol siya kang Tamar (nga wala niya mailhi nga iya diayng umagad) ug miingon, “Dali, magdulog kita.” Mitubag si Tamar, “Unsa may imong ibayad kanako sa pagpakigdulog ko kanimo?” 17Miingon si Juda, “Hatagan ko ikaw ug kanding gikan sa akong kahayopan.” Mitubag si Tamar, “Mosugot ako kon may ihatag ka kanako nga garantiya hangtod nga ikapadala mo na ang kanding.” 18-19Nangutana si Juda, “Unsay gusto nimo nga akong igarantiya?” Mitubag si Tamar, “Ihatag kanako ang imong pangtimbre apil ang higot niini, ug ang imong baston.” Busa gihatag kadto ni Juda ug nakigdulog siya kang Tamar. Human niadto mipauli si Tamar. Gikuha niya ang tabon sa iyang nawong ug gisul-ob pag-usab ang bisti nga alang sa balo. Wala madugay namabdos siya.

20Gipahatod ni Juda sa iyang amigo, nga si Hira nga taga-Adulam, ang kanding aron makuha gikan sa babaye ang mga butang nga iyang gihatag ingon nga garantiya, apan wala kini makita ni Hira. 21Nangutana si Hira sa mga taga-Enaim kon hain na ang babayeng nagabaligya sa iyang dungog, nga didto maglingkod sa daplin sa dalan. Apan mitubag ang mga tawo, “Wala may babaye dinhi nga nagabaligya sa iyang dungog.”

22Busa mibalik si Hira kang Juda ug miingon, “Wala ko siya makita. Ug matod pa sa mga tawo wala man kunoy babaye didto nga nagabaligya sa iyang dungog.” 23Miingon si Juda, “Pasagdi na! Iya na lang kadtong mga butang nga atua kaniya, kay basin ug mahimo kitang kataw-anan kon sige pa tag pangita sa wala. Gipahatdan ko na bitaw siya niining kanding, apan wala mo man kaha siya makita didto!”

24Paglabay sa tulo ka bulan, gisultihan si Juda nga ang iyang umagad nga si Tamar nagabaligya sa iyang dungog ug mabdos na gani. Busa miingon si Juda, “Dad-a ninyo siya sa gawas sa lungsod aron sunogon.” 25Apan sa dihang gidala na si Tamar, may gisugo siya aron pagsulti kang Juda niini, “Ania ang pangtimbre, apil ang higot niini, ug ang baston. Ang tag-iya niini mao ang amahan sa akong gimabdos. Palihog, susiha kon kang kinsa kini.”

26Nailhan ni Juda nga iya kadtong mga butang busa miingon siya, “Wala siyay sala. Ako ang nakasala38:26 Wala siyay sala. Ako ang nakasala: sa literal, Mas matarong pa siya kay kanako. kay wala ko siya ipaasawa sa akong anak nga si Shela.” Ug wala na mousab ug pakigdulog si Juda kang Tamar.

27Sa dihang hapit na manganak si Tamar, nadiskobrehan niya nga kaluha ang iyang gimabdos. 28Sa dihang nagbati na siya, migawas ang kamot sa usa ka bata. Gihiktan kini sa mananabang ug higot nga pula aron mahibaloan nga siya ang una nga natawo. 29Apan gisulod pagbalik sa bata ang iyang kamot ug ang iyang kaluha mao ang una nga migawas. Miingon ang mananabang, “Nagdali ka gayod sa paggawas.” Busa ginganlan ang bata ug Perez.38:29 Perez: Ang buot ipasabot sa Hebreo, nagdali sa paggawas. 30Unya migawas usab ang iyang kaluha nga may higot nga pula sa iyang kamot. Ginganlan siya ug Zera.38:30 Zera: Ang buot ipasabot sa Hebreo, nagadan-ag o pula kaayo.

King James Version

Genesis 38:1-30

1And it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from his brethren, and turned in to a certain Adullamite, whose name was Hirah. 2And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was Shuah; and he took her, and went in unto her. 3And she conceived, and bare a son; and he called his name Er. 4And she conceived again, and bare a son; and she called his name Onan. 5And she yet again conceived, and bare a son; and called his name Shelah: and he was at Chezib, when she bare him. 6And Judah took a wife for Er his firstborn, whose name was Tamar. 7And Er, Judah’s firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD slew him. 8And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother. 9And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. 10And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him also.38.10 displeased…: Heb. was evil in the eyes of the Lord 11Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter in law, Remain a widow at thy father’s house, till Shelah my son be grown: for he said, Lest peradventure he die also, as his brethren did. And Tamar went and dwelt in her father’s house.

12¶ And in process of time the daughter of Shuah Judah’s wife died; and Judah was comforted, and went up unto his sheepshearers to Timnath, he and his friend Hirah the Adullamite.38.12 in process…: Heb. the days were multiplied 13And it was told Tamar, saying, Behold thy father in law goeth up to Timnath to shear his sheep. 14And she put her widow’s garments off from her, and covered her with a vail, and wrapped herself, and sat in an open place, which is by the way to Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown, and she was not given unto him to wife.38.14 an open…: Heb. the door of eyes, or, of Enajim 15When Judah saw her, he thought her to be an harlot; because she had covered her face. 16And he turned unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray thee, let me come in unto thee; (for he knew not that she was his daughter in law.) And she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest come in unto me? 17And he said, I will send thee a kid from the flock. And she said, Wilt thou give me a pledge, till thou send it?38.17 a kid: Heb. a kid of the goats 18And he said, What pledge shall I give thee? And she said, Thy signet, and thy bracelets, and thy staff that is in thine hand. And he gave it her, and came in unto her, and she conceived by him. 19And she arose, and went away, and laid by her vail from her, and put on the garments of her widowhood. 20And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his friend the Adullamite, to receive his pledge from the woman’s hand: but he found her not. 21Then he 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.38.21 openly: or, in Enajim 22And he returned to Judah, and said, I cannot find her; and also the men of the place said, that there was no harlot in this place. 23And Judah said, Let her take it to her, lest we be shamed: behold, I sent this kid, and thou hast not found her.38.23 be shamed: Heb. become a contempt

24¶ And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt. 25When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff. 26And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more.

27¶ And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins were in her womb. 28And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out his hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a scarlet thread, saying, This came out first. 29And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, How hast thou broken forth? this breach be upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.38.29 How hast…: or, Wherefore hast thou made this breach against thee?38.29 Pharez: that is A breach 30And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zarah.
