Judah then said to his daughter-in-law Tamar, "Live as a widow in your father's house until my son Shelah grows up." For he thought, "He may die too, just like his brothers." So Tamar went to live in her father's house.
"Tamar, Judah's daughter-in-law, bore him Perez and Zerah. Judah had five sons in all." -
1 Chronicles 2:4
"About three months later Judah was told, "Your daughter-in-law Tamar is guilty of prostitution, and as a result she is now pregnant." Judah said, "Bring her out and have her burned to death!"" -
"But if a priest's daughter becomes a widow or is divorced, yet has no children, and she returns to live in her father's house as in her youth, she may eat of her father's food. No unauthorized person, however, may eat any of it." -
"Then he asked, "Whose daughter are you? Please tell me, is there room in your father's house for us to spend the night?"" -
""Judah, your brothers will praise you; your hand will be on the neck of your enemies; your father's sons will bow down to you." -
