Bible: Genesis 38:12-15

38:12 After some time 1  Judah’s wife, the daughter of Shua, died. After Judah was consoled, he left for Timnah to visit his sheepshearers, along with 2  his friend Hirah the Adullamite. 38:13 Tamar was told, 3 Look, your father-in-law is going up 4  to Timnah to shear his sheep.” 38:14 So she removed her widow’s clothes and covered herself with a veil. She wrapped herself and sat at the entrance to Enaim which is on the way to Timnah. (She did this because 5  she saw that she had not been given to Shelah as a wife, even though he had now grown up.) 6 

38:15 When Judah saw her, he thought she was a prostitute 7  because she had covered her face.
