Bible: Genesis 38:8-10

38:8 Then Judah said to Onan, “Have sexual relations with 1  your brother’s wife and fulfill the duty of a brother-in-law to her so that you may raise 2  up a descendant for your brother.” 3  38:9 But Onan knew that the child 4  would not be considered his. 5  So whenever 6  he had sexual relations with 7  his brother’s wife, he withdrew prematurely 8  so as not to give his brother a descendant. 38:10 What he did was evil in the Lord’s sight, so the Lord 9  killed him too.
