 38:10  38:11
38:11 Judah said to his daughter-in-law Tamar, 'Live as a widow in your father's house until my son Shelah is grown.' He was putting her off because he was concerned that [Shelah], too, would die like his brothers. Tamar left and lived in her father's house.
Vayomer Yehudah le-Tamar kalato shvi almanah veyt-avich ad-yigdal Shelah vni ki amar pen-yamut gam-hu ke'echav vatelech Tamar vateshev beyt aviha.



Commentary:

putting her off
  (Rashi; Sefer HaYashar, p. 128). Literally, 'he said.'
