Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 38:2

_ _ And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite — Like Esau [Genesis 26:34], this son of Jacob, casting off the restraints of religion, married into a Canaanite family; and it is not surprising that the family which sprang from such an unsuitable connection should be infamous for bold and unblushing wickedness.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 38:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 38:2

He took her — To wife. His father, it should seem, was not consulted, but by his new friend Hirah.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 38:2

And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name [was] Shuah; (b) and he took her, and went in unto her.

(b) A relationship which nonetheless was condemned by God.
