VIII. MAIN BODY:

Genesis 38:8 (Amplified Bible)

Then Judah told Onan, Marry your brother’s widow; live with her and raise offspring for your brother.

Genesis 38:8 (New International Version)

Then Judah said to Onan, "Lie with your brother's wife and fulfill your duty to her as a brother-in-law to produce offspring for your brother."

A. Judah told Onan, second to Er, to marry brother's widow

"Then Judah told Onan, Marry your brother’s widow;"

Deuteronomy 25:5-6 (Amplified Bible)

If brothers live together and one of them dies and has no son, his wife shall not be married outside the family to a stranger [an excluded man]. Her husband’s brother shall go in to her and take her as his wife and perform the duty of a husband’s brother to her.

And the firstborn son shall succeed to the name of the dead brother, that his name may not be blotted out of Israel.

Onan has been commanded by his father Judah to perform the Mosaic code called Lex Leviratus as a recognized custom during those days. The existence of the practice has been traced in different frames among Indians, Persians, and other nations of Asia and Africa—and raise up seed to thy brother. (Source: The Pulpit Commentary) Purpose: to preserve the name of his deceased brother that died childless (Source: Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible)

According to Jamieson, Fausset & Brown Commentary, Lex Leviratus is "the first instance of a custom, which was afterwards incorporated among the laws of Moses, that when a husband died leaving a widow, his brother next of age was to marry her, and the issue, if any, was to be served heir to the deceased."

Onan was very conscious of his personality and personal dignity rather than conscious of GOD's Grace and Protection upon his life, disobeyed his father, Judah.

Psalms 97:11 (Amplified Bible)

Light is sown for the [uncompromisingly] righteous and strewn along their pathway, and joy for the upright in heart [the irrepressible joy which comes from consciousness of His favor and protection].
