BACK NEXT

Judah {Celebrated} answers, โ€œWhat pledged collateral do you want me to leave with you?โ€
Tall-Palm answers, โ€œLeave your signet ring, your bracelets, and your staff from your hand.โ€
So [lust-crazed] Judah gives all of that [personally-identifying] treasure to Tall-Palm.
Then he โ€˜getsโ€™ her [right there in the road]!
He gets her pregnant!

Fornication

Note: Was Shiny watching Judah jump this "whore," or did the fornicators duck behind a boulder or find a cave?
