Onan

ONAN (ō'năn, Heb. ’ônān, strong). Second son of Judah by a Canaanite wife who was a daughter of Shua. He refused to consummate a levirate marriage with Tamar, widow of his elder brother Er, who had been wicked, and so the Lord put him to death also, leaving Tamar twice a widow (Gen.38.4-Gen.38.10).
