    Maybe they raised each other, since they were perfect twins:

    Rashi on Genesis 38:27,

    behold, there were twins: This is written with the full spelling (תאוֹמִים); in the other instance, [with Rebecca,] it is written defectively (תוֹמִם), because one [child, Esau,] was wicked, but these [twins] were both righteous. [From Gen. Rabbah 85:13]

    Rashi missed it, IMO -- The last verses of Ruth list the 3rd Ten Generations, leading with one of the twins: Pharez. Checking further shows that the other twin, Zarah, leads to the Troubler of Israel 'Aachan' who stole the loot and wound up in the fire...Joshua 7:18 and another "4 Generation" clue..

    The "Number 22" identifies the Generation of Jacob, and is used acrostically in Psalms 119, Prov31, Book of Lamentations, etc; something the Bible Wheel uses in its Triple Acrostic endorsement of the 66 books of the Bible. http://cswnet.com/~duxrow/acrostic.htm

    Am looking for a Double-Acrostic (44), so all the '4 generation' slots in scripture are of special interest to me.. prob not to others, but maybe Rashi ?

    I think Zarah (Zerach) healed Jacob:

    Genesis 32:32,
    " v'zerach lo hashemesh" = And the sun rose for him

    What are you smoking, Sylvia? Or what does Gen32:32 have to do with the twins of Judah and Tamar? Maybe a typo? 'Cause the twin Pharez is 24th in pedigree from Adam, but Zarah's Line was snuffed out after his Jericho act.. (Lesson in contrast..)

    Josh 7:24 And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor.

    The name Zarah (=Zerach) means shining, glowing, light, brightness, from "zarach" = to shine, rise (sun), to be found in Genesis 32:32.

    About Jacob's thigh being touched after he wrestled the 'angel', ..That was prior to when we learned about the Spiritual WALK, the Christian WALK.. Began with telling Moses and Joshua to remove their shoes and walk barefoot like Isaiah. Fullness when Jesus walks on water, eh?

    http://www.biblewheel.com/forum/show...3972#post43972

    Gen32:24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.
    32:25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.
