Genesis 34

And Dinah
<01783>
the daughter
<01323>
of Leah
<03812>_,
which she bare
<03205> (8804)
unto Jacob
<03290>_,
went out
<03318> (8799)
to see
<07200> (8800)
the daughters
<01323>
of the land
<0776>_.
And when Shechem
<07927>
the son
<01121>
of Hamor
<02544>
the Hivite
<02340>_,
prince
<05387>
of the country
<0776>_,
saw
<07200> (8799)
her, he took
<03947> (8799)
her, and lay
<07901> (8799)
with her, and defiled her
<06031> (8762)_.
{defiled...: Heb. humbled her}
And his soul
<05315>
clave
<01692> (8799)
unto Dinah
<01783>
the daughter
<01323>
of Jacob
<03290>_,
and he loved
<0157> (8799)
the damsel
<05291>_,
and spake
<01696> (8762)
kindly
<03820>
unto the damsel
<05291>_.
{kindly...: Heb. to the heart of the damsel}
And Shechem
<07927>
spake
<0559> (8799)
unto his father
<01>
Hamor
<02544>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Get
<03947> (8798)
me this damsel
<03207>
to wife
<0802>_.
And Jacob
<03290>
heard
<08085> (8804)
that he had defiled
<02930> (8765)
Dinah
<01783>
his daughter
<01323>_:
now his sons
<01121>
were with his cattle
<04735>
in the field
<07704>_:
and Jacob
<03290>
held his peace
<02790> (8689)
until they were come
<0935> (8800)_.
And Hamor
<02544>
the father
<01>
of Shechem
<07927>
went out
<03318> (8799)
unto Jacob
<03290>
to commune
<01696> (8763)
with
<0854>
him.
And the sons
<01121>
of Jacob
<03290>
came
<0935> (8804)
out of the field
<07704>
when they heard
<08085> (8800)
[it]: and the men
<0582>
were grieved
<06087> (8691)_,
and they were very
<03966>
wroth
<02734> (8799)_,
because he had wrought
<06213> (8804)
folly
<05039>
in Israel
<03478>
in lying
<07901> (8800)
with Jacob's
<03290>
daughter
<01323>_;
which thing ought not to be done
<06213> (8735)_.
And Hamor
<02544>
communed
<01696> (8762)
with them, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The soul
<05315>
of my son
<01121>
Shechem
<07927>
longeth
<02836> (8804)
for your daughter
<01323>_:
I pray you give
<05414> (8798)
her him to wife
<0802>_.
And make ye marriages
<02859> (8690)
with us, [and] give
<05414> (8799)
your daughters
<01323>
unto us, and take
<03947> (8799)
our daughters
<01323>
unto you.
And ye shall dwell
<03427> (8799)
with us: and the land
<0776>
shall be
<01961> (8799)
before you
<06440>_;
dwell
<03427> (8798)
and trade
<05503> (8804)
ye therein, and get you possessions
<0270> (8734)
therein.
And Shechem
<07927>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto her father
<01>
and unto her brethren
<0251>_,
Let me find
<04672> (8799)
grace
<02580>
in your eyes
<05869>_,
and what ye shall say
<0559> (8799)
unto me I will give
<05414> (8799)_.
Ask
<07235> (8685)
me never so much
<03966>
dowry
<04119>
and gift
<04976>_,
and I will give
<05414> (8799)
according as ye shall say
<0559> (8799)
unto me: but give
<05414> (8798)
me the damsel
<05291>
to wife
<0802>_.
And the sons
<01121>
of Jacob
<03290>
answered
<06030> (8799)
Shechem
<07927>
and Hamor
<02544>
his father
<01>
deceitfully
<04820>_,
and said
<01696> (8762)_,
because he had defiled
<02930> (8765)
Dinah
<01783>
their sister
<0269>_:
And they said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, We cannot
<03808> <03201> (8799)
do
<06213> (8800)
this thing
<01697>_,
to give
<05414> (8800)
our sister
<0269>
to one
<0376>
that is uncircumcised
<06190>_;
for that [were] a reproach
<02781>
unto us:
But in this
<02063>
will we consent
<0225> (8735)
unto you: If ye will be as we [be], that every male
<02145>
of you be circumcised
<04135> (8736)_;
Then will we give
<05414> (8804)
our daughters
<01323>
unto you, and we will take
<03947> (8799)
your daughters
<01323>
to us, and we will dwell
<03427> (8804)
with you, and we will become one
<0259>
people
<05971>_.
But if ye will not hearken
<08085> (8799)
unto us, to be circumcised
<04135> (8736)_;
then will we take
<03947> (8804)
our daughter
<01323>_,
and we will be gone
<01980> (8804)_.
And their words
<01697>
pleased
<03190> (8799) <05869>
Hamor
<02544>_,
and Shechem
<07927>
Hamor's
<02544>
son
<01121>_.
And the young man
<05288>
deferred
<0309> (8765)
not to do
<06213> (8800)
the thing
<01697>_,
because he had delight
<02654> (8804)
in Jacob's
<03290>
daughter
<01323>_:
and he [was] more honourable
<03513> (8737)
than all the house
<01004>
of his father
<01>_.
And Hamor
<02544>
and Shechem
<07927>
his son
<01121>
came
<0935> (8799)
unto the gate
<08179>
of their city
<05892>_,
and communed
<01696> (8762)
with the men
<0582>
of their city
<05892>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
These men
<0582>
[are] peaceable
<08003>
with
<0854>
us; therefore let them dwell
<03427> (8799)
in the land
<0776>_,
and trade
<05503> (8799)
therein; for the land
<0776>_,
behold, [it is] large
<07342>
enough
<03027>
for them
<06440>_;
let us take
<03947> (8799)
their daughters
<01323>
to us for wives
<0802>_,
and let us give
<05414> (8799)
them our daughters
<01323>_.
Only herein
<02063>
will the men
<0582>
consent
<0225> (8735)
unto us for to dwell
<03427> (8800)
with us, to be one
<0259>
people
<05971>_,
if every male
<02145>
among us be circumcised
<04135> (8736)_,
as they [are] circumcised
<04135> (8737)_.
[Shall] not their cattle
<04735>
and their substance
<07075>
and every beast
<0929>
of theirs [be] ours? only let us consent
<0225> (8735)
unto them, and they will dwell
<03427> (8799)
with us.
And unto Hamor
<02544>
and unto Shechem
<07927>
his son
<01121>
hearkened
<08085> (8799)
all that went out
<03318> (8802)
of the gate
<08179>
of his city
<05892>_;
and every male
<02145>
was circumcised
<04135> (8735)_,
all that went out
<03318> (8802)
of the gate
<08179>
of his city
<05892>_.
And it came to pass on the third
<07992>
day
<03117>_,
when they were sore
<03510> (8802)_,
that two
<08147>
of the sons
<01121>
of Jacob
<03290>_,
Simeon
<08095>
and Levi
<03878>_,
Dinah's
<01783>
brethren
<0251>_,
took
<03947> (8799)
each man
<0376>
his sword
<02719>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
upon the city
<05892>
boldly
<0983>_,
and slew
<02026> (8799)
all the males
<02145>_.
And they slew
<02026> (8804)
Hamor
<02544>
and Shechem
<07927>
his son
<01121>
with the edge
<06310>
of the sword
<02719>_,
and took
<03947> (0)
Dinah
<01783>
out
<03947> (8799)
of Shechem's
<07927>
house
<01004>_,
and went out
<03318> (8799)_.
{edge: Heb. mouth}
The sons
<01121>
of Jacob
<03290>
came
<0935> (8804)
upon the slain
<02491>_,
and spoiled
<0962> (8799)
the city
<05892>_,
because they had defiled
<02930> (8765)
their sister
<0269>_.
They took
<03947> (8804)
their sheep
<06629>_,
and their oxen
<01241>_,
and their asses
<02543>_,
and that which [was] in the city
<05892>_,
and that which [was] in the field
<07704>_,
And all their wealth
<02428>_,
and all their little ones
<02945>_,
and their wives
<0802>
took they captive
<07617> (8804)_,
and spoiled
<0962> (8799)
even all that [was] in the house
<01004>_.
And Jacob
<03290>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Simeon
<08095>
and Levi
<03878>_,
Ye have troubled
<05916> (8804)
me to make me to stink
<0887> (8687)
among the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of the land
<0776>_,
among the Canaanites
<03669>
and the Perizzites
<06522>_:
and I [being] few
<04962>
in number
<04557>_,
they shall gather themselves together
<0622> (8738)
against me, and slay me
<05221> (8689)_;
and I shall be destroyed
<08045> (8738)_,
I and my house
<01004>_.
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
Should he deal
<06213> (8799)
with our sister
<0269>
as with an harlot
<02181> (8802)_?
