NET © Notes

tn Heb “his soul stuck to [or “joined with”],” meaning Shechem became very attached to Dinah emotionally.

tn Heb “and he spoke to the heart of the young woman,” which apparently refers in this context to tender, romantic speech (Hos 2:14). Another option is to translate the expression “he reassured the young woman” (see Judg 19:3, 2 Sam 19:7; cf. NEB “comforted her”).
