1 And Dinah the daughter of Leah, to whom she gave·​·birth for Jacob, went·​·out to see the daughters of the land.

2 And Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, the chief of the land, saw her, and took her, and lay with her, and pressured her.

3 And his soul stuck to Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spoke upon the heart of the damsel.

4 And Shechem said to Hamor his father, saying, Fetch me this girl for a woman.

5 And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter; and his sons were with his livestock in the field; and Jacob was·​·silent until they came.

6 And Hamor the father of Shechem went·​·out to Jacob to speak with him.

7 And the sons of Jacob came from the field as they heard it, and the men were grieved, and they were· very ·incensed, because he had done folly in Israel, in lying with Jacob’s daughter, and so it should not be done.

8 And Hamor spoke with them, saying, Shechem my son, his soul delights in your daughter; give her, I pray, to him for a woman.

9 And make·​·marriages with us; give your daughters to us, and take our daughters to you.

10 And you shall dwell with us, and the land shall be before you; dwell ye, and range through it trading, and have·​·possession in it.

11 And Shechem said to her father and to her brothers, Let me find grace in your eyes, and what you say to me I will give.

12 Multiply on me exceedingly a dowry and a gift, and I will give as you say to me; and give me the damsel for a woman.

13 And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father with deceit, and spoke, because he had defiled Dinah their sister.

14 And they said to them, We are· not ·able do this word, to give our sister to a man that has a foreskin, because this would be a reproach to us.

15 Surely in this will we consent to you, if you be as we to circumcise of you every male.

16 And we will give our daughters to you, and will take your daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will be for one people.

17 And if you will not hearken to us to circumcise, then we will take our daughter and go.

18 And their words were·​·good in the eyes of Hamor, and in the eyes of Shechem the son of Hamor.

19 And the lad delayed not to do the word, for he delighted in the daughter of Jacob; and he was honored above all the house of his father.

20 And Hamor and Shechem his son came to the gate of their city, and spoke to the men of their city, saying,

21 These men are peaceable with us, and let them dwell in the land, and range through it trading, and behold the land is broad in spaces before them; let us take their daughters to us for women, and let us give our daughters to them.

22 Surely in this will the men consent to us to dwell with us, to be for one people, in every male being circumcised of us, as they are circumcised.

23 Their livestock, and what they had bought, and all their beast, will they not be ours? Only let us consent to them, and they will dwell with us.

24 And they hearkened to Hamor and to Shechem his son, all who went·​·out of the gate of his city; and they circumcised every male, all who went·​·out of the gate of his city.

25 And it was, on the third day, when they were·​·in·​·pain, that the two sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, brothers of Dinah, took a man his sword, and came upon the city confidently, and killed every male.

26 And they killed Hamor and Shechem his son by the mouth of the sword, and took Dinah from the house of Shechem, and went·​·out.

27 The sons of Jacob came upon those who were slain, and plundered the city, because they had defiled their sister.

28 Their flocks and their herds and their donkeys, and what was in the city, and what was in the field, they took;

29 and all their belongings, and all their infants, and their women, they took·​·captive and plundered, and all that was in the house.

30 And Jacob said to Simeon and to Levi, You have troubled me, to make me stink among the dweller of the land, among the Canaanite and among the Perizzite; and I am as mortals in number*, and they will be gathered against me, and will smite me, and I shall be blotted·​·out, I and my house.

31 And they said, Shall he make our sister as a harlot?
