1 Dinah, who was Jacob's daughter by Leah, went out to visit some of the women of that region.
Gen 30:21 1Tim 5:13 Gen 26:34 Gen 27:46 Gen 28:6 Gen 30:13 Gen 46:15
2 Shechem son of Hamor the Hivite, headman of the region, saw her, seized her and forced her to sleep with him.
2Sam 11:2 Deut 21:14 Deut 22:24 Deut 22:29 Ezek 22:10-11 Gen 6:2 Gen 10:17
3 He was captivated by Dinah daughter of Jacob; he fell in love with the girl and tried to win her heart.
1Sam 18:1 2Chr 30:22 2Sam 19:7 Hos 2:14 Isa 40:2 Ruth 1:14
4 Accordingly Shechem said to his father Hamor, 'Get me this girl; I want to marry her.'
Judg 14:2 2Sam 13:13 Gen 21:21
5 Meanwhile, Jacob had heard how his daughter Dinah had been dishonoured, but since his sons were out in the countryside with his livestock, Jacob said nothing until they came back.
2Sam 13:22 1Sam 10:27 1Sam 16:11 1Sam 17:15 Gen 30:35 Gen 37:13-14 Lev 10:3
6 Hamor father of Shechem was visiting Jacob to discuss the matter with him,
7 when Jacob's sons returned from the countryside and heard the news; the men were outraged and infuriated that Shechem had insulted Israel by sleeping with Jacob's daughter -- a thing totally unacceptable.
Josh 7:15 Judg 20:6 Deut 22:21 Gen 20:9 Heb 13:4 1Cor 6:18 1Cor 10:8
8 Hamor reasoned with them as follows, 'My son Shechem's heart is set on your daughter. Please allow her to marry him.
1Kgs 11:2 Gen 34:3 Ps 63:1 Ps 84:2 Ps 119:20
9 Intermarry with us; give us your daughters and take our daughters for yourselves.
Deut 7:3 Gen 6:2 Gen 19:14 Gen 24:3 Gen 26:34-35 Gen 27:46
10 We can live together, and the country will be open to you, for you to live in, and move about in, and acquire holdings.'
Gen 13:9 Gen 20:15 Gen 42:34 Gen 47:27 Gen 34:21-23
11 Then Shechem addressed the girl's father and brothers, 'Grant me this favour, and I will give you whatever you ask.
Gen 33:15 Gen 18:3
12 Demand as high a bride-price from me as you please, and I will pay as much as you ask. Only let me marry the girl.'
Exod 22:16-17 1Sam 18:25-27 2Sam 3:14 Deut 22:28-29 Gen 24:53 Gen 29:18 Gen 31:41
13 Jacob's sons gave Shechem and his father Hamor a crafty answer, speaking as they did because he had dishonoured their sister Dinah.
1Thess 5:15 2Sam 13:23-29 Gen 25:27-34 Isa 59:13 Job 13:4 Job 13:7 Judg 15:3
14 'We cannot do this,' they said to them. 'To give our sister to an uncircumcised man would be a disgrace for us.
1Kgs 21:9 1Sam 14:6 1Sam 17:26 1Sam 17:36 2Sam 1:20 2Sam 15:7 Gen 17:11
15 We can agree only on one condition: that you become like us by circumcising all your males.
16 Then we will give you our daughters, taking yours for ourselves; and we will stay with you to make one nation.
17 But if you will not agree to our terms about being circumcised, we shall take our daughter and go.'
18 Hamor and Shechem son of Hamor were pleased with what they heard.
19 The young man did not hesitate about doing this, for he was deeply in love with Jacob's daughter. Moreover he was the most respected member of his entire family.
1Chr 4:9 1Sam 22:14 2Kgs 5:1 Acts 13:50 Acts 17:12 Gen 29:20 Gen 41:20
20 Hamor and his son Shechem went to the gate of their town and spoke to their fellow-townsmen as follows,
Ruth 4:1 2Sam 15:2 Amos 5:10 Amos 5:12 Amos 5:15 Deut 17:5 Gen 22:17
21 'These men are friendly; let them settle in the region and move about freely in it; there is plenty of room here for them; we shall marry their daughters and give our daughters to them.
22 But these men will agree to settle with us and become a single nation only on this condition: that all our males be circumcised like them.
23 Will not the livestock they own, all their animals, become ours? Then let us give our assent to this, so that they can settle with us.'
Prov 1:12-13 1Tim 6:6-10 Acts 19:24-26 John 2:16 John 6:26-27 Prov 23:4-5 Prov 28:20
24 All the citizens of the town agreed to the proposal made by Hamor and his son Shechem, and all the males were circumcised.
Gen 23:10 1Cor 7:19 Gen 17:23 Gen 23:18 Isa 1:10-16 Matt 7:6 Rom 2:28-29
25 Now on the third day, when the men were still in pain, Jacob's two sons Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brothers, each took his sword and advanced unopposed against the town and slaughtered all the males.
Gen 49:5-7 Gen 29:33-34 2Chr 32:25 Josh 5:6 Josh 5:8 Num 31:7 Num 31:17
26 They killed Hamor and his son Shechem with the sword, removed Dinah from Shechem's house and came away.
2Sam 2:26 Deut 32:42 Isa 31:8
27 When Jacob's other sons came on the slain, they pillaged the town in reprisal for the dishonouring of their sister.
1Tim 6:10 Esth 9:10 Esth 9:16 Exod 2:14 Gen 34:2 Gen 34:31 Josh 7:1
28 They seized their flocks, cattle, donkeys, everything else in the town and in the countryside,
Deut 8:17-18 Job 1:15-16 Job 20:5 Num 31:17
29 and all their possessions. They took all their children and wives captive and looted everything to be found in the houses.
30 Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, 'You have done me an ill turn by bringing me into bad odour with the people of the region, the Canaanites and the Perizzites. I have few men, whereas they will unite against me to defeat me and destroy me and my family.'
1Sam 13:4 Exod 5:21 Josh 7:25 Ps 105:12 1Chr 16:19 1Chr 19:6 1Sam 27:12
31 They retorted, 'Should our sister be treated like a whore?'
Prov 6:34 Gen 34:13 Gen 49:7
