Genesis 34:1-7 (Common English Bible)

View In My Bible
1 Dinah, the daughter whom Leah had borne to Jacob, went out to meet the women of that country. 2 When Shechem the son of the Hivite Hamor and the country's prince saw her, he took her, slept with her, and humiliated her. 3 He was drawn to Dinah, Jacob's daughter. He loved the young woman and tried to win her heart. 4 Shechem said to his father Hamor, "Get this girl for me as my wife." 5 Now Jacob heard that Shechem defiled his daughter Dinah; but his sons were with the animals in the countryside, so he decided to keep quiet until they got back. 6 Meanwhile, Hamor, Shechem's father, went out to Jacob to speak with him. 7 Just then, Jacob's sons got back from the countryside. When they heard what had happened, they were outraged and very angry, because Shechem had disgraced Israel by sleeping with Jacob's daughter. Such things are simply not done.
