Genesis 34:1-7 (Complete Jewish Bible)

View In My Bible
1 One time Dinah the daughter of Le'ah, whom she had borne to Ya'akov, went out to visit the local girls; 2 and Sh'khem the son of Hamor the Hivi, the local ruler, saw her, grabbed her, raped her and humiliated her. 3 But actually he was strongly attracted to Dinah the daughter of Ya'akov; he fell in love with the girl and tried to win her affection. 4 Sh'khem spoke with his father Hamor and said, "Get this girl for me; I want her to be my wife." 5 When Ya'akov heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter, his sons were with his livestock in the field; so Ya'akov restrained himself until they came. 6 Hamor the father of Sh'khem went out to Ya'akov to speak with him 7 just as Ya'akov's sons were coming in from the field. When they heard what had happened, the men were saddened and were very angry at the outrage this man had committed against Isra'el by raping Ya'akov's daughter, something that is simply not done.
