Genesis 34:28

Genesis 34:28

They took their sheep, their oxen, and their asses
The Shechemites hoped to have the cattle and substance of Jacob's family, and in a hypocritical manner submitted to circumcision, for the sake of worldly advantage; for that, and pleasing their prince, seem to be the only views they had in it; wherefore, in this there is a just retaliation of them in Providence:

and that which [was] in the city, and that which [was] in the field;
the cattle that were kept at home, and those that were brought up in the field, all became a prey.
