Hamor

Hamor [N] [H] [S]

he-ass, a Hivite from whom Jacob purchased the plot of ground in which Joseph was afterwards buried ( Genesis 33:19 ). He is called "Emmor" in Acts 7:16 . His son Shechem founded the city of that name which Simeon and Levi destroyed because of his crime in the matter of Dinah, Jacob's daughter ( Genesis 34:20 ). Hamor and Shechem were also slain (ver. 26).
