Simeon and Levi Kill the Men of Shechem

1 Dinah was the daughter Leah had by Jacob. Dinah went out to visit the women of the land. 2 Hamor the Hivite was the ruler of that area. When his son Shechem saw Dinah, he took her and raped her. 3 Then his heart longed for Jacob's daughter Dinah. He fell in love with her and spoke tenderly to her. 4 Shechem said to his father Hamor, "Get me that woman. I want her to be my wife." 5 Jacob heard that his daughter Dinah had been made "unclean." His sons were in the fields with his livestock. So he kept quiet about it until they came home. 6 Then Shechem's father Hamor went out to talk with Jacob. 7 Jacob's sons had come in from the fields. They came as soon as they heard what had happened. They were filled with sadness and anger. Shechem had done a very terrible thing. He had forced Jacob's daughter to have sex with him. He had done something that should never be done in Israel.
