American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. 1 Now Dinah, the daughter Leah had borne to Jacob, went out to visit the women of the land.
2 And Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, the prince of the land, saw her; And he took her, and lay with her, and humbled her. 2 When Shechem son of Hamor the Hivite, the ruler of that area, saw her, he took her and violated her.
3 And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel. 3 His heart was drawn to Dinah daughter of Jacob, and he loved the girl and spoke tenderly to her.
4 And Shechem spake unto his father Hamor, saying, Get me this damsel to wife. 4 And Shechem said to his father Hamor, "Get me this girl as my wife."
5 Now Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter; and his sons were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace until they came. 5 When Jacob heard that his daughter Dinah had been defiled, his sons were in the fields with his livestock; so he kept quiet about it until they came home.
6 And Hamor the father of Shechem went out unto Jacob to commune with him. 6 Then Shechem's father Hamor went out to talk with Jacob.
