Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 One time Dinah the daughter of Le'ah, whom she had borne to Ya'akov, went out to visit the local girls; 1 Now Dinah, the daughter Leah had borne to Jacob, went out to visit the women of the land.
2 and Sh'khem the son of Hamor the Hivi, the local ruler, saw her, grabbed her, raped her and humiliated her. 2 When Shechem son of Hamor the Hivite, the ruler of that area, saw her, he took her and violated 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. 3 His heart was drawn to Dinah daughter of Jacob, and he loved the girl and spoke tenderly to her.
4 Sh'khem spoke with his father Hamor and said, "Get this girl for me; I want her to be my wife." 4 And Shechem said to his father Hamor, "Get me this girl as 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. 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 Hamor the father of Sh'khem went out to Ya'akov to speak with him 6 Then Shechem's father Hamor went out to talk with Jacob.
