Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Dina the daughter of Lia went out to see the women of that country. 1 Now Dinah, the daughter Leah had borne to Jacob, went out to visit the women of the land.
2 And when Sichem the son of Hemor the Hevite, the prince of that land, saw her, he was in love with her: and took her away, and lay with her, ravishing the virgin. 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 was fast knit unto her; and whereas she was sad, he comforted her with sweet words. 3 His heart was drawn to Dinah daughter of Jacob, and he loved the girl and spoke tenderly to her.
4 And going to Hemor his father, he said: Get me this damsel to wife. 4 And Shechem said to his father Hamor, "Get me this girl as my wife."
5 But when Jacob had heard this, his sons being absent, and employed in feeding the cattle, he held his peace till they came back. 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 when Hemor the father of Sichem was come out to speak to Jacob, 6 Then Shechem's father Hamor went out to talk with Jacob.
