1 Now Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she had borne to Jacob, went out to visit the women of the land; 1 Now Dinah, the daughter Leah had borne to Jacob, went out to visit the women of the land.
2 and when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, the prince of the land, saw her, he seized 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 was drawn to Dinah the daughter of Jacob; he loved the maiden and spoke tenderly to her. 3 His heart was drawn to Dinah daughter of Jacob, and he loved the girl and spoke tenderly to her.
4 So Shechem spoke to his father Hamor, saying, "Get me this maiden for my wife." 4 And Shechem said to his father Hamor, "Get me this girl as my wife."
5 Now Jacob heard that he had defiled his daughter Dinah; but his sons were with his cattle in the field, so 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 to Jacob to speak with him. 6 Then Shechem's father Hamor went out to talk with Jacob.
