Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Dinah, daughter of Leah, whom she hath borne to Jacob, goeth out to look on 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, son of Hamor the Hivite, a prince of the land, seeth her, and taketh her, and lieth with her, and humbleth 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 cleaveth to Dinah, daughter of Jacob, and he loveth the young person, and speaketh unto the heart of the young person. 3 His heart was drawn to Dinah daughter of Jacob, and he loved the girl and spoke tenderly to her.
4 And Shechem speaketh unto Hamor his father, saying, `Take for me this damsel for a wife.' 4 And Shechem said to his father Hamor, "Get me this girl as my wife."
5 And Jacob hath heard that he hath defiled Dinah his daughter, and his sons were with his cattle in the field, and Jacob kept silent till their coming. 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, father of Shechem, goeth out unto Jacob to speak with him; 6 Then Shechem's father Hamor went out to talk with Jacob.
