CJB 1 One time Dinah the daughter of Le'ah, whom she had borne to Ya'akov, went out to visit the local girls; NIV 1 Now Dinah, the daughter Leah had borne to Jacob, went out to visit the women of the land. CJB 2 and Sh'khem the son of Hamor the Hivi, the local ruler, saw her, grabbed her, raped her and humiliated her. NIV 2 When Shechem son of Hamor the Hivite, the ruler of that area, saw her, he took her and violated her.

NIV 3 His heart was drawn to Dinah daughter of Jacob, and he loved the girl and spoke tenderly to her.
