While he waited, Hamor father of Shechem went to talk with Jacob.
When Jacob's sons heard what had happened, they came in from the field. They were very angry that Shechem had done such a wicked thing to Israel. It was wrong for him to have sexual relations with Jacob's daughter; a thing like this should not be done.
But Hamor talked to Dinah's brothers and said, "My son Shechem is deeply in love with Dinah. Please let him marry her.
Marry our people. Give your women to our men as wives and take our women for your men as wives.
You can live in the same land with us. You will be free to own land and to trade here."
