NCV 1 At this time Dinah, the daughter of Leah and Jacob, went out to visit the women of the land. NIV 1 Now Dinah, the daughter Leah had borne to Jacob, went out to visit the women of the land. NCV 2 When Shechem son of Hamor the Hivite, the ruler of the land, saw her, he took her and forced her to have sexual relations with him. NIV 2 When Shechem son of Hamor the Hivite, the ruler of that area, saw her, he took her and raped her. NCV 3 Shechem fell in love with Dinah, and he spoke kindly to her. NIV 3 His heart was drawn to Dinah daughter of Jacob; he loved the young woman and spoke tenderly to her. NCV 4 He told his father, Hamor, "Please get this girl for me so I can marry her." NIV 4 And Shechem said to his father Hamor, “Get me this girl as my wife.” NCV 5 Jacob learned how Shechem had disgraced his daughter, but since his sons were out in the field with the cattle, Jacob said nothing until they came home. NIV 5 When Jacob heard that his daughter Dinah had been defiled, his sons were in the fields with his livestock; so he did nothing about it until they came home. NCV 6 While he waited, Hamor father of Shechem went to talk with Jacob. NIV 6 Then Shechem’s father Hamor went out to talk with Jacob. NCV 7 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. NIV 7 Meanwhile, Jacob’s sons had come in from the fields as soon as they heard what had happened. They were shocked and furious, because Shechem had done an outrageous thing in Israel by sleeping with Jacob’s daughter—a thing that should not be done. NCV 8 But Hamor talked to Dinah's brothers and said, "My son Shechem is deeply in love with Dinah. Please let him marry her. NIV 8 But Hamor said to them, “My son Shechem has his heart set on your daughter. Please give her to him as his wife. NCV 9 Marry our people. Give your women to our men as wives and take our women for your men as wives. NIV 9 Intermarry with us; give us your daughters and take our daughters for yourselves. NCV 10 You can live in the same land with us. You will be free to own land and to trade here." NIV 10 You can settle among us; the land is open to you. Live in it, trade in it, and acquire property in it.” NCV 11 Shechem also talked to Jacob and to Dinah's brothers and said, "Please accept my offer. I will give anything you ask. NIV 11 Then Shechem said to Dinah’s father and brothers, “Let me find favor in your eyes, and I will give you whatever you ask.
