Genesis 34:17-27

NLT 17 But if you don’t agree to be circumcised, we will take her and be on our way.” NIV 17 But if you will not agree to be circumcised, we’ll take our sister and go.” NLT 18 Hamor and his son Shechem agreed to their proposal. NIV 18 Their proposal seemed good to Hamor and his son Shechem. NLT 19 Shechem wasted no time in acting on this request, for he wanted Jacob’s daughter desperately. Shechem was a highly respected member of his family, NIV 19 The young man, who was the most honored of all his father’s family, lost no time in doing what they said, because he was delighted with Jacob’s daughter. NLT 20 and he went with his father, Hamor, to present this proposal to the leaders at the town gate. NIV 20 So Hamor and his son Shechem went to the gate of their city to speak to the men of their city. NLT 21 “These men are our friends,” they said. “Let’s invite them to live here among us and trade freely. Look, the land is large enough to hold them. We can take their daughters as wives and let them marry ours. NIV 21 “These men are friendly toward us,” they said. “Let them live in our land and trade in it; the land has plenty of room for them. We can marry their daughters and they can marry ours. NLT 22 But they will consider staying here and becoming one people with us only if all of our men are circumcised, just as they are. NIV 22 But the men will agree to live with us as one people only on the condition that our males be circumcised, as they themselves are. NLT 23 But if we do this, all their livestock and possessions will eventually be ours. Come, let’s agree to their terms and let them settle here among us.” NIV 23 Won’t their livestock, their property and all their other animals become ours? So let us agree to their terms, and they will settle among us.” NLT 24 So all the men in the town council agreed with Hamor and Shechem, and every male in the town was circumcised. NIV 24 All the men who went out of the city gate agreed with Hamor and his son Shechem, and every male in the city was circumcised. NLT 25 But three days later, when their wounds were still sore, two of Jacob’s sons, Simeon and Levi, who were Dinah’s full brothers, took their swords and entered the town without opposition. Then they slaughtered every male there, NIV 25 Three days later, while all of them were still in pain, two of Jacob’s sons, Simeon and Levi, Dinah’s brothers, took their swords and attacked the unsuspecting city, killing every male. NLT 26 including Hamor and his son Shechem. They killed them with their swords, then took Dinah from Shechem’s house and returned to their camp. NIV 26 They put Hamor and his son Shechem to the sword and took Dinah from Shechem’s house and left. NLT 27 Meanwhile, the rest of Jacob’s sons arrived. Finding the men slaughtered, they plundered the town because their sister had been defiled there. NIV 27 The sons of Jacob came upon the dead bodies and looted the city where their sister had been defiled.
