6 T And Hamor the father of Shechem went out unto Jacob to commune with him.

7 And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it: and the men were grieved, and they were g very wroth, because he had wrought folly h in Israel, in lying with Jacob's daughter; which thing ought not to be done.i

And Hamor communed with them, saying, The soul of my son Shechem longeth for your daughter: I pray you give her him to wife.

9 And make ye marriages with us, and give your daughters unto us, and take our daughters unto you.

10 And ye shall dwell with us: and the land shall be before you; k dwell and trade ye therein, and get you possessions therem.

12 Ask me never so much dowry / and gift, and I will give according as ye shall say unto me: but give me the damsel to wife.

13 And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father deceitfully, m and said, because he had defiled Dinah their sister:

25 And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore, that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brethren, took each man his sword, u and came upon the city boldly, and slew all the males.
