34 Now Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she had borne to Jacob, went out to [a]visit the daughters of the land.2 When Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, the prince of the land, saw her, he took her and lay with her [b]by force.3 [c]He was deeply attracted to Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the girl and [d]spoke tenderly to her.4 So Shechem spoke to his father Hamor, saying, “Get me this young girl for a wife.”5 Now Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter; but his sons were with his livestock in the field, so Jacob kept silent until they came in.6 Then Hamor the father of Shechem went out to Jacob to speak with him.7 Now the sons of Jacob came in from the field when they heard it; and the men were grieved, and they were very angry because he had done a [e]disgraceful thing in Israel [f]by lying with Jacob’s daughter, for such a thing ought not to be done.
Genesis 34:25-27New American Standard Bible (NASB)
25 Now it came about on the third day, when they were in pain, that two of Jacob’s sons, Simeon and Levi, Dinah’s brothers, each took his sword and came upon the city unawares, and killed every male.26 They killed Hamor and his son Shechem with the edge of the sword, and took Dinah from Shechem’s house, and went forth.27 Jacob’s sons came upon the slain and looted the city, because they had defiled their sister.
