The Defiling of Dinah

1And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bore to Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. 2And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her. 3And his soul joined to Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spoke kindly to the damsel. 4And Shechem spoke to his father Hamor, saying, Get me this damsel to wife. 5And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter: now his sons were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace until they were come. 6And Hamor the father of Shechem went out to Jacob to commune with him. 7And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it: and the men were grieved, and they were very wroth, because he had worked folly in Israel in lying with Jacob's daughter: which thing ought not to be done. 8And Hamor communed with them, saying, The soul of my son Shechem longs for your daughter: I pray you give her him to wife. 9And make you marriages with us, and give your daughters to us, and take our daughters to you. 10And you shall dwell with us: and the land shall be before you; dwell and trade you therein, and get you possessions therein. 11And Shechem said to her father and to her brothers, Let me find grace in your eyes, and what you shall say to me I will give. 12Ask me never so much dowry and gift, and I will give according as you shall say to me: but give me the damsel to wife.
