Genesis 34


1  And Dinah1783 the daughter1323 of Leah,3812 which834 she bore3205 unto Jacob,3290 went out3318 to see7200 the daughters1323 of the land.776

2  And when Shechem7928 the son1121 of Hamor2544 the Hivite,2340 prince5387 of the country,776 saw7200 her, he took3947 her, and lay with7901 her, and defiled6031 her.

3  And his soul5315 cleaved1692 unto Dinah1783 the daughter1323 of Jacob,3290 and he loved157 853 the damsel,5291 and spoke1696 kindly5921 3820 unto the damsel.5291

4  And Shechem7928 spoke559 unto413 his father1 Hamor,2544 saying,559 Get3947 me 853 this2063 damsel3207 to wife.802

5  And Jacob3290 heard8085 that3588 he had defiled2930 853 Dinah1783 his daughter:1323 now his sons1121 were1961 with854 his cattle4735 in the field:7704 and Jacob3290 held his peace2790 until5704 they were come.935

6  And Hamor2544 the father1 of Shechem7927 went out3318 unto413 Jacob3290 to commune1696 with854 him.

7  And the sons1121 of Jacob3290 came935 out of4480 the field7704 when they heard8085 it: and the men376 were grieved,6087 and they were very wroth,2734 3966 because3588 he had wrought6213 folly5039 in Israel3478 in lying with7901 853 Jacob's3290 daughter;1323 which thing3651 ought not3808 to be done.6213

8  And Hamor2544 communed1696 with854 them, saying,559 The soul5315 of my son1121 Shechem7928 longeth2836 for your daughter:1323 I pray you4994 give5414 her him to wife.802

9  And make ye marriages2859 with854 us, and give5414 your daughters1323 unto us, and take3947 our daughters1323 unto you.

10  And ye shall dwell3427 with854 us: and the land776 shall be1961 before6440 you; dwell3427 and trade5503 ye therein, and get you possessions270 therein.

11  And Shechem7928 said559 unto413 her father1 and unto413 her brethren,251 Let me find4672 grace2580 in your eyes,5869 and what834 ye shall say559 unto413 me I will give.5414

12  Ask7235 5921 me never so much3966 dowry4119 and gift,4976 and I will give5414 according as834 ye shall say559 unto413 me: but give5414 me 853 the damsel5291 to wife.802

13  And the sons1121 of Jacob3290 answered6030 853 Shechem7928 and Hamor2544 his father1 deceitfully,4820 and said,1696 because834 he had defiled2930 853 Dinah1783 their sister:269

14  And they said559 unto413 them, We cannot3808 3201 do6213 this2088 thing,1697 to give5414 853 our sister269 to one376 that834 is uncircumcised;6190 for3588 that1931 were a reproach2781 unto us:

15  But389 in this2063 will we consent225 unto you: If518 ye will be1961 as we be, that every3605 male2145 of you be circumcised;4135

16  Then will we give5414 853 our daughters1323 unto you, and we will take3947 your daughters1323 to us, and we will dwell3427 with854 you, and we will become1961 one259 people.5971

17  But if518 ye will not3808 hearken8085 unto413 us, to be circumcised;4135 then will we take3947 853 our daughter,1323 and we will be gone.1980

18  And their words1697 pleased3190 5869 Hamor,2544 and Shechem7928 Hamor's2544 son.1121

19  And the young man5288 deferred309 not3808 to do6213 the thing,1697 because3588 he had delight2654 in Jacob's3290 daughter:1323 and he1931 was more honorable3513 than all4480 3605 the house1004 of his father.1

20  And Hamor2544 and Shechem7928 his son1121 came935 unto413 the gate8179 of their city,5892 and communed1696 with413 the men376 of their city,5892 saying,559

21  These428 men376 are peaceable8003 with854 us; therefore let them dwell3427 in the land,776 and trade5503 therein; for the land,776 behold,2009 it is large enough7342 3027 for6440 them; let us take3947 853 their daughters1323 to us for wives,802 and let us give5414 them our daughters.1323

22  Only389 herein2063 will the men376 consent225 unto us for to dwell3427 with854 us, to be1961 one259 people,5971 if every3605 male2145 among us be circumcised,4135 as834 they1992 are circumcised.4135

23  Shall not3808 their cattle4735 and their substance7075 and every3605 beast929 of theirs be ours? only389 let us consent225 unto them, and they will dwell3427 with854 us.

24  And unto413 Hamor2544 and unto413 Shechem7928 his son1121 hearkened8085 all3605 that went out3318 of the gate8179 of his city;5892 and every3605 male2145 was circumcised,4135 all3605 that went out3318 of the gate8179 of his city.5892

25  And it came to pass1961 on the third7992 day,3117 when they were1961 sore,3510 that two8147 of the sons1121 of Jacob,3290 Simeon8095 and Levi,3878 Dinah's1783 brethren,251 took3947 each man376 his sword,2719 and came935 upon5921 the city5892 boldly,983 and slew2026 all3605 the males.2145

26  And they slew2026 Hamor2544 and Shechem7928 his son1121 with the edge6310 of the sword,2719 and took3947 853 Dinah1783 out of Shechem's7928 house,4480 1004 and went out.3318

27  The sons1121 of Jacob3290 came935 upon5921 the slain,2491 and spoiled962 the city,5892 because834 they had defiled2930 their sister.269

28  They took3947 853 their sheep,6629 and their oxen,1241 and their asses,2543 and that which834 was in the city,5892 and that which834 was in the field,7704

29  And all3605 their wealth,2428 and all3605 their little ones,2945 and their wives802 took they captive,7617 and spoiled962 even all3605 that834 was in the house.1004

30  And Jacob3290 said559 to413 Simeon8095 and Levi,3878 Ye have troubled5916 me to make me to stink887 among the inhabitants3427 of the land,776 among the Canaanites3669 and the Perizzites:6522 and I589 being few4962 in number,4557 they shall gather themselves together622 against5921 me, and slay5221 me; and I shall be destroyed,8045 I589 and my house.1004

31  And they said,559 Should he deal with6213 853 our sister269 as with an harlot?2181


1 ἐξῆλθεν δὲ Δινα ἡ θυγάτηρ Λειας ἣν ἔτεκεν τῷ Ιακωβ καταμαθεῖν τὰς θυγατέρας τῶν ἐγχωρίων

2 καὶ εἶδεν αὐτὴν Συχεμ ὁ υἱὸς Εμμωρ ὁ Χορραῖος ὁ ἄρχων τῆς γῆς καὶ λαβὼν αὐτὴν ἐκοιμήθη μετ᾽ αὐτῆς καὶ ἐταπείνωσεν αὐτήν

3 καὶ προσέσχεν τῇ ψυχῇ Δινας τῆς θυγατρὸς Ιακωβ καὶ ἠγάπησεν τὴν παρθένον καὶ ἐλάλησεν κατὰ τὴν διάνοιαν τῆς παρθένου αὐτῇ

4 εἶπεν δὲ Συχεμ πρὸς Εμμωρ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ λέγων λαβέ μοι τὴν παιδίσκην ταύτην εἰς γυναῖκα

5 Ιακωβ δὲ ἤκουσεν ὅτι ἐμίανεν ὁ υἱὸς Εμμωρ Διναν τὴν θυγατέρα αὐτοῦ οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ ἦσαν μετὰ τῶν κτηνῶν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ παρεσιώπησεν δὲ Ιακωβ ἕως τοῦ ἐλθεῖν αὐτούς

6 ἐξῆλθεν δὲ Εμμωρ ὁ πατὴρ Συχεμ πρὸς Ιακωβ λαλῆσαι αὐτῷ

7 οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ Ιακωβ ἦλθον ἐκ τοῦ πεδίου ὡς δὲ ἤκουσαν κατενύχθησαν οἱ ἄνδρες καὶ λυπηρὸν ἦν αὐτοῖς σφόδρα ὅτι ἄσχημον ἐποίησεν ἐν Ισραηλ κοιμηθεὶς μετὰ τῆς θυγατρὸς Ιακωβ καὶ οὐχ οὕτως ἔσται

8 καὶ ἐλάλησεν Εμμωρ αὐτοῖς λέγων Συχεμ ὁ υἱός μου προείλατο τῇ ψυχῇ τὴν θυγατέρα ὑμῶν δότε οὖν αὐτὴν αὐτῷ γυναῖκα

9 ἐπιγαμβρεύσασθε ἡμῖν τὰς θυγατέρας ὑμῶν δότε ἡμῖν καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας ἡμῶν λάβετε τοῖς υἱοῖς ὑμῶν

10 καὶ ἐν ἡμῖν κατοικεῖτε καὶ ἡ γῆ ἰδοὺ πλατεῖα ἐναντίον ὑμῶν κατοικεῖτε καὶ ἐμπορεύεσθε ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς καὶ ἐγκτήσασθε ἐν αὐτῇ

11 εἶπεν δὲ Συχεμ πρὸς τὸν πατέρα αὐτῆς καὶ πρὸς τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτῆς εὕροιμι χάριν ἐναντίον ὑμῶν καὶ ὃ ἐὰν εἴπητε δώσομεν

12 πληθύνατε τὴν φερνὴν σφόδρα καὶ δώσω καθότι ἂν εἴπητέ μοι καὶ δώσετέ μοι τὴν παῖδα ταύτην εἰς γυναῖκα

13 ἀπεκρίθησαν δὲ οἱ υἱοὶ Ιακωβ τῷ Συχεμ καὶ Εμμωρ τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ μετὰ δόλου καὶ ἐλάλησαν αὐτοῖς ὅτι ἐμίαναν Διναν τὴν ἀδελφὴν αὐτῶν

14 καὶ εἶπαν αὐτοῖς Συμεων καὶ Λευι οἱ ἀδελφοὶ Δινας υἱοὶ δὲ Λειας οὐ δυνησόμεθα ποιῆσαι τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο δοῦναι τὴν ἀδελφὴν ἡμῶν ἀνθρώπῳ ὃς ἔχει ἀκροβυστίαν ἔστιν γὰρ ὄνειδος ἡμῖν

15 ἐν τούτῳ ὁμοιωθησόμεθα ὑμῖν καὶ κατοικήσομεν ἐν ὑμῖν ἐὰν γένησθε ὡς ἡμεῖς καὶ ὑμεῖς ἐν τῷ περιτμηθῆναι ὑμῶν πᾶν ἀρσενικόν

16 καὶ δώσομεν τὰς θυγατέρας ἡμῶν ὑμῖν καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν θυγατέρων ὑμῶν λημψόμεθα ἡμῖν γυναῖκας καὶ οἰκήσομεν παρ᾽ ὑμῖν καὶ ἐσόμεθα ὡς γένος ἕν

17 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ εἰσακούσητε ἡμῶν τοῦ περιτέμνεσθαι λαβόντες τὰς θυγατέρας ἡμῶν ἀπελευσόμεθα

18 καὶ ἤρεσαν οἱ λόγοι ἐναντίον Εμμωρ καὶ ἐναντίον Συχεμ τοῦ υἱοῦ Εμμωρ

19 καὶ οὐκ ἐχρόνισεν ὁ νεανίσκος τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο ἐνέκειτο γὰρ τῇ θυγατρὶ Ιακωβ αὐτὸς δὲ ἦν ἐνδοξότατος πάντων τῶν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ

20 ἦλθεν δὲ Εμμωρ καὶ Συχεμ ὁ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ πρὸς τὴν πύλην τῆς πόλεως αὐτῶν καὶ ἐλάλησαν πρὸς τοὺς ἄνδρας τῆς πόλεως αὐτῶν λέγοντες

21 οἱ ἄνθρωποι οὗτοι εἰρηνικοί εἰσιν μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν οἰκείτωσαν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἐμπορευέσθωσαν αὐτήν ἡ δὲ γῆ ἰδοὺ πλατεῖα ἐναντίον αὐτῶν τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῶν λημψόμεθα ἡμῖν γυναῖκας καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας ἡμῶν δώσομεν αὐτοῖς

22 μόνον ἐν τούτῳ ὁμοιωθήσονται ἡμῖν οἱ ἄνθρωποι τοῦ κατοικεῖν μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν ὥστε εἶναι λαὸν ἕνα ἐν τῷ περιτέμνεσθαι ἡμῶν πᾶν ἀρσενικόν καθὰ καὶ αὐτοὶ περιτέτμηνται

23 καὶ τὰ κτήνη αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ τετράποδα οὐχ ἡμῶν ἔσται μόνον ἐν τούτῳ ὁμοιωθῶμεν αὐτοῖς καὶ οἰκήσουσιν μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν

24 καὶ εἰσήκουσαν Εμμωρ καὶ Συχεμ τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ πάντες οἱ ἐκπορευόμενοι τὴν πύλην τῆς πόλεως αὐτῶν καὶ περιετέμοντο τὴν σάρκα τῆς ἀκροβυστίας αὐτῶν πᾶς ἄρσην

25 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ ὅτε ἦσαν ἐν τῷ πόνῳ ἔλαβον οἱ δύο υἱοὶ Ιακωβ Συμεων καὶ Λευι οἱ ἀδελφοὶ Δινας ἕκαστος τὴν μάχαιραν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰσῆλθον εἰς τὴν πόλιν ἀσφαλῶς καὶ ἀπέκτειναν πᾶν ἀρσενικόν

26 τόν τε Εμμωρ καὶ Συχεμ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἀπέκτειναν ἐν στόματι μαχαίρας καὶ ἔλαβον τὴν Διναν ἐκ τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ Συχεμ καὶ ἐξῆλθον

27 οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ Ιακωβ εἰσῆλθον ἐπὶ τοὺς τραυματίας καὶ διήρπασαν τὴν πόλιν ἐν ᾗ ἐμίαναν Διναν τὴν ἀδελφὴν αὐτῶν

28 καὶ τὰ πρόβατα αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς βόας αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς ὄνους αὐτῶν ὅσα τε ἦν ἐν τῇ πόλει καὶ ὅσα ἦν ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ ἔλαβον

29 καὶ πάντα τὰ σώματα αὐτῶν καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν ἀποσκευὴν αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας αὐτῶν ᾐχμαλώτευσαν καὶ διήρπασαν ὅσα τε ἦν ἐν τῇ πόλει καὶ ὅσα ἦν ἐν ταῖς οἰκίαις

30 εἶπεν δὲ Ιακωβ Συμεων καὶ Λευι μισητόν με πεποιήκατε ὥστε πονηρόν με εἶναι πᾶσιν τοῖς κατοικοῦσιν τὴν γῆν ἔν τε τοῖς Χαναναίοις καὶ τοῖς Φερεζαίοις ἐγὼ δὲ ὀλιγοστός εἰμι ἐν ἀριθμῷ καὶ συναχθέντες ἐπ᾽ ἐμὲ συγκόψουσίν με καὶ ἐκτριβήσομαι ἐγὼ καὶ ὁ οἶκός μου

31 οἱ δὲ εἶπαν ἀλλ᾽ ὡσεὶ πόρνῃ χρήσωνται τῇ ἀδελφῇ ἡμῶν

1 Egressa est autem Dina filia Liæ ut videret mulieres regionis illius.

2 Quam cum vidisset Sichem filius Hemor Hevæi, princeps terræ illius, adamavit eam: et rapuit, et dormivit cum illa, vi opprimens virginem.

3 Et conglutinata est anima ejus cum ea, tristemque delinivit blanditiis.

4 Et pergens ad Hemor patrem suum: Accipe, inquit, mihi puellam hanc conjugem.

5 Quod cum audisset Jacob absentibus filiis, et in pastu pecorum occupatis, siluit donec redirent.

6 Egresso autem Hemor patre Sichem ut loqueretur ad Jacob,

7 ecce filii ejus veniebant de agro: auditoque quod acciderat, irati sunt valde, eo quod fœdam rem operatus esset in Israël et, violata filia Jacob, rem illicitam perpetrasset.

8 Locutus est itaque Hemor ad eos: Sichem filii mei adhæsit anima filiæ vestræ: date eam illi uxorem:

9 et jungamus vicissim connubia: filias vestras tradite nobis, et filias nostras accipite,

10 et habitate nobiscum: terra in potestate vestra est: exercete, negotiamini, et possidete eam.

11 Sed et Sichem ad patrem et ad fratres ejus ait: Inveniam gratiam coram vobis: et quæcumque statueritis, dabo:

12 augete dotem, et munera postulate, et libenter tribuam quod petieritis: tantum date mihi puellam hanc uxorem.

13 Responderunt filii Jacob Sichem et patri ejus in dolo, sævientes ob stuprum sororis:

14 Non possumus facere quod petitis, nec dare sororem nostram homini incircumciso: quod illicitum et nefarium est apud nos.

15 Sed in hoc valebimus fœderari, si volueritis esse similes nostri, et circumcidatur in vobis omne masculini sexus;

16 tunc dabimus et accipiemus mutuo filias vestras ac nostras: et habitabimus vobiscum, erimusque unus populus.

17 Si autem circumcidi nolueritis, tollemus filiam nostram, et recedemus.

18 Placuit oblatio eorum Hemor, et Sichem filio ejus,

19 nec distulit adolescens quin statim quod petebatur expleret: amabat enim puellam valde, et ipse erat inclytus in omni domo patris sui.

20 Ingressique portam urbis, locuti sunt ad populum:

21 Viri isti pacifici sunt, et volunt habitare nobiscum: negotientur in terra, et exerceant eam, quæ spatiosa et lata cultoribus indiget: filias eorum accipiemus uxores, et nostras illis dabimus.

22 Unum est quo differtur tantum bonum: si circumcidamus masculos nostros, ritum gentis imitantes.

23 Et substantia eorum, et pecora, et cuncta quæ possident, nostra erunt: tantum in hoc acquiescamus, et habitantes simul, unum efficiemus populum.

24 Assensique sunt omnes, circumcisis cunctis maribus.

25 Et ecce, die tertio, quando gravissimus vulnerum dolor est: arreptis duo filii Jacob, Simeon et Levi fratres Dinæ, gladiis, ingressi sunt urbem confidenter: interfectisque omnibus masculis,

26 Hemor et Sichem pariter necaverunt, tollentes Dinam de domo Sichem sororem suam.

27 Quibus egressis, irruerunt super occisos ceteri filii Jacob: et depopulati sunt urbem in ultionem stupri.

28 Oves eorum, et armenta, et asinos, cunctaque vastantes quæ in domibus et in agris erant,

29 parvulos quoque eorum et uxores duxerunt captivas.

30 Quibus patratis audacter, Jacob dixit ad Simeon et Levi: Turbastis me, et odiosum fecistis me Chananæis, et Pherezæis habitatoribus terræ hujus: nos pauci sumus; illi congregati percutient me, et delebor ego, et domus mea.

31 Responderunt: Numquid ut scorto abuti debuere sorore nostra?
