him. 7 And 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 wrought folly in Israel, in lying with Jacob's daughter; which thing ought not to be done. 8 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 untous, and take our daughters unto you. 10 And ye shall dwell with us: and the land shall be before you ; dwell and trade ye therein, and get you possessions therein. 11 And Shechem said unto her father, and unto herbrethren, Let me find grace in your eyes, and what ye shall say unto me, I will give. 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 deccitfully, and said (because he had defiled Dinah their sister) 14 And they said unto them, We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one that is uncircumcised: for that were a reproach unto us: 15 But in this will we consent unto you: If ye will be as we be, that every male of you be circumcised; 16 Then will we give our daughters unto you, and we will take your daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will become one people. 17 But if ye will not hearken untous, to be circumcised; then will we take our tlaughter, and we will be gone. 18. And their words pleased Hamor, and Shechem Hamor’s son. 19 And the young man deferred not to do the thing, because he had delight in Jacob’s daughter: and he was moré honourable than all the house of his father. 20 " And Hamor and Shechem his son game unto the gate of their city, and communed with thq men of their city, saying,
