- 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 disgraceful R997 F649 thing in Israel by F650 lying with Jacob's daughter, for such a thing ought not to be done. 8 But Hamor spoke with them, saying, "The soul of my son Shechem longs for your daughter; please give her to him in F651 marriage. 9 "Intermarry with us; give your daughters to us and take our daughters for yourselves. 10 "Thus you shall live F652 with us, and the R998 land shall be open before you; live F652 and trade R999 in it and acquire R1000 property in it." 11 Shechem also said to her father and to her brothers, "If I find favor in your sight, then I will give whatever you say to me. 12 "Ask me ever so much bridal payment and gift, and I will give according as you say to me; but give me the girl in F653 marriage." 13 But Jacob's sons answered Shechem and his father Hamor with deceit, because he had defiled Dinah their sister. 14 They said to them, "We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one R1001 who is uncircumcised, for that would be a disgrace to us. 15 "Only on this condition will we consent to you: if you will become like us, in that every male of you be circumcised, 16 then we will give our daughters to you, and we will take your daughters for ourselves, and we will live F654 with you and become one people. 17 "But if you will not listen to us to be circumcised, then we will take our daughter and go."
