创世记 34

底娜受辱

1一天,利亚给雅各所生的女儿底娜到外面去见当地的女子。 当地首领希未人哈抹的儿子示剑看到她,就抓住她,强行玷污了她。 他恋慕雅各的女儿底娜,就用甜言蜜语讨她欢心。 他求父亲哈抹为他说亲,把底娜娶过来。 消息传到雅各耳中时,他的儿子们正在田野放牧。他只好忍气吞声,等儿子们回来再作打算。 示剑的父亲哈抹来和雅各商议。 雅各的儿子们一听说这事,就从田野赶回来。大家都非常愤怒,因为示剑不该对以色列家做这丑事——玷污雅各的女儿。

哈抹跟他们商议说:“我儿子示剑爱慕你们家的女儿,请你们把女儿嫁给他吧! 我们可以互相通婚,你们可以把女儿嫁给我们的儿子,也可以娶我们的女儿为妻。 10 你们可以在我们这里安顿下来,这片土地就在你们面前,住在这里做买卖、置产业吧。” 11 示剑对底娜的父亲和她的弟兄们说:“请你们恩待我,你们要什么,我都给你们。 12 只要你们答应把女儿嫁给我,无论你们要多少聘金和礼物,我必如数奉上。”

雅各之子计杀示剑人

13 雅各的儿子们因为示剑玷污了他们的妹妹底娜,就假意对示剑和他的父亲哈抹说: 14 “我们不能把妹妹嫁给没有受过割礼的人,这对我们是一种羞辱。 15 除非你们所有的男子都跟我们一样受割礼, 16 我们才能答应和你们通婚,共同生活,结成一个民族。 17 如果你们不肯这样做,我们就把妹妹带走。”

18 哈抹父子欣然答应。 19 示剑毫不迟延地照办,因为他热恋底娜。在哈抹家族中,他最受人尊重。 20 哈抹父子来到城门口,对那城的居民说: 21 “这些人跟我们相处和睦,就让他们在这里定居、做买卖吧。我们这里有足够的地方可以容纳他们,我们可以和他们通婚。 22 可是,他们有一个条件,就是要我们所有的男子和他们一样接受割礼,他们才答应和我们一起生活,结成一个民族。 23 到时候,他们的财产和牛羊等所有牲畜不全归我们了吗?我们同意他们吧,这样他们就会在我们这里定居。” 24 在城门进出的人听了哈抹父子的话,都表示赞同。于是,城里的男子都接受了割礼。

25 到了第三天,他们伤口正疼痛的时候,雅各的两个儿子——底娜的哥哥西缅和利未拿着利剑,乘众人没有防备,潜入城中,杀掉了所有的男子, 26 包括哈抹和示剑,从示剑家里带走了底娜。 27 雅各的儿子又到城里掳掠,因为他们的妹妹在那里被人玷污。 28 他们抢走牛群、羊群、驴群和城里城外所有的东西, 29 并带走所有财物、妇孺以及房屋里的一切。 30 雅各责备西缅和利未说:“你们为什么要给我惹麻烦,使我在当地的迦南人和比利洗人中留下臭名呢?我们人数很少,要是他们联手来攻击我们,我们全家必遭灭门之祸。” 31 他们说:“他怎么能把我们的妹妹当妓女对待?”

Genesis 34

Revenge against Shechem

1One day Dinah, the daughter of Jacob and Leah, went to visit some of the young women who lived in the area. But when the local prince, Shechem son of Hamor the Hivite, saw Dinah, he seized her and raped her. But then he fell in love with her, and he tried to win her affection with tender words. He said to his father, Hamor, “Get me this young girl. I want to marry her.”

Soon Jacob heard that Shechem had defiled his daughter, Dinah. But since his sons were out in the fields herding his livestock, he said nothing until they returned. Hamor, Shechem’s father, came to discuss the matter with Jacob. Meanwhile, Jacob’s sons had come in from the field as soon as they heard what had happened. They were shocked and furious that their sister had been raped. Shechem had done a disgraceful thing against Jacob’s family,[a] something that should never be done.

Hamor tried to speak with Jacob and his sons. “My son Shechem is truly in love with your daughter,” he said. “Please let him marry her. In fact, let’s arrange other marriages, too. You give us your daughters for our sons, and we will give you our daughters for your sons. 10 And you may live among us; the land is open to you! Settle here and trade with us. And feel free to buy property in the area.”

11 Then Shechem himself spoke to Dinah’s father and brothers. “Please be kind to me, and let me marry her,” he begged. “I will give you whatever you ask. 12 No matter what dowry or gift you demand, I will gladly pay it—just give me the girl as my wife.”

13 But since Shechem had defiled their sister, Dinah, Jacob’s sons responded deceitfully to Shechem and his father, Hamor. 14 They said to them, “We couldn’t possibly allow this, because you’re not circumcised. It would be a disgrace for our sister to marry a man like you! 15 But here is a solution. If every man among you will be circumcised like we are, 16 then we will give you our daughters, and we’ll take your daughters for ourselves. We will live among you and become one people. 17 But if you don’t agree to be circumcised, we will take her and be on our way.”

18 Hamor and his son Shechem agreed to their proposal. 19 Shechem wasted no time in acting on this request, for he wanted Jacob’s daughter desperately. Shechem was a highly respected member of his family, 20 and he went with his father, Hamor, to present this proposal to the leaders at the town gate.

21 “These men are our friends,” they said. “Let’s invite them to live here among us and trade freely. Look, the land is large enough to hold them. We can take their daughters as wives and let them marry ours. 22 But they will consider staying here and becoming one people with us only if all of our men are circumcised, just as they are. 23 But if we do this, all their livestock and possessions will eventually be ours. Come, let’s agree to their terms and let them settle here among us.”

24 So all the men in the town council agreed with Hamor and Shechem, and every male in the town was circumcised. 25 But three days later, when their wounds were still sore, two of Jacob’s sons, Simeon and Levi, who were Dinah’s full brothers, took their swords and entered the town without opposition. Then they slaughtered every male there, 26 including Hamor and his son Shechem. They killed them with their swords, then took Dinah from Shechem’s house and returned to their camp.

27 Meanwhile, the rest of Jacob’s sons arrived. Finding the men slaughtered, they plundered the town because their sister had been defiled there. 28 They seized all the flocks and herds and donkeys—everything they could lay their hands on, both inside the town and outside in the fields. 29 They looted all their wealth and plundered their houses. They also took all their little children and wives and led them away as captives.

30 Afterward Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, “You have ruined me! You’ve made me stink among all the people of this land—among all the Canaanites and Perizzites. We are so few that they will join forces and crush us. I will be ruined, and my entire household will be wiped out!”

31 “But why should we let him treat our sister like a prostitute?” they retorted angrily.
