“And they saide vnto them, wee cannot doe this thing, to giue our sister to one that is vncircumcised: for that were a reproch vnto vs.”
King James Version (KJV)
11. And Shechem said vnto her father, and vnto her brethren, Let mee finde grace in your eyes, and what yee shall say vnto me, I will giue. 12. Aske mee neuer so much dowrie and gift, and I will giue according as yee shall say vnto mee: but giue me the damsell to wife. 13. And the sonnes of Iacob answered Shechem, and Hamor his father deceitfully, and said, because he had defiled Dinah their sister. 14. And they saide vnto them, wee cannot doe this thing, to giue our sister to one that is vncircumcised: for that were a reproch vnto vs. 15. But in this will we consent vnto you: If ye will be as we be, that euery male of you be circumcised: 16. Then wil we giue our daughters vnto you, and we wil take your daughters to vs, and we will dwell with you, and we will become one people. 17. But if ye will not hearken vnto vs, to be circumcised, then will we take our daughter, and we will be gone.
