“And the yong man deferred not to doe the thing, because he had delight in Iacobs daughter: and he was more honourable then all the house of his father.”

King James Version (KJV)

Genesis 34:19

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. 18. And their words pleased Hamor, and Shechem Hamors sonne. 19. And the yong man deferred not to doe the thing, because he had delight in Iacobs daughter: and he was more honourable then all the house of his father. 20. ¶ And Hamor and Shechem his sonne came vnto the gate of their citie, and communed with the men of their citie, saying: 21. These men are peaceable with vs, therefore let them dwel in the land, and trade therein: for the land, behold, it is large enough for them: let vs take their daughters to vs for wiues, and let vs giue them our daughters. 22. Onely herein will the men consent vnto vs, for to dwell with vs to be one people, if euery male among vs bee circumcised, as they are circumcised.
