“And Hamor communed with them, saying, The soule of my sonne Shechem longeth for your daughter: I pray you giue her him to wife.”

King James Version (KJV)

Genesis 34:8

5. And Iacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter (now his sonnes were with his cattel in the field) and Iacob helde his peace vntill they were come. 6. ¶ And Hamor the father of Shechem went out vnto Iacob to commune with him. 7. And the sonnes of Iacob came out of the field when they heard it, and the men were grieued: and they were very wroth, because hee had wrought folly in Israel, in lying with Iacobs daughter; which thing ought not to be done. 8. And Hamor communed with them, saying, The soule of my sonne Shechem longeth for your daughter: I pray you giue her him to wife. 9. And make ye mariages with vs, and giue your daughters vnto vs, and take our daughters vnto you. 10. And ye shall dwell with vs, and the land shall be before you: dwell and trade you therein, and get you possessions therein. 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.
