Genesis 34:2-4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

When Shechem, son of Hamor the Hivite,[a] the leader of the region, saw her, he seized her and lay with her by force. He was strongly attracted to Dinah, daughter of Jacob, and was in love with the young woman. So he spoke affectionately to her. Shechem said to his father Hamor, “Get me this young woman for a wife.”

  1. 34:2 Hivite: the Greek text has “Horite”; the terms were apparently used indiscriminately to designate the Hurrian or other non-Semitic elements in Palestine.
