ND Dina, the daughter of Lea, whom she bore to Jacob, went forth to observe the daughters of the inhabitants. 2 And Sychem the son of Emmor the Evite, the ruler of the land, saw her, and took her and lay with her, and humbled her. 3 And he was attached to the soul of Dina the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and he spoke kindly to the damsel. 4 Sychem spoke to Emmor his father, saying, Take for me this damsel to wife. 5 And Jacob heard that the son of Emmor had defiled Dina his daughter (now his sons were with his cattle in the plain). And Jacob was silent until they came. 6 And Emmor the father of Sychem went forth to Jacob, to speak to him. 7 And the sons of Jacob came from the plain; and when they heard, the men were deeply pained, and it was very grievous to them, because [the man] wrought folly in Israel, having lain with the daughter of Jacob, and so it must not be. 8 And Emmor spoke to them, saying, Sychem my son has chosen in his heart your daughter; give her therefore to him for a wife, 9 and intermarry with us. Give us your daughters, and take our daughters for your sons. 10 And dwell in the midst of us; and, behold, the land is spacious before you, dwell in it, and trade, and get possessions in it.

ΕΞΗΛΘΕ δὲ Δείνα ἡ θυγάτηρ Λείας, ἣν ἔτεκε τῷ ᾿Ιακώβ, καταμαθεῖν τὰς θυγατέρας τῶν ἐγχωρίων. 2 καὶ εἶδεν αὐτὴν Συχὲμ ὁ υἱὸς ᾿Εμμὼρ ὁ Εὐαῖος, ὁ ἄρχων τῆς γῆς καὶ λαβὼν αὐτήν, ἐκοιμήθη μετ᾿ αὐτῆς καὶ ἐταπείνωσεν αὐτήν. 3 καὶ προσέσχε τῇ ψυχῇ Δείνας τῆς θυγατρὸς ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ ἠγάπησε τὴν παρθένον καὶ ἐλάλησε κατὰ τὴν διάνοιαν τῆς παρθένου αὐτῇ. 4 εἶπε Συχὲμ πρὸς ᾿Εμμὼρ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ λέγων· λαβέ μοι τὴν παῖδα ταύτην εἰς γυναῖκα. 5 ᾿Ιακὼβ δὲ ἤκουσεν, ὅτι ἐμίανεν ὁ υἱὸς ᾿Εμμὼρ Δείναν τὴν θυγατέρα αὐτοῦ· οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ ἦσαν μετὰ τῶν κτηνῶν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ. παρεσιώπησε δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἕως τοῦ ἐλθεῖν αὐτούς. 6 ἐξῆλθε δὲ ᾿Εμμὼρ ὁ πατὴρ Συχὲμ πρὸς ᾿Ιακὼβ λαλῆσαι αὐτῷ. 7 οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἦλθον ἐκ τοῦ πεδίου· ὡς δὲ ἤκουσαν, κατενύγησαν οἱ ἄνδρες, καὶ λυπηρὸν ἦν αὐτοῖς σφόδρα, ὅτι ἄσχημον ἐποίησεν ἐν ᾿Ισραὴλ κοιμηθεὶς μετὰ τῆς θυγατρός ᾿Ιακώβ, καὶ οὐχ οὕτως ἔσται. 8 καὶ ἐλάλησεν ᾿Εμμὼρ αὐτοῖς λέγων· Συχὲμ ὁ υἱός μου προείλετο τῇ ψυχῇ τὴν θυγατέρα ὑμῶν· δότε οὖν αὐτὴν αὐτῷ γυναῖκα 9 καὶ ἐπιγαμβρεύσασθε ἡμῖν· τὰς θυγατέρας ὑμῶν δότε ἡμῖν καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας ἡμῶν λάβετε τοῖς υἱοῖς ὑμῶν. 10 καὶ ἐν ἡμῖν κατοικεῖτε, καὶ ἡ γῆ ἰδοὺ πλατεῖα ἐναντίον ὑμῶν· κατοικεῖτε καὶ ἐμπορεύεσθε ἐπ᾿ αὐτῆς καὶ ἐγκτᾶσθε ἐν αὐτῇ.
