Genesis 34

The last chapter of Genesis to be read. I wonder why this one is the last? Its percentage guessed was 47% rather lower than the others. The reason for this may be simply a few words that were the wrong stem from my initial algorithm for guessing the stem from the word. Three errors, שכם can be backside, or rise up early or a name, Shechem (Shekem). חמר if it has the mater ו will be the name Hamor (Xamor) or without a vav will be ass. And אתה could be the stand alone pronoun, you, or could be a particle with a third person feminine pronoun (more rare), i.e. her. Fixing these brought the chapter up to 49% guessed. Not much difference.

Curious to me that נער (lad, lass) is marked as feminine only by vowels. My algorithms ignored vowels so it would have missed the feminine.

Verse 7. The working of outrage and insult can be read in to the text. שׁכב, lie down is rendered as rape שׁגל by JB. Certainly possible, but definitely interpretive. The whole problem is that interpretation determines thoughts and behaviour of those who read the text. And while I do think this is disgraceful and bad behaviour, I have to struggle with what is said, not what I think. The risk of overkill in my spirit is very high.

Genesis 34 Fn Min Max Syll
וַתֵּצֵ֤א דִינָה֙ בַּת־לֵאָ֔ה אֲשֶׁ֥ר יָלְדָ֖ה לְיַעֲקֹ֑ב
לִרְא֖וֹת בִּבְנ֥וֹת הָאָֽרֶץ
1 And Dinah went out, the daughter of Leah, which she gave birth to for Jacob,
to see among the daughters of the land.
3e 4C 16
7
וַיַּ֨רְא אֹתָ֜הּ שְׁכֶ֧ם בֶּן־חֲמ֛וֹר הַֽחִוִּ֖י נְשִׂ֣יא הָאָ֑רֶץ
וַיִּקַּ֥ח אֹתָ֛הּ וַיִּשְׁכַּ֥ב אֹתָ֖הּ וַיְעַנֶּֽהָ
2 And Shechem saw her, the son of Hamor the Hivite, a principal of the land,
and he took her, and lay down with her, and afflicted her.
3c 4B 17
14
וַתִּדְבַּ֣ק נַפְשׁ֔וֹ בְּדִינָ֖ה בַּֽת־יַעֲקֹ֑ב
וַיֶּֽאֱהַב֙ אֶת־הַֽנַּעֲרָ֔ וַיְדַבֵּ֖ר עַל־לֵ֥ב הַֽנַּעֲרָֽ
3 And his very self cleaved to Dinah, the daughter of Jacob,
and he loved the lass, and spoke concerning the heart of the lass.
3e 4B 12
18
וַיֹּ֣אמֶר שְׁכֶ֔ם אֶל־חֲמ֥וֹר אָבִ֖יו לֵאמֹ֑ר
קַֽח־לִ֛י אֶת־הַיַּלְדָּ֥ה הַזֹּ֖את לְאִשָּֽׁה
4 And Shechem said to Hamor, his father, saying,
Get for me this girl for a wife.
3d 4B 12
11
וְיַעֲקֹ֣ב שָׁמַ֗ע כִּ֤י טִמֵּא֙ אֶת־דִּינָ֣ה בִתּ֔וֹ וּבָנָ֛יו הָי֥וּ אֶת־מִקְנֵ֖הוּ בַּשָּׂדֶ֑ה
וְהֶחֱרִ֥שׁ יַעֲקֹ֖ב עַד־בֹּאָֽם
5 And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah, his daughter. And his sons were with their livestock in the field,
and Jacob kept silence until they came.
3d 4C 26
10
וַיֵּצֵ֛א חֲמ֥וֹר אֲבִֽי־שְׁכֶ֖ם אֶֽל־יַעֲקֹ֑ב
לְדַבֵּ֖ר אִתּֽוֹ
6 So Hamor, the father of Shechem, went forth to Jacob,
to speak with him.
3d 4A 13
5
וּבְנֵ֨י יַעֲקֹ֜ב בָּ֤אוּ מִן־הַשָּׂדֶה֙ כְּשָׁמְעָ֔ם וַיִּֽתְעַצְּבוּ֙ הָֽאֲנָשִׁ֔ים וַיִּ֥חַר לָהֶ֖ם מְאֹ֑ד
כִּֽי־נְבָלָ֞ה עָשָׂ֣ה בְיִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל לִשְׁכַּב֙ אֶת־בַּֽת־יַעֲקֹ֔ב וְכֵ֖ן לֹ֥א יֵעָשֶֽׂה
7 And the children of Jacob came from the field when they heard, and the men were tortured. They were very fierce,
for he had acted senselessly in Israel to lie down with the daughter of Jacob. And such is not done.
3e 4C 29
23
וַיְדַבֵּ֥ר חֲמ֖וֹר אִתָּ֣ם לֵאמֹ֑ר
שְׁכֶ֣ם בְּנִ֗י חָֽשְׁקָ֤ה נַפְשׁוֹ֙ בְּבִתְּכֶ֔ם תְּנ֨וּ נָ֥א אֹתָ֛הּ ל֖וֹ לְאִשָּֽׁה
8 And Hamor spoke with them, saying,
Shechem, my son, his very self is attached in your daughter. Give her, please, to him for a wife.
3d 4C 9
20
וְהִֽתְחַתְּנ֖וּ אֹתָ֑נוּ
בְּנֹֽתֵיכֶם֙ תִּתְּנוּ־לָ֔נוּ וְאֶת־בְּנֹתֵ֖ינוּ תִּקְח֥וּ לָכֶֽם
9 And intermarry with us.
Your daughters, you will give to us, and our sons, you will take for you.
3e 4A 7
17
וְאִתָּ֖נוּ תֵּשֵׁ֑בוּ
וְהָאָ֙רֶץ֙ תִּהְיֶ֣ה לִפְנֵיכֶ֔ם שְׁבוּ֙ וּסְחָר֔וּהָ וְהֵֽאָחֲז֖וּ בָּֽהּ
10 And with us you may settle.
And the land will be before you. Settle, and buy and sell, and hold fast within it.
3e 4B 7
21
וַיֹּ֤אמֶר שְׁכֶם֙ אֶל־אָבִ֣יה וְאֶל־אַחֶ֔יהָ אֶמְצָא־חֵ֖ן בְּעֵינֵיכֶ֑ם
וַאֲשֶׁ֥ר תֹּאמְר֛וּ אֵלַ֖י אֶתֵּֽן
11 And Shechem said to her father, and to her kin, May I find grace in your sight,
and what you say to me, I will give.
3d 4C 20
9
הַרְבּ֨וּ עָלַ֤י מְאֹד֙ מֹ֣הַר וּמַתָּ֔ן וְאֶ֨תְּנָ֔ה כַּאֲשֶׁ֥ר תֹּאמְר֖וּ אֵלָ֑י
וּתְנוּ־לִ֥י אֶת־הַֽנַּעֲרָ֖ לְאִשָּֽׁה
12 Increase over me excessive dowry and endowment, and I will give as you say to me,
and you give me the lass for a wife.
3e 4C 21
11
וַיַּעֲנ֨וּ בְנֵֽי־יַעֲקֹ֜ב אֶת־שְׁכֶ֨ם וְאֶת־חֲמ֥וֹר אָבִ֛יו בְּמִרְמָ֖ה וַיְדַבֵּ֑רוּ
אֲשֶׁ֣ר טִמֵּ֔א אֵ֖ת דִּינָ֥ה אֲחֹתָֽם
13 And the children of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father in deception,
and they spoke, in that he had defiled Dinah their sister.
3d 4B 24
10
וַיֹּאמְר֣וּ אֲלֵיהֶ֗ם לֹ֤א נוּכַל֙ לַעֲשׂוֹת֙ הַדָּבָ֣ר הַזֶּ֔ה לָתֵת֙ אֶת־אֲחֹתֵ֔נוּ לְאִ֖ישׁ אֲשֶׁר־ל֣וֹ עָרְלָ֑ה
כִּֽי־חֶרְפָּ֥ה הִ֖וא לָֽנוּ
14 And they said to them, We are not able to act on this word, to grant our sister to a man who has a foreskin,
for a reproach it is to us.
3e 4C 31
6
אַךְ־בְּזֹ֖את נֵא֣וֹת לָכֶ֑ם
אִ֚ם תִּהְי֣וּ כָמֹ֔נוּ לְהִמֹּ֥ל לָכֶ֖ם כָּל־זָכָֽר
15 But in this, we will assent to you.
If you will be as we are, that your every male be circumcised.
3e 4C 7
14
וְנָתַ֤נּוּ אֶת־בְּנֹתֵ֙ינוּ֙ לָכֶ֔ם וְאֶת־בְּנֹתֵיכֶ֖ם נִֽקַּֽח־לָ֑נוּ
וְיָשַׁ֣בְנוּ אִתְּכֶ֔ם וְהָיִ֖ינוּ לְעַ֥ם אֶחָֽד
16 Then we will give our daughters to you, and your daughters, we will take to us,
and we will settle with you, and we will be one people.
3e 4C 21
14
וְאִם־לֹ֧א תִשְׁמְע֛וּ אֵלֵ֖ינוּ לְהִמּ֑וֹל
וְלָקַ֥חְנוּ אֶת־בִּתֵּ֖נוּ וְהָלָֽכְנוּ
17 And if you will not hear us, to be circumcised,
then we will take our daughter and we will go.
3c 4A 12
12
וַיִּֽיטְב֥וּ דִבְרֵיהֶ֖ם בְּעֵינֵ֣י חֲמ֑וֹר
וּבְעֵינֵ֖י שְׁכֶ֥ם בֶּן־חֲמֽוֹר
18 And their words were good in the eyes of Hamor,
and in the eyes of Shechem, the son of Hamor.
3e 4B 11
8
וְלֹֽא־אֵחַ֤ר הַנַּ֙עַר֙ לַעֲשׂ֣וֹת הַדָּבָ֔ר כִּ֥י חָפֵ֖ץ בְּבַֽת־יַעֲקֹ֑ב
וְה֣וּא נִכְבָּ֔ד מִכֹּ֖ל בֵּ֥ית אָבִֽיו
19 And the lad did not delay to act on the matter, for he delighted in the daughter of Jacob,
and he was more glorious than all the house of his father.
3e 4C 20
9
וַיָּבֹ֥א חֲמ֛וֹר וּשְׁכֶ֥ם בְּנ֖וֹ אֶל־שַׁ֣עַר עִירָ֑ם
וַֽיְדַבְּר֛וּ אֶל־אַנְשֵׁ֥י עִירָ֖ם לֵאמֹֽר
20 And Hamor, and Shechem his son, came to the gate of their city,
and they spoke to the men of their city, saying,
3d 4B 14
10
הָאֲנָשִׁ֨ים הָאֵ֜לֶּה שְֽׁלֵמִ֧ים הֵ֣ם אִתָּ֗נוּ וְיֵשְׁב֤וּ בָאָ֙רֶץ֙ וְיִסְחֲר֣וּ אֹתָ֔הּ וְהָאָ֛רֶץ הִנֵּ֥ה רַֽחֲבַת־יָדַ֖יִם לִפְנֵיהֶ֑ם
אֶת־בְּנֹתָם֙ נִקַּֽח־לָ֣נוּ לְנָשִׁ֔ים וְאֶת־בְּנֹתֵ֖ינוּ נִתֵּ֥ן לָהֶֽם
21 These persons, they are peaceable with us, and they will settle in the land, and be its vendors. And the land, behold, is broad of hand before them.
Their daughters, let us take to us to be wives, and our sons, let us give to them.
3c 4C 40
21
אַךְ־בְּ֠זֹאת יֵאֹ֨תוּ לָ֤נוּ הָאֲנָשִׁים֙ לָשֶׁ֣בֶת אִתָּ֔נוּ לִהְי֖וֹת לְעַ֣ם אֶחָ֑ד
בְּהִמּ֥וֹל לָ֙נוּ֙ כָּל־זָכָ֔ר כַּאֲשֶׁ֖ר הֵ֥ם נִמֹּלִֽים
22 But in this the men will assent to us to settle with us to be one people,
if our every male be circumcised as they are circumcised.
3e 4C 24
15
מִקְנֵהֶ֤ם וְקִנְיָנָם֙ וְכָל־בְּהֶמְתָּ֔ם הֲל֥וֹא לָ֖נוּ הֵ֑ם
אַ֚ךְ נֵא֣וֹתָה לָהֶ֔ם וְיֵשְׁב֖וּ אִתָּֽנוּ
23 Their livestock, and their acquisitions, and all their cattle, will they not be ours?
Surely let us assent to them, and let them settle with us.
3e 4C 17
12
וַיִּשְׁמְע֤וּ אֶל־חֲמוֹר֙ וְאֶל־שְׁכֶ֣ם בְּנ֔וֹ כָּל־יֹצְאֵ֖י שַׁ֣עַר עִיר֑וֹ
וַיִּמֹּ֙לוּ֙ כָּל־זָכָ֔ר כָּל־יֹצְאֵ֖י שַׁ֥עַר עִירֽוֹ
24 And they heard Hamor and Shechem, his son, all who came out to the gate of his city.
And every male was circumcised, all who came out to the gate of his city.
3e 4C 20
14
וַיְהִי֩ בַיּ֨וֹם הַשְּׁלִישִׁ֜י בִּֽהְיוֹתָ֣ם כֹּֽאֲבִ֗ים וַיִּקְח֣וּ שְׁנֵֽי־בְנֵי־יַ֠עֲקֹב שִׁמְע֨וֹן וְלֵוִ֜י אֲחֵ֤י דִינָה֙ אִ֣ישׁ חַרְבּ֔וֹ וַיָּבֹ֥אוּ עַל־הָעִ֖יר בֶּ֑טַח
וַיַּֽהַרְג֖וּ כָּל־זָכָֽר
25 And it was on the third day when they were still sore, that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, brothers of Dinah, each took his sword and they came against the city confidently,
and they slew every male.
3e 4C 41
7
וְאֶת־חֲמוֹר֙ וְאֶת־שְׁכֶ֣ם בְּנ֔וֹ הָרְג֖וּ לְפִי־חָ֑רֶב
וַיִּקְח֧וּ אֶת־דִּינָ֛ה מִבֵּ֥ית שְׁכֶ֖ם וַיֵּצֵֽאוּ
26 And Hamor and Shechem, his son, they slew with the edge of the sword,
and they took Dinah from the house of Shechem, and they went out.
3c 4B 15
14
בְּנֵ֣י יַעֲקֹ֗ב בָּ֚אוּ עַל־הַ֣חֲלָלִ֔ים וַיָּבֹ֖זּוּ הָעִ֑יר
אֲשֶׁ֥ר טִמְּא֖וּ אֲחוֹתָֽם
27 The children of Jacob came to the profaned, and they looted the city,
in that they had defiled their sister.
3e 4C 18
7
אֶת־צֹאנָ֥ם וְאֶת־בְּקָרָ֖ם וְאֶת־חֲמֹרֵיהֶּ֑ם
וְאֵ֧ת אֲשֶׁר־בָּעִ֛יר וְאֶת־אֲשֶׁ֥ר בַּשָּׂדֶ֖ה לָקָֽחוּ
28 Their flocks, and their herds, and their asses,
and what was in the city, and what was in the field, they took.
3c 4A 14
16
וְאֶת־כָּל־חֵילָ֤ם וְאֶת־כָּל־טַפָּם֙ וְאֶת־נְשֵׁיהֶ֔ם שָׁב֖וּ וַיָּבֹ֑זּוּ
וְאֵ֖ת כָּל־אֲשֶׁ֥ר בַּבָּֽיִת
29 And all their wealth, and all their little ones, and their wives, they took captive, and looted,
and all that was in the house.
3e 4C 21
8
וַיֹּ֨אמֶר יַעֲקֹ֜ב אֶל־שִׁמְע֣וֹן וְאֶל־לֵוִי֮ עֲכַרְתֶּ֣ם אֹתִי֒ לְהַבְאִישֵׁ֙נִי֙ בְּיֹשֵׁ֣ב הָאָ֔רֶץ בַּֽכְּנַעֲנִ֖י וּבַפְּרִזִּ֑י
וַאֲנִי֙ מְתֵ֣י מִסְפָּ֔ר וְנֶאֶסְפ֤וּ עָלַי֙ וְהִכּ֔וּנִי וְנִשְׁמַדְתִּ֖י אֲנִ֥י וּבֵיתִֽי
30 And Jacob said to Simeon and to Levi, You have agitated me to make me stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanite, and the Perizzite.
And I, men counted, they will be gathered against me, and will strike me, and I will be exterminated, I and my house.
3e 4C 37
26
וַיֹּאמְר֑וּ
הַכְזוֹנָ֕ה יַעֲשֶׂ֖ה אֶת־אֲחוֹתֵֽנוּ
31 And they said,
As a harlot, should they deal with our sister?
3e 4A 3
