13 The sons of Jacob answered Shechem and his father Hamor deceitfully,LXIV because he had defiled their sisterLXV Dinah. 14 They said to them, “We cannotLXVI do this thing,LXVII to give our sister to oneLXVIII who is uncircumcised,LXIX for that would be a disgraceLXX to us.
15 Only on this condition will we consentLXXI to you: that you will become as we are and every maleLXXII among you be circumcised.LXXIII 16 Then we will give our daughters to you, and we will take your daughters for ourselves, and we will live among you and become oneLXXIV people.LXXV 17 But if you will not listen to us and be circumcised, then we will take our daughter and be gone.”LXXVI
21 “These peopleLXXXIX are friendlyXC with us; let them live in the land and trade in it, for the landXCI is largeXCII enoughXCIII forXCIV them; let us take their daughters in marriage, and let us give them our daughters.
