Judged; vindicated, daughter of Jacob by Leah, and sister of Simeon and Levi (Genesis 30:21 ). She was seduced by Shechem, the son of Hamor, the Hivite chief, when Jacob's camp was in the neighbourhood of Shechem. This led to the terrible revenge of Simeon and Levi in putting the Shechemites to death (Genesis 34 ). Jacob makes frequent reference to this deed of blood with abhorrence and regret (Genesis 34:30 ; 49:5-7 ). She is mentioned among the rest of Jacob's family that went down into Egypt (Genesis 46:8,15 ).
