Easton's Bible Dictionary
He-ass, a Hivite from whom Jacob purchased the plot of ground in which Joseph was afterwards buried (Genesis 33:19
). He is called "Emmor" in Acts 7:16
. His son Shechem founded the city of that name which Simeon and Levi destroyed because of his crime in the matter of Dinah, Jacob's daughter (Genesis 34:20
). Hamor and Shechem were also slain (ver. 26).
