Resource Toolbox
(judged, acquitted ), the daughter of Jacob by Leah. ( Genesis 30:21 ) (B.C. about 1751.) She accompanied her father from Mesopotamia to Canaan, and, having ventured among the inhabitants, was violated by Shechem the son of Hamor, the chieftain of the territory in which her father had settled. Genesis 34 . Shechem proposed to make the usual reparation by paying a sum to the father and marrying her. (Genesis 34:12 ) This proposal was accepted, the sons of Jacob demanding, as a condition of the proposed union, the circumcision of the Shechemites. They therefore assented; and on the third day, when the pain and fever resulting from the operation were at the highest, Simeon and Levi, own brothers of Dinah, attacked them unexpectedly, slew all the males, and plundered their city.
