1 UDina, indodakazi kaLeya amzalela yona uJakobe, waphuma ukuyobona amadodakazi alelo zwe.
2 UShekemi indodana kaHamori umHivi, inkosi yezwe, wambona, wamthatha, walala naye, wamona.
3 Inhliziyo yakhe yabambelela kuDina indodakazi kaJakobe, wayithanda intombi, wakhuluma kuyo inhliziyo yentombi.
4 UShekemi wakhuluma kuyise uHamori, wathi: “Ngithathele le ntombazana, ibe ngumkami.”
5 UJakobe wezwa ukuthi ungcolisile indodakazi yakhe uDina; amadodana akhe ayesezinkomeni endle; uJakobe wathula, aze afika.
6 UHamori uyise kaShekemi waphumela kuJakobe ukuyokhuluma naye.
7 Amadodana kaJakobe abuya endle esezwile lokho; abantu badabuka, bathukuthela kakhulu, ngokuba ubenze ubuwula kwa-Israyeli ngokulala nendodakazi kaJakobe, okungenakwenziwa.
8 UHamori wakhuluma nabo, wathi: “Inhliziyo yendodana yami uShekemi iyabambelela endodakazini yenu; ake nimuphe yona, ibe ngumkakhe.
9 Ganiselanani nathi, nisiphe amadodakazi enu, nizithathele amadodakazi ethu.
10 Niyakuhlala kithi; izwe liyakuba sebusweni benu; yakhani, nithengiselane, nifuye kulo.”
11 UShekemi wayesethi kuyise nakubanewabo: “Ake ngifumane umusa emehlweni enu; lokho eniyakukusho kimi, ngiyakuninika khona.
12 Bizani kimi ilobolo noma lingakanani kanye nesipho, ngiyakuninika njengokusho kwenu kimi; kodwa ngipheni intombi ibe ngumkami.”
13 Amadodana kaJakobe abaphendula oShekemi noHamori uyise ngobuqili, akhuluma, njengokuba ebemngcolisile uDina udadewabo,
14 athi kubo: “Asinakwenza lokhu, ukunika udadewethu kumuntu ongasokwanga, ngokuba lokho kuyihlazo kithina.
15 Kepha ngalokho singanivumela: uma nizakuba njengathi, kusokwe bonke abesilisa bakini,
16 siyakuninika amadodakazi ethu, sizithathele amadodakazi enu, sihlale nani, sibe yisizwe sinye.
17 Kepha uma ningasilaleli, nisokwe, siyakuthatha indodakazi yethu, sihambe.”
18 Amazwi abo aba mahle koHamori noShekemi indodana kaHamori.
19 Le nsizwa ayilibalanga ukwenza lokho, ngokuba yayethabela indodakazi kaJakobe; yayinodumo kunabo bonke abendlu kayise.
20 OHamori noShekemi indodana yakhe beza ngasesangweni lomuzi, bakhuluma namadoda omuzi wabo, bathi:
21 “Labo bantu bahlezi ngokuthula nathi; ngalokho mabahlale ezweni, balihambe, ngokuba bheka, izwe libanzi inxa zombili phambi kwabo; asizithathele amadodakazi abo abe ngomkethu, sibaphe amadodakazi ethu.
22 Kuphela ngalokho bayasivumela laba bantu ukuhlala nathi, sibe yisizwe sinye, ukuthi bonke abesilisa bakithi basokwe, njengalokho bona besokiwe.
23 Imihlambi yabo, nempahla yabo, nezinkomo zabo akuyikuba ngokwethu na? Masibavumele kuphela, bakhe kithi.”
24 Bonke abaphuma ngesango lomuzi wakhe balalela oHamori noShekemi indodana yakhe; bonke abesilisa basokwa, bonke abaphuma ngesango lomuzi wakhe.
25 Kwathi ngosuku lwesithathu bese nobuhlungu, amadodana amabili kaJakobe, oSimeyoni noLevi, abanewabo bakaDina, bathatha, kwaba yilowo nalowo inkemba yakhe, bahlasela umuzi ngesibindi, babulala bonke abesilisa.
26 Babulala oHamori noShekemi indodana yakhe ngosiko lwenkemba, bakhipha uDina endlini kaShekemi, bahamba.
27 Amadodana kaJakobe ayesefica ababuleweyo, aphanga umuzi, ngokuba babengcolisile udadewabo.
28 Athatha izimvu zabo, nezinkomo zabo, nezimbongolo zabo, okwakusemzini nokwakusendle,
29 nemfuyo yonke yabo; athumba abantwana babo nawomkabo, abaphanga kanye nakho konke okusendlini.
30 UJakobe wayesethi koSimeyoni noLevi: “Ningihluphile, ningenzile ukuba nginukele kabi abantu bezwe, amaKhanani namaPherizi, lokhu ngiyingcosana, bayakungihlanganyela, bangibulale, ngichithwe mina nendlu yami.”
31 Base bethi: “Ngabe bemenza udadewethu isifebe na?”
