Bible: Genesis 34:25-30

34:25 In three days, when they were still in pain, two of Jacob’s sons, Simeon and Levi, Dinah’s brothers, each took his sword 1  and went to the unsuspecting city 2  and slaughtered every male. 34:26 They killed Hamor and his son Shechem with the sword, took Dinah from Shechem’s house, and left. 34:27 Jacob’s sons killed them 3  and looted the city because their sister had been violated. 4  34:28 They took their flocks, herds, and donkeys, as well as everything in the city and in the surrounding fields. 5  34:29 They captured as plunder 6  all their wealth, all their little ones, and their wives, including everything in the houses.

34:30 Then Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, “You have brought ruin 7  on me by making me a foul odor 8  among the inhabitants of the land – among the Canaanites and the Perizzites. I 9  am few in number; they will join forces against me and attack me, and both I and my family will be destroyed!
