However, his one daughter, Dinah was raped by the son of the country’s ruler while on a visit to the city. Shechem, the prince of the land falls in love with Dinah and wishes to marry her. The prince attempts to negotiate with Jacob’s sons for Dinah’s hand, making a deal to get his people circumcised so they may intermarry. God decided that boys must be circumcised on the eighth day after being born, and anyone who is not will be “cut off from his people”(17:14). The brothers proceed to slaughter and loot the city during the group recovery. Simeon and Levi have manipulated the sacred act of circumcision to their advantage, and the violence in which the did so proves they are unfit to rule their city.
