This verse describes one of the most shocking incidents recorded in the Bible: Shechem the son of Hamor, the ruler of the city, kidnapped and raped Dinah, Jacob’s only daughter. A biblical 16th c. commentator, the Sforno, adds that the fact that Shechem acted without shame, and with total immunity, was demonstrative of the fact that he was engaged in what was considered acceptable behavior in his city. Such an immoral society stands in stark contrast to the exemplary behavior demanded of the nation of Jacob, which is seen to this day in the democratic, moral and just Nation of Israel.
