Genesis 34:1-31

1 ¶ And Dinah, the daughter of Leah, which she gave birth unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. 2 And when Shechem, the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her and lay with her and defiled her. 3 And his soul was joined unto Dinah, the daughter of Jacob, and he fell in love with the damsel and spoke unto her heart. 4 And Shechem spoke unto his father Hamor, saying, Get me this damsel to wife. 5 And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah, his daughter; now his sons were with his cattle in the field, and Jacob remained silent until they were come. 6 ¶ And Hamor, the father of Shechem, went out unto Jacob to speak with him. 7 And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it; and the men were grieved, and they were very wroth because he had wrought folly in Israel in lying with Jacob’s daughter, a thing which ought not to be done. 8 And Hamor spoke with them, saying, The soul of my son Shechem is joined to your daughter; I pray you give her to him as wife. 9 And make ye marriages with us and give your daughters unto us and take our daughters unto you. 10 And ye shall dwell with us, and the land shall be before you; dwell and trade ye therein and take you possessions therein. 11 And Shechem also said unto her father and unto her brethren, Let me find grace in your eyes, and what ye shall say unto me I will give. 12 Ask me for as much dowry and gift as ye desire, and I will give according as ye shall say unto me; but give me the damsel to wife. 13 And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father deceitfully and talked because he had defiled Dinah their sister: 14 And they said unto them, We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one that is uncircumcised, for among us that is a reproach. 15 But with this condition we will consent unto you: If ye will become as we are that every male of you be circumcised, 16 then we will give our daughters unto you, and we will take your daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will become one people. 17 But if ye will not hearken unto us, to be circumcised, then we will take our daughter, and we will be gone. 18 ¶ And their words pleased Hamor and Shechem, Hamor’s son. 19 And the young man deferred not to do the thing, because he had delight in Jacob’s daughter and he was the most honourable of all the house of his father. 20 Then Hamor and Shechem, his son, came unto the gate of their city and communed with the men of their city, saying, 21 These men are peaceable with us; therefore let them dwell in the land and trade therein; for the land, behold, it is large enough for them; let us take their daughters to us for wives, and let us give them our daughters. 22 Only with this condition will these men consent to dwell with us that we may be one people: if every male among us be circumcised as they are circumcised. 23 Shall not their livestock and their substance and every beast of theirs be ours? Only let us consent unto them, and they will dwell with us. 24 And unto Hamor and unto Shechem, his son, hearkened all that went out of the gate of his city; and every male was circumcised, all that went out of the gate of his city. 25 ¶ And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah’s brethren, took each man his sword and came upon the city boldly and slew all the males. 26 And they slew Hamor and Shechem, his son, with the edge of the sword and took Dinah out of Shechem’s house, and went out. 27 The sons of Jacob came upon the slain and spoiled the city because they had defiled their sister. 28 They took their sheep and their oxen and their asses and that which was in the city and that which was in the field 29 and all their wealth and all their little ones and their wives they took captive and spoiled even all that was in the house. 30 And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me to make me to stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites; and I being few in number, they shall gather themselves together against me and slay me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house. 31 And they said, Should he deal with our sister as with a harlot?

Exodus 22:16-17

16 ¶ If a man should entice a virgin that is not betrothed and lie with her, he shall surely endow her and take her to be his wife. 17 If her father utterly refuses to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.

Numbers 31:1-54

1 ¶ And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 2 Avenge the sons of Israel upon the Midianites; afterward thou shalt be gathered unto thy peoples. 3 And Moses spoke unto the people, saying, Arm some of yourselves unto the war and let them go against the Midianites and carry out the vengeance of the LORD in Midian. 4 A thousand out of every tribe throughout all the tribes of Israel shall ye send to the war. 5 So there were delivered out of the thousands of Israel a thousand of every tribe, twelve thousand armed for war. 6 And Moses sent them to the war; he sent a thousand of every tribe; and Phinehas, the son of Eleazar the priest, went to the war with the holy instruments, with the trumpets to blow in his hand. 7 ¶ And they fought against the Midianites as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males. 8 And they also slew the kings of Midian among the rest of those that were slain: namely, Evi and Rekem and Zur and Hur and Reba, five kings of Midian; they also slew Balaam, the son of Beor, with the sword. 9 And the sons of Israel took all the women of Midian captives and their little ones and took the spoil of all their beasts and all their flocks and all their goods. 10 And they burnt all their cities in which they dwelt and all their palaces with fire. 11 And they took all the spoil and all the prey, both of men and of beasts. 12 And they brought the captives and the prey and the spoil unto Moses and Eleazar, the priest, and unto the congregation of the sons of Israel, unto the camp in the plains of Moab, which was by Jordan of Jericho. 13 ¶ And Moses and Eleazar, the priest, and all the princes of the congregation went forth to meet them outside the camp. 14 And Moses was angry with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands and captains over hundreds who returned from the battle. 15 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? 16 Behold, these caused the sons of Israel through the counsel of Balaam to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor for which there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD. 17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones and kill every woman that has known a man by lying with him. 18 But all the female children that have not known a man by lying with him keep alive for yourselves. 19 And ye must abide outside the camp seven days; and whoever has killed any person and whoever has touched any dead body ye shall remove the sin from them on the third and on the seventh day, both of yourselves and of your captives. 20 Likewise remove all sin from all your clothing and all that is made of skins and all work of goats’ hair and every vessel made of wood. 21 And Eleazar, the priest, said unto the men of war which went to the battle, This is the ordinance of the law which the LORD commanded Moses; 22 certainly the gold and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin, and the lead, 23 every thing that may endure the fire, ye shall cause to pass through the fire, and it shall be clean; nevertheless, ye shall remove the sin with the water of separation; and all that does not endure the fire ye shall cause to go through the water. 24 Ye shall also wash your clothes on the seventh day, and ye shall be clean, and afterwards ye shall come into the camp. 25 ¶ And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 26 Take the sum of the prey that was taken, both of man and of beast, thou and Eleazar, the priest, and the heads of the fathers of the congregation, 27 and divide the prey into two parts between those that took the part in the war, who went out to battle, and all the congregation. 28 And offer a tribute unto the LORD from the men of war who went out to battle: one soul of five hundred, both of the persons and of the oxen and of the asses and of the sheep. 29 Take it from their half and give Eleazar, the priest, the offering of the LORD. 30 And of the half belonging to the sons of Israel, thou shalt take one portion of fifty, of the persons, of the oxen, of the asses, and of the flocks, of all manner of animals and give them unto the Levites, who keep the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD. 31 And Moses and Eleazar, the priest, did as the LORD commanded Moses. 32 And the prey, that is the rest of the prey which the men of war had caught, was six hundred and seventy-five thousand sheep 33 and seventy-two thousand oxen 34 and sixty-one thousand asses 35 and thirty-two thousand persons in all, of women that had not known a man by lying with him. 36 And the half which was the portion of those that went out to war was in number three hundred and thirty-seven thousand five hundred sheep. 37 And the tribute for the LORD, of the sheep was six hundred and seventy-five. 38 And the oxen were thirty-six thousand, of which the tribute for the LORD was seventy-two. 39 And the asses were thirty thousand five hundred, of which the tribute for the LORD was sixty-one. 40 And the persons were sixteen thousand, of which the tribute for the LORD was thirty-two persons. 41 And Moses gave the tribute, which was the LORD’s heave offering, unto Eleazar, the priest, as the LORD had commanded Moses. 42 And of the half pertaining to the sons of Israel, which Moses divided from the men that had gone to war, 43 (now the half that pertained unto the congregation was three hundred and thirty-seven thousand five hundred sheep 44 and thirty-six thousand oxen 45 and thirty thousand five hundred asses 46 and sixteen thousand persons) 47 of the half, therefore of the sons of Israel, Moses took one portion of fifty, both of man and of beast, and gave them unto the Levites, who kept the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD, as the LORD had commanded Moses. 48 ¶ And the officers who were over thousands of the host, the captains of thousands and captains of hundreds, came near unto Moses, 49 and they said unto Moses, Thy slaves have taken the sum of the men of war who are under our charge and not one man of us is missing. 50 We have therefore brought an offering for the LORD, each man of what he has found, of vessels of gold, chains, and bracelets, rings, earrings, and tablets, to reconcile our souls before the LORD. 51 And Moses and Eleazar, the priest, took the gold from them, all wrought vessels. 52 And all the gold of the offering that they offered up to the LORD, of the captains of thousands and of the captains of hundreds, was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels. 53 (For the men of war had taken spoil, every man for himself.) 54 And Moses and Eleazar, the priest, took the gold from the captains of thousands and of hundreds and brought it into the tabernacle of the testimony, for a memorial of the sons of Israel before the LORD.

Deuteronomy 22:25

25 But if the man found a betrothed damsel in the field and the man forced her and lay with her; then only the man that lay with her shall die;

2 Samuel 13:12-14

12 And she answered him, No, my brother, do not force me, for no such thing ought to be done in Israel. Do not commit this folly. 13 And I, where shall I go with my reproach? And as for thee, thou shalt be as one of the fools in Israel. Now, therefore, I pray thee, speak unto the king, for he will not withhold me from thee. 14 Howbeit, he would not hearken unto her voice, but, being stronger than she, forced her and lay with her.

Deuteronomy 22:25-27

25 But if the man found a betrothed damsel in the field and the man forced her and lay with her; then only the man that lay with her shall die; 26 but unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death; for as when a man rises against his neighbour and murders him, even so is this matter. 27 For he found her in the field and the betrothed damsel cried out, and there was no one to save her.

Deuteronomy 21:10-14

10 ¶ When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the LORD thy God has delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken them captive, 11 and seest among the captives a beautiful woman and hast a desire unto her that thou would have her to thy wife, 12 then thou shalt bring her home to thine house, and she shall shave her head and pare her nails, 13 and she shall put off the clothing of her captivity and shall remain in thine house and bewail her father and her mother a full month, and after that thou shalt go in unto her and be her husband, and she shall be thy wife. 14 And it shall be, if thou have no delight in her, then thou shalt let her go free, but thou shalt not sell her at all for money; thou shalt not make merchandise of her because thou hast humbled her.

Deuteronomy 22:28

28 When a man finds a damsel that is a virgin who is not betrothed and lays hold on her and lies with her, and they are found,

2 Samuel 13:1-39

1 ¶ And it came to pass after this that Absalom, the son of David, had a beautiful sister, whose name was Tamar, and Amnon, the son of David, loved her. 2 And Amnon was so distressed that he fell sick for his sister Tamar, for she was a virgin, and Amnon thought it difficult for him to do any thing to her. 3 But Amnon had a friend, whose name was Jonadab, the son of Shimeah, David’s brother, and Jonadab was a very astute man. 4 And he said unto him, Why art thou, being the king’s son, becoming thinner from day to day? Wilt thou not tell me? And Amnon said unto him, I love Tamar, my brother Absalom’s sister. 5 And Jonadab said unto him, Lay thee down on thy bed and pretend to be sick; and when thy father comes to see thee, say unto him, I pray thee, let my sister Tamar come and give me food and make the food in my sight that I may see it and eat it at her hand. 6 So Amnon lay down and pretended to be sick, and when the king came to see him, Amnon said unto the king, I pray thee, let Tamar, my sister, come, and make me a couple of cakes in my sight that I may eat at her hand. 7 Then David sent home to Tamar, saying, Go now to thy brother Amnon’s house and make him something to eat. 8 So Tamar went to her brother Amnon’s house, and he was lying down. And she took flour and kneaded it and made cakes in his sight and baked the cakes. 9 Then she took a pan and poured them out before him, but he refused to eat. And Amnon said, Send everyone out from me. And they all went out from him. 10 Then Amnon said unto Tamar, Bring the food into the chamber that I may eat from thy hand. And Tamar took the cakes which she had made and brought them into the chamber to Amnon, her brother. 11 And when she had brought them unto him to eat, he took hold of her and said unto her, Come lie with me, my sister. 12 And she answered him, No, my brother, do not force me, for no such thing ought to be done in Israel. Do not commit this folly. 13 And I, where shall I go with my reproach? And as for thee, thou shalt be as one of the fools in Israel. Now, therefore, I pray thee, speak unto the king, for he will not withhold me from thee. 14 Howbeit, he would not hearken unto her voice, but, being stronger than she, forced her and lay with her. 15 Then Amnon hated her exceedingly so that the hatred with which he hated her was greater than the love with which he had loved her. And Amnon said unto her, Arise, be gone. 16 And she said unto him, There is no cause; this evil in sending me away is greater than the other that thou didst unto me. But he would not hearken unto her. 17 Then he called his servant that ministered unto him and said, Put now this woman out from me and bolt the door after her. 18 And she had a garment of different colours upon her, for with such robes were the king’s daughters that were virgins apparelled. Then his servant brought her out and bolted the door after her. 19 And Tamar put ashes on her head and rent her garment of different colours that was on her and laid her hand on her head and went on crying. 20 And Absalom, her brother, said unto her, Has Amnon thy brother been with thee? But now remain silent, my sister; he is thy brother; do not regard this thing in thy heart. So Tamar remained desolate in her brother Absalom’s house. 21 ¶ But when King David heard of all these things, he was very angry. 22 And Absalom spoke neither good nor bad unto his brother Amnon, for Absalom hated Amnon because he had forced his sister Tamar. 23 And it came to pass after two full years that Absalom had sheepshearers in Baalhazor, which is beside Ephraim, and Absalom invited all the king’s sons. 24 And Absalom came to the king and said, Behold now, thy slave has sheepshearers; let the king, I beseech thee, and his slaves go with thy slave. 25 And the king said to Absalom, No, my son, let us not all go lest we be burdensome unto thee. And he pressed him; however, he would not go but blessed him. 26 Then said Absalom, If not, I pray thee, let my brother Amnon go with us. And the king said unto him, Why should he go with thee? 27 But because Absalom pressed him, he let Amnon and all the king’s sons go with him. 28 Now Absalom had commanded his servants, saying, Mark ye now when Amnon’s heart is merry with wine, and when I say unto you, Smite Amnon, then kill him. Fear not; have I not commanded you? Be courageous, and be valiant. 29 And the servants of Absalom did unto Amnon as Absalom had commanded. Then all the king’s sons arose, and they all got upon their mules and fled. 30 ¶ And it came to pass, while they were in the way, that the rumour came to David, saying, Absalom has slain all the king’s sons, and there is not one of them left. 31 Then the king arose and tore his garments and lay on the earth; and all his slaves stood by with their clothes rent. 32 And Jonadab, the son of Shimeah, David’s brother, answered and said, Do not let my lord suppose that they have slain all the young men, the king’s sons, for only Amnon is dead, for by the mouth of Absalom this has been determined from the day that he forced his sister Tamar. 33 Now, therefore, do not let my lord the king take the thing to his heart, to think that all the king’s sons are dead, for only Amnon is dead. 34 But Absalom fled. And the young man that kept the watch lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there came many people by the way of the side of the mountain behind him. 35 And Jonadab said unto the king, Behold, the king’s sons come; as thy slave said, so it is. 36 And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end of speaking, that, behold, the king’s sons came and lifted up their voice and wept. And the king also and all his slaves wept very sore. 37 But Absalom fled and went to Talmai, the son of Ammihud, king of Geshur. And David mourned for his son every day. 38 So after Absalom fled and went to Geshur, he was there three years. 39 And King David longed to see Absalom, for he was now comforted concerning Amnon, who was dead.

Deuteronomy 22:25-28

25 But if the man found a betrothed damsel in the field and the man forced her and lay with her; then only the man that lay with her shall die; 26 but unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death; for as when a man rises against his neighbour and murders him, even so is this matter. 27 For he found her in the field and the betrothed damsel cried out, and there was no one to save her. 28 When a man finds a damsel that is a virgin who is not betrothed and lays hold on her and lies with her, and they are found,

Deuteronomy 22:23-24

23 When a damsel that is a virgin is betrothed unto a husband and a man finds her in the city and lies with her, 24 then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones, and they shall die; the damsel because she did not cry out, being in the city, and the man because he has humbled his neighbour’s wife; so thou shalt put away evil from among you.

Deuteronomy 22:28-29

28 When a man finds a damsel that is a virgin who is not betrothed and lays hold on her and lies with her, and they are found, 29 then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel’s father fifty shekels of silver and she shall be his wife; because he has humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.
