Genesis 34:1-31

1 And Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she had born unto Jacob, went out to look about among the daughters of the land. 2 And Shechem the son of Chamor the Hivite, the prince of the country, saw her; and he took her, and lay with her, and did her violence. 3 And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the maiden, and spoke kindly unto the maiden. 4 And Shechem spoke unto Chamor his father, saying, Get me this girl for wife. 5 And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter; but his sons were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace until they were come. 6 And Chamor the father of Shechem went out unto to Jacob to speak with him. 7 And the sons of Jacob came from the field when they heard it, and the men were grieved, and it excited their anger greatly; because he had wrought a disgraceful thing in Israel to lie with the daughter of Jacob, and this ought not to be done. 8 And Chamor spoke with them, saying, The soul of Shechem my son longeth for your daughter; give her, I pray you, unto him for wife. 9 And intermarry with us; your daughters ye shall give unto us, and our daughters ye may take unto yourselves. 10 And with us shall ye dwell; and the land shall be open before you; dwell and trade ye therein, and acquire possessions therein. 11 And Shechem said unto her father and unto her brother, Let me but find grace in your eyes, and whatever ye may say unto me, I will give. 12 Ask of me ever so much dowry and gift, and I will give, just as ye may say unto me; but give me the maiden for wife. 13 And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Chamor his father with cunning, and spoke; 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 that would be a reproach unto us. 15 But on this condition will we consent unto you; if ye will become as we are, that every male of you be circumcised: 16 Then will we give our daughters unto you, and we will take your daughters unto 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 will we take our daughter, and go our way. 18 And their words were pleasing in the eyes of Chamor, and in the eyes of Shechem, the son of Chamor. 19 And the young man deferred not to do the thing, because he had delight in Jacob’s daughter; and he was the most honored of all the house of his father. 20 And Chamor and Shechem his son came unto the gate of their city, and spoke with the men of their city, saying, 21 These men are peaceably inclined with us; therefore let them dwell in the land, and trade therein; and the land, behold, it is large enough on all sides before them; their daughters we will take unto us for wives, and our daughters we will give unto them. 22 Only with this condition will the men consent unto us to dwell with us, to become one people, if every male among us be circumcised, as they are circumcised. 23 Their cattle and their substance and every beast of theirs will they not be ours? only let us consent unto them, that they may dwell with us. 24 And unto Chamor and unto Shechem his son hearkened all that went out of the gate of his city; and all the males were 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 brothers, took each his sword, and came upon the city unresisted and slew all the males. 26 And they slew Chamor and Shechem his son with the edge of the sword; and they 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; and all that was in the house. 30 And Jacob said unto Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me, to cause me to be hated among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites: and as I am but few in number, they may gather themselves together against me, and slay me; and I would 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 (22:15) And if a man seduce a virgin that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife. 17 (22:16) If her father refuse 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 Execute the vengeance of the children of Israel on the Midianites, after which thou shalt be gathered unto thy people. 3 And Moses spoke unto the people, saying, Arm from yourselves some men for the army, and let them go against the Midianites, to execute the vengeance of the Lord on Midian. 4 A thousand each for every tribe, of all the tribes of Israel, shall ye send to the army. 5 And there were levied out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand of every tribe, twelve thousand armed for the army. 6 And Moses sent them, a thousand of every tribe, to the army; them and Phinehas the son of Elazar the priest, to the army, with the holy vessels, and the trumpets for blowing the alarm in his hand. 7 And they marched out against the Midianites, as the Lord had commanded Moses; and they slew every male. 8 And the kings of Midian they slew, besides the rest of their men that were slain; namely, Evi and Rekem, and Zur, and Chur, and Reba, the five kings of Midian; and Bil’am the son of Beor they slew with the sword. 9 And the children of Israel took captives the women of Midian, and their little ones; and all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods, they took as spoil. 10 And all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their castles they burnt with fire. 11 And they took all the spoil, and all the booty, both of men and of cattle. 12 And they brought unto Moses, and to Elazar the priest, and unto the congregation of the children of Israel, the captives, and the booty, and the spoil, unto the camp, to the plains of Moab, which are by the Jordan opposite Jericho. 13 And Moses, and Elazar the priest, and all the princes of the congregation, went forth to meet them, to without the camp. 14 And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, the captains over the thousands, and the captains over the hundreds, who had come from the war-campaign. 15 And Moses said unto them, Have ye allowed all the females to live? 16 Behold, these chiefly were the cause unto the children of Israel, through the counsel of Bil’am, to commit the gross trespass against the Lord in the matter of Peor; through which there was the plague among the congregation of the Lord. 17 And now kill ye every male among the little ones, and every woman that hath known man by lying with him shall ye kill. 18 But all among the women-children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. 19 But ye,—you must abide without the camp seven days: all ye who have killed any person, and all who have touched any one slain, shall purify yourselves on the third day, and on the seventh day; both you and your captives. 20 And every garment, and whatever is made of skins, and every work of goats’ hair, and every vessel made of wood, shall ye purify unto yourselves. 21 And Elazar the priest said unto the men of the army who had gone to the battle, This is the ordinance of the law which the Lord hath commanded Moses: 22 Nevertheless the gold, and the silver, the copper, the iron, the tin, and the lead, 23 Every thing that cometh into the fire shall ye make go through the fire, and it shall be clean; only it shall be purified with the waters of sprinkling: and whatsoever doth not come into the fire shall ye cause to go through the water. 24 And ye shall wash your clothes on the seventh day, and ye shall be clean, and after that may ye come into the camp. 25 And the Lord said unto Moses, as followeth, 26 Take the sum of the booty of the captives, both of man and of cattle, thou, with Elazar the priest, and the chiefs of the families of the congregation: 27 And thou shalt divide the booty, between those that carried on the war, who went out to the army, and between all the congregation. 28 And thou shalt levy a tribute unto the Lord from the men of war who went out to the army, one individual from every five hundred, of the persons, and of the beef-cattle, and of the asses, and of the sheep; 29 From their half shall ye take it; and thou shalt give it unto Elazar the priest, for a heave-offering of the Lord. 30 And from the half of the children of Israel, shalt thou take one individual, as it may come, from any fifty, of the persons, of beef-cattle, of the asses, and of the flocks, of all manner of cattle; and thou shalt give the same unto the Levites, who keep the charge of the tabernacle of the Lord. 31 And Moses with Elazar the priest did, as the Lord had commanded Moses. 32 And the booty, being the rest of the spoil which the men of the army had taken, was of sheep and goats, six hundred thousand and seventy thousand and five thousand, 33 And of beef-cattle, seventy and two thousand, 34 And of asses, sixty and one thousand, 35 And of human persons, of women that had not known men by lying with him, in all thirty and two thousand. 36 And the half, the portion of those who had gone out in the army, was, in the number of sheep and goats, three hundred thousand and seven and thirty thousand and five hundred. 37 And the tribute unto the Lord of the flocks was six hundred and seventy and five. 38 And the beef-cattle were thirty and six thousand; and the tribute thereof unto the Lord was seventy and two. 39 And the asses were thirty thousand and five hundred; and the tribute thereof unto the Lord was sixty and one. 40 And the human persons were sixteen thousand; and the tribute thereof unto the Lord was thirty and two persons. 41 And Moses gave the tribute, the Lord’s heave-offering, unto Elazar the priest, as the Lord had commanded Moses. 42 And from the half of the children of Israel, which Moses divided off from the men that had gone forth in the army,— 43 (Now the half of the congregation was, of sheep and goats three hundred thousand and thirty thousand, seven thousand and five hundred. 44 And beef-cattle, thirty and six thousand, 45 And asses thirty thousand five hundred, 46 And human persons sixteen thousand;) 47 And Moses took from this half of the children of Israel, as it came, one from every fifty, of man and of cattle, and gave the same unto the Levites, who kept the charge of the tabernacle of the Lord; as the Lord had commanded Moses. 48 And there came near unto Moses the officers who had been over the thousands of the army, the captains of the thousands, and the captains of the hundreds. 49 And they said unto Moses, Thy servants have taken the sum of the men of war who have been under our command, and there lacketh not one man of us. 50 We have therefore brought an oblation unto the Lord, each what he hath gotten of vessels of gold, chains, and bracelets, finger-rings, earrings, and tablets, to make an atonement for our souls before the Lord. 51 And Moses with Elazar the priest took the gold from them, all kinds of wrought articles. 52 And all the gold of the offering that they offered up to the Lord, was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels, from the captains of the thousands, and from the captains of the hundreds. 53 The men of the army had taken spoil, every man for himself. 54 And Moses and Elazar the priest took the gold from the captains of the thousands and of the hundreds, and they brought it into the tabernacle of the congregation, as a memorial for the children of Israel before the Lord.

Deuteronomy 22:25

25 But if in the field the man should find the betrothed damsel, and the man take hold of her by force, and lie with her: then shall the man that lay with her die alone;

2 Samuel 13:12-14

12 But she said to him, No, my brother, do not violate me; for such a deed ought not to be done in Israel; do not this scandalous act! 13 And I, whither should I carry my shame? and as for thee, thou wouldst be like one of the worthless in Israel; but now, O speak, I pray thee, unto the king, for he will not withhold me from thee. 14 Nevertheless, he would not hearken unto her voice; but he overpowered her, and violated her, and lay with her.

Deuteronomy 22:25-27

25 But if in the field the man should find the betrothed damsel, and the man take hold of her by force, and lie with her: then shall the man that lay with her die alone; 26 But unto the damsel shalt thou not do any thing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death; for as when a man riseth against his neighbor, and striketh him dead, even so is this matter; 27 For in the field did he find her; had the betrothed damsel even cried, there would have been none to aid her.

Deuteronomy 21:10-14

10 When thou goest forth to war against thy enemies, and the Lord thy God delivereth them into thy hands, and thou takest captives of them; 11 And thou seest among the captives a woman of handsome form, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldst take her to thee for wife: 12 Then shalt thou bring her home to thy house; and she shall shave her head, and let grow her nails; 13 And she shall put off the raiment of her captivity from her, and she shall remain in thy house, and weep for her father and her mother a full month; and after that thou mayest go in unto her, and be her husband, that she may become thy wife. 14 And it shall be, if thou have no delight in her, then shalt thou let her go whither she will; but thou shalt nowise sell her for money; thou shalt not make a servant of her, because thou hast humbled her.

Deuteronomy 22:28

28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, who is not betrothed, and lay fast hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found:

2 Samuel 13:1-39

1 And it came to pass after this, that Abshalom the son of David had a handsome sister, whose name was Thamar; and Amnon the son of David loved her. 2 And Amnon worried himself so that he fell sick on account of Thamar his sister; for she was a virgin; and it was impossible in the eyes of Amnon to do her the least harm. 3 But Amnon had a friend, whose name was Yonadab, the son of Shim’ah, David’s brother; and Yonadab was a very sensible man. 4 And he said to him, Why art thou so wasted, O prince, morning after morning? Wilt thou not tell me? Then said Amnon to him, Thamar the sister of Abshalom my brother do I love. 5 And Yonadab said to him, Lie down on thy couch, and feign thyself sick; and when thy father cometh to see thee, thou must say unto him, Let, I pray thee, Thamar my sister come, and give me some food, and prepare the refreshment before my eyes, in order that I may see it, and eat it out of her hand. 6 So Amnon lay down, and feigned himself sick; and when the king came to see him, Amnon said to the king, Let, I pray thee, Thamar my sister come, and mix up before my eyes a couple of cakes, that I may enjoy them out of her hand. 7 Then did David send home to Thamar, saying, Do go now to thy brother Amnon’s house, and prepare for him the refreshment. 8 So Thamar went to the house of Amnon her brother, and he was lying down; and she took the dough and kneaded, and mixed it up before his eyes, and baked the cakes; 9 And she took the pan, and poured them out before him; but he refused to eat; and Amnon said, Cause every man to go out from me; and they went out, every man, from him. 10 And Amnon said to Thamar, Bring the refreshment into the chamber, that I may enjoy it out of thy hand. So Thamar took the cakes which she had made, and brought them unto Amnon her brother into the chamber. 11 And when she had brought them near unto him to eat, he took hold of her, and said unto her, Come, lie with me, my sister. 12 But she said to him, No, my brother, do not violate me; for such a deed ought not to be done in Israel; do not this scandalous act! 13 And I, whither should I carry my shame? and as for thee, thou wouldst be like one of the worthless in Israel; but now, O speak, I pray thee, unto the king, for he will not withhold me from thee. 14 Nevertheless, he would not hearken unto her voice; but he overpowered her, and violated her, and lay with her. 15 Then did Amnon hate her with a very great hatred; 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, Do not add this yet greater wrong than the other which thou hast done with me, to send me now away! But he would not listen to her; 17 And he called his young man, his servant, and said, Do send this woman away from me, into the street, and lock the door behind her. 18 And she had on a garment of divers colors; for thus were usually appareled the king’s daughters when virgins, in robes; and his servant brought her out into the street, and locked the door behind her. 19 And Thamar put ashes on her head, and the garment of divers colors which was on her she rent: and she placed her hand on her head, and went away and cried as she went along. 20 Then said to her Abshalom her brother, Hath Amnon thy brother been with thee? but now, my sister, keep silence, he is thy brother, take this thing not to thy heart. So Thamar remained, and was secluded in the house of Abshalom her brother. 21 And when king David heard all these things, it displeased him greatly. 22 And Abshalom spoke not with Amnon either bad or good; for Abshalom hated Amnon, because he had violated Thamar his sister. 23 And it came to pass after two full years, that Abshalom had sheep-shearers at Ba’al-chazor, which is near Ephraim; and Abshalom invited all the king’s sons. 24 And Abshalom came to the king, and said, Behold, now, thy servant hath sheep-shearers; let the king, I pray thee, and his servants go with thy servant. 25 And the king said to Abshalom, No, my son, do not let us all go now, that we may not be a burden upon thee. And he urged him much, but he would not go, and he blessed him. 26 And Abshalom said, If not, let, I pray thee, Amnon my brother go with us. And the king said to him, Why should he go with thee? 27 But Abshalom urged him greatly, and he sent with him Amnon and all the sons of the king. 28 Now Abshalom commanded his servants, saying, Mark ye, I pray you, when Annon’s heart is merry with wine, and I say unto you, Smite Amnon: then kill him, fear not; behold, it is I who command it you; be firm and show yourselves men of valor. 29 And the servants of Abshalom did unto Amnon as Abshalom had commanded. Then arose all the king’s sons, and they rode off, every man on his mule, and fled. 30 And it happened, while they were on the way, that the report came to David, saying, Abshalom hath smitten all the king’s sons, and there is not one of them left. 31 Then arose the king and rent his garments, and laid himself on the earth: and all his servants were standing by with their garments rent. 32 But Yonadab the son of Shim’ah, David’s brother, commenced and said, Let not my Lord suppose that they have slain all the young men, the king’s sons; since Amnon alone is dead; for by the command of Abshalom was this ordained from the day that he violated Thamar his sister. 33 And now let not my Lord the king take the thing to his heart, thinking, that all the king’s sons are dead; for Amnon alone is dead. 34 And Abshalom flew away. And the young man that was watching lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold, many people were coming by the way behind him, by the side of the mount. 35 And Yonadab said to the king, The king’s sons are come: according to the word of thy servant, so hath it come to pass. 36 And it happened, as he had just finished speaking, that, behold, the king’s sons came, and they lifted up their voice and wept; and also the king and all his servants wept very much. 37 But Abshalom had fled; and he went to Talmai, the son of ‘Ammihud, the king of Geshur: and David mourned for his son all the time. 38 So did Abshalom fly, and go to Geshur, and he remained there three years. 39 And the soul of king David longed to go forth unto Abshalom; for he was comforted concerning Amnon, that he was dead.

Deuteronomy 22:25-28

25 But if in the field the man should find the betrothed damsel, and the man take hold of her by force, and lie with her: then shall the man that lay with her die alone; 26 But unto the damsel shalt thou not do any thing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death; for as when a man riseth against his neighbor, and striketh him dead, even so is this matter; 27 For in the field did he find her; had the betrothed damsel even cried, there would have been none to aid her. 28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, who is not betrothed, and lay fast hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found:

Deuteronomy 22:23-24

23 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto a man, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her: 24 Then shall ye lead them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not for aid in the city; and the man, because he hath done violence to his neighbor’s wife; and thou shalt put away the evil from the midst of thee.

Deuteronomy 22:28-29

28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, who is not betrothed, and lay fast hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found: 29 Then shall the man who lieth with her give unto the father of the damsel fifty shekels of silver; and she shall become his wife, because he hath done violence to her, he shall not be at liberty to put her away all his days.
