Bible verses about "rape" | NSB

Genesis 34:1-31

1 One day Dinah, the daughter of Jacob and Leah, went to visit some of the Canaanite women. 2 Shechem, son of Hamor the Hivite, who was chief of that region, saw her. He grabbed her and raped (sexually defiled) her. 3 He found the young woman so attractive that he fell in love with her. So he tried to win her affection. 4 He told his father: »I want you to get Dinah for me as my wife.« 5 Jacob learned that his daughter had been disgraced. Since his sons were out in the fields with his livestock, he did nothing until they came back. 6 Shechem’s father Hamor went out to talk with Jacob. 7 About that time Jacob’s sons were coming in from the fields. When they heard about it, they were shocked and furious that Shechem had done such a thing. He had insulted the people of Israel by raping Jacob’s daughter. 8 Hamor said to him: »My son Shechem has fallen in love with your daughter. Please let him marry her. 9 »Let us make an agreement that there will be intermarriage between our people and yours. 10 »Then you may stay here in our country with us. You may live anywhere you wish. You may trade freely and own property.« 11 Shechem added: »Let me have your favor and I will give you whatever you want. 12 »Ask anything as the bride price, no matter how expensive. I will do anything. Just let me marry Dinah.« 13 Jacob’s sons wanted to get even with Shechem and his father because of what happened to their sister. 14 So they tricked them by saying: »You are not circumcised! It would be a disgrace for us to let you marry Dinah now. 15 »But we will let you marry her, if you and the other men in your tribe get circumcised. 16 »Then we will give our daughters to you. And we will take your daughters for us. We will live with you as one people. 17 »But if you will not undergo circumcision as we say, then we will take our daughter and go.« 18 Their words pleased Hamor and Hamor’s son Shechem. 19 The young man did not delay to do what was required. This was because he had delight in Jacob’s daughter. He was the most honored of all his family. 20 Hamor and his son Shechem went to their city gate to speak to the men of their city. They said: 21 »These people are friendly toward us. So let them live in our land and move about freely in the area. Look, there is plenty of room in this land for them. We can marry their daughters and let them marry ours. 22 »These people will consent to live with us and become one nation on one condition: Every male must be circumcised, as they are. 23 »Then all their livestock and everything else they own will be ours. So let us agree that they can live among us.« 24 All the citizens of the city agreed with what Hamor and Shechem proposed. Then all the males were circumcised. 25 Three days later the men who had been circumcised were still weak from pain. So Simeon and Levi, two of Dinah’s brothers, attacked with their swords and killed every man in town. 26 They also killed Hamor and Shechem. Then they took Dinah and left. 27 The sons of Jacob came upon the slain. They plundered the city, because their sister had been defiled. 28 They took their flocks and their herds, their asses and whatever was in the city and in the field. 29 They captured their wives and all their little ones. They took all the wealth that was in their houses. 30 Then Jacob said to Simeon and Levi: »You have brought trouble on me by making me loathsome to the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites and the Per’izzites. My numbers are few. If they gather themselves against me and attack my household I will be destroyed.« 31 They responded: »Should he treat our sister like a prostitute?«

Exodus 22:16-17

16 »When a man seduces a virgin who is not engaged to anyone and has sexual intercourse with her, he must pay the bride price and marry her. 17 »If her father refuses to give her to him, he must pay an amount of money equal to the bride price for virgins.

Numbers 31:1-54

1 Jehovah said to Moses: 2 »Get even with the Midianites for what they did to the Israelites. After that you will join your ancestors in death.« 3 Moses said to the people: »Your men must get ready to go to war against the Midianites. Jehovah will use them to get even with Midian. 4 »Send one thousand men from each of the tribes of Israel.« 5 Thus one thousand men from each tribe were supplied from the divisions of Israel, twelve thousand men ready for war. 6 Moses sent them off to war. There were one thousand men from each tribe along with Phinehas, son of the priest Eleazar. Phinehas took with him the holy articles and the trumpets for the fanfare. 7 They went to war against Midian, as Jehovah commanded Moses, and killed every man. 8 Included in those killed were the five kings of Midian-Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba. They also killed Balaam, son of Beor, in battle. 9 The Israelites took the Midianite women and children as prisoners of war. They also took all their animals, their livestock, and their valuables as loot. 10 They burned the cities where the Midianites lived and all their settlements. 11 They took everything as loot including all the people and animals, 12 and brought the prisoners of war, the loot, and everything to Moses, the priest Eleazar, and the congregation of Israel at the camp on the plains of Moab near the Jordan River across from Jericho. 13 Moses, the priest Eleazar, and all the leaders of the congregation went outside the camp to meet them. 14 Moses was angry with the officers of the army, the commanders of the companies and battalions, who were returning from battle. 15 Moses asked them: »Have you spared all the women? 16 »Look, these women caused the Israelites, through the counsel of Balaam, to trespass against Jehovah in the matter of Peor. Thus the congregation of Jehovah experienced the plague. 17 »So kill all the Midianite boys and every Midianite woman who has gone to bed with a man. 18 »But keep alive for yourselves every girl who has never gone to bed with a man. 19 »Everyone who killed a person or touched a dead body must stay outside the camp seven days. You and your prisoners of war must use the ritual water on the third and seventh days in order to take away your sin. 20 »You must do the same for all the clothes and everything made of leather, goats’ hair, or wood.« 21 Eleazar the priest said to the soldiers who had gone into battle: »This is what Jehovah’s Law told Moses to do: 22 »Only the gold and the silver, the copper, the iron, the tin and the lead, 23 everything that can stand the fire, you shall pass through the fire, and it will be clean. It must be purified with water for impurity. Anything that cannot stand the fire you shall pass through the water. 24 »You must wash your clothes on the seventh day and be clean. After that you may enter the camp.« 25 Jehovah spoke to Moses: 26 »You and Eleazar the priest and the heads of the families of the congregation take a count of the booty that was captured, both of man and of animal. 27 »Divide the booty between the warriors who went out to battle and the entire congregation. 28 »Levy a tax for Jehovah from the men of war who went out to battle, one in five hundred of the persons and of the cattle and of the donkeys and of the sheep. 29 »Take it from their half and give it to Eleazar the priest, as an offering to Jehovah. 30 »From the sons of Israel’s half, you shall take one drawn out of every fifty of the persons, of the cattle, of the donkeys and of the sheep, from all the animals, and give them to the Levites who keep charge of the tabernacle of Jehovah.« 31 Moses and Eleazar the priest did just as Jehovah commanded Moses. 32 The booty that remained from the spoil the men of war had plundered was six hundred and seventy-five thousand sheep, 33 and seventy-two thousand cattle, 34 and sixty-one thousand donkeys, 35 and of human beings, of the women who had not known man intimately, all the persons were thirty-two thousand. 36 The half, the portion of those who went out to war, was as follows: the number of sheep was three hundred thirty-seven thousand five hundred. 37 Jehovah’s levy of the sheep was six hundred and seventy-five. 38 There were thirty-six thousand cattle, from which Jehovah’s levy was seventy-two. 39 There were thirty thousand five hundred donkeys, from which Jehovah’s levy was sixty-one. 40 There were sixteen thousand human beings, from whom Jehovah’s levy was thirty-two persons. 41 Moses gave the levy that was Jehovah’s offering to Eleazar the priest, just as Jehovah had commanded Moses. 42 And from the Israelites half, which Moses separated from the men who had gone to war. 43 The congregation’s half was three hundred thirty-seven thousand five hundred sheep, 44 and thirty-six thousand cattle, 45 and thirty thousand five hundred donkeys, 46 and the human beings were sixteen thousand. 47 Moses took one drawn out of every fifty, both of man and of animals from the Israelite’s half. He gave them to the Levites, who kept charge of the tabernacle of Jehovah, just as Jehovah commanded Moses. 48 Then the officers who were over the thousands of the army, the captains of thousands and the captains of hundreds, approached Moses. 49 They said to Moses: »Your servants have taken a census of men of war who are in our charge, and no man of us is missing. 50 »So we brought as an offering to Jehovah what each man found, articles of gold, armlets and ankle bracelets, signet rings, earrings and necklaces, to make atonement for ourselves before Jehovah.« 51 Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold from them, all kinds of molded articles. 52 All the gold of the offering they gave to Jehovah, from the captains of thousands and the captains of hundreds, was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels. 53 Each of the men of war had taken booty. 54 So Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold from the captains of thousands and of hundreds, and brought it to the tent of meeting as a memorial for the Israelites before Jehovah.

She should shave her head and cut her nails. 13 »She should no longer wear the clothes she was wearing when you captured her. She may live in your house and mourn the loss of her father and mother for one month. After that you may marry her. 14 »Later if you are not happy with the woman you may divorce her. She may go free. But you have slept with her as your wife, so you cannot sell her as a slave or make her into your own slave.

2 Samuel 13:1-39

1 David had a beautiful daughter named Tamar. She was Absalom’s sister. She was also the half sister of Amnon. Amnon fell in love with her. 2 Tamar was a virgin. Amnon could not think of a way to be alone with her. He was so upset about it that he made himself sick. 3 Amnon had a friend named Jonadab. He was the son of David’s brother Shimeah. Jonadab usually knew how to get what he wanted. 4 Jonadab said to Amnon: »You are the king’s son. Even so day after day I see you looking sad. What is the problem?« Amnon answered: »I am in love with Tamar, the sister of my half brother Absalom.« 5 Jonadab said: »Pretend that you are sick and go to bed. When your father comes to see you, say to him: ‘Please ask my sister Tamar to come and feed me. I want her to fix the food here where I can see her. Then she can serve it to me.’« 6 So Amnon went to bed and pretended that he was sick. King David went to see him. Amnon said: »Please have Tamar come and make a few cakes here where I can see her. Then she can serve them to me.« 7 David sent word to Tamar at the palace: »Go to Amnon’s house and fix him some food.« 8 She went there and found him in bed. She prepared dough and made some cakes there where he could see her. Then she baked the cakes. 9 Tamar emptied them out of the pan for him to eat. But he refused to eat. He said: Send everyone away. So they all left. 10 He said to her: »Bring the cakes here to my bed and serve them to me.« She took the cakes and went over to him. 11 She offered them to him. He grabbed her and said: »Come to bed with me!« 12 She said: »No! Do not force me to do this disgraceful thing. It is evil. 13 »How could I ever hold up my head in public again? And you, you would be completely disgraced in Israel. Please speak to the king. I am sure he will give me to you.« 14 Amnon wouldn’t listen to her. He grabbed his sister and raped her. 15 After that Amnon developed an intense hatred for her. His hatred for her was greater than the lust he felt for her. »Get out of here,« he told her. 16 She said: »No, You do a greater wrong by sending me away than the other thing you did to me!« He would not listen to her. 17 He called his servant and said: »Throw this woman out and lock the door!« 18 The servant forced her to leave. He locked the door behind her. The king’s unmarried daughters used to wear long robes with sleeves. 19 Tamar tore the robe she was wearing. She put ashes on her head. Then she covered her face with her hands. She cried loudly as she walked away. 20 Tamar’s brother Absalom said to her: »How could Amnon have done such a terrible thing to you! But since he is your brother, do not tell anyone what happened. Just try not to think about it.« Tamar soon moved into Absalom’s house. She was always sad and lonely. 21 King David heard what happened and he was furious! 22 Absalom hated Amnon so much because he raped his sister Tamar. He would not speak to him anymore. 23 Two years later Absalom had sheep sheared at Baal Hazor, near the town of Ephraim. He invited all the king’s sons to be there. 24 He went to King David and said: »Your Majesty, I am having my sheep sheared. Will you and your officials take part in the festivities?« 25 The king answered: No, my son. It would be too much trouble for you if we all went. Absalom insisted, but the king would not give in. So he asked Absalom to leave. 26 Absalom said: »Will you at least let my brother Amnon come? Why should he?« The king asked. 27 Absalom insisted until David finally let Amnon and all his other sons go with Absalom. Absalom prepared a banquet fit for a king. 28 Absalom gave an order to his servants: »Watch now and when Amnon begins to feel good from drinking too much wine, I will tell you, Attack Amnon. Then kill him. Do not be afraid. I give this order. Be strong and courageous.« 29 Absalom’s servants did to Amnon as Absalom ordered. Then all the king’s sons got up, mounted their mules, and fled. 30 While they were on their way, David heard this rumor: »Absalom has killed all the king’s sons, and not a single one is left.« 31 The king stood up and tore his clothes. Then he lay down on the ground. All his servants stood beside him with their clothes torn to show their grief. 32 Jonadab son of David’s brother Shimea, said: »Do not think that all the young men are dead. They have not killed all the king’s sons. Only Amnon is dead. Absalom decided to do this the day his half brother raped his sister Tamar. 33 »You should not burden your heart with the idea that all the king’s sons are dead. Your Majesty, only Amnon is dead.« 34 Absalom has fled. The servant keeping the watch looked outside. He saw many people coming down the road beside the mountain west of him. 35 Jonadab said: »Your Majesty, look! Here come your sons now, just as I told you.« 36 As soon as he finished speaking, the king’s sons arrived. They cried loudly and the king and all his men also cried very bitterly. 37 David was sad for a long time because Amnon was dead. 38 Absalom ran away to Geshur. He stayed there for three years with King Talmai the son of Ammihud. 39 King David longed for Absalom once people had consoled him over Amnon’s death.
