Unchecked Copy BoxGen 34:15 - We will give you our consent on this one condition: You must become like us by circumcising all your males.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 34:16 - Then we will give you our daughters to marry, and we will take your daughters as wives for ourselves, and we will live among you and become one people.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 34:21 - "These men are at peace with us. So let them live in the land and travel freely in it, for the land is wide enough for them. We will take their daughters for wives, and we will give them our daughters to marry.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 34:22 - Only on this one condition will these men consent to live with us and become one people: They demand that every male among us be circumcised just as they are circumcised.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 34:31 - But Simeon and Levi replied, "Should he treat our sister like a common prostitute?"
