7 And the sonnes of Iacob came out of the field when they heard it, and the men were grieued: and they were very wroth, because hee had wrought folly in Israel, in lying with Iacobs daughter; which thing ought not to be done.
21 These men are peaceable with vs, therefore let them dwel in the land, and trade therein: for the land, behold, it is large enough for them: let vs take their daughters to vs for wiues, and let vs giue them our daughters.
25 ¶ And it came to passe on the thirde day when they were sore, that two of the sonnes of Iacob, Simeon and Leui, Dinahs brethren, tooke each man his sword and came vpon the citie boldly, and slew all the males.
30 And Iacob said to Simeon and Leui, Ye haue troubled me to make me to stinke among the inhabitants of the land, amongst the Canaanites, and the Perizzites: and I being few in number, they shall gather themselues together against me, and slay me, and I shal be destroyed, I and my house.

Genesis 34:25-27 does not say that God told them to do that, but by their freewill, it was an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.

Sinful acts will ever remain sinful. No compromise aspects could cover. And again it was the retributional dispensation, i.e. where eye for an eye was the order of the day.
Timothy Wayne George's Genesis Chapter 34 comment about verse 2 on 1/04/2013, 4:49pm...
The text reads: when Shechem, the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, Dinah, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her. The question in this text would be: when is rape really a rape? The torah points out that the woman has a duty to scream, when she is being raped. The text does not say that Dinah screamed, and this would yield another question was this act consented to? Jacob has another problem on his hand, with Shechem wanting to inter-marry with his daughter Dinah. The New Testament states that believers are not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers. So there was a love relationship there between Dinah, and Shechem. The resulting acts of Dinah's brothers were also wrong, and caused folly in Israel. Jacob did not seem to be the best example of a father, because he favored some of his kids over the others. This is why Joseph's brothers hated him, because he was favored, being the son of Rachel, who was the wife that Jacob loved more than Leah. Had the brothers of Dinah been more protective of her, they would have accompanied her, and this event with Shechem, would never have happened. These things happened to them to be examples unto to us today in the Church Age. God is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance. We are told to be kind one to another, tenderhearted, and forgiving as God for Christ sake has forgiven us. Paul later states let everyman have his own wife, and every woman have her own husband. This is a topic that deserves much discussion in the Church today, so that what happened to Dinah, does not continue to be perpetuated by those with a zeal without knowledge.

It sure would have been like that, if the girl would be allowed to live a man that did not marry her.
God bless you.

As stated, in verse 31. And they said, Should he deal with our sister as with an harlot, was she treated as such?
HLE's Genesis Chapter 34 comment on 7/15/2012, 4:14pm...
What Jacob's sons did was repugnant and disgraceful. They proceeded to make a covenant but did not fulfil their part of the bargain. The Word said that they dealt deceptively to the Hivites. However, The LORD always have the last word and will see to it that Israel fulfil it's side of the covenant, because any covenant made in the Name of The LORD must be upheld because that would blaspheme His Holy Name. (In those days each party invoke the name of his god.) So we read in Joshua chapter 9 that the Gibeonite, who were Hivites pulled a deception on Israel in return. This time Israel was forced to uphold its part of the covenant or face dire consequences from The LORD. Even though it took over four hundred years, The LORD see to it that justice was served and His Holy Name is vindicated.
Timothy Wayne George's Genesis Chapter 34 comment on 5/08/2012, 8:21am...
Did God approve of what Jacob's sons did after the rape of their sister Dinah? We must remember that God is a God of love, and love does no harm to his neighbor. We must love the Lord with all our heart,mind, and soul.
We must love our neighbor as our selves. Love was not practiced in this passage nor forgiveness, and the consequence was more sin was committed. If we will stop the violence, then we must do as God has commanded. He who loves much has been forgiven of much, and he who loves little has been forgiven of little. Love is the fulfillment of the law.

People you have to read Don's Genesis 33:15 comment.
When the "Spirit" impresses upon you a particular verse for understanding you must go back and glean out the situations or statements that peaked your interest.
Above all, get the tools necessary to translate our English back to the original Languages. Hebrew (Old Testament) Greek (New Testament)
The Strong's Concordance dictionary and The King James Companion Bible. (both will be a great blessing!
Example the word "Hate" #3404 in the Strong's Concordance also can mean - "To Love Less than".
A huge huge difference in understanding
the meaning of Luke 14:26 !!!
