Wesley's Notes for Genesis 34:6


34:7 It is called folly in Israel - According to the language of after - times, for Israel was not yet a people, but a family only.

34:8 Hamor communed - That is, talked. He came to treat with Jacob himself, but he turns them over to his sons. And here we have a particular account of the treaty, in which it is a shame to say the Canaanites were more honest than the Israelites.
