Genesis 34 - Outline

Dinah was in the wrong place at the wrong time
Shechem might have thought he just did "one little sin," but it ended up creating a huge fiasco
Shechem got things in the wrong order: first he took Dinah, and then he asked about marrying her
Shechem and his father Hamor came to Jacob and his sons, and asked them for Dinah
Jacob's sons were angry, so they deceitfully promised to give Dinah if all of the men in the city would get circumcised
Shechem and Hamor convinced all of the men in the city to get circumcised, playing on their greed, and promising them all of Jacob's stuff (v23)
when the men were sore from getting circumcised, Simeon and Levi massacred the city and took everything
Jacob rebuked his sons for ruining the family reputation
