Dinah, daughter of Jacob and Leah, was kidnapped and raped by Shechem, a Canaanite prince who then fell in love with her. He asked her father and brothers for her hand in marriage, and they said that they would allow it if every man in the city were circumcised, per Jewish Law. The prince agreed, and all of the men were circumcised. Three days later, while they were still sore, Dinah's brothers, Simeon and Levi, raided the city and killed all the males, including the prince and his father.
