Today's Favorite Verse: Genesis 34:1

Today's Favorite Verse: Genesis 34:1
"And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land."

That is the only nice verse in this whole chapter. Innocent Dinah going out to meet the people in her new community. Then she taken my Shechem and raped and basically held hostage. He says he loves her and asks his father to speak to Jacob, making any deal so Dinah can be his wife. The sons of Jacob will only give their consent if all the men are circumcised. This was done in deceit because 3 days after they are circumcised and sore, Jacob's sons Simeon and Levi go into the city and kill all the men. It's just horrible. I simply cannot judge the matter.

All I know is that bad things can happen to good people. Good people can have their bad moments too. In all things the Lord will heal if I but turn to him.  

Day 609
