||On the third day, when [the people] were in agony, two of Jacob's sons, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brothers, took up their swords. They came to the city without arousing suspicion and killed every male.
Vayehi vayom hashlishi biheyotam ko'avim vayikchu shney-veney Ya'akov Shim'on veLevi achey Dinah ish charbo vayavo'u al-ha'ir betach vayahargu kol-zachar.
||They also killed Chamor and his son Shechem by the sword, and took Dinah from Shechem's house. Then they left.
Ve'et Chamor ve'et Shchem beno hargu lefi-charev vayikchu et-Dinah mibeyt Shchem vayetse'u.
||Jacob's sons came upon the dead, and plundered the city that had defiled their sister.
Beney Ya'akov ba'u al-hachalalim vayavozu ha'ir asher time'u achotam.
|killed every male|
Since the citizens did not penalize Shechem for his crime, they were considered accomplices (Maimonides, Yad, Melakhim 9:14). Furthermore, the people of Shechem were planning to attack Jacob and plunder him (Sefer HaYashar; see Genesis 34:23). Besides this, the city deserved divine punishment, since they were notorious for seducing and raping the daughters of strangers (Tzava'ath Levi 6:8-11; cf. Ramban).
