Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 34:20

_ _ Hamor and Shechem ... came unto the gate of their city — That was the place where every public communication was made; and in the ready obsequious submission of the people to this measure we see an evidence either of the extraordinary affection for the governing family, or of the abject despotism of the East, where the will of a chief is an absolute command.
