Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 34:7

_ _ the men were grieved, and ... very wroth — Good men in such a case could not but grieve; but it would have been well if their anger had been less, or that they had known the precept “let not the sun go down upon your wrath” [Ephesians 4:26]. No injury can justify revenge (Deuteronomy 32:35; Romans 12:9); but Jacob’s sons planned a scheme of revenge in the most deceitful manner.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 34:6-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 34:7

It is called folly in Israel — According to the language of after — times, for Israel was not yet a people, but a family only.
