CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
34:23 Shall not their cattle and their substance be ours? - They observed that Jacob's sons were industrious, thriving people, and promised themselves and their neighbours advantage by an alliance with them: it would improve ground and trade, and bring money into their country.
But they will consider staying here and becoming one people with us only if all of our men are circumcised, just as they are.
So all the men in the town council agreed with Hamor and Shechem, and every male in the town was circumcised.
