Genesis 34:7

And the builders of Heel have come in from the Field when they heard, and the Mortal-men are paining themselves,1063 and he burned1064 to them exceedingly, for he has made a withered-one1065 in El-Strives, to lie down אֶת-the built-one of Heel, and an upright one is not being made.1066



Hebrew וְכֵ֖ן לֹ֥א יֵעָשֶֽׂה, and he is not being made. This is the literal. Interpreted as “such is not done.” Translators force the adverb ken כֵ֖ן (#3651 thus, so) to mean the same as this or that.
