Genesis 49:3-5 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised (NRSVA)

‘Reuben, you are my firstborn,
    my might and the first fruits of my vigour,
    excelling in rank and excelling in power.
Unstable as water, you shall no longer excel
    because you went up on to your father’s bed;
    then you defiled it—you[a] went up on to my couch!

‘Simeon and Levi are brothers;
    weapons of violence are their swords.
