Genesis 49:3-5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“Reuben, you are my firstborn;
My might and the beginning of my strength,
[a]Preeminent in dignity and [b]preeminent in power.
[c]Uncontrolled as water, you shall not have preeminence,
Because you went up to your father’s bed;
Then you defiled it—he went up to my couch.

Simeon and Levi are brothers;
Their swords are implements of violence.
