Genesis 49:3-5 American Standard Version (ASV)

    Reuben, thou art my first-born, my might, and the [a]beginning of my strength;
The pre-eminence of dignity, and the pre-eminence of power.
Boiling over as water, [b]thou shalt not have the pre-eminence;
Because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed;
Then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.
    Simeon and Levi are brethren;
Weapons of violence are their [c]swords.
