Genesis 49:3-5 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

Reuben, you are my firstborn,
my strength and the firstfruits of my virility,
excelling in prominence, excelling in power.
Turbulent as water, you will not excel,
because you got into your father’s bed
and you defiled it—he[a] got into my bed.

Simeon and Levi are brothers;
their knives are vicious weapons.
