Genesis 49:3-5 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

Reuben, you are my firstborn,
    my strength, the very first son I had,
        first in majesty and first in power.
You will no longer be first
    because you were out of control like a flood
        and you climbed into your father’s bed.
            Then you dishonored it.
        He climbed up on my couch.

Simeon and Levi are brothers.
    Their swords[a] are weapons of violence.
