Genesis 49:3-5 International Standard Version (ISV)

On the Future of Reuben

“Reuben, you’re my firstborn,
    my strength,
        and the first fruit of my vitality.
You excel in rank
    and excel in power.
But you’re as undisciplined as a roaring river,
    so eventually you won’t succeed,
because you got in your father’s bed,[a]
    defiled it, and then approached my couch.”

On the Future of Simeon and Levi

“Simeon and Levi are brothers;
    their swords are violent weapons.
