Genesis 49:3-5 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

Reuben, you are my firstborn,
    my strength, and the firstfruit of my vigor,
    excelling in rank and excelling in power.
Unstable[a] as water, you shall not excel any longer,
    for you went up upon the bed of your father,
    then defiled it. You went up upon my couch!
Simeon and Levi are brothers;
    weapons of violence are their swords.
    Let me[b] not come into their council.
