Genesis 49:3-5 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)

Reuben, you are my firstborn,
    my might and the first fruits of my vigor,
    excelling in rank and excelling in power.
Unstable as water, you shall no longer excel
    because you went up onto your father’s bed;
    then you defiled it—you[a] went up onto my couch!

Simeon and Levi are brothers;
    weapons of violence are their swords.
