Genesis 49:3-5 The Voice (VOICE)

    Reuben, you are my firstborn son,
        my power and the vigor of my youth,
        first in rank and first in power.
    But you are out of control, like floodwaters; you have forfeited your place
        because you have lain with your father’s wife
        and defiled his bed—you climbed onto my couch!

    Simeon and Levi are indeed brothers, kindred spirits
        who use their swords[a] for cruelty and violence.
