“Reuben, you are ymy firstborn,my might, and the zfirstfruits of my strength,preeminent in dignity and preeminent in power.4  Unstable as water, you shall not have preeminence,because you awent up to your father’s bed; then you defiled it—he went up to my couch!
Reuben:
You are my firstborn,
My might, and the firstfruits of my strength,
Preeminent in dignity
Preeminent in power
Unstable as water
You shall not have preeminence
Because you went up to your father’s bed
You defiled it
He went up to my couch!
English Standard Version (Chapter 49)
“Simeon and Levi are brothers;weapons cof violence are their swords.6  Let my soul come not into their council;dO my glory, ebe not joined to their company.For in their anger they killed men,and in their willfulness they hamstrung oxen.

Cursed be their anger, for it is fierce,

and their wrath, for it is cruel!

I will divide them in Jacob

and scatter them in Israel.

Simeon and Levi:
Are brothers
Weapons of violence are their swords.
Let my soul come not into their council
O my glory, be not joined to their company
For in their anger they killed men
In their willfulness they hamstrung oxen
Cursed be their anger, for it is fierce,
and their wrath, for it is cruel!
I will divide them in Jacob and scatter them in Israel.

Judah, hyour brothers shall praise you;

iyour hand shall be on the neck of your enemies;

jyour father’s sons shall bow down before you.

9  Judah is ka lion’s cub;

from the prey, my son, you have gone up.

lHe stooped down; he crouched

The mscepter shall not depart from Judah,

nor the ruler’s staff nfrom between his feet,

until tribute comes to him;1

and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.

11  Binding his foal to the vine

and his donkey’s colt to the choice vine,

he has washed his garments in wine

and his vesture in the blood of grapes.

12  His oeyes are darker than wine

Judah:
Your brothers shall praise you
Your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies
Your father’s sons shall bow down before you.
Judah is a lion’s cub;
The prey, my son, you have gone up.
He stooped down; he crouched
The scepter shall not depart from Judah,
Nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet,
Until tribute comes to him
To him shall be the obedience of the peoples.
Binding his foal to the vine
His donkey’s colt to the choice vine,
He has washed his garments in wine
His vesture in the blood of grapes.
His eyes are darker than wine
