Genesis 49:5-7 Expanded Bible (EXB)

“Simeon and Levi are brothers
    who used their ·swords [or circumcision knives; or counsels; or treaties; ch. 34] to do violence.
I will not join their secret talks,
    and I will not ·meet with them to plan evil [L join them in their assembly].
They killed men because they were angry,
    and they ·crippled [hamstrung] oxen ·just for fun [or at will; 34:25–31].
May their anger be cursed, because it is too ·violent [severe; strong; intense].
    May their violence be cursed, because it is too ·cruel [harsh].
I will divide them up among the tribes of Jacob
    and scatter them through all the tribes of Israel [C neither Simeon nor Levi received a tribal allotment in the Promised Land; Josh. 13–22].
