Genesis 49:3-5 New Life Version (NLV)
3 “Reuben, you are my first-born, my power and the beginning of my strength, first in pride and first in power. 4 But because you are as wild as water, the first place will not be yours. It is because you went to your father’s bed and made it unclean.
5 “Simeon and Levi are brothers. They hurt others with their swords.
Genesis 49:3-5 New International Version (NIV)
3 “Reuben, you are my firstborn,
my might, the first sign of my strength,
excelling in honor, excelling in power.
4 Turbulent as the waters, you will no longer excel,
for you went up onto your father’s bed,
onto my couch and defiled it.
5 “Simeon and Levi are brothers—
their swords are weapons of violence.
