Answer: Just before Jacob died, he called his twelve sons and said, “Gather around so I can tell you what will happen to you in days to come” (Genesis ). The chapter then shares Jacob’s prophecies regarding many of his sons. Jacob now sets out to bless his own sons. He wishes to tell them what will befall them in the End of Days. To Reuben, Simeon and Levi, Jacob offers only chastisement for their earlier actions. Reuben, for interfering with Jacob’s marital bed (see Genesis ), and Simeon and Levi for their rash attack on the people of Shechem (see Genesis ). In fact, Jacob goes so far .   Sons Who Received Blessings. Judah was the first son to receive blessings from his father. Jacob said that his brothers shall praise him while enemies and his brothers will bow down before him (Genesis ). He was also likened to a lion (v 9) and his role as the family’s leader was established by Jacob (v 10).
