Later the men of Judah went down to attack the Canaanites living in the hill country, the Negev, and the lowlands. 1
The men of Judah said to their relatives, the men of Simeon, 1 “Invade our allotted land with us and help us attack the Canaanites. 2 Then we 3 will go with you into your allotted land.” So the men of Simeon went with them.
Then Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, “You have brought ruin 1 on me by making me a foul odor 2 among the inhabitants of the land – among the Canaanites and the Perizzites. I 3 am few in number; they will join forces against me and attack me, and both I and my family will be destroyed!”
