We just learned about one of the children of the twelve tribes of Israel, Reuben.

Another of the twelve was Simeon.

When Jacob was married to both Leah and Rachel, the Bible says that he loved Rachel more.
Leah prayed to God that she would have a baby, and then her son Simeon was born.
She was happy and said "Because the Lord heard that I am not loved, he gave me this one too."

People believe that Simeon was one of the more fearless and envious of the sons, and he was one of the 12 brothers that threw the younger boy Joseph into the pit before Joseph was sent to Egypt.
