Simeon, the Tribe Of:

was "divided and scattered" according to the prediction in Gen. 49:5-7. They gradually dwindled in number, and sank into a position of insignificance among the other tribes. They decreased in the wilderness by about two-thirds (Num 1:23; 26:14). Moses pronounces no blessing on this tribe. It is passed by in silence (Deu 33).

This tribe received as their portion a part of the territory already allotted to Judah (Jos 19:1-9). It lay in the south-west of the land, with Judah on the east and Dan on the north; but whether it was a compact territory or not cannot be determined. The subsequent notices of this tribe are but few (1Ch 4:24-43). Like Reuben on the east of Jordan, this tribe had little influence on the history of Israel.
