Tribe of Simeon
A MORAL COMPASS
As the 2nd son of Jacob, Simeon was intense and zealous, sometimes to a fault. He famously took vengeance on the King of Shechem and his city for violating his sister Dina, which upset his father Jacob, a reputable man of peace. However, the Emerald was selected as the Tribe of Simeon’s representative jewel on the Priestly Breastplate, as it stood for protection against immorality. Considering his volatile past, the honor is still bestowed upon Simeon to be a beacon of ethics and restraint.
