Notes for Bunah:

Her name in Hebrew is: נהוב Bûwnâh (boo-naw’) Strongs #: 946; discretion.

Not much is known about Bunah, although she may have been raised in Shechem her entire life.

The age of Bunah is unknown when Simeon took her for a wife, but Bunah was a damsel that took care of Simeon’s sister Dinah when she was kidnapped by Shechem.  (15)

She was a beautiful girl, and so Simeon took her to be his wife, and since Bunah is only mentioned four times in Jasher, we can only guess that she went to Egypt with her husband later on.  (16)

Notes for Jamin:

His name in Hebrew is: ימין Yâmîyn (yaw-meen’) Strongs #: 3226.

He is only mentioned in Gen. 46:10, Ex. 6:15 and I Chron. 4:24.  He is also known as “Yamin” in Jasher 45:2.  After the death of his father and uncles, it is possible that he became a slave to the Egyptians.

Notes for Jemuel:

His name in Hebrew is: ימואל Yemûw’êl (yem-oo-ale’) Strongs #: 3223; day of Elohim.

He is only mentioned in Gen. 46:10 and Ex. 6:15.  He is also known as “Memuel” in Jasher 45:2, and as “Nemuel” in I Chron. 4:24.  After the death of his father and uncles, it is possible that he became a slave to the Egyptians.

Notes for Simeon:

His name in Hebrew is: שמעון Shim’ôwn (shim-­ōne’) Strongs #: 8095; hearing.  His name in Greek is: Συμεών Sumĕōn (soom-eh-one’) Strongs #: 4826.

Jacob, Simeon’s father was 85 when Simeon was born.

Jacob had already been living in Haran for eight years when Simeon was born.

At the age of 12, Simeon left with his family to return to where Jacob came from and met with a few hardships along the way.  (1)

The place of abode upon arriving in Canaan from Haran was outside the town of Shechem where they stayed 18 months.  (2)

Upon the kidnapping of Simeon’s sister, Dinah, Simeon and his younger brother Levi laid Shechem to waste on account of their sister.

It looked like Simeon would be going to his first battle at the age of 13, but it turned out that the Canaanites decided that it wouldn’t be a very good idea.  If two can take a city, then an army of 112 would be devastating. (3)

At 14, Simeon and his family moved to Bethel for a six month stay.

At 15, his Aunt Rachel died at childbirth while bringing Benjamin into the world.

At 20, Simeon and his family came again to Shechem but their arrival made headline news amongst the Canaanites since they didn’t want to lose their city again.  This time war was inevitable!

The armies of the seven Canaanite kings came against them, but to make a long story short, Simeon and his brothers destroyed the kings as well as seven cites, although it took several days to do it.  (4)

Simeon’s mother, Leah died when Simeon was 21, and it was after that time that his half-brother Joseph started making a nuisance of himself.  Although Joseph ranked himself better than his brothers, Father Jacob still loved the brat so much that Jacob made a colorful coat for him with long sleeves.  (5)

What was the most annoying were Joseph’s dreams, and since Simeon had the gift of interpreting dreams it made him dislike his brother all the more!  (6)

The only relief from Joseph was to look after the cattle with his brothers in Shechem (they had been dwelling in Hebron with Grandfather Isaac), but Joseph still found his brothers even when Simeon moved with his brothers 15 miles north to Dothan.

Even before Joseph arrived at the camp, Simeon immediately planned to kill Joseph, but Reuben wanted nothing to do with the plan, so Joseph was placed in a pit so Reuben could secretly let Joseph return home.

While Reuben was away from the camp, Simeon and his brothers sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites for 20 pieces of silver, but Simeon later regretted it.

With Joseph being sold to the Ishmaelites and taken to Egypt, Simeon and his brothers took Joseph’s coat, tore it and dipped it in the blood of a goat and delivered it to Jacob.  (7)

Twenty years later at the age of 43, Simeon was sent to Egypt with his brothers (except Benjamin) to buy corn since there was a severe famine in Canaan.

Upon arriving in Egypt, the brothers met with Zaphnathpaaneah, the stern governor of Egypt who accused the brothers as being spies.  Then Simeon was bound in prison, and the brothers were instructed to bring their youngest brother Benjamin with them on their next trip to prove that they weren’t spies.  (8)

Simeon’s brothers had to return home, leaving Simeon behind in the prison, but as soon as his brothers were gone out, he was released and was treated with kindness.  (9)

Upon Simeon’s brothers return back to Egypt fourteen months later, troubles began after Simeon and his brothers had dined with the governor, and that was when Benjamin was accused of stealing the Governor’s cup.  However, the excitement didn’t really begin until the governor said that he would use Benjamin as a slave in his house.  (10)

This act grieved Simeon and his brethren, but it wasn’t until the governor saw that the brothers were willing to fight for their younger brother that he reviewed himself to them that Zaphnathpaaneah was actually Joseph.

This act both gladdened and frightened Simeon.

Simeon was able to return home with all his brethren telling Jacob the glad tidings in which they made the trip back to Egypt with the whole family, and was able to witness the joyous reunion of father and son in Egypt.  (11)

Seventeen years later, when Simeon was 62, his father died and requested to be buried in the Cave of Machpelah, but the funeral procession was halted for short time while by Simeon’s Uncle Esau.  (12)

Because of the battle at the Cave of Machpelach, another one ensued with the Edomites in which some Edomites were taken captive and taken to Egypt.  Having captive Edomites in Egypt for slaves to the Israelites was considered a shame to the Edomites, so war was waged against the Children of Jacob as well as the Egyptians, but the Edomites ended up losing the battle the third time.  (13)

After Simeon had lived in Egypt for 75 years, he died at the age of 120.  (14)
