In Deuteronomy 33, why didn’t Moses bless the tribe of Simeon?

Perceptive question! The “why” isn’t completely clear, but in the next book, Joshua, we see the tribe of Simeon almost disappearing as it is absorbed into Judah (see Joshua 19:1-9). Each tribe’s blessing foreshadows something about its future, and Simeon’s absence is probably no different.
