Requested move[edit]

As it stands, the name of this article is POV. There is another Simeon in the "Bible" - Simeon the Righteous. Maybe this should become Simeon (Tanakh) or Simeon (Hebrew Bible). StAnselm (talk) 06:32, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

And I've just noticed that his brother's article is at Joseph (Hebrew Bible), so Simeon (Hebrew Bible) makes the most sense. StAnselm (talk) 07:08, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
Comment. I thought about Simeon (patriarch), but then I wondered whether he is ever called a patriarch. He is obviously a minor character compared to Judah and Joseph - the raw number of mentions don't mean all that much. The POV expressed is that the Tanakh is being elevated above the New Testament. StAnselm (talk) 21:59, 18 March 2008 (UTC)
All twelve of the sons of Jacob are; see Testament of the Twelve Patriarchs. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 17:04, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
But are they called this in the Tanakh? Anyway, what is wrong with Simeon (Hebrew Bible)? StAnselm (talk) 01:59, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
What's the Hebrew for Patriarch? And what difference does it make? This is not the Hebrew Wikipedia, which calls this page the undabbed שמעון .
Suggestion: Simeon (Book of Genesis)? I have not read the Bible, so do not know if he is in more chapters than just Genesis. Tigeron (talk) 20:10, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
Move to Simeon (Hebrew Bible) per sensible idea by StAnselm. The other Simeon is only in one place, but is huge liturgically -- worldwide, millions of Anglicans recite his song every single evening around the world -- the Nunc dimittis. Bearian (talk) 23:50, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Merge of Simeon in rabbinic literature[edit]

  • Propose to merge the above here. I believe they are the same person (but may be mistaken). That article appears to have been lifted from the Jewish Encyclopedia. That's not a copyright issue but it means it is not in a good shape for this 21st century encyclopedia. Itsmejudith (talk) 16:25, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
