Genesis 49:4

Ἐξύβρισας ὡς ὕδωρ, μὴ ἐκζέσῃς· ἀνέβης γὰρ ἐπὶ τὴν κοίτην τοῦ πατρός σου· τότε ἐμίανας τὴν στρωμνήν, οὗ ἀνέβης.

You are insolent like water, do not boil over; for you went up on the marriage-bed of your father; then you defiled the bed, which you went up.

פחז כמים אל־תותר כי עלית משׁכבי אביך אז חללת יצועי עלה׃


*   insolent OR overflow violently (metaphorically of a reckless misdeed)
*   boil over OR  be intensely and mentally agitated with illicit passions
*   bed OR couch OR bed-sheet OR bed-cover OR spread bed
