From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Reuben
    behold a son!, the eldest son of Jacob and Leah (Gen. 29:32).
    His sinful conduct, referred to in Gen. 35:22, brought down upon
    him his dying father's malediction (48:4). He showed kindness to
    Joseph, and was the means of saving his life when his other
    brothers would have put him to death (37:21,22). It was he also
    who pledged his life and the life of his sons when Jacob was
    unwilling to let Benjamin go down into Egypt. After Jacob and
    his family went down into Egypt (46:8) no further mention is
    made of Reuben beyond what is recorded in ch. 49:3,4.

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)
