Hebrew translation:

112. פָּתַח רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן וְאָמַר, (בראשית מב) וַיִּקַּח מֵאִתָּם אֶת שִׁמְעוֹן וַיֶּאֱסֹר אֹתוֹ לְעֵינֵיהֶם. וְכִי מָה רָאָה יוֹסֵף לָקַחַת אֶת שִׁמְעוֹן עִמּוֹ יוֹתֵר מֵאֶחָיו? אֶלָּא אָמַר יוֹסֵף בְּכָל מָקוֹם שִׁמְעוֹן (וְלֵוִי) הוּא (הֵם) פְּתִיחַת הַדִּין, וְאוֹתָהּ הַשָּׁעָה שֶׁהָלַכְתִּי מֵאָבִי אֶל אָחִי, שִׁמְעוֹן פָּתַח בָּרִאשׁוֹנָה בְּדִין, זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (שם לז) וַיֹּאמְרוּ אִישׁ אֶל אָחִיו הִנֵּה בַּעַל הַחֲלֹמוֹת הַלָּזֶה בָּא וְעַתָּה לְכוּ וְגוֹ’. אַחַר כָּךְ בִּשְׁכֶם, (שם לד) וַיִּקְחוּ שְׁנֵי בְּנֵי יַעֲקֹב שִׁמְעוֹן וְלֵוִי, כֻּלָּם בְּדִין הָיוּ. טוֹב לָקַחַת אֶת זֶה, וְלֹא יָעִיר קְטָטָה עִם כָּל הַשְּׁבָטִים.
113. וְשָׁנִינוּ, מָה רָאָה שִׁמְעוֹן לְהִזְדַּוֵּג עִם לֵוִי יוֹתֵר מֵהַכֹּל, וַהֲרֵי רְאוּבֵן הָיָה אָחִיו וְסָמוּךְ לוֹ? אֶלָּא שִׁמְעוֹן רָאָה וְיָדַע שֶׁלֵּוִי בָּא מִצַּד הַדִּין, וְשִׁמְעוֹן נֶאֱחָז יוֹתֵר בְּצַד הַדִּין הַקָּשֶׁה. אָמַר, נִתְעָרֵב אֵחָד עִם אֶחָד, וְאָנוּ נַחֲרִיב אֶת הָעוֹלָם. מֶה עָשָׂה הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא? נָטַל לְחֶלְקוֹ אֶת לֵוִי וְאָמַר: מִכָּאן וָהָלְאָה שֶׁיֵּשֵׁב שִׁמְעוֹן עִם שַׁלְשֶׁלֶת הַגְּבוּרָה עִמּוֹ לְבַדּוֹ.


Zohar Acharei Mot
Continued from previous DZ
Genesis 42:24
“וַיִּסֹּב מֵעֲלֵיהֶם וַיֵּבְךְּ וַיָּשָׁב אֲלֵהֶם וַיְדַבֵּר אֲלֵהֶם וַיִּקַּח מֵאִתָּם אֶת שִׁמְעוֹן וַיֶּאֱסֹר אֹתוֹ לְעֵינֵיהֶם.”
“And he turned himself away from them and wept. Then he returned to them again and talked with them. And he took Simeon from them and bound him before their eyes.”
Rabbi Shimon asks what caused Joseph to separate Shimon from the other brothers? and he answers. Joseph knew that Shimon was on the side of judgment. Shimon was the first with his brother Levi to plot the killing of Joseph (Genesis 37:19,20). Shimon and Levi killed Hamor, the prince of Shechem, for raping their sister, Dinah. They also killed all the people of Shechem for the crime of their prince.
Joseph knew that separating Shimon from Levi and the other brothers reduced the risk of judgment that they could inflict on him and Egypt.

Why did Shimon connect to his younger brother Levi instead of his older brother Reuven? The answer is; that Shimon was from the side of harsh judgment, and Levi was also from the Left side of judgment. Shimon knew that together they had the power to destroy the world. For that reason, and to keep a peaceful process, Hashem separated the harsh judgment from them by bounding Shimon with ropes.
