The only tribe I want to talk about at this point is Simeon. In Gen. 49, we read that Simeon would be scattered in Israel. In Joshua 19:1 we see that this prophecy was fulfilled when Simeon was given cities in Judah.
This took place because Simeon, the second son of Jacob (Israel) when in unto one of his father's concubines and laid with her which resulted in God judging not only Simeon but also all of his offspring - the tribe of Simeon.
That is why the tribe of Simeon had little importance in Israel.
