Gemoro (Shabbos 55b) "Whoever says Reuvain sinned, is only mistaken. It says in the Pasuk ויהיו בני יעקב שנים עשר ,
all were equal ."
How does the Gemoro know that Reuvain didn’t sin? Maybe he sinned and did Teshuva and therefore he is equal to the rest of the שבטים ?
R. A.L. Shteinman shlita answered
The Pasuk ויהיו בני יעקב שנים עשר is written immediately after
The Maaseh of וישכב את בלהה Reuvain didn’t do Teshuva only
after the Maaseh of Yehuda and Tamar , while the brothers were
selling Yosef to the Yishmaeilim. He was equal to the brothers before
doing Teshuva because he never sinned.
R.Ch. Kaniyevski shlita answered
Had Reuvain sinned and done Teshuva, he would not have been
equal to the brothers. He would have been greater than them.במקום שבעלי תשובה עומדים אין צדיקים גמורים עומדים
