Rebekah also told herself, "Heth's daughters are making me tired of living. If Jacob marries one of Heth's daughters, and she turns out to be just like these other local women, what kind of life would there be left for me?"
"Why does God give light to the sufferer or life to the bitter person:
"Do I have the strength to wait? And why should I be patient?
My days pass as swiftly as a hand-loom; they come to their conclusion without hope.
"I am disgusted with living, so I'm going to talk about my complaint freely. I'll speak out from the bitterness of my soul.
So I hated life, because whatever is done on earth causes me trouble it's all pointless, like chasing after the wind.
Next I turned to consider all kinds of oppression that exists on earth. Look at the tears of the oppressed there is no one to comfort them. Power is on the side of their oppressors; so they have no comforters.
So I commended the dead who had already died as being happier than the living who are still alive.
