Genesis 29:31; 30:1-2, 22-24
"When the LORD saw that Leah was not loved, he opened her womb, but Rachel was barren. When Rachel saw that she was not bearing Jacob any children, she became jealous of her sister. So she said to Jacob, 'Give me children, or I'll die!' Jacob became angry with her and said, 'Am I in the place of God, who has kept you from having children?' ... Then God remembered Rachel; He listened to her and opened her womb. She became pregnant and gave birth to a son and said, 'God has taken away my disgrace.' She named him Joseph and said, 'May the LORD add to me another son.' "
