* TheUnfavorite: Is this to Jacob, who considers her younger sister Rachel his OneTrueLove. However, she more than makes up for this by finding favor with God and praising Him upon the birth of Judah. Indeed, she is ultimately buried in the Cave of the Patriarchs instead of Rachel, and through Judah, it is her descendants who survive while [[Literature/BookOfKings the rest of the Israelites are wiped out]].
