However when the seven years were complete and he asked for his wife, Laban deceived Jacob by switching Rachel's older sister, Leah, as the veiled bride. In the morning, when the truth became known, Laban justified his action, saying that in his country it was unheard of to give a younger daughter before the older. However, he agreed to give Rachel in marriage as well within the if Jacob would work another seven years. So what did Jacob do? He worked another hard seven year without any hesitation.

* Similarly, there's the reunion between Jacob's son Joseph and his brothers. Joseph's brothers had sold him into slavery in Egypt. Through a series of events, Joseph rises to a position of power and helps Egypt prepare for a famine. When thea famine strikes both Egypt and Canaan, Jacob sends his sons to Egypt, where Joseph has helped store food. When Joseph and his brothers first meet, they don't recognize him. When they realize who he is, they are afraid he might use his position of power to get revenge on them for selling him into slavery. Joseph, however, assures them he has forgiven them, saying that what they intended for bad, God had used for good.

-->''So He said, "Go forth and stand on the mountain before the LORD." And behold, the LORD was passing by! And a great and strong wind was rending the mountains and breaking in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of a gentle blowing. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. And behold, a voice came to him and said, "What are you doing here, Elijah?"''

** According to Matthew and Mark's accounts, both criminals insulted Jesus, while Luke says the "good" criminal defended him. While this seems contradictory at first, if you take all three accounts as [[IncrediblyLamePun gospel]], then this "good" criminal initially criticized Jesus. However, he eventually [[HeelRealization realized he was in the wrong]] ''while hanging on the cross'', and subsequently defended Jesus. ''And Jesus still forgave him!'' Talk about a [[RedemptionEqualsDeath last-minute redemption]].

* Simeon being able to meet Jesus as a baby before he dies. As Simeon himself states, ''Then he took him up in his arms , and blessed God, and said, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, While thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.'' (John 2: 28-32). Not only does the guy get to die happy, but he also foretells the hope that Jesus will bring to God's people.
