* BedTrick: Jacob's wedding. He had worked for Laban for seven years in order to get permission to marry Laban's daughter Rachel, but on the night of the wedding Laban swapped Rachel for her older sister Leah. Jacob didn't notice this until they were already married, so he had to work another seven years for permission to marry Rachel, the girl he actually loved.

* SadlyMythtaken: The ForbiddenFruit is not actually mentioned as being an apple. (Indeed, apples are not native to the Fertile Crescent, and would most likely have been unfamiliar to the original writers/storytellers.) That was a VisualPun that came about when the story was translated into Latin, because the words for "evil" and "apple" are similar.

**The verb used in 8:13 (חרב/''charav'') is actually different than that used in 8:14 (יבש/''yabesh''). The former can be translated more specifically as 'free of water', while the latter is stronger, implying being completely 'dried up' or 'withered'.

* HopeSpot: After learning that God plans to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah for their wickedness, Abraham is able to bargain God down to sparing them if there are at least ten righteous men there for the sake of Lot and his family. It isn't enough.
