* The ''Literature/BookOfEcclesiastes'', the Teacher, once a knowledgeable person who had everything, has to accept the [[AwfulTruth futility of life]] and how meaningless it is, and is tormented by the very wisdoms he have. He's been DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife, but he can't. Everything he has will one day fade away, everything he knows will become meaningless. And there's nothing new under the sun. And in the end, no one can tell what happens after death, or to comprehend the status of being [[CessationOfExistence non-existent after death]].



** To add to this, there is a theory that he actually committed suicide ''after'' Jesus resurrected and appeared in front of him as the text states that Jesus appeared before the twelve before Matthias, the one who replaced him was even introduced.

** If you think about it, Judas actually ''didn't'' have to die. Because Jesus' death and subsequent resurrection meant the redemption of mankind and all its sins, it's likely Judas' betrayal would have been forgiven had he repented--but Judas was too wrapped up in his own guilt and despair that he just couldn't bear it anymore.

* Judas Iscariot committing suicide after having a literal MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment. It's even worse for those who believe in predestination since that would mean Judas ''was specifically chosen to betray the Son of God''.

** Orthodox Christianity states that the corruption of first people is THE MoralEventHorizon for Satan and his demons. The Holy Tradition states that after that, there's no redemption, as though he was already corrupted by his pride, he still had his chance. After that, no.

* Somewhere in Judges (forget the reference), Jephthah, one of pre-kingdom Israel's [[TitleDrop judges]] (not the judicial kind - they were more like generals) made a rash vow (which are later warned against in the New Testament) that, if God helped him to win a particular battle and return home safely, he would sacrifice the first thing that came out to greet him when he returned. Israel [[CurbStompBattle beat their enemies handily.]] When Jephthah returned home, his daughter (a virgin, and given the customs of that time when girls were married off fairly young, probably only a teenager) was there to greet him.
** If he carried it out word for word as he vowed he did something wrong and unnecessary. Among all those laws and regulations in the Law section of the Old Testament is a way out of his predicament. A substitute sacrifice got you out of vows you failed to fulfill for one one reason or another.

* Job. Here's a guy who had it all: wealth, land, good health, a nice family, and total faith in God. Then he gets designated as a CosmicPlaything (as part of a bet between Satan and God, the former saying that Job would curse God if he lost his material possessions) and [[TraumaCongaLine he proceeds to lose everything on one really bad day]]. Worse, his "[[WithFriendsLikeThese friends]]" come along and tell him that since good people aren't punished, he brought the whole thing upon himself. In the end he gets everything back (and then some), but it's hard not to feel for the guy.
