When Rachel saw that she wasn't having any children, she became jealous of her sister. "Give me children, or I'll die!" she exclaimed to Jacob.
Jacob flew into a rage. "Am I God?" he asked. "He is the only one able to give you children!"
Then Rachel told him, "Sleep with my servant, Bilhah, and she will bear children for me."
So Rachel gave him Bilhah to be his wife, and Jacob slept with her.
Bilhah became pregnant and presented him with a son.
Rachel named him Dan, a for she said, "God has vindicated me! He has heard my request and given me a son."
