Scripture

 
Bitterness as a root issue - The Adultery Test Numbers 5:
26and the priest shall take a handful of the grain offering as its memorial offering
and offer it up in smoke on the altar, and afterward he shall make the woman drink the water.
27When he has made her drink the water, then it shall come about, if she has defiled herself and has been unfaithful to her husband, that the water which brings a curse
will go into her and cause bitterness, and her abdomen will swell
and her thigh will waste away (needing hip replacement), and the woman will become a curse (rejected) among her people.

28'But if the woman has not defiled herself and is clean, she will then be free and conceive children.
