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 & offer it up in smoke on the altar.  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 & has been unfaithful to her husband, that the water which brings a curse will go into her & cause bitterness, & her abdomen will swell & her thigh will waste away (needing hip replacement), & the woman will become a curse (rejected) among her people.
28'But if the woman has not defiled herself & is clean, she will then be free & conceive children.
