This is the case in the story of Sarah (Genesis 18:12), of Manoah’s wife (Judges 13:8–14) and of the Shunammite woman (2 Kings 4:16); it is also the case, somewhat, in the story of Rebeccah (Genesis 25:22). She, although raising no doubts about the promise that she will conceive, does wonder, when she begins to sense mighty strugglings in her womb (the twins fighting), whether the divine promise will be fulfilled and the offspring carried to term.
