"Remember that there is meaning beyond absurdity."
(16) When Jacob came home from the field in the evening, Leah went out to meet him and said, “You are to sleep with me, for I have hired you with my son’s mandrakes.” And he lay with her that night.
והיינו דאמר רבי יוחנן מאי דכתיב (בראשית ל, טז) וישכב עמה בלילה הוא מלמד שהקב"ה סייע באותו מעשה
This is in line with what Rabbi Yohanan stated: What is the implication of the Scriptural text, "And he lay with her in that night" (Genesis 30:16)? It teaches that the Holy One, blessed be God, assisted in that matter.
