Counting Our Tears

I am trying to find out the Bible scripture and verse that says that “God counts every tear that a woman sheds”. Can you please give me the scripture and verse because I know it says it in the Bible somewhere. Thank you.

Q. I am trying to find out the Bible scripture and verse that says that “God counts every tear that a woman sheds”. Can you please give me the scripture and verse because I know it says it in the Bible somewhere. Thank you.

A. Psalm 56:8 says. “Record my lament; list my tears on your scroll — are they not in your record?” While not specific to women, it does say that God counts all our tears.

The exact phrase you’re looking for might be from the Talmud, a Jewish companion to the Torah (the first 5 books of the Bible). Here’s a quote from an on line Jewish commentary.

“The Talmud says that God counts a woman’s tears, and men are warned to make sure that they do not cause their wives pain.” (Baba Metzia 59)
