We call this irony

God promises Abraham that he'll be made into a great nation, and the whole of the land of Canaan will belong to him.

In the next story his first son is imperilled.
In the story after that, his second son is imperilled.
Then, for a change of pace, he's forced to haggle with a clique of self-important Hitties about an overpriced burial cave.

This, ladies and genteleman, is called IRONY.
