Very short note – His wives have I given to another

In the scriptures we read:

D&C 132:39 … [David] hath fallen from his exaltation, and received his portion; and he shall not inherit them out of the world, for I gave them unto another, saith the Lord.

I have, at times, heard women complain that David’s wives were all given to another man by the Lord. Their objection was over whether or not these wives had a say in the matter of who they were given to, as the Lord gave them all to the same man.

But it is the Lord that did it. Have we so little faith in the Lord?

Did Adam complain when God gave him Eve? Or did Eve complain that God gave her to Adam? Was that any different?

How  much faith do we have in the Lord?
