24:34 So he said, "I am Abraham's servant.
24:35 The LORD has greatly blessed my master, and he has become wealthy; he has given
him flocks and herds, silver and gold, male and female slaves, camels and donkeys.
24:36 And Sarah my master's wife bore a son to my master when she was old; and he has
given him all that he has.
24:37 My master made me swear, saying, 'You shall not take a wife for my son from the
daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I live;
24:38 but you shall go to my father's house, to my kindred, and get a wife for my son.'
24:42 "I came today to the spring, and said, 'O LORD, the God of my master
Abraham, if now you will only make successful the way I am going!
24:43 I am standing here by the spring of water; let the young woman who comes out to
draw, to whom I shall say, "Please give me a little water from your jar to
24:44 and who will say to me, "Drink, and I will draw for your camels also"
--let her be the woman whom the LORD has appointed for my master's son.'
24:45 "Before I had finished speaking in my heart, there was Rebekah coming out
with her water jar on her shoulder; and she went down to the spring, and drew. I said to
her, 'Please let me drink.'
24:46 She quickly let down her jar from her shoulder, and said, 'Drink, and I will also
water your camels.' So I drank, and she also watered the camels.
24:47 Then I asked her, 'Whose daughter are you?' She said, 'The daughter of Bethuel,
Nahor's son, whom Milcah bore to him.' So I put the ring on her nose, and the bracelets on
24:48 Then I bowed my head and worshiped the LORD, and blessed the LORD, the God of my
master Abraham, who had led me by the right way to obtain the daughter of my master's
kinsman for his son.
24:49 Now then, if you will deal loyally and truly with my master, tell me; and if not,
tell me, so that I may turn either to the right hand or to the left."
24:58 And they called Rebekah, and said to her, "Will you go with this man?"
She said, "I will."
24:59 So they sent away their sister Rebekah and her nurse along with Abraham's servant
and his men.
24:60 And they blessed Rebekah and said to her, "May you, our sister, become
thousands of myriads; may your offspring gain possession of the gates of their foes."
24:61 Then Rebekah and her maids rose up, mounted the camels, and followed the man;
thus the servant took Rebekah, and went his way.
24:62 Now Isaac had come from Beer-lahai-roi, and was settled in the Negeb.
24:63 Isaac went out in the evening to walk in the field; and looking up, he saw camels
24:64 And Rebekah looked up, and when she saw Isaac, she slipped quickly from the
24:65 and said to the servant, "Who is the man over there, walking in the field to
meet us?" The servant said, "It is my master." So she took her veil and
24:66 And the servant told Isaac all the things that he had done.
24:67 Then Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent. He took Rebekah, and she
became his wife; and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother's death.
