Genesis 24

And Abraham awas old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had bblessed Abraham in all things. 2 And Abraham said cunto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled dover all that he had, ePut, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh: 3 And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt fnot take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell: 4 But thou shalt go gunto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac. 5 And the servant said unto him, Peradventure the woman will not be willing to follow me unto this land: must I needs bring thy son again unto the land from whence thou camest? 6 And Abraham said unto him, Beware hthou that thou bring not my son thither again.

7 The LORD God of heaven, which took ime from my father's house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware unto me, saying, jUnto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send khis angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence. 8 And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then thou shalt lbe clear from this my oath: only bring not my son thither again. 9 And the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and sware to him concerning that matter.

10 And the servant took ten camels of the camels of his master, and departed; for all the goods of his master were in his hand: and he arose, and went to Mesopotamia, unto the mcity of Nahor. 11 And he made his camels to kneel down without the city by a well of water at the time of the evening, even the time that women ngo out to draw water. 12 And he said, oO LORD God of my master Abraham, pI pray thee, send me good speed this day, and shew kindness unto my master Abraham. 13 Behold, I stand here by the well of water; and the daughters of the men of the city come out to draw water: 14 And let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say, Let down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink; and she shall say, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: let the same be she qthat thou hast appointed for thy servant Isaac; and rthereby shall I know that thou hast shewed kindness unto my master.

15 And it came to pass, sbefore he had done speaking, that, behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of tMilcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder. 16 And the damsel was uvery fair to look upon, a virgin, neither had any man known her: and she went down to the well, and filled her pitcher, and came up. 17 And the servant ran to meet her, and said, vLet me, I pray thee, drink a little water of thy pitcher. 18 And she said, wDrink, my lord: and she hasted, and let down her pitcher upon her hand, and gave him drink. 19 And when she had done giving him drink, she said, I will draw water for thy camels also, until they have done drinking. 20 And she hasted, and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and ran again unto the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels. 21 And the man xwondering at her held his peace, to wit whether the LORD had made his journey prosperous or not.

22 And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man took a golden earring of yhalf a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold; 23 And said, Whose daughter art thou? tell me, I pray thee: is there room in thy father's house for us to lodge in? 24 And she said unto him, I am the daughter of Bethuel the son of Milcah, which she bare unto Nahor. 25 She said moreover unto him, We zhave both straw and provender enough, and room to lodge in. 26 And the man abowed down his head, and worshipped the LORD. 27 And he said, bBlessed be the LORD God of my master Abraham, who hath not left destitute my master of chis mercy and his truth: I being in the way, dthe LORD led me to the house of my master's brethren. 28 And the damsel ran, and told them of her mother's house these things.

29 And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was eLaban: and Laban ran out unto the man, unto the well. 30 And it came to pass, when he saw the earring and bracelets upon his sister's hands, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying, Thus spake the man unto me; that he came unto the man; and, behold, he stood by the camels at the well. 31 And he said, Come in, fthou blessed of the LORD; wherefore standest thou without? for I have prepared the house, and room for the camels.

32 And the man came into the house: and he ungirded his camels, and ggave straw and provender for the camels, and water to wash his feet, and the men's feet that were with him. 33 And there was set meat before him to eat: but he said, hI will not eat, until I have told mine errand. And he said, Speak on. 34 And he said, I am Abraham's servant. 35 And the LORD hath iblessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him jflocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses. 36 And Sarah my master's wife bare ka son to my master when she was old: and lunto him hath he given all that he hath. 37 And my master mmade me swear, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife to my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell: 38 But thou shalt go unto my father's house, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son. 39 And I said unto my master, Peradventure the woman will not follow me. 40 And nhe said unto me, The LORD, before whom oI walk, will send his pangel with thee, and prosper thy way; and thou shalt take a wife for my son of my kindred, and of my father's house: 41 Then qshalt thou be clear from this my oath, when thou comest to my kindred; and if they give not thee one, thou shalt be clear from my oath.

42 And I came this day unto the well, and said, rO LORD God of my master Abraham, if now thou sdo prosper my way which I go: 43 Behold, tI stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass, that when the virgin cometh forth to draw water, and I say to her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water of thy pitcher to drink; 44 And she say to me, uBoth drink thou, and I will also draw for thy camels: let the same be the woman whom the LORD hath appointed out for my master's son. 45 And vbefore I had wdone speaking in mine heart, behold, Rebekah came forth with her pitcher on her shoulder; and she went down unto the well, and drew water: and I said unto her, Let me drink, I pray thee. 46 And she made haste, and let down her pitcher from her shoulder, and said, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: so I drank, and she made the camels drink also. 47 And I asked her, and said, Whose daughter art thou? And she said, The daughter of Bethuel, Nahor's son, whom Milcah bare unto him: and I put the xearring upon her face, and the bracelets upon her hands. 48 And I ybowed down my head, and worshipped the LORD, and blessed the LORD God of my master Abraham, which had zled me in the right way to take my master's brother's daughter unto his son.

49 And now aif ye will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me: and if not, tell me; that I may turn to the right hand, or to the left. 50 Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, bThe thing proceedeth from the LORD: we cannot speak unto thee bad or good. 51 Behold, Rebekah is cbefore thee, take her, and go, and let her be thy master's son's wife, as the LORD hath spoken. 52 And it came to pass, that, when Abraham's servant heard their words, he worshipped the LORD, bowing himself to the earth. 53 And the servant brought forth jewels dof silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment, and gave them to Rebekah: he gave also to her brother and to her mother eprecious things.

54 And they did eat and drink, he and the men that were with him, and tarried all night; and they rose up in the morning, and he said, fSend me away unto my master. 55 And her brother and her mother said, Let the damsel abide with us a few days, at the least ten; after that she shall go. 56 And he said unto them, Hinder me not, seeing the gLORD hath prospered my way; send me away that I may go to my master. 57 And they said, We will call the damsel, and inquire at her mouth. 58 And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with this man? And she said, I will go. 59 And they sent away Rebekah their sister, and her hnurse, and Abraham's servant, and his men. 60 And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister, be thou ithe mother of thousands of millions, and let thy jseed possess the gate of those which hate them.

61 And Rebekah arose, and her damsels, and they rode upon the camels, and followed the man: and the servant took Rebekah, and went his way. 62 And Isaac came from the way of the well kLahai-roi; for he dwelt in the south country. 63 And Isaac went out lto meditate in the field at the eventide: and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming. 64 And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she lighted moff the camel. 65 For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore she took a nveil, and covered herself. 66 And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done. 67 And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and oIsaac was comforted after his mother's death.
