Genesis 24:34-38, 42-49, 58-67
36 And SarahN my master’s wife bore a son to my master when she was old;O and he has given him all that he has. 37 My master made me swear,P saying, ‘You shall not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites,Q in whose land I live;R 38 but you shall go to my father’sS house, to my kindred,T and get a wife for my son.’
43 Z I am standingAA here by the spring of water; let the young womanBB who comes out to draw, to whom I shall say, “PleaseCC give me a little water from your jarDD to drink,” 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 appointedEE for my master’s son.’
45 “Before I had finishedFF speaking in my heart,GG there wasHH RebekahII coming out with her water jar on her shoulder;JJ and she went down to the spring, and drew. I said to her, ‘Please let me drink.’
46 She quicklyKK 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.
47 Then I askedLL her, ‘Whose daughter are you?’
She said, ‘The daughter of Bethuel,MM Nahor’sNN son, whom MilcahOO bore to him.’
63 Isaac went out in the evening to walkPPP in the field; and looking up,QQQ he sawRRR, SSS camels coming.
64 And Rebekah looked up, and when she saw Isaac, she slipped quickly from the camel, 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 covered herself.
66 And the servant toldTTT Isaac all the thingsUUU that he had done. 67 Then Isaac brought her into his motherVVV Sarah’s tent.WWW He took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her. So Isaac was comfortedXXX after his mother’s death.
