Genesis Chapter 24
24:1 And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had
blessed Abraham in all things.
24:2 And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled
over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:
24:3 And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the
God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the
daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell:
24:4 But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a
wife unto my son Isaac.
24:5 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?
24:6 And Abraham said unto him, Beware thou that thou bring not my son
24:7 The LORD God of heaven, which took me from my father's house, and
from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware
unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his
angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence.
24:8 And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then thou
shalt be clear from this my oath: only bring not my son thither again.
24:9 And the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master,
and sware to him concerning that matter.
24:10 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 city of Nahor.
24:11 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 go out to
24:12 And he said O LORD God of my master Abraham, I pray thee, send me
good speed this day, and show kindness unto my master Abraham.
24:13 Behold, I stand here by the well of water; and the daughters of
the men of the city come out to draw water:
24:14 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 that
thou hast appointed for thy servant Isaac; and thereby shall I know that
thou hast showed kindness unto my master.
24:15 And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold,
Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of
Nahor, Abraham's brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder.
24:16 And the damsel was very 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.
24:17 And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I pray thee,
drink a little water of thy pitcher.
24:18 And she said, Drink, my lord: and she hasted, and let down her
pitcher upon her hand, and gave him drink.
24:19 And when she had done giving him drink, she said, I will draw
water for thy camels also, until they have done drinking.
24:20 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.
24:21 And the man wondering at her held his peace, to wit whether the
LORD had made his journey prosperous or not.
24:22 And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man
took a golden earring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her
hands of ten shekels weight of gold;
24:23 And said, Whose daughter art thou? tell me, I pray thee: is there
room in thy father's house for us to lodge in?
24:24 And she said unto him, I am the daughter of Bethuel the son of
Milcah, which she bare unto Nahor.
24:25 She said moreover unto him, We have both straw and provender
enough, and room to lodge in.
24:26 And the man bowed down his head, and worshipped the LORD.
24:27 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of my master Abraham, who
hath not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth: I being in
the way, the LORD led me to the house of my master's brethren.
24:28 And the damsel ran, and told them of her mother's house these
24:29 And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was Laban: and Laban ran
out unto the man, unto the well.
24:30 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.
24:31 And he said, Come in, thou blessed of the LORD; wherefore standest
thou without? for I have prepared the house, and room for the camels.
24:32 And the man came into the house: and he ungirded his camels, and
gave straw and provender for the camels, and water to wash his feet, and
the men's feet that were with him.
24:33 And there was set meat before him to eat: but he said, I will not
eat, until I have told mine errand. And he said, Speak on.
24:34 And he said, I am Abraham's servant.
24:35 And the LORD hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become
great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold,
and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.
24:36 And Sarah my master's wife bare a son to my master when she was
old: and unto him hath he given all that he hath.
24:37 And my master made me swear, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife to
my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell:
24:38 But thou shalt go unto my father's house, and to my kindred, and
take a wife unto my son.
24:39 And I said unto my master, Peradventure the woman will not follow
24:40 And he said unto me, The LORD, before whom I walk, will send his
angel with thee, and prosper thy way; and thou shalt take a wife for my
son of my kindred, and of my father's house:
24:41 Then shalt 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
24:42 And I came this day unto the well, and said, O LORD God of my
master Abraham, if now thou do prosper my way which I go:
24:43 Behold, I 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;
24:44 And she say to me, Both 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.
24:45 And before I had done 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.
24:46 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.
24:47 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 earring upon her face, and the bracelets upon her hands.
24:48 And I bowed down my head, and worshipped the LORD, and blessed the
LORD God of my master Abraham, which had led me in the right way to take
my master's brother's daughter unto his son.
24:49 And now if 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.
24:50 Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The thing proceedeth
from the LORD: we cannot speak unto thee bad or good.
24:51 Behold, Rebekah is before thee, take her, and go, and let her be
thy master's son's wife, as the LORD hath spoken.
24:52 And it came to pass, that, when Abraham's servant heard their
words, he worshipped the LORD, bowing himself to the earth.
24:53 And the servant brought forth jewels of silver, and jewels of
gold, and raiment, and gave them to Rebekah: he gave also to her brother
and to her mother precious things.
24:54 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, Send me
away unto my master.
24:55 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.
24:56 And he said unto them, Hinder me not, seeing the LORD hath
prospered my way; send me away that I may go to my master.
24:57 And they said, We will call the damsel, and inquire at her mouth.
24:58 And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with this
man? And she said, I will go.
24:59 And they sent away Rebekah their sister, and her nurse, and
Abraham's servant, and his men.
24:60 And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister,
be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess
the gate of those which hate them.
24:61 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.
24:62 And Isaac came from the way of the well Lahairoi; for he dwelt in
the south country.
24:63 And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide: and
he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming.
24:64 And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she
lighted off the camel.
24:65 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 vail, and covered herself.
24:66 And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done.
24:67 And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and took
Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was
comforted after his mother's death.
