Our story moves on to the next generation of characters the heir to God's promise the praying servant and the hospitable young woman who left her father and her native land to marry a stranger named Isaac.
A WIFE FOR ISAAC Go back to the relatives and select carefully. Genesis 24
2Abraham said to the oldest servant of his house, who ruled over all that he had, "Please swear by the God of heaven and earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell; 4but you shall go to my country and to my family, and take a wife for Isaac." 10Then the servant took ten of his master's camels and went to Mesopotamia, to the city of Nahor. 11He made his camels kneel down outside the city by a well of water at evening time, the time when women go out to draw water. 12He prayed, "Lord God of my master Abraham, please give me success, and show kindness to my master. 13Here I stand by the well of water, and the daughters of the city are coming out to draw water. 14Let it be that the young woman to whom I say, 'Please let down your pitcher that I may drink,' and she says, 'Drink, and I will also give your camels a drink'--let her be the one You have appointed for Your servant Isaac." 15Before he had finished speaking, Rebekah, who was born to Bethuel, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, came out with her pitcher on her shoulder. Now the young woman was very beautiful. She went down to the well, filled her pitcher, and came up. 17The servant ran to meet her and said, "Please let me drink a little water from your pitcher." 18So she said, "Drink, my lord." 19When she had finished giving him a drink, she said, "I will draw water for your camels also, until they have finished drinking." 29Rebekah had a brother named Laban, who ran out to meet the man by the well. 31And he said, "Come in, O blessed of the Lord! For I have prepared the house, and a place for the camels." 33Food was set before him, but he said, "I will not eat until I have told about my errand. 34 I am Abraham's servant. . . . 49Now if you will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me." 50Then Laban and Bethuel answered, "The thing comes from the Lord. 51Here is Rebekah; let her be your master's son's wife. " 54When they arose in the morning, 58they called Rebekah and said to her, "Will you go with this man?" She said, "I will go." 61So the servant took Rebekah and departed. 63 Isaac went out to meditate in the field in the evening; he lifted his eyes, and there, the camels were coming. 64Rebekah saw Isaac and dismounted from her camel; 65she took a veil and covered herself. 67Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent; she became his wife, and he loved her.
