"The LORD has greatly blessed my master, and he has become rich. He has given him sheep and cattle, silver and gold, male and female slaves, and camels and donkeys.
Sarah, my master's wife, bore a son to my master in her old age, and he has given him everything he owns.
My master put me under this oath: 'You will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites in whose land I live
but will go to my father's household and to my family to take a wife for my son.'
But I said to my master, 'Suppose the woman will not come back with me?'
He said to me, 'The LORD before whom I have walked will send His angel with you and make your journey a success, and you will take a wife for my son from my family and from my father's household.
Then you will be free from my oath if you go to my family and they do not give [her] to you-- you will be free from my oath.'
"Today when I came to the spring, I prayed: LORD, God of my master Abraham, if only You will make my journey successful!
I am standing here at a spring. Let the virgin who comes out to draw water, and I say to her: Please let me drink a little water from your jug,
and who responds to me, 'Drink, and I'll draw water for your camels also'-- let her be the woman the LORD has appointed for my master's son.
"Before I had finished praying in my heart, there was Rebekah coming with her jug on her shoulder, and she went down to the spring and drew water. So I said to her: Please let me have a drink.
She quickly lowered her jug from her [shoulder] and said, 'Drink, and I'll water your camels also.' So I drank, and she also watered the camels.
Then I asked her: Whose daughter are you? She responded, 'The daughter of Bethuel son of Nahor, whom Milcah bore to him.' So I put the ring on her nose and the bracelets on her wrists.
Then I bowed down, worshiped the LORD, and praised the LORD, the God of my master Abraham, who guided me on the right way to take the daughter of my master's brother for his son.
Now, if you are going to show kindness and faithfulness to my master, tell me; if not, tell me, and I will go elsewhere."
Laban and Bethuel answered, "This is from the LORD; we have no choice in the matter.
Rebekah is here in front of you. Take [her] and go, and let her be a wife for your master's son, just as the LORD has spoken."
When Abraham's servant heard their words, he bowed to the ground before the LORD.
Then he brought out objects of silver and gold, and garments, and gave [them] to Rebekah. He also gave precious gifts to her brother and her mother.
Then he and the men with him ate and drank and spent the night. When they got up in the morning, he said, "Send me to my master."
But her brother and mother said, "Let the girl stay with us for about 10 days. Then she can go."
But he responded to them, "Do not delay me, since the LORD has made my journey a success. Send me away so that I may go to my master."
So they said, "Let's call the girl and ask her opinion."
They called Rebekah and said to her, "Will you go with this man?" She replied, "I will go."
So they sent away their sister Rebekah and her nurse, and Abraham's servant and his men.
They blessed Rebekah, saying to her: Our sister, may you become thousands upon ten thousands. May your offspring possess the gates of their enemies.
Then Rebekah and her young women got up, mounted the camels, and followed the man. So the servant took Rebekah and left.
Now Isaac was returning from Beer-lahai-roi, for he was living in the Negev region.
In the early evening, Isaac went out to walk in the field, and looking up, he saw camels coming.
Rebekah looked up, and when she saw Isaac, she got down from her camel
and asked the servant, "Who is that man in the field coming to meet us?" The servant answered, "It is my master." So she took her veil and covered herself.
Then the servant told Isaac everything he had done.
And Isaac brought her into the tent of his mother Sarah and took Rebekah to be his wife. Isaac loved her, and he was comforted after his mother's [death].
