43 I am standing here by the spring of water, so let the maiden who comes out to draw water, to whom I will say, Please give me a little water from your pitcher to drink,
44 And she will say to me, Drink, and I will also draw water for your camels – let her be the woman whom Jehovah has appointed for my master’s son.
45 Before I had finished speaking in my heart, there came Rebekah, and her pitcher was on her shoulder. And she went down to the spring and drew water. And I said to her, Please let me drink.
46 And she hurried and let down her pitcher from her shoulder and said, Drink, and I will also give your camels a drink. So I drank, and she also gave the camels a drink.
47 And I asked her and said, Whose daughter are you? And she said, The daughter of Bethuel, Nahor’s son, whom Milcah bore to him. And I put the nose-ring upon her nose and the bracelets upon her hands.
48 And I bowed and worshipped Jehovah and blessed Jehovah, the God of my master Abraham, who had led me in the right way to take the daughter of my master’s brother for his son.
49 And now if you will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me so; but if not, tell me so, that I may turn to the right hand or to the left.
50 Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The matter comes from Jehovah; we cannot speak to you bad or good.
51 Here is Rebekah before you: Take her, and go; and let her be the wife of your master’s son, as Jehovah has spoken.
52 And when Abraham’s servant heard their words, he bowed down to the earth to Jehovah.
53 And the servant brought forth silver jewelry and gold jewelry and clothing and gave them to Rebekah. He also gave precious things to her brother and to her mother.
54 And they ate and drank, he and the men who were with him, and spent the night. And they rose up in the morning, and he said, Send me away to my master.
55 And her brother and her mother said, Let the girl stay with us a few days, ten or so; after that she may go.
56 And he said to them, Do not delay me, since Jehovah has made my journey prosperous. Send me away that I may go to my master.
57 And they said, Let us call the girl and ask her.
58 And they called Rebekah and said to her, Will you go with this man? And she said, I will go.
59 So they sent away Rebekah their sister and her nurse and Abraham’s servant and his men.
60 And they blessed Rebekah and said to her, May you, our sister, become Thousands of ten thousands, And may your seed possess The gate of those who hate them.
61 And Rebekah arose with her maids, and they rode on the camels and followed the man. And the servant took Rebekah and went away.
62 Now Isaac had come from going to Beer-lahai-roi, for he was dwelling in the region of the Negev.
63 And Isaac went out to meditate in the field toward evening. And he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, camels were coming.
64 And Rebekah lifted up her eyes; and when she saw Isaac, she sprang off the camel.
65 And she said to the servant, Who is this man who is walking in the field to meet us? And the servant said, It is my master. And she took her veil and covered herself.
66 And the servant told Isaac all the things that he had done.
67 And Isaac brought her into the tent of Sarah his mother. And he took Rebekah, and she became his wife, and he loved her. And Isaac was comforted after the death of his mother.
