Genesis 24:58-67

Genesis 24:58-67 CEB

They called Rebekah and said to her, “Will you go with this man?” She said, “I will go.” So they sent off their sister Rebekah, her nurse, Abraham’s servant, and his men. And they blessed Rebekah, saying to her, “May you, our sister, become thousands of ten thousand; may your children possess their enemies’ cities.” Rebekah and her young women got up, mounted the camels, and followed the man. So the servant took Rebekah and left. Now Isaac had come from the region of Beer-lahai-roi and had settled in the arid southern plain. One evening, Isaac went out to inspect the pasture, and while staring he saw camels approaching. Rebekah stared at Isaac. She got down from the camel and said to the servant, “Who is this man walking through the pasture to meet us?” The servant said, “He’s my master.” So she took her headscarf and covered herself. The servant told Isaac everything that had happened. Isaac brought Rebekah into his mother Sarah’s tent. He received Rebekah as his wife and loved her. So Isaac found comfort after his mother’s death.
