When the camels had finished drinking,

the man took a gold ring weighing a half-shekel and two bracelets for her wrists weighing ten shekels in gold,

and said, “Whose daughter are you?

Please tell me, is there room for us to lodge in your father’s house?”

She said to him, “I am the daughter of Bethuel, the son of Milcah, whom she bore to Nahor.”

Again she said to him, “We have plenty of both straw and feed, and room to lodge in.” Genesis 24:22-25

(And Bethuel begat Rebekah: Genesis 22:23)

If I may interject an old song:

T’was a day in early springtime

By an ancient wayside well

Eliezer paused to rest his camel train

He had found a bride for Isaac

‘Ere the evening shadows fell

For his weary journey had not been in vain.

 

So he took the fair Rebekah

Decked with jewels rich and rare

Back to Abraham and Isaac far away

Where Rebekah loved her Isaac

And he loved Rebekah fair

Oh, it must have been a happy wedding day.

 

Now the blessed Holy Spirit

From the Father God above

Has come back to earth to find a worthy bride

For our Isaac over yonder

Has prepared his tents of love

And He wants His fair Rebekah by His side.

 

We have left our kinfolk gladly

We have bade the world “goodbye”

We are going to a land beyond the sky

Where we’ll soon behold our Isaac

In that blessed eternity

What a happy, happy wedding that will be.

 

Chorus:

Oh, get ready, evening shadows fall

Don’t you hear the Eliezer call

There’s going to be a wedding

Our joy will soon begin

In the evening when the camel train comes in!

Then the man bowed low and worshiped the Lord.

He said, “Blessed be the Lord, the God of my master Abraham,

who has not forsaken His loving kindness and His truth toward my master;

as for me, the Lord has guided me in the way to the house of my master’s brothers.

Then the girl ran and told her mother’s household about these things. Genesis 24:26-28

 'And Rebekah had a brother, 
.. and his name was Laban: 
.... and Laban ran out unto the man, 
...... unto the well.
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.
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."'

(Gen 24:29-31)  

Praise God!

'And the man (Abraham's servant) 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.
And there was set meat before him to eat: 
but he said, 
"I will not eat, until I have told mine errand. "
And he (Laban) said, 
"Speak on."

(Gen 24:32-33)

And he said, I am Abraham's servant.

 

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.

 

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.

 

(Genesis 24:34-36) 

(Thank You, Lord)

'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:
........ But thou shalt go unto my father's house, 
.......... and to my kindred, 
............ and take a wife unto my son."
And I said unto my master, 
.. "Peradventure the woman will not follow me."
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: 
............ 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 oath."'

(Genesis 24:37-41) 

Praise God!

So I came today to the spring...

and said, O Lord, the God of my master Abraham...

if now You will make my journey on which I go successful;

behold, I am standing by the spring,

and may it be that the maiden who comes out to draw,

and to whom I say, “Please let me drink a little water from your jar”

and she will say to me, “You drink, and I will draw for your camels also”

let her be the woman whom the Lord has appointed for my master’s son.’ Genesis 24:42-44

Before I had finished speaking in my heart,

behold, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder,

and went down to the spring and drew,

and I said to her, ‘Please let me drink.’

She quickly lowered her jar from her shoulder,

and said, ‘Drink, and I will water your camels also’;

so I drank, and she watered the camels also. Genesis 24:45:46

Praise God!
