The servant asked him, "What if the woman is unwilling to come back with me to this land?1 Shall I then take your son back to the country you came from?2"
"Make sure that you do not take my son back there,"3 Abraham said.
"The LORD, the God of heaven,4 who brought me out of my father's household and my native land5 and who spoke to me and promised me on oath, saying, 'To your offspringa6 I will give this land'7--he will send his angel before you8 so that you can get a wife for my son from there.
If the woman is unwilling to come back with you, then you will be released from this oath9 of mine. Only do not take my son back there."109
So the servant put his hand under the thigh11 of his master12 Abraham and swore an oath to him concerning this matter.
