Genesis 24:1-7 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
1 By now Abraham was old, and the LORD had blessed him in every way. 2 So Abraham said to the senior servant of his household who was in charge of all that he owned, "Take a solemn oath. 3 I want you to swear by the LORD God of heaven and earth that you will not get my son a wife from the daughters of the Canaanites among whom I'm living. 4 Instead, you will go to the land of my relatives and get a wife for my son Isaac." 5 The servant asked him, "What if the woman doesn't want to come back to this land with me? Should I take your son all the way back to the land you came from?" 6 "Make sure that you do not take my son back there," Abraham said to him. 7 "The LORD God of heaven took me from my father's home and the land of my family. He spoke to me and swore this oath: 'I will give this land to your descendants.' "God will send his angel ahead of you, and you will get my son a wife from there.
