And Abraham was old [and] far advanced in age: and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things.
And Abraham said to his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:
And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven and the God of the earth, that thou wilt not take a wife for my son of the daughters of the Canaanites among whom I dwell:
But thou shalt go to my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife for my son Isaac.
And the servant said to him, It may be the woman will not be willing to follow me to this land: must I needs bring thy son again to the land from whence thou camest?
And Abraham said to him, Beware that thou bring not my son thither again.
