Abraham was old, and well stricken in age. Yahweh had blessed Abraham in all things.
Abraham said to his servant, the elder of his house, who ruled over all that he had, "Please put your hand under my thigh.
I will make you swear by Yahweh, the God of heaven and the God of the earth, that you shall not take a wife for my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I live.
But you shall go to my country, and to my relatives, and take a wife for my son Isaac."
The servant said to him, "What if the woman isn't willing to follow me to this land? Must I bring your son again to the land you came from?"
Abraham said to him, "Beware that you don't bring my son there again.
