Genesis 24:24 Meaning and Commentary

Genesis 24:24

And she said unto him, I [am] the daughter of Bethuel the son
of Milcah
Which Milcah was the daughter of Haran, Abraham's elder brother, and, as thought by many, sister to Sarah, Abraham's wife, see ( Genesis 11:29 ) : which she bare unto Nahor;
Abraham's brother; so that her father was Nahor's son, not by his concubine Reumah, but by his lawful wife Milcah, which sets Rebekah's descent in a true light, see ( Genesis 22:20-24 ) ; whether she told her own name is not certain, it may be, since the servant bade it, ( Genesis 24:45 ) .
