He prayed, "Lord, God of my master Abraham, give me success today and keep your promise to my master.
Here I am at the well where the young women of the city will be coming to get water.
I will say to one of them, "Please, lower your jar and let me have a drink.' If she says, "Drink, and I will also bring water for your camels,' may she be the one that you have chosen for your servant Isaac. If this happens, I will know that you have kept your promise to my master."
Before he had finished praying, Rebecca arrived with a water jar on her shoulder. She was the daughter of Bethuel, who was the son of Abraham's brother Nahor and his wife Milcah.
She was a very beautiful young woman and still a virgin. She went down to the well, filled her jar, and came back.
The servant ran to meet her and said, "Please give me a drink of water from your jar."
She said, "Drink, sir," and quickly lowered her jar from her shoulder and held it while he drank.
When he had finished, she said, "I will also bring water for your camels and let them have all they want."
She quickly emptied her jar into the animals' drinking trough and ran to the well to get more water, until she had watered all his camels.
The man kept watching her in silence, to see if the Lord had given him success.
When she had finished, the man took an expensive gold ring and put it in her nose and put two large gold bracelets on her arms.
