Now Rebecca had a brother named Laban, and he ran outside to go to the well where Abraham's servant was.
Laban had seen the nose ring and the bracelets on his sister's arms and had heard her say what the man had told her. He went to Abraham's servant, who was standing by his camels at the well,
and said, "Come home with me. You are a man whom the Lord has blessed. Why are you standing out here? I have a room ready for you in my house, and there is a place for your camels."
So the man went into the house, and Laban unloaded the camels and gave them straw and fodder. Then he brought water for Abraham's servant and his men to wash their feet.
When food was brought, the man said, "I will not eat until I have said what I have to say." Laban said, "Go on and speak."
"I am the servant of Abraham," he began.
"The Lord has greatly blessed my master and made him a rich man. He has given him flocks of sheep and goats, cattle, silver, gold, male and female slaves, camels, and donkeys.
Sarah, my master's wife, bore him a son when she was old, and my master has given everything he owns to him.
My master made me promise with a vow to obey his command. He said, "Do not choose a wife for my son from the young women in the land of Canaan.
Instead, go to my father's people, to my relatives, and choose a wife for him.'
And I asked my master, "What if she will not come with me?'
