He said, "Praise the LORD, the God of my master Abraham. The LORD hasn't failed to be kind and faithful to my master. The LORD has led me on this trip to the home of my master's relatives."
The girl ran and told her mother's household about these things.
Rebekah had a brother whose name was Laban.
He saw the nose ring and the bracelets on his sister's wrists and heard her tell what the man had said to her. Immediately, Laban ran out to the man by the spring. He came to the man, who was standing with the camels by the spring.
He said, "Come in, you whom the LORD has blessed. Why are you standing out here? I have straightened up the house and made a place for the camels."
So the man went into the house. The camels were unloaded and given straw and feed. Then water was brought for him and his men to wash their feet.
When the food was put in front of him, he said, "I won't eat until I've said what I have to say." "Speak up," Laban said.
"I am Abraham's servant," he said.
"The LORD has blessed my master, and he has become wealthy. The LORD has given him sheep and cattle, silver and gold, male and female slaves, camels and donkeys.
My master's wife Sarah gave him a son in her old age, and my master has given that son everything he has.
My master made me swear this oath: 'Don't get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I'm living.
