Instead, go to my father's home and to my relatives, and get my son a wife.'
"I asked my master, 'What if the woman won't come back with me?'
"He answered me, 'I have been living the way the LORD wants me to. The LORD will send his angel with you to make your trip successful. You will get my son a wife from my relatives and from my father's family.
Then you will be free from your oath to me. You will also be free of your oath to me if my relatives are not willing to do this when you go to them.'
"When I came to the spring today, I prayed, 'LORD God of my master Abraham, please make my trip successful.
I'm standing by the spring. I'll say to the young woman who comes out to draw water, "Please give me a drink of water."
If she says to me, "Not only may you have a drink, but I will also draw water for your camels," let her be the woman the LORD has chosen for my master's son.'
"Before I had finished praying, Rebekah came with her jar on her shoulder. She went down to the spring and drew water. "So I asked her, 'May I have a drink?'
She quickly lowered her jar and said, 'Have a drink, and I'll water your camels too.' So I drank, and she also watered the camels.
"Then I asked her, 'Whose daughter are you?' "She answered, 'The daughter of Bethuel, son of Nahor and Milcah.' "I put the ring in her nose and the bracelets on her wrists.
I knelt, bowing down to the LORD. I praised the LORD, the God of my master Abraham. The LORD led me in the right direction to get the daughter of my master's relative for his son.
