Avraham said to him, "Beware that you don't bring my son there again.
The LORD, the God of heaven, who took me from my father's house, and from the land of my birth, who spoke to me, and who swore to me, saying, 'To your descendants I will give this land.' He will send his angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there.
If the woman isn't willing to follow you, then you shall be clear from this my oath. Only you shall not bring my son there again."
The servant put his hand under the thigh of Avraham his master, and swore to him concerning this matter.
The servant took ten camels, of his master's camels, and departed, having all goodly things of his master's in his hand. He arose, and went to Aram-Naharayim, to the city of Nachor.
He made the camels kneel down outside the city by the well of water at the time of evening, the time that women go out to draw water.
He said, "The LORD, the God of my master Avraham, please give me success this day, and show kindness to my master Avraham.
Behold, I am standing by the spring of water. The daughters of the men of the city are coming out to draw water.
Let it happen, that the young lady to whom I will say, 'Please let down your pitcher, that I may drink.' She will say, 'Drink, and I will also give your camels a drink.' Let the same be she who you have appointed for your servant Yitzchak. Thereby will I know that you have shown kindness to my master."
It happened, before he had done speaking, that behold, Rivka came out, who was born to Betu'el the son of Milkah, the wife of Nachor, Avraham's brother, with her pitcher on her shoulder.
The young lady was very beautiful to look at, a virgin, neither had any man known her. She went down to the spring, filled her pitcher, and came up.
