And Abraam said to his servant the elder of his house, who had rule over all his possessions, Put thy hand under my thigh,
and I will adjure thee by the Lord the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou take not a wife for my son Isaac from the daughters of the Chananites, with whom I dwell, in the midst of them.
But thou shalt go instead to my country, where I was born, and to my tribe, and thou shalt take from thence a wife for my son Isaac.
And the servant said to him, Shall I carry back thy son to the land whence thou camest forth, if haply the woman should not be willing to return with me to this land?
And Abraam said to him, Take heed to thyself that thou carry not my son back thither.
The Lord the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, who took me out of my father's house, and out of the land whence I sprang, who spoke to me, and who swore to me, saying, I will give this land to thee and to thy seed, he shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife to my son from thence.
And if the woman should not be willing to come with thee into this land, thou shalt be clear from my oath, only carry not my son thither again.
And the servant put his hand under the thigh of his master Abraam, and swore to him concerning this matter.
And the servant took ten camels of his master's camels, and of all the goods of his master with him, and he arose and went into Mesopotamia to the city of Nachor.
And he rested his camels without the city by the well of water towards evening, when damsels go forth to draw water.
And he said, O Lord God of my master Abraam, prosper my way before me to day, and deal mercifully with my master Abraam.
