Genesis 24

CEB 1 As the days went by and Abraham became older, the LORD blessed Abraham in every way. NRS 1 Now Abraham was old, well advanced in years; and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things. CEB 2 Abraham said to the oldest servant of his household, who was in charge of everything he owned, "Put your hand under my thigh. NRS 2 Abraham said to his servant, the oldest of his house, who had charge of all that he had, "Put your hand under my thigh CEB 3 By the LORD, God of heaven and earth, give me your word that you won't choose a wife for my son from the Canaanite women among whom I live. NRS 3 and I will make you swear by the Lord, the God of heaven and earth, that you will not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I live, CEB 4 Go to my land and my family and find a wife for my son Isaac there." NRS 4 but will go to my country and to my kindred and get a wife for my son Isaac." CEB 5 The servant said to him, "What if the woman doesn't agree to come back with me to this land? Shouldn't I take your son back to the land you left?" NRS 5 The servant said to him, "Perhaps the woman may not be willing to follow me to this land; must I then take your son back to the land from which you came?" CEB 6 Abraham said to him, "Be sure you don't take my son back there. NRS 6 Abraham said to him, "See to it that you do not take my son back there. CEB 7 The LORD, God of heaven—who took me from my father's household and from my family's land, who spoke with me and who gave me his word, saying, ‘I will give this land to your descendants'—he will send his messenger in front of you, and you will find a wife for my son there. NRS 7 The Lord, the God of heaven, who took me from my father's house and from the land of my birth, and who spoke to me and swore to me, "To your offspring I will give this land,' he will send his angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. CEB 8 If the woman won't agree to come back with you, you will be free from this obligation to me. Only don't take my son back there." NRS 8 But if the woman is not willing to follow you, then you will be free from this oath of mine; only you must not take my son back there." CEB 9 So the servant put his hand under his master Abraham's thigh and gave him his word about this mission. NRS 9 So the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master and swore to him concerning this matter. CEB 10 The servant took ten of his master's camels and all of his master's best provisions, set out, and traveled to Nahor's city in Aram-naharaim. NRS 10 Then the servant took ten of his master's camels and departed, taking all kinds of choice gifts from his master; and he set out and went to Aram-naharaim, to the city of Nahor. CEB 11 He had the camels kneel down outside the city at the well in the evening, when women come out to draw water. NRS 11 He made the camels kneel down outside the city by the well of water; it was toward evening, the time when women go out to draw water. CEB 12 He said, "LORD, God of my master Abraham, make something good happen for me today and be loyal to my master Abraham. NRS 12 And he said, "O Lord, God of my master Abraham, please grant me success today and show steadfast love to my master Abraham. CEB 13 I will stand here by the spring while the daughters of the men of the city come out to draw water. NRS 13 I am standing here by the spring of water, and the daughters of the townspeople are coming out to draw water. CEB 14 When I say to a young woman, ‘Hand me your water jar so I can drink,' and she says to me, ‘Drink, and I will give your camels water too,' may she be the one you've selected for your servant Isaac. In this way I will know that you've been loyal to my master." NRS 14 Let the girl to whom I shall say, "Please offer your jar that I may drink,' and who shall say, "Drink, and I will water your camels'—let her be the one whom you have appointed for your servant Isaac. By this I shall know that you have shown steadfast love to my master." CEB 15 Even before he finished speaking, Rebekah—daughter of Bethuel the son of Milcah wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother—was coming out with a water jar on her shoulder. NRS 15 Before he had finished speaking, there was Rebekah, who was born to Bethuel son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, coming out with her water jar on her shoulder. CEB 16 The young woman was very beautiful, old enough to be married, and hadn't known a man intimately. She went down to the spring, filled her water jar, and came back up. NRS 16 The girl was very fair to look upon, a virgin, whom no man had known. She went down to the spring, filled her jar, and came up. CEB 17 The servant ran to meet her and said, "Give me a little sip of water from your jar." NRS 17 Then the servant ran to meet her and said, "Please let me sip a little water from your jar." CEB 18 She said, "Drink, sir." Then she quickly lowered the water jar with her hands and gave him some water to drink. NRS 18 "Drink, my lord," she said, and quickly lowered her jar upon her hand and gave him a drink. CEB 19 When she finished giving him a drink, she said, "I'll draw some water for your camels too, till they've had enough to drink." NRS 19 When she had finished giving him a drink, she said, "I will draw for your camels also, until they have finished drinking." CEB 20 She emptied her water jar quickly into the watering trough, ran to the well again to draw water, and drew water for all of the camels. NRS 20 So she quickly emptied her jar into the trough and ran again to the well to draw, and she drew for all his camels. CEB 21 The man stood gazing at her, wondering silently if the LORD had made his trip successful or not. NRS 21 The man gazed at her in silence to learn whether or not the Lord had made his journey successful. CEB 22 As soon as the camels had finished drinking, the man took out a gold ring, weighing a half shekel, and two gold bracelets for her arms, weighing ten shekels. NRS 22 When the camels had finished drinking, the man took a gold nose-ring weighing a half shekel, and two bracelets for her arms weighing ten gold shekels, CEB 23 He said, "Please tell me whose daughter you are. Is there room in your father's house for us to spend the night?" NRS 23 and said, "Tell me whose daughter you are. Is there room in your father's house for us to spend the night?" CEB 24 She responded, "I'm the daughter of Bethuel, who is the son of Milcah and Nahor." NRS 24 She said to him, "I am the daughter of Bethuel son of Milcah, whom she bore to Nahor." CEB 25 She continued, "We have plenty of straw and feed for the camels, and a place to spend the night." NRS 25 She added, "We have plenty of straw and fodder and a place to spend the night." CEB 26 The man bowed down and praised the LORD: NRS 26 The man bowed his head and worshiped the Lord CEB 27 "Bless the LORD, God of my master Abraham, who hasn't given up his loyalty and his faithfulness to my master. The LORD has shown me the way to the household of my master's brother." NRS 27 and said, "Blessed be the Lord, the God of my master Abraham, who has not forsaken his steadfast love and his faithfulness toward my master. As for me, the Lord has led me on the way to the house of my master's kin." CEB 28 The young woman ran and told her mother's household everything that had happened. NRS 28 Then the girl ran and told her mother's household about these things. CEB 29 Rebekah had a brother named Laban, and Laban ran to the man outside by the spring. NRS 29 Rebekah had a brother whose name was Laban; and Laban ran out to the man, to the spring. CEB 30 When he had seen the ring and the bracelets on his sister's arms, and when he had heard his sister Rebekah say, "This is what the man said to me," he went to the man, who was still standing by the spring with his camels. NRS 30 As soon as he had seen the nose-ring, and the bracelets on his sister's arms, and when he heard the words of his sister Rebekah, "Thus the man spoke to me," he went to the man; and there he was, standing by the camels at the spring. CEB 31 Laban said, "Come in, favored one of the LORD! Why are you standing outside? I've prepared the house and a place for the camels." NRS 31 He said, "Come in, O blessed of the Lord. Why do you stand outside when I have prepared the house and a place for the camels?" CEB 32 So the man entered the house. Then Laban unbridled the camels, provided straw and feed for them and water to wash his feet and the feet of the men with him, NRS 32 So the man came into the house; and Laban unloaded the camels, and gave him straw and fodder for the camels, and water to wash his feet and the feet of the men who were with him. CEB 33 and set out a meal for him. But the man said, "I won't eat until I've said something." Laban replied, "Say it." NRS 33 Then food was set before him to eat; but he said, "I will not eat until I have told my errand." He said, "Speak on." CEB 34 The man said, "I am Abraham's servant." NRS 34 So he said, "I am Abraham's servant. CEB 35 The LORD has richly blessed my master, has made him a great man, and has given him flocks, cattle, silver, gold, men servants, women servants, camels, and donkeys. NRS 35 The Lord has greatly blessed my master, and he has become wealthy; he has given him flocks and herds, silver and gold, male and female slaves, camels and donkeys. CEB 36 My master's wife Sarah gave birth to a son for my master in her old age, and he's given him everything he owns. NRS 36 And Sarah my master's wife bore a son to my master when she was old; and he has given him all that he has. CEB 37 My master made me give him my word: ‘Don't choose a wife for my son from the Canaanite women, in whose land I'm living. NRS 37 My master made me swear, saying, "You shall not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I live; CEB 38 No, instead, go to my father's household and to my relatives and choose a wife for my son.' NRS 38 but you shall go to my father's house, to my kindred, and get a wife for my son.' CEB 39 I said to my master, ‘What if the woman won't come back with me?' NRS 39 I said to my master, "Perhaps the woman will not follow me.' CEB 40 He said to me, ‘The LORD, whom I've traveled with everywhere, will send his messenger with you and make your trip successful; and you will choose a wife for my son from my relatives and from my father's household. NRS 40 But he said to me, "The Lord, before whom I walk, will send his angel with you and make your way successful. You shall get a wife for my son from my kindred, from my father's house. CEB 41 If you go to my relatives, you will be free from your obligation to me. Even if they provide no one for you, you will be free from your obligation to me.' NRS 41 Then you will be free from my oath, when you come to my kindred; even if they will not give her to you, you will be free from my oath.' CEB 42 "Today I arrived at the spring, and I said, ‘LORD, God of my master Abraham, if you wish to make the trip I'm taking successful, NRS 42 "I came today to the spring, and said, "O Lord, the God of my master Abraham, if now you will only make successful the way I am going! CEB 43 when I'm standing by the spring and the young woman who comes out to draw water and to whom I say, 'Please give me a little drink of water from your jar,' NRS 43 I am standing here by the spring of water; let the young woman who comes out to draw, to whom I shall say, "Please give me a little water from your jar to drink," CEB 44 and she responds to me, 'Drink, and I will draw water for your camels too,' may she be the woman the LORD has selected for my master's son.' NRS 44 and who will say to me, "Drink, and I will draw for your camels also"—let her be the woman whom the Lord has appointed for my master's son.' CEB 45 Before I finished saying this to myself, Rebekah came out with her water jar on her shoulder and went down to the spring to draw water. And I said to her, ‘Please give me something to drink.' NRS 45 "Before I had finished speaking in my heart, there was Rebekah coming out with her water jar on her shoulder; and she went down to the spring, and drew. I said to her, "Please let me drink.' CEB 46 She immediately lowered her water jar and said, ‘Drink, and I will give your camels something to drink too.' So I drank and she also gave water to the camels. NRS 46 She quickly let down her jar from her shoulder, and said, "Drink, and I will also water your camels.' So I drank, and she also watered the camels. CEB 47 Then I asked her, ‘Whose daughter are you?' And she said, ‘The daughter of Bethuel, Nahor's son whom Milcah bore him.' I put a ring in her nose and bracelets on her arms. NRS 47 Then I asked her, "Whose daughter are you?' She said, "The daughter of Bethuel, Nahor's son, whom Milcah bore to him.' So I put the ring on her nose, and the bracelets on her arms. CEB 48 I bowed and worshipped the LORD and blessed the LORD, the God of my master Abraham, who led me in the right direction to choose the granddaughter of my master's brother for his son. NRS 48 Then I bowed my head and worshiped the Lord, and blessed the Lord, the God of my master Abraham, who had led me by the right way to obtain the daughter of my master's kinsman for his son. CEB 49 Now if you're loyal and faithful to my master, tell me. If not, tell me so I will know where I stand either way." NRS 49 Now then, if you will deal loyally and truly with my master, tell me; and if not, tell me, so that I may turn either to the right hand or to the left." CEB 50 Laban and Bethuel both responded, "This is all the LORD's doing. We have nothing to say about it. NRS 50 Then Laban and Bethuel answered, "The thing comes from the Lord; we cannot speak to you anything bad or good. CEB 51 Here is Rebekah, right in front of you. Take her and go. She will be the wife of your master's son, just as the LORD said." NRS 51 Look, Rebekah is before you, take her and go, and let her be the wife of your master's son, as the Lord has spoken." CEB 52 When Abraham's servant heard what they said, he bowed low before the LORD. NRS 52 When Abraham's servant heard their words, he bowed himself to the ground before the Lord. CEB 53 The servant brought out gold and silver jewelry and clothing and gave them to Rebekah. To her brother and to her mother he gave the finest gifts. NRS 53 And the servant brought out jewelry of silver and of gold, and garments, and gave them to Rebekah; he also gave to her brother and to her mother costly ornaments. CEB 54 He and the men with him ate and drank and spent the night. When they got up in the morning, the servant said, "See me off to my master." NRS 54 Then he and the men who were with him ate and drank, and they spent the night there. When they rose in the morning, he said, "Send me back to my master." CEB 55 Her brother and mother said, "Let the young woman stay with us not more than ten days, and after that she may go." NRS 55 Her brother and her mother said, "Let the girl remain with us a while, at least ten days; after that she may go." CEB 56 But he said to them, "Don't delay me. The LORD has made my trip successful. See me off so that I can go to my master." NRS 56 But he said to them, "Do not delay me, since the Lord has made my journey successful; let me go that I may go to my master." CEB 57 They said, "Summon the young woman, and let's ask her opinion." NRS 57 They said, "We will call the girl, and ask her." CEB 58 They called Rebekah and said to her, "Will you go with this man?" She said, "I will go." NRS 58 And they called Rebekah, and said to her, "Will you go with this man?" She said, "I will." CEB 59 So they sent off their sister Rebekah, her nurse, Abraham's servant, and his men. NRS 59 So they sent away their sister Rebekah and her nurse along with Abraham's servant and his men. CEB 60 And they blessed Rebekah, saying to her, "May you, our sister, become thousands of ten thousand; may your children possess their enemies' cities." NRS 60 And they blessed Rebekah and said to her, "May you, our sister, become thousands of myriads; may your offspring gain possession of the gates of their foes." CEB 61 Rebekah and her young women got up, mounted the camels, and followed the man. So the servant took Rebekah and left. NRS 61 Then Rebekah and her maids rose up, mounted the camels, and followed the man; thus the servant took Rebekah, and went his way. CEB 62 Now Isaac had come from the region of Beer-lahai-roi and had settled in the arid southern plain. NRS 62 Now Isaac had come from Beer-lahai-roi, and was settled in the Negeb. CEB 63 One evening, Isaac went out to inspect the pasture, and while staring he saw camels approaching. NRS 63 Isaac went out in the evening to walk in the field; and looking up, he saw camels coming. CEB 64 Rebekah stared at Isaac. She got down from the camel NRS 64 And Rebekah looked up, and when she saw Isaac, she slipped quickly from the camel, CEB 65 and said to the servant, "Who is this man walking through the pasture to meet us?" The servant said, "He's my master." So she took her headscarf and covered herself. NRS 65 and said to the servant, "Who is the man over there, walking in the field to meet us?" The servant said, "It is my master." So she took her veil and covered herself. CEB 66 The servant told Isaac everything that had happened. NRS 66 And the servant told Isaac all the things that he had done. CEB 67 Isaac brought Rebekah into his mother Sarah's tent. He received Rebekah as his wife and loved her. So Isaac found comfort after his mother's death. NRS 67 Then Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent. He took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother's death.
