Genesis 24:53-67

53 Then the servant brought out silver and gold jewelry, together with clothing, and gave them to Rivkah. He also gave valuable gifts to her brother and mother. 

54 He and his men then ate and drank and stayed the night.

In the morning they got up; and he said, “Send me off to my master.” 

55 Her brother and mother said, “Let the girl stay with us a few days, at least ten. After that, she will go.” 

56 He answered them, “Don’t delay me, since Adonai has made my trip successful, but let me go back to my master.” 

57 They said, “We will call the girl and see what she says.” 

58 They called Rivkah and asked her, “Will you go with this man?” and she replied, “I will.”

59 So they sent their sister Rivkah away, with her nurse, Avraham’s servant and his men. 

60 They blessed Rivkah with these words: “Our sister, may you be the mother of millions, and may your descendants possess the cities of those who hate them.” 

61 Then Rivkah and her maids mounted the camels and followed the man. So the servant took Rivkah and went on his way.

62 Meanwhile, Yitz’chak, one evening after coming along the road from Be’er-Lachai-Ro’i — he was living in the Negev — 

63 went out walking in the field; and as he looked up, he saw camels approaching. 

64 Rivkah too looked up; and when she saw Yitz’chak, she quickly dismounted the camel. 

65 She said to the servant, “Who is this man walking in the field to meet us?” When the servant replied, “It’s my master,” she took her veil and covered herself.

66 The servant told Yitz’chak everything he had done. 

67 Then Yitz’chak brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent and took Rivkah, and she became his wife, and he loved her. Thus was Yitz’chak comforted for the loss of his mother.
