Abraham dwelt at Beer-sheba.

6 And Abraham took the wood of

the burnt offering, and claid it upon

Isaac his son; and he took the fired

in his hand, and a knife: and they

went both of them together.

7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham

his father, and said, My father: and

he said, 2 Here am I, my son. And

he said, Behold the fire and the

wood but where is the 3 lamb for a

15 My lord, hearken unto me: the land is worth four hundred shekels of silver; what is that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy dead. 16 And Abraham hearkened Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver, which he had named in the audience of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the merchant.

17 And the field of Ephron, h which was in Machpelah, which was before Mamre, the field, and the cave which was therein, and all the trees that were in the field, that were in all the borders round about, were made sure

18 Unto Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his city.

19 And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre : the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan.

20 And the field, and the cave that is therein, were made sure i unto Abraham for a possession of a buryingplace by the sons of Heth. CHAPTER XXIV.

8 And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then thou shalt be clear from this my oath: only bring not my son thither again. 9 And the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and sware to him concerning that matter.

10 T And the servant took ten camels of the camels of his master, and departed; 2 for all the goods of his master were in his hand: and he arose, and went to Mesopotamia, munto the city of n Nahor.

11 And he made his camels to kneel down without the city by a well of water at the time of the evening, even the time 3 that women go out to draw water. o

12 And he said, O LORD God of my master Abraham, pI pray thee, send me good speed 7 this day, and shew kindness unto my master Abraham.

13 Behold, I stand here by the r well of water; and the daughters of the men of the city come out to draw water:

14 And let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say, Let down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink; and she shall say, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: let the same be she that thou hast appointed for thy servant Isaac; and thereby s shall I know that thou hast shewed kindness unto my master.

15 And it came to pass, before he had done t speaking, that, behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder. 16 And the damsel was 4 very fair to look upon, a virgin, neither had any man known her: and she went down to the well, and filled her pitcher, and came up.

17 And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I pray thee, drink a little water of thy pitcher.

18 And she said, Drink, my lord:

The servant meeteth

GENESIS, XXIV. and she hasted, and let down her B. C. 1857. pitcher upon her hand, and gave him drink.

19 And, when she had done giving him drink, she said, I will draw water for thy camels also, u until they have done drinking.

20 And she hasted, and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and ran again unto the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels. 21 And the man, wondering vat her, held his peace, to wit whether the LORD had made his journey prosperous or not.

22 And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man took a golden earring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets w for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold,

23 And said, Whose daughter art thou? tell me, I pray thee: is there room in thy father's house for us to lodge in?

24 And she said unto him, I am the daughter of Bethuel, the son of Milcah, which she bare unto Nahor.

25 She said moreover unto him, We have both straw and provender enough, and room to lodge in.

26 And the man y bowed down his head, and worshipped the LORD.

29 And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was b Laban: and Laban ran out unto the man, unto the well.

30 And it came to pass, when he saw the earring, and bracelets upon his sister's hands, and when he f Ps. 18.35. heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying, Thus spake the man g ver.3. unto me; that he came unto the man; and, behold, he stood by the h ver. 12. camels at the well.

42 And I came this day unto the well, and said, O LORD God h of my master Abraham, if now thou do prosper i my way which I go;

43 Behold, I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass, that when the virgin cometh forth to draw water, and I say to her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water of thy pitcher to drink;

41 And she say to me, Both drink thou, and I will also draw for thy camels: let the same be the woman whom the LORD hath appointed out k for my master's son.

45 And before I had done speaking in mine heart, I behold, Rebekah came forth with her pitcher on her shoulder; and she went down unto the well, and drew water: and I said unto her, Let me drink, I pray thee.

46 And she made haste, and let down her pitcher from her shoulder, and said, Drink; and I will give thy camels drink also. So I drank, and she made the camels drink also. 47 And I asked her, and said,

52 And it came to pass, that, when Abraham's servant heard their words, he worshipped the LORD, S bowing himself to the earth.

And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.


6 But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away g from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto h the east country.

7 And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years.

8 Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good i old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered k to his people.
