50 Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, (A)“The thing comes from the Lord; we cannot (B)speak to you either bad or good. 51 (C)Here is Rebekah before you; take her and go, and let her be your master’s son’s wife, as the Lord has spoken.”

52 And it came to pass, when Abraham’s servant heard their words, that (D)he worshiped the Lord, bowing himself to the earth. 53 Then the servant brought out (E)jewelry of silver, jewelry of gold, and clothing, and gave them to Rebekah. He also gave (F)precious things to her brother and to her mother.

54 And he and the men who were with him ate and drank and stayed all night. Then they arose in the morning, and he said, (G)“Send me away to my master.”

55 But her brother and her mother said, “Let the young woman stay with us a few days, at least ten; after that she may go.”

56 And he said to them, “Do not [a]hinder me, since the Lord has prospered my way; send me away so that I may go to my master.”

57 So they said, “We will call the young woman and ask her personally.” 58 Then they called Rebekah and said to her, “Will you go with this man?”

And she said, “I will go.”

59 So they sent away Rebekah their sister (H)and her nurse, and Abraham’s servant and his men.
