New International Version
22 When the camels had finished drinking, the man took out a gold nose ring(A) weighing a beka[a] and two gold bracelets(B) weighing ten shekels.[b] 23 Then he asked, “Whose daughter are you?(C) Please tell me, is there room in your father’s house for us to spend the night?(D)”
26 Then the man bowed down and worshiped the Lord,(G) 27 saying, “Praise be to the Lord,(H) the God of my master Abraham,(I) who has not abandoned his kindness and faithfulness(J) to my master. As for me, the Lord has led me on the journey(K) to the house of my master’s relatives.”(L)
28 The young woman ran and told her mother’s household about these things.(M) 29 Now Rebekah had a brother named Laban,(N) and he hurried out to the man at the spring. 30 As soon as he had seen the nose ring, and the bracelets on his sister’s arms,(O) and had heard Rebekah tell what the man said to her, he went out to the man and found him standing by the camels near the spring. 31 “Come, you who are blessed by the Lord,”(P) he said. “Why are you standing out here? I have prepared the house and a place for the camels.”
32 So the man went to the house, and the camels were unloaded. Straw and fodder(Q) were brought for the camels, and water for him and his men to wash their feet.(R) 33 Then food was set before him, but he said, “I will not eat until I have told you what I have to say.”
“Then tell us,” Laban said.
34 So he said, “I am Abraham’s servant.(S) 35 The Lord has blessed(T) my master abundantly,(U) and he has become wealthy.(V) He has given him sheep and cattle, silver and gold, male and female servants, and camels and donkeys.(W) 36 My master’s wife Sarah has borne him a son in her old age,(X) and he has given him everything he owns.(Y) 37 And my master made me swear an oath,(Z) and said, ‘You must not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I live,(AA) 38 but go to my father’s family and to my own clan, and get a wife for my son.’(AB)
39 “Then I asked my master, ‘What if the woman will not come back with me?’(AC)
40 “He replied, ‘The Lord, before whom I have walked faithfully,(AD) will send his angel with you(AE) and make your journey a success,(AF) so that you can get a wife for my son from my own clan and from my father’s family.(AG) 41 You will be released from my oath if, when you go to my clan, they refuse to give her to you—then you will be released from my oath.’(AH)
42 “When I came to the spring today, I said, ‘Lord, God of my master Abraham, if you will, please grant success(AI) to the journey on which I have come. 43 See, I am standing beside this spring.(AJ) If a young woman(AK) comes out to draw water and I say to her, “Please let me drink a little water from your jar,”(AL) 44 and if she says to me, “Drink, and I’ll draw water for your camels too,” let her be the one the Lord has chosen for my master’s son.’(AM)
47 “I asked her, ‘Whose daughter are you?’(AS)
“Then I put the ring in her nose(AV) and the bracelets on her arms,(AW) 48 and I bowed down and worshiped the Lord.(AX) I praised the Lord, the God of my master Abraham,(AY) who had led me on the right road to get the granddaughter of my master’s brother for his son.(AZ) 49 Now if you will show kindness and faithfulness(BA) to my master, tell me; and if not, tell me, so I may know which way to turn.”
50 Laban and Bethuel(BB) answered, “This is from the Lord;(BC) we can say nothing to you one way or the other.(BD) 51 Here is Rebekah; take her and go, and let her become the wife of your master’s son, as the Lord has directed.(BE)”
52 When Abraham’s servant heard what they said, he bowed down to the ground before the Lord.(BF) 53 Then the servant brought out gold and silver jewelry and articles of clothing(BG) and gave them to Rebekah; he also gave costly gifts(BH) to her brother and to her mother.
