ዘፍጥረት 24:1-67

የይስሐቅና የርብቃ ጋብቻ

1በዚህ ጊዜ አብርሃም ሸመገለ፤ ዕድሜውም ገፋ፤ እግዚአብሔርም (ያህዌ) አብርሃምን በሁሉ ነገር ባረከው። 2አብርሃም የንብረቱ ሁሉ ኀላፊ፣ የቤቱ ሁሉ አዛዥ24፥2 ወይም ታላቅ የሆነውን አረጋዊ አገልጋዩን እንዲህ አለው፤ “እጅህን ከጭኔ በታች አድርግ፤ 3ልጄን፣ በመካከላቸው ከምኖር ከከነዓናውያን ሴቶች ልጆች ጋር እንዳታጋባው በሰማይና በምድር አምላክ በእግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ማልልኝ። 4ነገር ግን ወደ አገሬ፣ ወደ ገዛ ዘመዶቼ ሄደህ ለልጄ ለይስሐቅ ሚስት ትፈልግለታለህ።”

5አገልጋዩም፣ “ሴቲቱ ከእኔ ጋር ወደዚህ ምድር ለመምጣት ፈቃደኛ ባትሆን ምን አደርጋለሁ? ልጅህን አንተ ወደ መጣህበት አገር ልውሰደውን?” ሲል ጠየቀው።

6አብርሃምም እንዲህ አለው፤ “ምንም ቢሆን ልጄን ወደዚያ እንዳትመልሰው ተጠንቀቅ፤ 7ከአባቴ ቤት፣ ከትውልድ አገሬ ያወጣኝና፣ ‘ለዘርህ ይህችን ምድር እሰጣለሁ’ ብሎ በመሐላ ተስፋ የገባልኝ የሰማይ አምላክ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም ያህዌ) መልአኩን ከፊትህ ይልካል፤ ለልጄም ሚስት ከዚያ ታመጣለታለህ። 8ሴቲቱ አብራህ ወደዚህ ለመምጣት ፈቃደኛ ካልሆነች ግን ካስማልሁህ መሐላ ነጻ ትሆናለህ፤ ነገር ግን ወደዚያ አትውሰደው” አለው። 9ስለዚህም አገልጋዩ እጁን ከጌታው ከአብርሃም ጭን በታች አድርጐ ስለዚህ ጒዳይ ማለለት።

10አገልጋዩም ከጌታው ግመሎች መካከል ዐሥሩን ወሰደ፤ ምርጥ ምርጡንም ዕቃ ሁሉ ጭኖ፣ የናኮር ከተማ ወደምትገኝበት ወደ ሰሜን ምዕራብ መስጴጦምያ ተጓዙ። 11እዚያም እንደ ደረሰ፣ ግመሎቹን ከከተማው ውጭ የውሃ ጒድጓድ አጠገብ አንበረከከ፤ ጊዜውም ጥላ የበረደበት፣ ሴቶች ውሃ ለመቅዳት የሚወጡበት ነበር።

12ከዚያም እንዲህ ሲል ጸለየ፣ “የጌታዬ የአብርሃም አምላክ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም ያህዌ) ሆይ፤ በዛሬው ቀን ጒዳዬን አሳካልኝ፤ ለጌታዬ ለአብርሃም ቸርነትህን አሳየው፤ 13እነሆ፤ እኔ በዚህ ምንጭ አጠገብ ቆሜአለሁ፤ የከተማዪቱ ሴቶች ልጆች ውሃ ለመቅዳት ወደዚህ ይመጣሉ። 14እንግዲህ፣ ‘እንስራሽን አውርጂና ውሃ አጠጪኝ’ ስላት፣ ‘እንካ ጠጣ፤ ግመሎችህንም ላጠጣልህ’ የምትለኝ ቈንጆ እርሷ ለባሪያህ ለይስሐቅ የመረጥካት ትሁን፤ በዚህም ለጌታዬ ቸርነትህን እንዳሳየኸው ዐውቃለሁ።”

15እርሱም ገና ጸሎቱን ሳይጨርስ፣ እነሆ፤ ርብቃ እንስራዋን በትከሻዋ ላይ አድርጋ ብቅ አለች። እርሷም ከአብርሃም ወንድም ከናኮርና ከሚስቱ ከሚልካ የተወለደው የባቱኤል ልጅ ነበረች። 16ልጃገረዲቱ እጅግ ውብና ወንድ ያልደረሰባት ድንግል ነበረች። ወደ ምንጩም ወርዳ ውሃ በእንስራዋ ሞልታ ተመለሰች።

17አገልጋዩም ወደ እርሷ ፈጥኖ ቀረበና፣ “እባክሽ ከእንስራሽ ጥቂት ውሃ አጠጪኝ” አላት።

18እርሷም፣ “ጌታዬ፤ ጠጣ” አለችው፤ ፈጥናም እንስራዋን ወደ እጇ አውርዳ አጠጣችው።

19እርሱን ካጠጣችው በኋላ፣ “ግመሎችህም ጠጥተው እስኪጠግቡ ድረስ ውሃ እቀዳላቸዋለሁ” አለች። 20ፈጥናም በእንስራው ውስጥ የነበረውን ውሃ በገንዳ ውስጥ ገለበጠች፤ እየሮጠች ከጒድጓዱ ውሃ እያመላለሰች ግመሎቹ እስኪበቃቸው ድረስ አጠጣቻቸው። 21አገልጋዩም አንዲት ቃል ሳይናገራት፣ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) መንገዱን አሳክቶለት እንደሆነ ወይም እንዳልሆነ ለማወቅ ልጂቱን በአንክሮ ይከታተል ነበር። 22ግመሎቹ ጠጥተው ካበቁ በኋላ ሰውዬው ግማሽ ሰቅል24፥22 5.5 ግራም ያህል ነው፤ የሚመዝን የወርቅ ቀለበትና ዐሥር ሰቅል24፥22 ግራም ያህል ነው። የሚመዝኑ ሁለት የወርቅ አምባሮች አውጥቶ፣ 23“ለመሆኑ አንቺ የማን ልጅ ነሽ? በአባትሽ ቤት የምናድርበት ስፍራ ይገኝ እንደሆነ፣ እባክሽ ንገሪኝ” ብሎ ጠየቃት።

24እርሷም፣ “እኔ፣ ሚልካ ለናኮር የወለደችለት፣ የባቱኤል ልጅ ነኝ” አለችው፤ 25ደግሞም፣ “በቤታችን በቂ ገለባና ድርቈሽ እንዲሁም ለእናንተ የሚሆን ማደሪያ አለን” አለችው።

26ሰውየውም ተደፍቶ ለእግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ሰገደ፤ 27እንዲህም አለ፤ “ቸርነቱንና ታማኝነቱን ከጌታዬ ያላጓደለ፣ እኔንም ወደ ጌታዬ ዘመዶች ቤት የመራኝ፣ የጌታዬ የአብርሃም አምላክ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) የተመሰገነ ይሁን።”

28ልጂቷ ሮጣ ሄዳ፣ የሆነውን ሁሉ ለእናቷ ቤተ ሰቦች ነገረች። 29ርብቃም ላባ የተባለ ወንድም ነበራት፤ እርሱም ሰውየው ወዳለበት የውሃ ጒድጓድ ፈጥኖ ሄደ። 30እኅቱ ያደረገችውን የወርቅ ቀለበትና አምባሮች እንዳየ፣ እንዲሁም ርብቃ ሰውየው ያላትን ስትናገር እንደ ሰማ፣ ወዲያውኑ ወደ ሰውየው ሄደ፤ በምንጩም ዳር ከግመሎቹ አጠገብ ቆሞ አገኘው፤ 31እርሱንም “አንተ የእግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ቡሩክ ሆይ፤ ና፤ እዚህ ውጭ የቆምኸው ለምንድን ነው? እነሆ፤ ለአንተ ማረፊያ ለግመሎችህም ማደሪያ አዘጋጅቻለሁ” አለው።

32ሰውየው ከላባ ጋር ወደ ቤት ሄደ፤ የግመሎቹ ጭነት ተራግፎ ገለባና ድርቈሽ ተሰጣቸው፤ ለእርሱና አብረውት ለነበሩት ሰዎች የእግር ውሃ ቀረበላቸው። 33ለሰውየውም ማዕድ ቀረበለት፤ እርሱ ግን፣ “የመጣሁበትን ጒዳይ ሳልናገር እህል አልቀምስም” አለ።

ላባም፣ “እሺ፤ ተናገር” አለው።

34እርሱም እንዲህ አለ፤ “እኔ የአብርሃም አገልጋይ ነኝ፤ 35እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ጌታዬን እጅግ ባርኮታል፤ እርሱም በልጽጓል፤ በጎችና ከብቶች፣ ብርና ወርቅ፣ ወንድና ሴት አገልጋዮች፣ ግመሎችና አህዮች ሰጥቶታል። 36የጌታዬ ሚስት ሣራ በስተርጅናዋ24፥36 ወይም በስተርጅናው ወንድ ልጅ ወልዳለታለች፤ ጌታዬም ያለውን ሀብት ሁሉ ለልጁ ሰጥቶታል። 37ጌታዬ እንዲህ ሲል አማለኝ፤ ‘ከዚህ ከምኖርበት አገር፣ ከከነዓናውያን ሴቶች ልጆች ጋር ልጄን አታጋባው፤ 38ነገር ግን ወደ አባቴ ቤት፣ ወደ ገዛ ወገኖቼ ሄደህ ለልጄ ሚስት አምጣለት’።

39“እኔም ጌታዬን፣ ‘ሴቲቱ ከእኔ ጋር ወደዚህ ለመምጣት ባትፈቅድስ?’ ብዬ ጠየቅሁት።

40“እርሱም እንዲህ አለኝ፤ ‘አካሄዴን በፊቱ ያደረግሁ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) መልአኩን ከአንተ ጋር ይልካል፤ ከገዛ ወገኖቼና ከአባቴ ቤት፣ ለልጄ ሚስት እንድታመጣለት መንገድህን ያቃናል። 41ወደ ወገኖቼ ከሄድህ፣ ከመሐላው የተፈታህ ትሆናለህ፤ እነርሱ እንኳ ልጂቱን አንሰጥም ቢሉህ፣ ከመሐላው ንጹሕ ትሆናለህ’ አለኝ።

42“እኔም ዛሬ ወደ ውሃው ጒድጓድ ስደርስ እንዲህ ብዬ ጸለይሁ፤ ‘የጌታዬ የአብርሃም አምላክ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም ያህዌ) ሆይ፤ ፈቃድህ ቢሆን የመጣሁበትን ጒዳይ አቃናልኝ፤ 43እነሆ፤ በምንጩ አጠገብ ቆሜአለሁ፤ ውሃ ልትቀዳ የምትመጣውን ኮረዳ፣ “ከእንስራሽ ውሃ አጠጪኝ” ስላት፣ 44እሺ ጠጣ፤ ለግመሎችህም እቀዳላቸዋለሁ” የምትለኝ እርሷ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ለጌታዬ ልጅ የመረጣት ትሁን።’

45“በልቤ የምጸልየውን ጸሎት ገና ሳልጨርስ፣ ርብቃ እንስራዋን በትከሻዋ ላይ አድርጋ ብቅ አለች፤ ወደ ምንጩም ወርዳ ውሃ ቀዳች። እኔም፣ ‘እባክሽ፤ ውሃ አጠጪኝ’ አልኋት።

46“እርሷም ፈጥና እንስራዋን ከትከሸዋ አውርዳ፣ ‘ጠጣ፤ ግመሎችህንም አጠጣለሁ’ አለች። እኔም ጠጣሁ፤ ግመሎቹንም አጠጣች።

47“ለመሆኑ የማን ልጅ ነሽ” ብዬ ጠየቅኋት።

“እርሷም፣ ‘ሚልካ ለናኮር የወለደችለት፣ የባቱኤል ልጅ ነኝ’ አለችኝ።

“ከዚያም ቀለበቱን አደረግሁላት፤ አምባሩንም በእጇ አስገባሁላት። 48ተደፍቼም ለእግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ሰገድሁ፤ ለጌታዬ ወንድም የልጅ ልጅ የሆነችውን ቈንጆ፣ ለጌታዬ ልጅ እንዳገኝለት በቀና መንገድ የመራኝ የጌታዬ የአብርሃምን አምላክ እግዚአብሔርን (ኤሎሂም ያህዌ) አመሰገንሁ። 49እንግዲህ አሁን ለጌታዬ በጎነትና ታማኝነት የምታሳዩ ከሆነ ሐሳባችሁን አስታውቁኝ፤ ካልሆነ ግን ቍርጡን ንገሩኝና የምሄድበትን ልወስን።”

50ላባና ባቱኤል እንዲህ ሲሉ መለሱ፤ “ነገሩ ከእግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ስለ ሆነ በዚህም ሆነ በዚያ ምንም ማለት አንችልም። 51ርብቃ ይቻትልህ፤ ይዘሃት ሂድ፤ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) እንደ ተናገረው ለጌታህ ልጅ ሚስት ትሁነው።”

52የአብርሃም አገልጋይ ያሉትን በሰማ ጊዜ በምድር ላይ ተደፍቶ ለእግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ሰገደ። 53ከዚያም የወርቅና የብር ጌጣጌጥ፣ እንዲሁም ልብሶች አውጥቶ ለርብቃ ሰጣት፤ ደግሞም ለወንድሟና ለእናቷ ከፍ ያለ ዋጋ ያላቸው ስጦታዎች ሰጣቸው። 54እርሱና አብረውት የነበሩ ሰዎችም በልተው፣ ጠጥተው እዚያው ዐደሩ፤

በማግስቱ ጠዋት ሲነሡ፣ የአብርሃም አገልጋይ፣ “እንግዲህ ወደ ጌታዬ እንድመለስ አሰናብቱኝ” አለ።

55ወንድሟና እናቷም፣ “ልጂቷ ከእኛ ጋር ቢያንስ ዐሥር ቀን ያህል ትቈይና ከዚያ በኋላ ልትሄድ24፥55 ወይም ልትሄጂ ትችላለች።” ብለው መለሱ።

56እርሱ ግን፣ “እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) መንገዴን አቅንቶልኛልና አታዘግዩኝ፤ ወደ ጌታዬ እንድመለስ አሰናብቱኝ” አላቸው።

57እነርሱም፣ “ለማናቸውም ልጂቱን እንጥራትና ትጠየቅ” አሉ። 58ስለዚህ ርብቃን ጠርተው፣ “ከዚህ ሰው ጋር መሄድ ትፈቅጃለሽ?” ሲሉ ጠየቋት።

እርሷም፣ “አዎን፤ እሄዳለሁ” አለች።

59ከዚያም እኅታቸውን ርብቃን ከሞግዚቷ ጋር፣ እንዲሁም የአብርሃምን አገልጋይና አብረውት የነበሩትን ሰዎች አሰናበቷቸው። 60ርብቃንም እንዲህ ብለው መረቋት፤

“እኅታችን ሆይ፤ እልፍ አእላፋት ሁኚ፤

ዘርሽ የጠላቶቹን ደጆች ይውረስ”።

61ከዚያም ርብቃና አገልጋዮቿ ተዘጋጁ፤ ግመሎቻቸውም ላይ ወጥተው ሰውየውን ተከተሉት፤ በዚህ ሁኔታ አገልጋዩ ርብቃን ይዟት ሄደ።

62በዚህን ጊዜ፣ ይስሐቅ በኔጌብ ይኖር ስለ ነበር፣ ከብኤርላሃይሮኢ መጥቶ ነበር። 63እርሱም አንድ ምሽት ላይ በጥሞና24፥63 በዕብራይስጥ የዚህ ቃል ትርጒም አይታወቅም ለመቈየት ወደ መስክ ወጣ አለ፤ ቀና ብሎ ሲመለከትም፣ ግመሎች ከሩቅ ሲመጡ አየ። 64ርብቃም እንደዚሁ አሻግራ ስትመለከት፣ ይስሐቅን አየች፤ ከግመልም ወረደች፤ 65አገልጋዩንም፣ “ይህ ሊገናኘን በመስኩ ውስጥ ወደዚህ የሚመጣው ሰው ማን ነው?” ስትል ጠየቀችው።

አገልጋዩም፣ “ጌታዬ ነው” ብሎ መለሰላት፤ እርሷም መሸፈኛዋን ተከናነበች።

66አገልጋዩም ያደረገውን ሁሉ ለይስሐቅ ነገረው። 67ይስሐቅም ርብቃን ወደ እናቱ ወደ ሣራ ድንኳን ይዟት ገባ፤ አገባትም፤ ሚስት ሆነችው፤ እርሱም ወደዳት። ይስሐቅም ከእናቱ ሞት ተጽናና።

Genesis 24:1-67

Abraham’s Servant Finds a Wife for Isaac

1By that time Abraham was very old. The Lord had blessed Abraham in every way. 2The best servant in his house was in charge of everything Abraham had. Abraham said to him, “Put your hand under my thigh. 3The Lord is the God of heaven and the God of earth. I want you to make a promise to me in his name. I’m living among the people of Canaan. But I want you to promise me that you won’t get a wife for my son from their daughters. 4Instead, promise me that you will go to my country and to my own relatives. Get a wife for my son Isaac from there.”

5The servant asked Abraham, “What if the woman doesn’t want to come back with me to this land? Then should I take your son back to the country you came from?”

6“Make sure you don’t take my son back there,” Abraham said. 7“The Lord, the God of heaven, took me away from my father’s family. He brought me out of my own land. He made me a promise. He said, ‘I will give this land to your family after you.’ The Lord will send his angel ahead of you. So you will be able to get a wife for my son from there. 8The woman may not want to come back with you. If she doesn’t, you will be free from your promise. But don’t take my son back there.” 9So the servant put his hand under Abraham’s thigh. He promised to do what his master wanted.

10The servant chose ten of his master’s camels and left. He loaded the camels with all kinds of good things from his master. He started out for Aram Naharaim and made his way to the town of Nahor. 11He stopped near the well outside the town. There he made the camels get down on their knees. It was almost evening, the time when women go out to get water.

12Then he prayed, “Lord, you are the God of my master Abraham. Make me successful today. Be kind to my master Abraham. 13I’m standing beside this spring. The daughters of the people who live in the town are coming out here to get water. 14I will speak to a young woman. I’ll say to her, ‘Please lower your jar so I can have a drink.’ Suppose she says, ‘Have a drink of water, and I’ll get some for your camels too.’ Then let her be the one you have chosen for your servant Isaac. That’s how I’ll know you have been kind to my master.”

15Before he had finished praying, Rebekah came out. She was carrying a jar on her shoulder. She was the daughter of Milkah’s son Bethuel. Milkah was the wife of Abraham’s brother Nahor. 16The young woman was very beautiful. No man had ever slept with her. She went down to the spring. She filled her jar and came up again.

17The servant hurried to meet her. He said, “Please give me a little water from your jar.”

18“Have a drink, sir,” she said. She quickly lowered the jar to her hands and gave him a drink.

19After she had given him a drink, she said, “I’ll get water for your camels too. I’ll keep doing it until they have had enough to drink.” 20So she quickly emptied her jar into the stone tub. Then she ran back to the well to get more water. She got enough for all his camels. 21The man didn’t say a word. He watched her closely. He wanted to learn whether the Lord had given him success on the journey he had made.

22The camels finished drinking. Then the man took out a gold nose ring. It weighed about a fifth of an ounce. He also took out two gold bracelets. They weighed about four ounces. 23Then he asked, “Whose daughter are you? And please tell me something else. Is there room in your father’s house for us? Can we spend the night there?”

24She answered, “I’m the daughter of Bethuel. He’s the son Milkah had by Nahor.” 25She continued, “We have plenty of straw and feed for your camels. We also have room for you to spend the night.”

26Then the man bowed down and worshiped the Lord. 27He said, “I praise the Lord, the God of my master Abraham. The Lord hasn’t stopped being kind and faithful to my master. The Lord has led me on this journey. He has brought me to the house of my master’s relatives.”

28The young woman ran home. She told her mother’s family what had happened. 29Rebekah had a brother named Laban. He hurried out to the spring to meet the man. 30Laban had seen the nose ring. He had seen the bracelets on his sister’s arms. And he had heard Rebekah tell what the man had said to her. So Laban went out to the man. He found him standing by the camels near the spring. 31“The Lord has given you his blessing,” he said. “So come with me. Why are you standing out here? I’ve prepared my house for you. I also have a place for the camels.”

32So the man went to the house. The camels were unloaded. Straw and feed were brought for the camels. And water was brought for him and his men to wash their feet. 33Then food was placed in front of him. But he said, “I won’t eat until I’ve told you what I have to say.”

“Then tell us,” Laban said.

34So he said, “I am Abraham’s servant. 35The Lord has blessed my master greatly, and he has become rich. The Lord has given him sheep and cattle, silver and gold. He has also given him male and female servants, camels and donkeys. 36My master’s wife Sarah had a son by him when she was old. He has given that son everything he owns. 37My master made me promise him. He said, ‘I’m living in the land of the people of Canaan. But promise me that you won’t get a wife for my son from their daughters. 38Instead, go to my father’s family and to my own relatives. Get a wife for my son there.’

39“Then I asked my master, ‘What if the woman won’t come back with me?’

40“He replied, ‘I have walked faithfully with the Lord. He will send his angel with you. He will give you success on your journey. So you will be able to get a wife for my son. She will be from my own relatives and from my father’s family. 41When you go to my relatives, suppose they refuse to give her to you. Then you will be free from the promise you made to me.’

42“Today I came to the spring. I said, ‘Lord, you are the God of my master Abraham. Please make me successful on this journey I’ve made. 43I’m standing beside this spring. A young woman will come out to get water. I’ll say to her, “Please let me drink a little water from your jar.” 44Suppose she says, “Have a drink of water, and I’ll get some for your camels too.” Then let her be the one the Lord has chosen for my master’s son.’

45“Before I finished praying in my heart, Rebekah came out. She was carrying a jar on her shoulder. She went down to the spring and got water. I said to her, ‘Please give me a drink.’

46“She quickly lowered her jar from her shoulder. She said, ‘Have a drink, and I’ll get water for your camels too.’ So I drank. She also got water for the camels.

47“I asked her, ‘Whose daughter are you?’

“She said, ‘The daughter of Bethuel. He’s the son Milkah had by Nahor.’

“Then I put the ring in her nose. I put the bracelets on her arms. 48And I bowed down and worshiped the Lord. I praised the Lord, the God of my master Abraham. He had led me on the right road. He had led me to get for my master’s son the granddaughter of my master’s brother. 49Now will you be kind and faithful to my master? If you will, tell me. And if you won’t, tell me. Then I’ll know which way to turn.”

50Laban and Bethuel answered, “The Lord has done all of this. We can’t say anything to you one way or the other. 51Here is Rebekah. Take her and go. Let her become the wife of your master’s son, just as the Lord has said.”

52Abraham’s servant heard what they said. So he bowed down to the Lord with his face to the ground. 53He brought out gold and silver jewelry and articles of clothing. He gave all of them to Rebekah. He also gave expensive gifts to her brother and her mother. 54Then Abraham’s servant and the men who were with him ate and drank. They spent the night there.

When they got up the next morning, Abraham’s servant said, “Send me back to my master.”

55But her brother and her mother replied, “Let the young woman stay with us ten days or so. Then you can go.”

56But he said to them, “Don’t make me wait. The Lord has given me success on my journey. Send me on my way so I can go to my master.”

57Then they said, “Let’s get Rebekah and ask her about it.” 58So they sent for her and asked, “Will you go with this man?”

“Yes, I’ll go,” she said.

59So they sent their sister Rebekah on her way with Abraham’s servant and his men. They also sent Rebekah’s servant with her. 60And they gave Rebekah their blessing. They said to her,

“Dear sister, may your family grow

by thousands and thousands.

May they take over

the cities of their enemies.”

61Then Rebekah and her female servants got ready. They got on their camels to go back with the man. So Abraham’s servant took Rebekah and left.

62By that time Isaac had come from Beer Lahai Roi. He was living in the Negev Desert. 63One evening he went out to the field. He wanted to spend some time thinking. When he looked up, he saw camels approaching. 64Rebekah also looked up and saw Isaac. She got down from her camel. 65She asked the servant, “Who is that man in the field coming to meet us?”

“He’s my master,” the servant answered. So she covered her face with her veil.

66Then the servant told Isaac everything he had done. 67Isaac brought Rebekah into the tent that had belonged to his mother Sarah. And he married Rebekah. She became his wife, and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother died.
