42 “When I came to the spring today, I said, ‘Lord, God of my master Abraham, if you will, please grant successf to the journey on which I have come. 43 See, I am standing beside this spring.g If a young womanh comes out to draw water and I say to her, “Please let me drink a little water from your jar,”i 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.’j

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

46 “She quickly lowered her jar from her shoulder and said, ‘Drink, and I’ll water your camels too.’n So I drank, and she watered the camels also.o

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

“She said, ‘The daughter of Bethuelq son of Nahor, whom Milkah bore to him.’r

“Then I put the ring in her noses and the bracelets on her arms,t 48 and I bowed down and worshiped the Lord.u I praised the Lord, the God of my master Abraham,v who had led me on the right road to get the granddaughter of my master’s brother for his son.w 49 Now if you will show kindness and faithfulnessx to my master, tell me; and if not, tell me, so I may know which way to turn.”
