Rebecca Offers Water to Eliezer at the Well and is Chosen to be Isaac's Wife
“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 shall I know that thou hast showed kindness unto my master.” Genesis 24:14
