Abrahm wished to see his son Isaac wed before he passed away. Yet he feared that if Isaac chose a woman of the Cannanites, he would be led astray from the worship of the true God. Therefore Abrahm sent his head servant or sterward, Eliezer, back to Haran, in Syria, to find Isaac a religious mate.
Eliezer made the long and weary journey to Haran. At length, toward the close of the last exhausting day of travel, he reched the outskirts of the city, where he seated himself with his tired camels and attendants beside a well. Eliezer did not know who to go about his task, so he prayed to the Lord to aid him by sending to the well the woman whom He destined for Isaac's wife. Eliezer asked that she be the one who should give him a drink at his request, both to him and his camels.
Even as Eliezer closed his prayer, a young woman came. He asked her for a drink of water from her pitcher, and she respectfully gave Eliezer a drink.
