And it came to pass before  he had done speaking that Behold Rebeckah came out  who was born to Bethuel son of Milcha the wife of Nahor,  Abrahams brother with her pitcher upon her shoulder. and  the damsel being a Virgin very fair to look upon such as  the servent of Abraham had not seen neither had any man  known like unto her and she went down to the well and  filled her pitcher and came up. and the servent ran  to meet her and said let me I pray thee drink a little  watter of thy pitcher. and she said drink my lord and  she hasted and let down her pitcher upon her hand, and  gave him drink. and when she had done giving him drink  she said, I will draw for thy Camels also, <un>till <untill> they have  done drinking. and she hasted, and emtied her pitcher in to the trough; and ran again unto the well to draw  and drew for all his Camels. And the man wondering  at her, held his peace, pondering in his heart wheather  the Lord had made his journey prosperous or not.  and it came pass as the Camels had done drinking  that the man took a gold<en> earing earring of half a she kel weight and two braceletts for her hands of ten she kels weight of gold, and said Whose daughter art thou  tell me I pray thee and is there ro[o]m in thy fathers  house for us to lodge in and she said unto him, I am  am the daughter of Bethuel the son of Milcha, which  she bear unto Nahor. she said moreover unto him  we have both straw and provender enough and  room to lodge in. and the man bowed down his head  and worshiped the Lord. and he said Blessed is the Lord [p. 59]
