Isaac and Rebekah

This is a simplified version of the Bible story found in Genesis 24, written for children to understand. For the original version, please refer to the Bible passage.

Once upon a time, there was a man named Abraham who was very old. God had blessed Abraham with many things, and he wanted his son, Isaac, to marry a good woman. But he did not want Isaac to marry someone from the nearby Canaanite people. So, he called his oldest servant, who was in charge of all his household, and asked him to find a wife for Isaac from his old homeland.

Abraham told his servant to go to his old homeland and find a wife for Isaac from his relatives, and not from the Canaanites. The servant was worried that the woman may not be willing to follow him back to the land where Isaac was, and he asked Abraham if he could take Isaac back to the old homeland instead. But Abraham insisted that he would not take Isaac back to his old homeland, and that God would send an angel to help the servant find a wife for Isaac.

So, the servant took ten of Abraham’s camels and set out on his journey. He traveled a long way and stopped at a well in the city of Nahor in Mesopotamia. The servant prayed to God to show him the right woman for Isaac. He prayed that the woman who would offer to give him a drink and would also offer to water his camels would be the one chosen by God for Isaac.

Just then, a woman named Rebekah came to the well to get some water. She was very kind and offered to give the servant a drink of water. Then, she even offered to water all of his camels too! The servant was very happy because he knew that God had answered his prayer and had led him to the right woman for Isaac.

The servant asked Rebekah’s family if she could marry Isaac. He told them that he was sent by Abraham to find a wife for his son and that he had prayed to God to help him find the right woman. Rebekah’s family agreed, and the servant gave Rebekah some beautiful jewelry as a gift.

Rebekah and the servant set out on their journey to meet Isaac. When Isaac saw Rebekah, he knew that she was the perfect woman for him. They got married, and Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death. Rebekah became Isaac’s wife, and they lived happily ever after.
