Parsha Chayei Sarah Aliyah 5

Bereishit (Genesis) 24:53-67

53The servant brought out objects of silver and gold, and garments, and gave them to Rivkah; and delicious fruits he gave to her brother and her mother. 54They ate and drank, he and the men who were with him, and they spent the night; when they arose next morning, he said, “Send me to my master.”

55Her brother and mother said, “Let the maiden remain with us a year are ten months; then she will go.” 56He said to them, “Do not delay me now that has HaShem had made my journey successful. Send me, and I will go to my master.” 57And they said, “Let us call the maiden and ask her decision.”

58They called Rivkah and said to her, “Will you go with this man?” And she said, “I will go.”

59So they escorted Rivkah their sister, and her nurse, as well as Abraham’s servant and his men. 60They blessed Rivkah and said to her, “Our sister, may you come to be thousands of myriads, and may your offspring inherit the gate of its foes.”

61Then Rivkah arose and her maidens; they rode upon the camels and proceeded after the man; the servant took Rivkah and went.

62Now, Yitzchak came from having gone to Beer-lahai-roi, for he dwelt in the south country. 63Yitzchak went out supplicate in the field towards evening and he raised his eyes and saw, and behold! camels were coming. 64And Rivkah raised her eyes and saw Yitzchak; she inclined while upon the camel. 65And she said to the servant, “Who is that man walking in the field toward us?”

And the servant said, “He is my master.” She then took the veil and covered herself. 66The servant told Yitzchak all the things he had done. 67And Yitzchak brought her into the tent of Sarah his mother; he married Rivkah, she became his wife, and he loved her; and thus was Yitzchak consoled after his mother.
