ASV notes on Genesis 24:15-27 and questions

Faith

First then

The girls passed the test she fulfilled all 3 conditions, first then Eliezer asked what family she came from, and yes, she was the daughter of Bethuel the son of Milcah, (the daughter of Haran, Abraham’s late brother), and Nahor Abraham’s brother. “When the camels had finished drinking, Eliezer took a gold ring weighing a half-shekel and two bracelets for her hands weighing ten shekels in gold

Belonged to the bride

Eliezer took some of the gift meant for the coming bride, a ring and two bracelets of gold and put the ring in her nose and the bracelets on her arms. Eliezer had faith in God and did not consider the possibility of the girl saying no to mary Isaac, the golden rings belonged to the bride.

Where it came from

Eliezer had lived with Abraham for many years, and had learned were the blessings came from, the girl was pretty and nice to look at and she said we have enough room at home you can stay with us and we have food for the camels too. Eliezer could have thanked the girl and embraced her, but Eliezer didn’t focus on the girl, he knew where it all came from; he bowed down to the ground and worshipped YaHaWaH, Eliezer also knew the name of the God of Abraham.

Spoken words, the servants and Rebekah heard it

He said; “Blessed be YaHaWaH, the God of my master Abraham, who has not denied His lovingkindness and His truth to my master. As for me, YaHaWaH led me to the house of my master’s brothers.”

Questions

  1. Are you blessed?
  2. Does the blessing come from people?
  3. Are you unlucky, lucky or blessed?
