from the daughters of the
whom I am living,

and my own relatives and
get a wife for my son Isaac.”
The servant asked him,
“What if the woman is unwilling to come back with me to this land?Shall I then take your son
back to the country you came from?”

of his master Abraham and swore an oath to him
