  • 英汉 创24:14 我向哪一个女子说,请你拿下水瓶来,给我水喝,她若说,请喝,我也给你的骆驼喝,愿那女子就作你所预定给你仆人以撒的妻。这样,我便知道你施恩给我主人了。
    May it be that when I say to a girl, `Please let down your jar that I may have a drink,' and she says, `Drink, and I'll water your camels too'--let her be the one you have chosen for your servant Isaac. By this I will know that you have shown kindness to my master."
  • 英汉 创24:15 话还没有说完,不料,利百加肩头上扛着水瓶出来。利百加是彼土利所生的。彼土利是亚伯拉罕兄弟拿鹤妻子密迦的儿子。
    Before he had finished praying, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder. She was the daughter of Bethuel son of Milcah, who was the wife of Abraham's brother Nahor.
  • 英汉 创24:16 那女子容貌极其俊美,还是处女,也未曾有人亲近她。她下到井旁,打满了瓶,又上来。
    The girl was very beautiful, a virgin; no man had ever lain with her. She went down to the spring, filled her jar and came up again.
  • 英汉 创24:17 仆人跑上前去迎着她,说,求你将瓶里的水给我一点喝。
    The servant hurried to meet her and said, "Please give me a little water from your jar."
  • 英汉 创24:18 女子说,我主请喝,就急忙拿下瓶来,托在手上给他喝。
    "Drink, my lord," she said, and quickly lowered the jar to her hands and gave him a drink.

    After she had given him a drink, she said, "I'll draw water for your camels too, until they have finished drinking."
  • 英汉 创24:20 她就急忙把瓶里的水倒在槽里,又跑到井旁打水,就为所有的骆驼打上水来。
    So she quickly emptied her jar into the trough, ran back to the well to draw more water, and drew enough for all his camels.

  • 英汉 创24:22 骆驼喝足了,那人就拿一个金环,重半舍客勒,两个金镯,重十舍客勒,给了那女子,

  • 英汉 创24:23 说,请告诉我,你是谁的女儿,你父亲家里有我们住宿的地方没有。
    Then he asked, "Whose daughter are you? Please tell me, is there room in your father's house for us to spend the night?"

    Then the man bowed down and worshiped the LORD,
  • 英汉 创24:27 说,耶和华我主人亚伯拉罕的神是应当称颂的,因他不断地以慈爱诚实待我主人。至于我,耶和华在路上引领我,直走到我主人的兄弟家里。
    saying, "Praise be to the LORD, the God of my master Abraham, who has not abandoned his kindness and faithfulness to my master. As for me, the LORD has led me on the journey to the house of my master's relatives."
  • 英汉 创24:28 女子跑回去,照着这些话告诉她母亲和她家里的人。
    The girl ran and told her mother's household about these things.
  • 英汉 创24:29 利百加有一个哥哥,名叫拉班,看见金环,又看见金镯在他妹子的手上,并听见他妹子利百加的话,说那人对我如此如此说。拉班就跑出来往井旁去,到那人跟前,见他仍站在骆驼旁边的井旁那里。
    Now Rebekah had a brother named Laban, and he hurried out to the man at the spring.
  • 英汉 创24:30 见上节
    As soon as he had seen the nose ring, and the bracelets on his sister's arms, and had heard Rebekah tell what the man said to her, he went out to the man and found him standing by the camels near the spring.
  • 英汉 创24:31 便对他说,你这蒙耶和华赐福的,请进来,为什么站在外边?我已经收拾了房屋,也为骆驼预备了地方。
    "Come, you who are blessed by the LORD," he said. "Why are you standing out here? I have prepared the house and a place for the camels."
  • 英汉 创24:32 那人就进了拉班的家。拉班卸了骆驼,用草料喂上,拿水给那人和跟随的人洗脚,
    So the man went to the house, and the camels were unloaded. Straw and fodder were brought for the camels, and water for him and his men to wash their feet.
  • 英汉 创24:33 把饭摆在他面前,叫他吃,他却说,我不吃,等我说明白我的事情再吃。拉班说,请说。
    Then food was set before him, but he said, "I will not eat until I have told you what I have to say." "Then tell us," Laban said.

    "'He replied, `The LORD, before whom I have walked, will send his angel with you and make your journey a success, so that you can get a wife for my son from my own clan and from my father's family.
  • 英汉 创24:41 只要你到了我本族那里,我使你起的誓就与你无干。他们若不把女子交给你,我使你起的誓也与你无干。
    Then, when you go to my clan, you will be released from my oath even if they refuse to give her to you--you will be released from my oath.
  • 英汉 创24:42 我今日到了井旁,便说,耶和华我主人亚伯拉罕的神阿,愿你叫我所行的道路通达。
    "'When I came to the spring today, I said, `O LORD, God of my master Abraham, if you will, please grant success to the journey on which I have come.
  • 英汉 创24:43 我如今站在井旁,对那一个出来打水的女子说,请你把你瓶里的水给我一点喝。

  • 英汉 创24:47 我问她说,你是谁的女儿,她说,我是密迦与拿鹤之子彼土利的女儿。我就把环子戴在她鼻子上,把镯子戴在她两手上。

  • 英汉 创24:50 拉班和彼土利回答说,这事乃出于耶和华,我们不能向你说好说歹。

  • 英汉 创24:51 看哪,利百加在你面前,可以将她带去,照着耶和华所说的,给你主人的儿子为妻。
    Here is Rebekah; take her and go, and let her become the wife of your master's son, as the LORD has directed."
  • 英汉 创24:52 亚伯拉罕的仆人听见他们这话,就向耶和华俯伏在地。
    When Abraham's servant heard what they said, he bowed down to the ground before the LORD.

  • 英汉 创24:55 利百加的哥哥和她母亲说,让女子同我们再住几天,至少十天,然后她可以去。
    But her brother and her mother replied, "Let the girl remain with us ten days or so; then you may go."
  • 英汉 创24:56 仆人说,耶和华既赐给我通达的道路,你们不要耽误我,请打发我走,回我主人那里去吧。
    But he said to them, "Do not detain me, now that the LORD has granted success to my journey. Send me on my way so I may go to my master."
  • 英汉 创24:57 他们说,我们把女子叫来问问她。
    Then they said, "Let's call the girl and ask her about it."
  • 英汉 创24:58 就叫了利百加来,问她说,你和这人同去吗?利百加说,我去。

    And they blessed Rebekah and said to her, "Our sister, may you increase to thousands upon thousands; may your offspring possess the gates of their enemies."
  • 英汉 创24:61 利百加和她的使女们起来,骑上骆驼,跟着那仆人,仆人就带着利百加走了。

  • 英汉 创24:66 仆人就将所办的一切事都告诉以撒。
    Then the servant told Isaac all he had done.
  • 英汉 创24:67 以撒便领利百加进了他母亲撒拉的帐棚,娶了她为妻,并且爱她。以撒自从他母亲不在了,这才得了安慰。
