{Genesis 24:28} And the damsel 5291 ran, 7323 z8799 and told 5046 z8686 [them of] her mother's 517 house 1004 these x428 things. 1697
"And I bowed down my head, and worshipped the LORD, and blessed the LORD God of my master Abraham, which had led me in the right way to take my master's brother's daughter unto his son." {Gen 24:48} + "And her brother and her mother said, Let the damsel abide with us [a few] days, at the least ten; after that she shall go." {Gen 24:55} + "And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was comforted after his mother's [death]." {Gen 24:67} + "And Laban went into Jacob's tent, and into Leah's tent, and into the two maidservants' tents; but he found [them] not. Then went he out of Leah's tent, and entered into Rachel's tent." {Gen 31:33}
her mother's:
Some have conjectured from this, that her father Bethuel was dead; and the person called Bethuel ("Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The thing proceedeth from the LORD: we cannot speak unto thee bad or good." {Gen 24:50}), was a younger brother. This is possible; but as Dr. A. Clarke remarks, the mother's house might be mentioned were even the father alive; for in Asiatic countries, the women have apartments entirely separate from those of the men, in which their little children and grown-up daughters reside with them. This was probably the case here; though, from the whole narrative, it is very probable that Bethuel was dead, as the whole business appears to be conducted by Rebekah's brothers. - Cross Reference Bible Search
