Daughter of Betheul, wife of Isaac, mother of two nations, Edom and Israel, granddaughter of Abraham’s brother Nahor.
Abraham settled in Haran north of Mesopotamia along a trade route. Following Sarah’s death at the age of one hundred and twenty seven, Abraham sent his servant Eliezer to the city of Nahor to obtain a wife for Isaac, not wanting him to marry a Canaanite woman. Upon arrival, Eliezer prayed, asking God, that the woman who would give him and his camels to drink should be the one for Isaac. Before he finished speaking, Rebekah, a beautiful virgin, came in answer to his prayer (Genesis 24:12-21). She agreed to go with the servant immediately even though her brother and mother wanted her to wait at least 10 days. When she was leaving her family blessed her saying:
“Our sister, may you become The mother of thousands of ten thousands; And may your descendants possess The gates of those who hate them.” Genesis 24:60
Arriving at Beer Lahai Roi in the south where Isaac lived, Isaac brought Rebekah into his mother Sarah’s tent and she became his wife.
After Rebekah was barren for nineteen years, Isaac pleaded with the Lord and the Lord granted his plea, and Rebekah conceived twins who struggled in her womb. The Lord told her that two nations were in her womb and the older (Esau) would serve the younger (Jacob).
When Isaac lived in Gerar, like Abraham, he told the inhabitants that she was his sister for fear of his life. Esau sold his birthright to Jacob for a pot of porridge. When Isaac was old, he asked Esau for food. Rebekah helped Jacob deceive Isaac to receive Esau’s blessing. Esau was angry and when Rebekah found out, she spoke to Isaac who sent Jacob to find a wife among Rebekah’s family. Rebekah gave Jacob her nurse, Deborah, who apparently helped with the birth of eleven of Jacob’s sons, dying before Rachel died giving birth to Benjamin.
Rebekah was buried with Abraham, Sarah, and Isaac (Genesis 49:31)
