Rebekah Marries Isaac

Genesis 24:61–67

61 And Rebekah arose, and her damsels, and they rode upon the camels, and followed the man: and the servant took Rebekah, and went his way.
62 And Isaac came from the way of the well Lahai-roi; for he dwelt in the south country.
63 And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide: and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming.
64 And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she lighted off the camel.
65 For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore she took a veil, and covered herself.
66 And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done.
67 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.

Sister Elaine S. Dalton said:

“. . . The best part of this love story is when Rebekah first saw Isaac and he first saw her. It doesn’t say this in the Bible, but I think it was love at first sight! For ‘virtue loveth virtue; [and] light cleaveth unto light’ (D&C 88:40). When Isaac went out to meet the caravan, Rebekah ‘lighted off [her] camel’ (Genesis 24:64). And then it says, ‘And he loved her’ (Genesis 24:67). This is where I sigh!

“For . . . Rebekah . . . , standing in holy places was not easy. Being not moved was not easy. . . . The water from the well was heavy, and departing from [her] familiar home . . . and former [life] certainly was not easy. But [she] made correct choices. [She was] guided by the Holy Ghost. [She was] virtuous, and [she] prepared [herself] to make and keep sacred covenants. The Savior descended through Rebekah’s lineage. Did she know then that this would happen? No! Do your choices now matter? Yes!”
