**Notice 3 years
I have studied in one of the Torah study the 3 years is the year of spiritual building
This gives a clue in vs 63 of our scripture that Yitzchak went out to meditate in the field
Avraham sent Eliezer the eldest servant (Eved)
34 And Eliezer did as Abraham ordered him, and Eliezer swore unto Abraham his master upon this matter; and Eliezer rose up and took ten camels of the camels of his master, and ten men from his master's servants with him, and they rose up and went to Haran, the city of Avraham and Nahor, in order to fetch a wife for Yitzchak the son of Avraham; and
whilst they were gone Avraham sent to the house of Shem and Eber, and they brought from thence his son Yitzchak.
**** according to the book of Yashar Eliezer was thought to be inheritance before the Almight told Avraham that his descendent comes from his own seed (zera) through his wife Sarah
*** the two young men who follow Avraham for Akidah was Eliezer and Yishmael????
**** take note 10 camels 10 men (minyan) key word rose up headed to Haran
And the young woman was of very comely appearance, she was a virgin, and Rivkah was ten years old in those days.
** take note Rivkah was only ten years old ???? still a girl not
yet reach puberty
scripture in vs 14 says young girl (damsel) mean not yet reach puberty
The book of Yasher is very brief in this aspect
And Eliezer rose up in the morning, he and the men that were with him, and he called to the whole household of Bethuel, saying, Send me away that I may go to my master; and they rose up and sent away Rivkah and her nurse Devorah, the daughter of Uz, and they gave her silver and gold, men servants and maid servants, and they blessed her.
Rivkah 's nurse Devorah???mention later in Gen 35:8 Devorah, Rivkah's nurse, died, and she was buried below Beit-El under the oak; and the name of it was called Allon-Bakhut.
45 And Yitzchak was forty years old when he took Rivkah, the daughter of his uncle Bethuel, for a wife.
How old when Rivkah married to Yitzchak?
scripture mention about 10 camels
Gen 24 vs 22 Ten shekels
she took her veil and covered herself.
