And he made the camels to kneel down outside the city by the well of water at the time of evening, the time that women go out to draw water. (Genesis 24:11)
וַיַּבְרֵךְ הַגְּמַלִּים מִחוּץ לָעִיר, אֶל-בְּאֵר הַמָּיִם, לְעֵת עֶרֶב, לְעֵת צֵאת הַשּׁאֲבת
Abraham sends his servant to find a wife for Abraham’s son, Isaac. The servant brings his camels to the well in search of a woman. He says, “Whoever offers water not only to me, but to my camels as well, she is the one.” (24:14) This is what Rebecca does, just moments later…she is the one!
