Locating a Wife for Isaac—A Lesson in Faith and Obedience

Locating a Wife for Isaac—A Lesson in Faith and Obedience

Midrash with Natan Lawrence

Genesis 24:2, So Abraham said. In appointing Eliezer discover a spouse for Isaac, Abraham ended up being deputizing him in order to become the buddy for the bridegroom, or the household agent in this important objective. (To get more with this topic, see notes at John 3:29.)

Genesis 24:2, 9, Your hand under my thigh. (Heb. yarek; see also Gen 47:29) Abraham’s servant literally put their hands on Abraham’s testicles swearing an oath on Abraham’s projected progeny, even as in our contemporary world we spot our fingers regarding the Bible.
