Isaac

Genesis 27: 30 – 41

Eliezar at the Well

10  And the servant took ten of his master’s camels, and departed; for all the goods of his master were in his hand; and he arose, and went to Mesopotamia, to the city of Nahor. 11  And he made his camels kneel down outside the city by a well of water at the time of the evening, the time that women go out to draw water. 12  And he said, O Lord God of my master Abraham, I beseech you, send me good speed this day, and show kindness to my master Abraham. 13  Behold, I stand here by the well of water; and the daughters of the men of the city come out to draw water; 14  And let it come to pass, that the girl to whom I shall say, Let down your water jar, I beg you, that I may drink; and she shall say, Drink, and I will give your camels drink also; let the same be she whom you have appointed for your servant Isaac; and thereby shall I know that you have shown kindness to my master. 15  And it came to pass, before he had finished speaking, that, behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham’s brother, with her water jar upon her shoulder. 16  And the girl was very pretty to look upon, a virgin, and no man had known her; and she went down to the well, and filled her water jar, and came up.

Isaac 2006

After Isaac is placed on the altar, the text doesn’t mention him again until he meets his future wife, 96 verses later.  Frozen in time, he cannot forget the terror.

Isaac Returns

The midrash relates that Isaac returns to his mother and tells her of his ordeal after the Akeidah.
