Chapter 16 – A Wife for Isaac

The years passed, and then one day something very sad happened. Sarah died. It was a terrible loss to her husband Abraham and her son Isaac. After Sarah’s funeral Abraham called in Eliezer, his most trusted servant, for a serious talk. “Isaac is not a boy anymore,” the old man said. “He’s a grown man, and it’s time he should be getting married. I want you to go to Haran, the city of my mother’s family, and find a wife for him. Promise me you will do this for me. I don’t want him marrying the pagan women in Canaan.
