Rebecca

  • Old Abraham sent his chief servant on a trip to his homeland with the important task of finding a suitable wife for his son Isaac.  While the servant was talking to some shepherds at a well, Rebecca (also known as Rebekah) came along and gave all the animals a drink. She was kind enough to offer Abraham's servant and his camels a drink of water from the well.
  • This part of Rebecca's story is found in Genesis, chapter 24, verses 1 to 20.
  • Rebecca appears in our Babble.on and Ballyhoo! games.

Clothes

  • Rebecca came up with a plan to help Jacob trick his old blind dad into thinking he was the older twin Esau. She dressed Jacob in Esau's clothes and put goat skins on his arms and neck so he would smell and feel like his brother. Isaac was fooled and gave Jacob the blessing instead of Esau. When Esau returned home he was furious. Rebecca told Jacob to flee to her brother Laban's until Esau calmed down.
  • This part of Rebecca's story is found in Genesis, chapter 27, verses 1 to 40.
  • Special clothes are also found in the stories of Joseph's coloured coat, Hannah's annual visit to Samuel and John the Baptist's rough clothes.
