(Rebekah, Rebekka, Rebekke, Rebeka, Rebeque, Revekka) [21st century BC] was the wife of Isaac and grandniece of Abraham. When Abraham's chief servant was sent to find a wife for Isaac, she gave him water and lodging with her family. Arriving on a camel, when she first met Isaac, their love was instant and intense. Theirs was the first monogamous marriage on record. She was chaste, courteous, trusting and industrious. Barren for 20 years, at last, she gave birth to twins. Isaac favored Esau, while Rebecca favored Jacob and helped him deceive his father into giving him the birthright.
