Parasha Chaye Sarah
Sarah dies at the age of 127 after finding out about the AkedatItzjak.
And Abraham pays a high fee to buy the best place where to bury Sarah, Mearat Hamajpelah (double cave), in Hebron, where Adam and Chava´s bodies laid. And he buries her there.
At the age of 140, Abraham sends Eliezer, his loyal servant, in search of a good wife for his son Itzjak.
And Abraham makes Eliezer swear: “that you will not take a wife for my son of the daughters of the Canaanites among whom I dwell; but you shall go to my country and to my kindred, and take a wife for my son Itzjak...”
Hashem travels with 10 camels in order to fulfill his mission....
Eliezer prays to Hashem: “Behold, I stand here by the well ofwater, and the daughters of the men of the city come out to draw water.”
“Let it come to pass that the maiden to whom I shall say, ‘Please, dip down your pitcher that I may drink,’ and she shall say, ‘Drink, and I will give your camels to drink also’—she is theone You have appointed for Your servant Itzjak.”
As he finishes his tefila RIVKA appears, beautiful. And Eliezer asks her for water, and she cordially gives him to drink and his camels as well.
When Eliezer asks her for her family, Rivka answers that she is Bethuel´s, the son of Nachor,
Abraham´s brother´s, daughter.
Eliezer thanks Hashem!!
Rivka invites him to stay at her house. And Eliezer meets her father Bethuel, and his brother Laban. And Rivka's engagement to Itzjak is formalized.
Eliezer in the name of Abraham, gives Rivka beautiful gifts ofgold and silver and garments.
And Rivka returns with Eliezer to encounter her fiancé.
Itzjak went out to pray when he sees camels approaching. While Rivka covered herself with a veil when she saw him.
And at the age of 40 Itzjak marries Rivka, and he married her and loved her. Itzjak was comforted by his wife after his mother´s death.
Abraham takes a new wife, Keturah (Hagar), and fathers six additional sons, but Itzjak is designated as his only heir. Abraham dies at age 175 and is buried by Itzjak and Ishmael, beside Sarah in Mearat Hamajpelah.
And Hashem blesses Itzjak.
Ishmael has numerous descendants and dies at the age of 137.
