Rebecca receiving from the hands of Eliezer the gifts offered by Abraham. Abraham sent his servant Eliezer to find a companion for Isaac in the distant Mesopotamia, among the members of his own kinship. He swears he will not bring a Canaanite woman back to Isaac. Upon his arrival in the city, Eliezer led his ten camels to a well. "He had not yet finished speaking, and now Rebekah came out, and Bethuel the son of Milka the wife of Nahor the brother of Abraham was born, and she had her jar on her shoulder."
Prefiguring The Annunciation, the biblical subject is taken from Genesis (24: 15-20): charged by Abraham to find a wife for his son Isaac, Eliezer will recognize her when, when she is near a well, Rebecca gives her to drink .
