It is forbidden to eat before doing a mitzvah such as lulav
or shofar. Therefore, now that Eliezer had the opportunity
to fulfill the oath he made to Avraham, it was forbidden for him
- 23:2 - Adam and Chava, Avraham and Sarah, Yitzchak and Rivka, Yaakov and Leah.
- 23:2 - That Yitzchak was almost slaughtered.
- 23:6 - Prince of G-d.

- 24:10 - Eliezer carried a document in which Avraham gave all he owned to Yitzchak so that people would want their daughter marry him.
- 24:14 - He sought someone who excelled in performing acts of kindness.
- 24:17 - He saw that the waters of the well rose when she approached.
- 24:29 - Lavan coveted his money.

- 24:39 - His own daughter.
- 24:44 - To the men who accompanied Eliezer.
- 24:50 - That he was wicked.
- 24:58 - I will go even if you don't want me to go.
- 24:60 - That the blessings given to Avraham would continue through her children.
- 25:1 - Hagar.

Rivka had a dilemma. She couldn't bring home a jug of water from
which Eliezer, a total stranger, drank. But if she spilled out
the water, Eliezer would be embarrassed. She solved the dilemma
by giving the water to the camels.|
