Rebekah was a very beatiful girl. Before she married Isaac she lived with her father Bethuel. There she was found by the master servant of Abraham. She then took her maids with her and left.

Rebekah was barren. But Isaac prayed to the Lord for her and she became pregnant. She gabe birth to twins: Esau and Jacob.

Rebekah loved Jacob more than Esau. When Isaac was old, Rebekah overheard a conversation with Esau. Isaac told Esau to get some wild game so that Isaac could bless him. Rebekah then ordered Jacob to get some goats. She cooked it to a meal that Isaac liked. Then she put Esau's clothes on Jacob and made Jacob's skin like Esau's and sent him to bring the food to Isaac. Jacob was then blessed by Isaac.

When she realized, that Esau wanted to kill Jacob because of this, she sent him to her brother Laban in Haran.

Rebekah had a nurse called Deborah.
