The woman was very beautiful, young, and had not had sexual relations with a man. Going down to the spring, she filled her jug and turned for home.

Then Abraham's servant ran to meet her and asked her, "Please, let me have a sip of water from your jug."

"Drink, sir!" she replied as she quickly lowered her jug on her arm to offer him a drink.

She quickly emptied her jug into the trough and ran to the well to draw again until she had drawn enough water for all ten of the servant's camels.

The man stared at her in silence, waiting to see whether or not the LORD had made his journey successful.

Rachel responded, "Here's my handmaid Bilhah. Go have sex with her. She can bear children on my knees so I can have children through her."

So Rachel gave Jacob her woman servant Bilhah to be his wife, and Jacob had sex with her.
