REBEKAH, REBECCA (Heb. rivqah, Gr. Rhebekka). The daughter of Bethuel, the sister of Laban, the wife of Isaac, mother of Esau and Jacob. 
In Haran, Abraham's servant Eliezer met Rebekah and successfully persuaded her to become Isaac's wife (Gen 24). Rebekah was loved by Isaac (24:67), but she bore him no children for 20 years. It was only after special intercession by Isaac that God gave twins--Esau and Jacob. Jacob became her favorite and this led her to trick the aged and blind Isaac. Disguised as his brother Esau, Jacob obtained the blessing (27:5-17). When it became evident that Jacob and Esau could no longer live under the same roof, at her suggestion, Jacob fled from home to her relatives in Aram (27:42-46). Rebekah never saw her son again.
