Chayey Sarah

24:14 If I say to a girl, 'Tip over your jug and let me have a drink,' and she replies, 'Drink, and I will also water your camels,' she will be the one whom You have designated for Your servant Isaac. [If there is such a girl,] I will know that You have granted a favor for my master.'
Vehayah hana'arah asher omar eleyha hati-na chadef ve'eshteh ve'amerah sheteh vegam gemaleycha ashkeh otah hochachta le'avdechah le-Yitschak uvah eda ki-asita chesed im-adoni.


  Or 'indicated,' 'determined,' or 'selected.' There is a question as to whether Torah law allows a person to ask for a sign of this type (see Yad, Avodath Kokhavim 11:4; Raavad ad loc.; Yoreh Deah 179:4 in Hagah).
