24:57 'Let's call the girl and ask her personally,' they replied.
Vayomeru nikra lana'arah venish'alah et-piha.
24:58 They summoned Rebecca and said to her, 'Do you want to go with this man?'

'I will go,' she replied.
Vayikre'u le-Rivkah vayomeru eleyha hatelechi im-ha'ish hazeh vatomer elech.

24:59 They let their relative Rebecca go, along with her attendant, Abraham's servant, and his men.
Vayeshalechu et-Rivkah achotam ve'et-meniktah ve'et eved Avraham ve'et anashav.



Commentary:

let....go
  (cf. Exodus 5:1). It can also mean 'sent off,' 'bid farewell,' or 'escorted.'

attendant
  Literally, 'nurse.' This may have been Deborah (Genesis 35:8). It may also denote 'childhood companions,' see Genesis 24:61.
