Let it happen that the girl to whom I will say, ‘Please let down your water jug that I may drink,’ and who responds, ‘Drink, and I will also give your camels a drink,’—let her be the one you have decided upon for your servant Isaac. By this I will know that you have shown kindness to my lord.” Bible see other translations

“let down.” The young woman would have already filled the water jar and put it on her shoulder or on her head to return home, so to give this stranger a drink she would have had to take her water jug down.
