And she said to him, “Yes, there is straw, and yes, plenty of feed, and yes, a place to spend the night.” Bible

“yes.” Everett Fox (The Schocken Bible: The Five Books of Moses) translates the particle gam (#01571 גַּם), which can mean “also, moreover, yes” as “yes” in this context because Rebekah is answering the question that Abraham’s servant asked, and confirming that he is welcome to stay. She is not just making a statement about the provisions her family has, but is graciously and enthusiastically extending hospitality—which is clearly demonstrated by the triple “yes.”
