And he said, “Blessed be Yahweh, the God of my lord Abraham, who has not forsaken his loving kindness and his faithfulness toward my lord. As for me, Yahweh has guided me on the way to the house of my lord’s relatives.” Bible see other translations

“relatives.” The Hebrew word is “brothers,” but “brothers” was used loosely in Hebrew for any relative, in the same way we call a good friend or fellow member of a group a “brother,” for example, in the army close friends are called “brothers.” If the English word “brother” was used here it might confuse many readers.
