So they sent away Rebekah their sister with the one who had nursed and raised her, and Abraham’s servant and his men. Bible see other translations

“the one who had nursed and raised her.” The Hebrew is simply “her nurse,” but that would be confusing today. The wet nurse not only nursed and cared for the baby, but also often played a large part in raising the child. We learn later that this nurse was called “Deborah,” and she was with Rebekah for her whole life (Gen. 35:8).
