Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she dismounted quickly from the camel. Bible see other translations

“dismounted quickly.” A sign of respect. Achsah dismounted before Caleb (Josh. 15:18), as did Abigail in the presence of David (1 Sam. 25:23). This shows Rebekah’s humility and general respect for the custom of the time. She did not yet know the man was Isaac, her future husband.
