What Was Rebecca’s Age When Given Away In Marriage? “Na’ar”

Discover The Truth

In previous two piece articles on Isaac and Rebekah, which can be accessed here and here, we established their respective ages when they were married. We showed from the Bible and ancient scholars that Rebecca was between the ages of 3-10, when she was married off to 40-year-old Isaac. In this article we seek to look at a Hebrew word closer to give further evidence that Rebecca was very young, coinciding with the two article’s evidence that she could not have been older than 10-years-old at the time of her marriage.

A particular verse from Genesis describes how young Rebeccah was, just before she was given away in marriage:

“The girl (na’ar) was a very attractive virgin. No man had ever had sexual intercourse with her. She went down to the spring, filled her jar, and came back.” – Genesis 24:16 (GOD’S WORD Translation)

Although some later manuscripts…

  1. It is laughable that the insincere and loathsome trolls that plague this blog and other places try and use the age of marriage as some sort of argument against Islam. When you consider that apart from all the historical data we have that all around the world during those times girls were betrothed or promised to older men and that it was common practice. It is also clear from their history that this was their normal practice.

    Experts agree that Joseph was a very old man and Marriage in Israelite times once a girl was betrothed, sexual intimacy was allowed. The Bible say anything against it but actually promotes it. What is also hilarious is that the same hypocrites who are now on the defensive come out with nonsense like “oh well that is from catholic scriptures so we don’t believe that”.

    It is so funny because Catholicism IS and WAS Christianity while protestants are a sect. Catholosim came hundreds of years before and have the original (Not original as in the actual enjil) scriptures and doctrine. so it is funny how they can throw away things as an when it suits them.

    Without catholicism, there would be no christinaity. ALL the original church fathers were catholic All Christianity in its different guises came from them because they were the authority. I also believe they have 6-7 extra gospels. So to summarize Roman Catholics are the Original leaders and church fathers and to throw away their scriptures or evidence destroys the religion itself.

    The evidence outside the bible also shows that with no shadow of a doubt that all around the world cultures did the same practice at the time.

    So what do we learn from all this? Absolutely nothing because we already knew that the trolls on here were hypocritical and heretical liars.

  2. Paul,

    What these pagan trolls need to understand is that their whole religion was based on the reaffirmation. Could you imagine if an Islamic Khalifa did what King Henry did and change the whole state religion and burn people at the stake just because he wanted to get shot of his wife/divorced and get his end away with with another lol !!

    it is illogical for them to have any beef with catholicism since jesus himself is a being “fully god and fully human” prays through his ow inter-mediating created and finite flesh.

    veneration of saints and using them as intermediaries is born out of the
    idea of incarnation

    how is it that mary ws able to carry ad support god? how is that possible? she must be a great intermediary

    if god himself prays through the flesh, then catholics have the right to pray through the flesh too.

  4. Yawn.

    Rebecca and her father were not born simultaneously as you seem to believe.

    Mohammed, however, did lust after a six year old, and had sex with her when she was 9. The poor girl never had children which means that she probably suffered severe damage to her reproductive organs from having been forced to have sex with a grown man as such a young age.

    Stop trying to defend pedophilia.
