What does Genesis 24:62 mean?

The focus of the story of the marriage of Isaac and Rebekah now turns to Isaac. This if the first we see of him in this chapter. It's also the first we have seen of him since he was nearly sacrificed by Abraham in obedience to the Lord (Genesis 22:1–14). We will learn later that Isaac is 40 years old (Genesis 25:20). Here we see him living in the Negeb. Either Abraham and his estate had moved again after living in Hebron, or Isaac is living apart from Abraham. He has just returned from Beer-lahai-roi.
