What does Genesis 24:64 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

Led by Abraham's servant, the train of camels bearing Rebekah and her entourage are approaching Isaac's home in the Negeb region of Canaan. In the previous verse, he noticed their arrival. Now Rebekah sees Isaac, whom she is about to marry, for the first time. She quickly dismounts from her camel. This is the beginning of another excellent sign: Rebekah, without knowing that this is the man she is being brought to marry, finds him interesting enough to stop and ask questions.
