Genesis 24:1

And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things.
Read Chapter 24

John Chrysostom

AD 407
So let us listen to sacred Scripture’s account to us: “Abraham was old, advanced in years. The Lord had blessed Abraham in every respect.” Why did it mention this to us? Since he was about to give good care and attention to Isaac, to the point of bringing him a bride, accordingly it mentioned to us the patriarch’s age.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
