1. Of Damascus, the lawful heir of Abraham, should he die childless, Genesis 15:2 . He is generally assumed to be the "eldest servant," who was sent, sixty-five years afterwards, to obtain a wife for Isaac, Genesis 24:1-67 . But as the name of the latter is not given; as Abraham had near relatives, Lot and others; and as there is no evidence that he ever lived in Damascus, some think Eliezer must have been a near relative of Abraham residing at Damascus; and that "steward of my house" and "born in my house"-literally son of my house, Genesis 15:2,3 -mean the same thing, the lawful family heir.
2. Several others of this name are mentioned, Exodus 18:4 1 Chronicles 15:24 27:16 2 Chronicles 20:37 Luke 3:29 .
